Plants being sessile are challenged by biotic and abiotic stresses. Osmotic adjustment has been shown to be an effective component of stress tolerance, and accumulation of osmoprotectants (proline, glycine betaine, gamma-aminobutyric acid and sugars) is a common response observed in different plant systems. Information on the metabolic pathways of these compatible solutes for their regulation, enzymes involved and compartmentalisation are well characterised in most important plant species. Such… CONTINUE READING
