Salt tolerance mechanisms in plants advanced by the discovery of a cell surface receptor [Registered]

Salinity has deleterious effects on plant health and limits crop yields, because salt inhibits water uptake and can be toxic for plants. An international team of researchers have provided first experimental evidence and molecular mechanisms showing how FERONIA, a plasma-membrane-localized receptor kinase, is essential for the cellular responses that ensure survival under high salinity.…
