Abstract:

 Plants are often affected by various adverse environments during growth and development as a result
of being sessile. Therefore, plants have developed sophisticated regulatory mechanisms to cope with the stresses.
Brassinosteroid (BR) is a type of endogenous steroidal phytohormones, which regulate various biological processes
throughout plant’s life-cycle. Brassinazole resistant (BZR) family is a plant-specific transcription factor family and
plays essential roles in BR signaling pathway. In this paper, we summarized structure of BZR family proteins and
their biological functions in BR signaling pathway especially in oil crops. The unsettled issues in BZR-associated
research are discussed and prospected. It was to provide an overview of BR-mediated molecular regulatory net⁃
works, and facilitate genetic improvement of oil crop stress resistance and yield.

Key words:  , brassinosteroid (BR);brassinazole resistant (BZR);stress response;growth and development
