Plant nitrite reductase (NiR) catalyzes the reduction of nitrite to ammonium. We examined if NiR activity is regulated by sumoylation, and found NiR was not sumoylated by E3 small ubiquitin-related modifier ligase AtSIZ1. However, its transcript level decreased in the siz1-2 mutant, indicating that AtSIZ1 does not directly control NiR activity.
