Chemical biology of abscisic acid.


PMID 21461661

Abstract

Chemical biology is a discipline that utilizes chemicals to elucidate biological mechanisms and physiological functions. Various abscisic acid (ABA) derivatives have revealed the structural requirement for the perception by ABA receptors while biotin or caged derivatives of ABA have disclosed the localization of several ABA-binding proteins. Recently, selective ABA agonist has been used to identify ABA receptors. Furthermore, ABA biosynthesis and catabolic inhibitors have contributed to the identification of new ABA functions in plant growth and development. The physiological function of ABA in non-plant organisms has gradually been revealed. In this review, we discuss the development of small bioactive chemicals and their significance in ABA research.
