Hormonal Regulation of Crassulacean Acid Metabolism (CAM) and Inter-Organ Stress Signal Transduction
Plants respond to damaging effects of unfavourable environmental factors by dramatic changes in cell metabolism. The synthesis of a set of new macromolecules is involved in long-term adaptations to extreme conditions. De novo formation of some new enzymes in response to stress allows plants to maintain homeostasis and fulfill their ontogenetic cycle in environments which are deleterious for life.
