- ... Succinate semialdehyde (SSA) is a mitochondrially generated intermediate in the metabolism of γ-aminobutyrate (GABA), which accumulates in response to a variety of biotic and abiotic stresses. SSA can be reduced to γ-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) in plants exposed to various abiotic stress conditions. Recent evidence indicates that distinct cytosolic and plastidial glyoxylate reductase isoforms from Arabi ...
