(c) Representative GUS staining of mock (upper panel) and PAC treated (decrease panel) seeds harbouring ABI5:GUS or its mutated version in several genetic backgrounds. The seeds have been grown on 1/2 MS either containing five mM PAC or mock for 48 HAS. Scale bar, 0.five mm.

Here, our observations assistance a direct regulation of RGL2 on ABI5. To ascertain whether such regulation is ABA dependent or not, we examined the expressionof ABI5 in ABA synthesis defective mutants aba1-5 and aba2-1. Interestingly, the ABI5 expression was nonetheless i.
