Nitrogen is a key mineral nutrient playing a crucial role in plant growth and development. Understanding the mechanisms of nitrate uptake from the soil and distribution through the plant in response to nitrogen starvation is an important step on the way to improve nitrogen uptake and utilization efficiency for better growth and productivity of plants, and to prevent negative effects of nitrogen fertilizers on the environment and human health. In this study, we show that Arabidopsis NITRATE… CONTINUE READING
