Abscisic acid (ABA) mediates seed maturation and adaptive responses to environmental stress. In Arabidopsis, the ABA-INSENSITIVE1 (ABI1) protein phosphatase 2C is required for proper ABA responsiveness both in seeds and in vegetative tissues. To determine whether the lack of recessive alleles at the corresponding locus could be explained by the existence of redundant genes, we initiated a search for ABI1 homologs. One such homolog turned out to be the ABI2 locus, whose abi2-1 mutation was… CONTINUE READING
