    Abstract The natriuretic peptides (NP) are vertebrate hormones involved in the regulation of ion and water homeostasis in the cell. In plants, natriuretic peptides (PNP) have been identified by molecular and biochemical methods. It has been suggested that PNPs, have similar functions to the PN, since they mediate (1) ion transport through the cell, (2) the opening and closing of Na+ and K+ channels through the stimulation and synthesis of a second messenger such as cGMP, and (3) the aperture of stomata. In this study, a PNPs gene was partially identified by PCR in garlic (Allium sativum L.),… More >
