BdASR4 expression was up-regulated during abiotic stress and hormone treatments. Plants over-expressing BdASR4 improved drought tolerant. BdASR4 may regulate antioxidant activities and transcript levels of stress-related and abscisic acid-responsive genes. Abiotic stress conditions negatively affect plant growth and developmental processes...
