Does anoxia tolerance involve altering the energy currency towards PPi?


Oxygen deficit is an important abiotic stress influencing plants, because this condition results in an 'energy crisis'. Most species only survive short periods of anoxia, but several wetland species tolerate prolonged anoxia. Transcriptomic and proteomic studies, using anoxia-tolerant rice and anoxia-intolerant Arabidopsis, have provided evidence for the… (More)
