Cell wall composition contributes to the control of transpiration efficiency in Arabidopsis thaliana
To identify loci in Arabidopsis involved in the control of transpirational water loss and transpiration efficiency (TE) we carried out an infrared thermal imaging-based screen. We report the identification of a new allele of the Arabidopsis CesA7 cellulose synthase locus designated AtCesA7irx3-5 involved in the control of TE. Leaves of the AtCesA7irx3-5 mutant are warmer than the wild type (WT). This is due to reduced stomatal pore widths brought about by guard cells that are significantly...[Show more]
