Analysis of tomato Responses to Sulfur Limitation

Sulfur is an important component of molecules and therefore an essential element for plants. Sulfate deficiency, the main source of sulfur in soils, negatively influences plant growth and crop yield.

The effect of sulfate deficiency in plants has been well characterized at the physiological, transcriptomic and metabolomic levels in model plants such as Arabidopsis thaliana. However, there is still a lack understanding of the molecular mechanisms and regulatory networks that underlie sulfate deficiency in most of plants and crops. In this work we analyze the impact of sulfate starvation on the tomato transcriptome to identify regulatory networks and key regulatory factors in the different organs.
