In plants, water vapour is released into the atmosphere through stomata in a process called transpiration. Abscisic acid (ABA) is a key phytohormone that facilitates stomatal closure through its action on guard cells. Recently, ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter genes, AtABCG25 and AtABCG40, were shown to be involved in ABA transport and responses. However, the functions of many other AtABCG family genes are still unknown. Here, we identified another ABCG gene (AtABCG22) that is required… CONTINUE READING
