The transcription factor MYB37 positively regulates photosynthetic inhibition and oxidative damage in Arabidopsis leaves under salt stress
Researchers from Northeast Forestry University and partners reported a
genethat can positively control photosynthetic inhibition and oxidative
damage in Arabidopsis undersalineconditions. Their findings are
published in/Frontiers in Plant Science/.
The research team overexpressed/MYB37/, a R2R3 MYB subgroup 14
transcription factor in Arabidopsis, which confers hyposensitivity
tosalt. This led to lessened salt stress symptoms of Arabidopsis under
salt stress./MYB37/also reduced the degradation of chlorophyll,
particularly the decrease of chlorophyll in Arabidopsis under salt stress.
The findings indicate that/MYB37/could lessen the degradation of
Arabidopsis proteins under salt stress, promote plant growth, and
enhance salt tolerance.
