Phosphate is an essential nutrient for plant viability. It is well-established that phosphate starvation triggers membrane lipid remodeling, a process that converts significant portion of phospholipids to non-phosphorus-containing galactolipids. This remodeling is mediated by either phospholipase C (PLC) or phospholipase D (PLD) in combination with phosphatidate phosphatase (PAP). Two PLC genes, NPC4 and NPC5, and PLD genes, PLDzeta1 and PLDzeta2, are shown to be involved in the remodeling… CONTINUE READING
