Plants have developed various regulatory pathways to adapt to environmental stresses. In this study, we identified Arabidopsis MKKK20 as a regulator in the response to osmotic stress. mkkk20 mutants were found to be sensitive to high concentration of salt and showed higher water loss rates than wild-type (WT) plants under dehydration conditions.

The nitrogenase enzyme system catalyzes the ATP (adenosine triphosphate)-dependent reduction of dinitrogen to ammonia during the process of nitrogen fixation. Nitrogenase consists of two proteins: the iron (Fe)-protein, which couples hydrolysis of ATP to electron transfer, and the molybdenum-iron (MoFe)-protein, which contains the dinitrogen binding site.(More)
The nitrogenase iron (Fe) protein performs multiple functions during biological nitrogen fixation, including mediating the mechanistically essential coupling between ATP hydrolysis and electron transfer to the nitrogenase molybdenum iron (MoFe) protein during substrate reduction, and participating in the biosynthesis and insertion of the FeMo-cofactor into(More)
AtSFT12, an Arabidopsis Qc-SNARE protein, is localized to Golgi organelles and is involved in salt and osmotic stress responses via accumulation of Na + in vacuoles. To reduce the detrimental effects of environmental stresses, plants have evolved many defense mechanisms. Here, we identified an Arabidopsis Qc-SNARE gene, AtSFT12, involved in salt and osmotic(More)
S-RBP11, a chloroplast protein, which was isolated using activation tagging system, is shown to be the first Arabidopsis small RNA-binding group protein involved in oxidative and salt stress responses. Activation tagging is one of the most powerful tools in reverse genetics. In this study, we isolated S-RBP11, encoding a small RNA-binding protein in(More)
AtNAP , an Arabidopsis NAC transcription factor family gene, functions as a negative regulator via transcriptional repression of AREB1 in salt stress response. AtNAP is an NAC family transcription factor in Arabidopsis and is known to be a positive regulator of senescence. However, its exact function and underlying molecular mechanism in stress responses(More)
