Stomatal pores located on the plant epidermis regulate CO(2) uptake for photosynthesis and the loss of water by transpiration. The opening and closing of the pore is mediated by turgor-driven volume changes of two surrounding guard cells. These highly specialized cells integrate internal signals and environmental stimuli to modulate stomatal aperture for plant survival under diverse conditions. Modulation of transcription and mRNA processing play important roles in controlling guard-cell… CONTINUE READING
