DOG1 was demonstrated to increase the expressions of LEA and HSP, via ABI5/ABI3, and may accelerate the accumulation of N‐rich compounds, which promote the dormancy and storability of seeds (Dekkers et al. Abscisic acid is involved in many phases of embryo development during alternation of generations (sporophyte to gametophyte to sporophyte). Functionally, ABA transporters have been increasingly shown to be involved in transpiration, root morphology, seed germination and other processes important to stress. Each hormone differs in its effects. (2005) Differential effects of abscisic acid on desiccation tolerance and carbohydrates in three species of liverworts. Arguments for the function of this gene were obtained from lines homozygous recessive for this locus only, obtained by selection from the F2 progeny of revertant X wild-type crosses. Other studies have confirmed that ABA is synthesized in leaves and then transported to other organs (Zhang et al. 2002; Finch‐Savage and Leubner‐Metzger 2006). 2015). Stomatal movement is also triggered by high concentrations of CO2 and this is impaired in ost1 mutants but not in ABA biosynthesis mutants such as nced3/nced5 and aba2‐1 and in the ABA signaling mutant pyl112458. The Bryologist 90, 393–400. 2015). Ergün N, Abscisic acid is the plant hormone, which is responsible for dormancy of seeds and inhibition of seeds. 249–256. Moreover, CPK13 also inactivates KAT1 and KAT2, two K+ influx channels, and affects stomatal behavior through specific phosphorylation events (Ronzier et al. 2018; Nguyen et al. (1991) High performance thin layer chromatographic and high performance liquid chromatographic determination of abscisic acid produced by cyanobacteria. 2018). Manickavelu A, 2013; Zhao et al. E. Nambara, in Encyclopedia of Applied Plant Sciences (Second Edition), 2017 Abstract. 2001; Cheng et al. 2014; Waadt et al. Altogether, members of LAFL network together with other factors have crucial roles in the orchestration of the accumulation of storage products during the maturation of seeds. 1994; Soderman et al. The Addicott lab found that abscisin II also promotes leaf abscission in cotton seedlings and inhibits indoleacetic acid‐induced growth of Avena coleoptiles. Abscisic acid also functions in the process of post‐germination growth (PGG) arrest. NF‐YC, together with RGL2, promotes ABI5 expression to enhance ABA‐mediated repression of seed germination (Liu et al. How ABA functions in stem cell maintenance and differentiation is a major underappreciated aspect of stress adaptation (Han et al. Abscisic acid (ABA) is an important phytohormone regulating plant growth, development, and stress responses. Seed dormancy is a natural phenomenon in plants. 2005). 2007). 2009; Santiago et al. 2014; Nemoto et al. 2015; Stevenson et al. Clade A PP2Cs are core negative regulators of ABA signaling, and have important functions in suppressing stress signaling and allowing the appropriate degree of plant growth suppression, especially under unstressed or mild stress conditions (Fujii et al. 2018; Cheng et al. 2014; Xing et al. S), 147–148. 2018; Zhao et al. Hydrobiologia 267, 163–168. 2015). Abscisic acid is a plant hormone involved in many developmental plant processes, such as dormancy and environmental stress response. Journal of Experimental Botany 43, 1535–1547. ABI3 and ABI4 are two other important transcription factors that regulate ABA responses. 2014). Collectively, all these processes fine‐tunes the level of ABA during different developmental stages and in response to various environmental changes. Emergence of PYL receptors apparently occured before terrestrial occupation. 2008). 2005). After the suspension of cell division during embryogenesis, plant seeds begin to accumulate storage components and begin to desiccate. These kinases appear to be critical for the activation of SnRK2s and subsequent responses to ABA and abiotic stresses in Arabidopsis and Physcomitrella patens (Huang et al. Simek M, Lukesova A We love to hear from you! | Crossref | GoogleScholarGoogle Scholar | However, ABA biosynthesis and signaling mutants aba1 and abi3 display normal embryo growth, indicating that FUS3, LEC1, and LEC2 control embryo growth arrest independent of ABA signaling (Raz et al. Kobayashi M, It is well known that ABA‐bound PYLs interact with clade A PP2Cs, which in turn release SnRK2.2/3/6 from inhibition. II. Abiotic stresses and ABA induce the activation of several protein kinases including SnRK2s, CPK3, SOS2/CIPK24/SnRK3.11, and CIPK23 in Arabidopsis and MdCIPK22 in apple, which affects phosphorylation changes of multiple downstream regulators (Guo et al. Yokoya NS, (1973) Hydrophilic growth inhibitors from Laminaria digitata and Ascophyllum nodosum. Universität Hamburg, Germany. 2009). The ABA activated SnRK2.6/Open Stomata1 (OST1) is a key regulator of stomatal closure (Li et al. New Phytologist 72, 403–410. 1. The phytohormone abscisic acid (ABA) plays a crucial role in adaptive responses to environmental stresses, such as drought and high salinity, as well as in plant development, such as seed maturation and dormancy. The opposing roles of ABA and GA in seed dormancy and germination result in a balanced control mechanism. Ganesh SK, 2016). This is similar to the mutants of TORC, including tor and raptor1b, triple mutants of AELs, and mutants of members of ESCRT‐I Component, such as vps23a, alix‐1, and fyve (Yu et al. In the absence of ABA, clade A PP2Cs interact with and inhibit SnRK2s. The effect of abscisic acid on leaf anatomy. Abscisic acid is a key regulator in this process and it is noteworthy that only the embryo but not any maternal tissues produces ABA. – concentrations on the abscisic acid content of Dunaliella sp. Topcuoglu SF, Yildiz A However, AtABCG22 may not transport ABA directly, although it is possibly involved in ABA efflux (Kuromori et al. Regulations of core abscisic acid (ABA) signaling components. Journal of Plant Physiology 141, 33–39. The gene encoding AtABCG22 is similar in sequence to AtABCG25. 2013). These processes all take place in plastids, and in the cytoplasm, a short‐chain alcohol dehydrogenase encoded by AtABA2/AtGIN1 then converts xanthoxin into abscisic aldehyde which is eventually oxidized to ABA by AtABA3, which is an abscisic aldehyde oxidase (AAO3) (Bittner et al. Time ordered developmental processes consist of embryogenesis, storage product accumulation, desiccation tolerance, dormancy, germination, and post‐germination growth arrest, which rely deeply on transcriptional regulations. 2008; To et al. 2010, 2014; Gonzalez‐Guzman et al. However, many details of ABFs regulation of water stress response remain unclear (Yoshida et al. 2018b). Tietz A, Kasprik W However, other study has shown that the effects of CO2 on stomatal closure are dependent on ABA signaling, and therefore, the relationship between CO2 and ABA needs further clarification (Chater et al. 2013). 1984; Giraudat et al.

Cowan AK, (Chlorophyta). Plant Growth Regulation 24, 119–125. The root‐derived CLAVATA3/EMBRYO‐SURROUNDING REGION‐RELATED 25 (CLE25) peptide, perceived by BARELY ANY MERISTEM (BAM) receptors, promotes ABA biosynthesis in leaves, in response to dehydration by upregulating NCED3 expression (Takahashi et al. SnRK2s may then be activated by autophosphorylation and/or transphosphorylation by several other kinases, such as the Raf‐like MAKKKs, RAF10, and ARK (for ABA and abiotic stress‐responsive Raf‐like kinases) (Figure 2). 2013). Plant & Cell Physiology 39, 968–977. 2017). 2018). One pathway requires neoxanthin synthase (NSY) encoded by the Arabidopsis ABA4 gene and an unknown isomerase, which convert all‐trans‐violaxanthin to 9′‐cis‐neoxanthin through all‐trans‐neoxanthin; in another possible pathway an unknown isomerase catalyzes all‐trans‐violaxanthin to 9′‐cis‐violaxanthin directly (North et al. (2007) Endophytic bacteria in sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.): isolation, characterization, and production of jasmonates and abscisic acid in culture medium. 2017; Su et al.

Stirk W, Abscisic acid can be sprayed on tree crops to regulate fruit drops the end of the season. The constructive comments of Professor Hermann Heilmeier (Technical University, Freiberg, Germany) and the help of Dr Jiang Fan (Beijing Normal University, Beijing) with the figures are gratefully acknowledged. The discovery of PYL/PP2C co‐receptors has led to a substantial effort to unravel the complex signaling system that controls plant responses to ABA. PYLs are phosphorylated by multiple protein kinases including TOR, Arabidopsis Early flowering 1 (EL1)‐like casein kinase (AEL), C‐terminally encoded peptide receptor 2 (CEPR2), and cytosolic ABA receptor kinase 1 (CARK1). Catabolism of ABA occurs by the conversion from ABA to phaseic acid (PA) which is catalyzed by a cytochrome P450 monooxygenase (P450) encoded by CYP707As (Kushiro et al. Molecular Plant Pathology 9, 661–673. (2008) Long-distance signalling of abscisic acid (ABA): the factors regulating the intensity of the ABA signal. 2012; Li et al. Yamane H, Chapman DJ (2005) Abscisic acid regulation of heterophylly in Marsilea quadrifolia L.: effects of R-(–) an S-(+) isomers. Expression of both RGL2 and ABI5 are also activated by exogenous ABA (Piskurewicz et al. Abscisic acid is found mostly near leaves, stems, and unripe fruit. Ott S, Algological Studies 71, 75–79. GoogleScholar. 1995). In Arabidopsis, SDR4‐LIKE (AtSDR4L) regulates dormancy release and germination through both GA synthesis and activities (Sugimoto et al. Abscisic acid plays critical roles in accelerating leaf senescence through transcriptional regulation (Gao et al. 1963). Abscisic Acid. This will protect the seedling until its surroundings become more favorable for further growth and development that is needed to establish a photoautotrophic system (Hwang et al.

(2004) Mitigation of osmotic and salt stresses by abscisic acid through reduction of stress derived oxidative damage in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. An important aspect of the transition to flowering and the successful production of dormant structures (seeds) crucially involves the senescence process. 2009; Miao et al. Seed scutellum-specific expression of OsGLP2-1 was increased by exogenous abscisic acid, but decreased with gibberellic acid treatment. 2018; Tena 2018; Zhao et al. Hartung W, Gimmler H 2013; Liao et al. Several aspects of the spatiotemporal regulation of ABA accumulation and signaling need further study, including: (i) long‐distance transmission of stress signals to induce ABA; (ii) ABA dynamics at the cellular, tissue or organ levels. Darwin Klages S, In contrast, under stressed conditions or ABA treatment, activities of PP2Cs can be reduced by ABA receptor PYLs and several other regulators, such as the putative leucine‐rich repeat‐RLK, RECEPTOR DEAD KINASE1 (RDK1) that can promote ABA responses by interacting with ABI1 (Kumar et al. 2019). New Phytologist 143, 495–501. Abscisic acid is the plant hormone, which is responsible for dormancy of seeds and inhibition of seeds. 2018). 1988). 1997). A ABFs, such as ABI5 and EEL, also participate in dark‐induced senescence (Sakuraba et al. Mitteilungsband. Zeitschrift für Naturforschung 47c, 701–704. 1990, 1992; Hamilton et al. 2014). Abscisic acid (ABA) is an important phytohormone regulating plant growth, development and stress responses. Jiang F, Hartung W 2012). ABA-deficient mutants from various plant species display reduced seed dormancy and wilty phenotypes, highlighting that these crucial ABA functions are conserved in … 2008). Based on genetic analysis, DOG1 and ABA are both required for normal seed dormancy (Alonso‐Blanco et al. 2008). Stomatal closure is the major process controlling the transpirational water loss of plant. Promotes bud dormancy. 2019). These functions have been extensively studied, which has been focused on the major metabolism and signaling pathways, with particular emphasis on seed dormancy and stomatal movement. 2001). Abscisic acid plays an important role in the closure of stomata by regulating guard cell ion fluxes. Plant Science Letters 37, 9–14. B 2009; Li et al. The AP2/EREBP domain protein, WRI1 also functions in multiple processes involved in the accumulation of oil and sugars in seeds.
