Abstract:
This paper summarizes the ongoing plant biology research toward the understanding of phosphate (P) stress in legumes such as white lupin (Lupinus albus), common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris), barrel medic (Medicago truncatula), and soyabean (Glycine max). Additional studies using model plant systems such as Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) and rice (Oryza sativa) have also provided valuable genomic and genetic evidence in understanding plant responses and adaptations to P limitations. QTL associated with root architecture for P stress tolerance and adaptation, P-stress-induced ESTs, P-stress-responsive transcription factors, micro-RNAs in legumes, modulation the expression of P stress-responsive genes by sugars, phytohormones and P-stress adaptation, and arbuscular mycorrhizal symbioses, are discussed.
