Balancing metabolites in drought: the sulfur assimilation conundrum

Chan, Kai Xun; Wirtz, Markus; Phua, Su Yin; Estavillo, Gonzalo; Pogson, Barry


A key plant response to drought is the accumulation of specific sets of metabolites that act as osmoprotectants, osmolytes, antioxidants, and/or stress signals. An emerging question is: how do plants regulate metabolism to balance the 'competing interests' between metabolites during stress? Recent research connects primary sulfur metabolism (e.g., sulfate transport in the vasculature, its assimilation in leaves, and the recycling of sulfur-containing compounds) with the drought stress response....[Show more]
