Shining A New Light on The Importance of a Critical Photosynthesis Pathway in Plants

The mystery of the unclear biological significance of the ferredoxin/thioredoxin pathway in plants has finally been solved by researchers from Tokyo Tech using CRISPR/Cas9. The researchers show that the pathway is important for light-dependent activation of enzymes, photosynthesis in leaves, and normal growth in plants.
