Novel Nanosensors Help Track ABA Stress Hormones in Plants

Novel Nanosensors Help Track ABA Stress Hormones in Plants

Biologists at UC San Diego have succeeded in visualizing the movement within plants of a key hormone responsible for growth and resistance to drought. The achievement will allow researchers to conduct further studies to determine how the hormone helps plants respond to drought and other environmental stresses driven by the continuing increase in the atmosphere’s carbon dioxide, or CO2, concentration.
