Arabidopsis seedlings grown for 14 d without phosphate (P) exhibited stunted growth and other visible symptoms associated with P deficiency. RNA contents in shoots decreased nearly 90%, relative to controls. In shoots, expression of Pht1;2, encoding an inducible high-affinity phosphate transporter, increased threefold, compared with controls, and served as a molecular marker for P limitation. Transcript levels for five enzymes (aspartate transcarbamoylase, ATCase, EC 2.1.3.2; carbamoyl… CONTINUE READING
