Analyses of Root-secreted Acid Phosphatase Activity in Arabidopsis
Authors:  Liangsheng Wang and Dong Liu, date: 04/05/2017, view: 1564, Q&A: 0
Induction and secretion of acid phosphatase (APase) is a universal adaptive response of higher plants to low-phosphate stress (Tran et al., 2010). The intracellular APases are likely involved in the remobilization and recycling of phosphate ...
