Biological Data

Biological description Phytohormone and endogenous lanthionine synthetase C-like 2 (LANCL2) ligand. Regulates dormancy of plant seeds and other stress responses in plants. Able to regulate the expression of hundreds of plant genes via complex interactions with several intracellular signaling systems. Stimulates the activity of innate immune cells, insulin-releasing pancreatic Β cells and plays an important role in managing glucose homeostasis. Also stimulates proliferation of human mesenchymal and hematopoietic stem cells. Can induce gene regulations as part of the chemically induced CRISPR–dCas9 system.
