Peptidases are known to play key roles in multiple biological processes in all living organisms. In higher plants, the vast majority of putative aminopeptidases remain uncharacterized. In this study, we performed functional and expression analyses of the Arabidopsis LAP2 through cDNA cloning, isolation of T-DNA insertional mutants, characterization of the enzymatic activity, characterization of gene expression and transcriptomics and metabolomics analyses of the mutants. Loss of function of… CONTINUE READING
