Factors involved in the rise of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase-kinase activity caused by salinity in sorghum leaves


Salinity increases phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase kinase (PEPCase-k) activity in sorghum leaves. This work has been focused on the mechanisms responsible for this phenomenon. The light-triggered expression of SbPPCK1 gene, accountable for the photosynthetic C4-PEPCase-k, is controlled by a complex signal transduction chain involving phospholipases C and D… (More)
