Abscisic acid (ABA) plays a key role in plant growth and development. The effect of ABA in plants mainly depends on its concentration, which is determined by a balance between biosynthesis and catabolism of ABA. In this study, we characterize a unique UDP-glucosyltransferase (UGT), UGT71C5, which plays an important role in ABA homeostasis by glucosylating(More)
Formaldehyde (HCHO) is a major indoor air pollutant. Plants can be used to remove HCHO from polluted air because they can use HCHO as a carbon source to incorporate it into one-carbon (C1) metabolism. However, high concentrations of exogenous HCHO cause damages to plants. Therefore, genetic engineering is an effective measure to improve ability of plants to(More)
