MAIN CONCLUSION: An SPL-type transcription factor, LeSPL-CNR, is negatively involved in NO production by modulating SlNR expression and nitrate reductase activity, which contributes to Cd tolerance. Cadmium (Cd) is a highly toxic pollutant. Identifying factors affecting Cd accumulation in plants is a prerequisite for minimizing dietary uptake of Cd from crops grown with contaminated soil. Here, we ...
