Encodes an enzyme catalizing the first step of glutathione biosynthesis.
Single mutant: cad2-1
single mutant is late flowering under LD conditions. ( No data available under SD conditions.) [Ogawa et al., 2001] Function:
Seems to play an important role in controlling the expression of resistance responses like the regulation of salicylic acid (SA) and phytoalexin (camalexin) production. Involved in resistance to fungal and bacterial pathogens. Required for the regulation of cell proliferation in root apical meristems through the GSH-dependent developmental pathway. Also participates to the detoxification process, the antioxidant response and is essential for embryo development and proper seed maturation. [Data from UniProt]
