Calcium ion (Ca(2+)) is one of the very important ubiquitous intracellular second messenger molecules involved in many signal transduction pathways in plants. The cytosolic free Ca(2+) concentration ([Ca(2+)](cyt)) have been found to increased in response to many physiological stimuli such as light, touch, pathogenic elicitor, plant hormones and abiotic stresses including high salinity, cold and drought. This Ca(2+) spikes normally result from two opposing reactions, Ca(2+) influx through… CONTINUE READING
