Coupling of responses
Fig. 1.6.17 Model of the interaction between NaCI and ABA in the induction of Em expression in suspension culture cells of rice. Salt can effect induction of the LEA gene Em via ABA (route 1) or directly, i.e. independently of ABA (route 2). Both routes converge on a common intermediate where they interact and lead to enhanced expression of the mRNA. (Bostock and Quatrano 1992)
