Description: 
F-box proteins (E3 ubiquitin ligases) functioning as hormone receptors: first found with auxin and subsequently with other plant hormones and also now being found for signaling ligands in animals. A gaseous hormone receptor: the ethylene receptor (most comparable to interest in identifying the NO receptor in animals).
