Nicotianamine synthase: Gene isolation, gene transfer and application for the manipulation of plant iron assimilation


Basic cellular processes such as electron transport in photosynthesis and respiration require the precise control of iron homeostasis. To mobilise iron, plants have evolved at least two different strategies. The non-proteinogenic amino acid nicotianamine is an essential component of both pathways. We briefly review the characterisation of the nicotianamine… (More)
