Plants constantly face changing environments that can be hostile. One strategy for adapting to such challenges consists of transiently modulating protein activity by attaching small molecules to proteins. These modifier molecules can also be proteins themselves, like the Small Ubiquitin-like Modifier (SUMO). Valentin Hammoudi explores the involvement of SUMO conjugation in plant defense signaling and its role in acclimation to elevated temperatures.
