Abstract

Until recently the pathway by which plants reduce activated sulfate to sulfite was unresolved. Recent findings on two enzymes termed 5'-adenylylsulfate (APS) sulfotransferase and APS reductase have provided new information on this topic. On the basis of their similarities it is now proposed that these proteins are the same enzyme. These discoveries confirm that the sulfate assimilation pathway in plants differs from that in other sulfate assimilating organisms.
