- ... Ascorbate (AsA) is an antioxidant that can scavenge the reactive oxygen species (ROS) produced when plants encounter stressful conditions. Here, it was revealed by a yeast one‐hybrid assay that a tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) HD‐Zip I family transcription factor, SlHZ24, binds to the promoter of an AsA biosynthetic gene encoding GDP‐d‐mannose pyrophosphorylase 3 (SlGMP3). Both the transient expres ...
