A mathematical model of the interaction of abscisic acid, ethylene and methyl jasmonate on stomatal closure in plants

PLOS One. Plant stomatal opening is controlled by phytohormones, among other factors. This article models the phytohormone signaling response in guard cells using ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Sixteen components in this system were analyzed by constructing 16 different models and determining the ability of these models to recover previous findings. The resulting best model showed the effects of crosstalk between the phytohormones on stomatal closure. PLOS One 10.1371/journal.pone.0171065
