Role of PIMT in plant: A perspective towards abiotic stress

Author(s):

Pragati Mardi, Akanksha Gupta and Anshuman Kumar

Abstract:

The yield loss due to abiotic stress is an agonizing issue in agriculture mutilating its protein makeup, function and structure which can impact its survivability in stressful circumstances by formation of abnormal L-isoaspartyl residues through spontaneous covalent modification. To overcome this serious problem PIMT, a protein repairing enzyme, transforms abnormal L-isoaspartyl residues to normal L-aspartyl residues and re-establishes the protein’s innate structure and function. PIMT has a key role in preserving seed vigor and viability for prolong periods of time. PIMT role has also been reported in vegetative organs in few plant species.
