Regulated AtHKT1 gene expression by a distal enhancer element and DNA methylation in the promoter plays an important role in salt tolerance.

Abstract

Through sos3 (salt overly sensitive 3) suppressor screening, two allelic suppressor mutants that are weak alleles of the strong sos3 suppressor sos3hkt1-1 were recovered. Molecular characterization identified T-DNA insertions in the distal promoter region of the Arabidopsis thaliana HKT1 (AtHKT1, At4g10310) in these two weak sos3 suppressors, which results… (More)
