A hypothetical model of the DYRKP (STD1) function in response to nutrient deprivation. We propose that DYRKP negatively regulates the sink capacity in response to both nutrient and energy signals. DYRKP is induced in response to nutrient limitation, and would be active in conditions of low energy status. Disruption of DYRKP in std1 allows sustained synthesis of reserve compounds, thereby increasing electron sink capacity and maintaining a high photosynthetic rate
