Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: How plants in the cabbage family look inward when sulfur is scarce

(Kyushu University) Studying genetically modified model plants from the cabbage family, researchers at Kyushu University found that disrupting the production of two enzymes in thale cress plants growing in sulfur-deficient environments further stunts growth by reducing their ability to breakdown sulfur-containing glucosinolates. This new insight could one day help shed light on designing strategies for improving the content of health-beneficial glucosinolates in related crops and promoting effective sulfur utilization in modern agriculture.
