Abscisic Acid: Metabolism, Transport and Signaling by Da-Peng Zhang

By Da-Peng Zhang

This publication offers a complete assessment of all features of the molecular and cellphone biology of abscisic acid (ABA) metabolism, shipping and sign transduction, protecting our present knowing of ABA in addition to study tendencies. the rural value of ABA metabolism, shipping and sign transduction can be mentioned. The phytohormone ABA regulates many features of plant improvement and performs a important function in plant model to environmental stresses. during the last few a long time, substantial advances were made within the examine of ABA metabolism, delivery and sign transduction, enormously deepening our realizing of the underlying mechanisms of ABA functionality on the molecular, cellphone and whole-plant point and assisting us enhance vegetation’ environmental tolerance. This e-book offers a important source for researchers and complex scholars drawn to plant biology and agriculture.

Endo et al. 1 ABA Biosynthesis—Two Distinct Routes of ABA Biosynthesis Abscisic acid (ABA) is a C15 sesquiterpene containing fifteen carbon atoms in its structure that originates from isoprene known as isopentenyl pyrophosphate (IPP). Now, ABA is known to be synthesized via two distinct pathways (Nambara and Marion-Poll 2005; Oritani and Kiyota 2003; Schwartz and Zeevaart 2010). One is the direct pathway that occurs in phytopathogenic fungi. The other is the indirect pathway that operates in plants.

1991; Galpaz et al. 2008; Marin et al. 1996; Rock and Zeevaart 1991). VDE may not be responsible for ABA biosynthesis, as the Arabidopsis npq1 mutant defective in the VDE gene accumulated significant amounts of epoxycarotenoids such as violaxanthin and neoxanthin that are precursors of ABA (Niyogi et al. 1998). 2). There are two possible substrates for NCED in plants, the 9-cis isomers of violaxanthin and neoxanthin (Fig. 2). 8 %, respectively) of the total epoxyxanthophyll content. 6 %, respectively (North et al.

1986). Based on this notion, Siewers et al. (2004) tried to knock out two genes in Botrytis cinerea, BcCPR1 and BcABA1, encoding P450 oxidoreductase and P450, respectively. The ABA level in the Bccpr1 mutant was reduced compared with the wild type. ABA production was completely abolished in the Bcaba1 mutant (Siewers et al. 2004). The same group also found three additional genes located around the BcABA1 gene on the genome (Siewers et al. 2006). These genes were named BcABA2, BcABA3, and BcABA4 and encoded P450, an unknown protein and a short-chain dehydrogenase/reductase, respectively (Siewers et al.
