Plants produce compounds in roots that are transported to shoots via the xylem sap. Some of these compounds are vital for signalling and adaptation to environmental stress such as drought. In this study, we screened the xylem sap using mass spectrometry to quantify the changes in new and previously identified sap constituents under extended drought. We… CONTINUE READING
