Making Sure Hungry Plants Get Fed: The Dual-Targeted Purple Acid Phosphatase Isozyme AtPAP26 is Essential for Efficient Acclimation of Arabidopsis Thaliana to Nutritional Phosphate Deprivation
Acid phosphatases (APases; E.C. 220.127.116.11) catalyze the hydrolysis of phosphate (Pi) from Pi monoesters and anhydrides within the acidic pH range. Induction of intracellular and secreted purple acid phosphatases (PAPs) is a ...
