Abscisic acid (ABA) is an essential component in the wound signalling cascade. Increased levels of endogenous ABA were observed after wounding and shown to be a requisite for wound-induced expression of the proteinase inhibitor II genes. We have taken advantage of the dominant character of the Arabidopsis abi1-1 mutation, to investigate whether ABl1 has a function in ABA signalling in response to wounding. Transgenic tomato plants carrying copies of either the wild-type ABI1 or the mutant abi1… CONTINUE READING
