Next week I will be giving a talk on the many roles of Abscisic
Acid on plant growth and development. One of the central themes in which
ABA is associated with is osmotic stress. In the review acticles and the
texts I have read mention that proline is an important osmoprotectant, but
I can't find out why. Can anyone help me out with a simple explanation??
I must admit I won't be covering this in my talk, it is more for personal
interest. Any input would greatly be appreciated.
