NAC (NAM, ATAF1/2, and CUC2) transcription factors play vital roles in response to multiple abiotic stresses. Our previous study has demonstrated that ZmNAC84, a maize NAC transcription factor, enhanced the drought tolerance by increasing abscisic acid (ABA)-induced antioxidant enzyme activities of APX and SOD, and Ser-113, a key phosphorylation site, of ZmNAC84 played an important role in this process. However, the target gene of ZmNAC84 in this process is still unknown. Read More
