Composite binding site formation

Binding of Protein TIFY 6B (TIFY6B) to Coronatine-insensitive protein 1 (COI1), an F-box substrate recognition subunit of the SCF E3 ubiquitin ligase, depends on binding of the plant hormone jasmonate to COI1, as this pre-assembled complex provides a composite binding site for the degron motif in TIFY6B. Subsequent ubiquitylation of TIFY6B by the SCF targets this transcriptional repressor for proteasomal degradation, a pre-requisite for the transcriptional response to jasmonate.

(3) Protein TIFY 6B (TIFY6B)

This is a sequential switch. The interactions in this switch take place in a defined order. The order is defined by numbers to the left of each interaction. More than one interaction can occur in each step, these interactions occur independently but are necessary for future step
