Drought-induced proline accumulation observed in many plant species has led to the hypothesis that further increases in proline accumulation would promote drought tolerance. Here we discuss both previous and new data showing that proline metabolism and turnover, rather than just proline accumulation, functions to maintain growth during water limitation.(More)
Several studies have used short term dehydration, osmotic stress or Abscisic Acid (ABA) treatments to identify the initial protein phosphorylation-dephosphorylation responses to drought and low water potential or ABA treatments. However, longer term drought acclimation leads to altered expression of many kinases and phosphatases suggesting that it may also(More)
