Abstract in another language

Author SummaryIron deficiency is the most common human nutritional disorder, afflicting more than three billion people worldwide. Most of these people rely on plants for their dietary iron. Iron is also one of the three nutrients that most commonly limit plant growth. Despite progress in tracing how Fe moves throughout the plant, we still do not fully understand how plants sense and respond to Fe availability. Here, we report on two apparently redundant MYB transcription factors that are acting to control one gene that has a major impact on the ability of plants to grow in alkaline soil where iron availability is greatly restricted. In the absence of these transcription factors, plants are unable to survive on this soil. As 1/3 of the world's soils are alkaline, understanding how plants cope may enable the growth of crops on soils currently not suitable for agricultural production. These two transcription factors also extend the iron deficiency network and this work provides insight into the tight control plants exert over iron uptake and distribution.
