Although iron is plentiful, it exists primarily in its insoluble form and is therefore not freely available to plants. Thus, complex strategies involving chelators, production of reductive agents, reductase activities, proton-mediated processes, specialized storage proteins, and others, act in concert to mobilize iron from the environment into the plant and within the plant. Because of its fundamental role in plant productivity and ultimately in human nutrition, several unsolved and central… CONTINUE READING
