The Coenzyme A Biosynthetic Enzyme Phosphopantetheine Adenylyltransferase Plays a Crucial Role in Plant Growth, Salt/Osmotic Stress Resistance, and Seed Lipid Storage
Coenzyme A (CoA) is an essential cofactor in the metabolism of both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms and a universal five-step pathway is utilized to synthesize CoA from pantothenate. Null mutations in two of the five steps of this pathway led to embryo lethality and therefore viable reduction-of-function mutations are required to further study its role in plant biology. In this article, we have characterized a viable Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) T-DNA mutant affected in the...[Show more]
