Understanding the Role of Chloroplast Signalling in Plant Development and Drought Tolerance
3’-phosphoadenosine 5’-phosphate (PAP) was recently proposed as a new chloroplast retrograde signal that accumulates during drought stress. PAP is a by-product of secondary sulfur assimilation, generated by SULFOTRANSFERASES (SOTs) upon transferring of the sulfate group from 3’-phosphoadenosine 5’-phosphosulfate (PAPS) to sulfate acceptor molecules. PAP is efficiently degraded by the SAL1 phosphatase into inorganic phosphate and adenosine...[Show more]
