Several evidences revealed the interaction between phytochrome-mediated light signals and plant hormones abscisic acid (ABA) pathway in Arabidopsis. However, interaction between ABA signaling and phytochrome-mediated light signaling in mediating rice growth and development remain unclear. In the present study, we analyzed effects of PhyB-mediated light signals on ABA metabolism and ABA responses using rice wild type (WT) and the phyB mutant. It was observed that transcript levels of ABA… CONTINUE READING
