Effect of ophiobolin a on stomatal movement: Role of calmodulin

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

15 Scopus citations


Ophiobolin A enhanced stomatal opening of Commelina communis and partially abolished the inhibitory effect of calcium chloride. The same results were obtained by the phenothiazine drug, chloropromazine. The possibility of calmodulin involvement in stomatal response to both materials is discussed.
