Plants are among the most versatile higher eukaryotes in accommodating environmental copper availability to largely variable demands. In particular, copper deficiency in soils is a threat for plant survival since it mostly affects reproductive structures. One of the strategies that plant cells use to overcome this situation is to increase copper levels by expressing high-affinity copper transporters delivering the metal to the cytosol. In this minireview, we discuss recent advances in the… CONTINUE READING
