Arabidopsis thaliana expresses four nitrilases, three of which (NIT1, NIT2 and NIT3) are able to convert indole-3-acetonitrile to indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), the plant growth hormone, while the isozyme NIT4 is a beta-cyano-l-alanine hydratase/nitrilase. NIT3 promoter activity is marginal in leaves or roots of vegetative plants and undetectable in bolting and flowering plants, but its level increases strongly when plants experience sulphur deprivation. No other nitrilase genes respond to sulphur… CONTINUE READING
