We have characterized the function of a plant R2R3-MYB transcription factor, Arabidopsis thaliana MYB20 (AtMYB20). Transgenic plants overexpressing AtMYB20 (AtMYB20-OX) enhanced salt stress tolerance while repression lines (AtMYB20-SRDX) were more vulnerable to NaCl than wild-type plants. Following NaCl treatment, the expressions of ABI1, ABI2 and AtPP2CA… CONTINUE READING
