Priming: getting ready for battle.
TLDR
The current knowledge of priming in various induced-resistance phenomena in plants is summarized. Expand
Calcium in plant defence-signalling pathways.
TLDR
This work focuses on calcium signalling in plant defence responses, particularly on the generation of the calcium signal and downstream calcium-dependent events participating in the establishment of defence responses with special reference to calcium-binding proteins. Expand
New insights into nitric oxide signaling in plants.
TLDR
This review summarizes the basic concepts of NO signaling in animals and discusses new insights into NO enzymatic sources and molecular signaling in plants. Expand
Analysis and Effects of Cytosolic Free Calcium Increases in Response to Elicitors in Nicotiana plumbaginifolia Cells Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at
TLDR
Cell suspensions obtained from Nicotiana plumbaginifolia plants stably expressing the apoaequorin gene were used to analyze changes in cytosolic free calcium concentrations, demonstrating that [Ca2+]cyt increase is mediated by cryptogein–receptor interaction. Expand
Nitric Oxide Contributes to Cadmium Toxicity in Arabidopsis by Promoting Cadmium Accumulation in Roots and by Up-Regulating Genes Related to Iron Uptake1[W]
TLDR
The synthesis and the role of NO are investigated and it is demonstrated that Cd2+ induces NO synthesis in roots and leaves of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) seedlings and that NO is responsible for C d2+-induced inhibition of root Ca2+ accumulation. Expand
Nitric oxide: comparative synthesis and signaling in animal and plant cells.
TLDR
These findings complement an emerging body of evidence indicating that many signal transduction pathways are shared between plants and animals and help clarify the role of nitric oxide in plants. Expand
Early signaling events induced by elicitors of plant defenses.
TLDR
Early signaling events that happen after elicitor perception are reviewed, including reversible protein phosphorylations, changes in the activities of plasma membrane proteins, variations in free calcium concentrations in cytosol and nucleus, and production of nitric oxide and active oxygen species. Expand
Laminarin elicits defense responses in grapevine and induces protection against Botrytis cinerea and Plasmopara viticola.
TLDR
The data describing a large set of defense reactions in grapevine indicate that the activation of defense responses using elicitors could be a valuable strategy to protect plants against pathogens. Expand
Analysis of Nitric Oxide Signaling Functions in Tobacco Cells Challenged by the Elicitor Cryptogein1
TLDR
The data indicate that NO is intimately involved in the signal transduction processes leading to cryptogein-induced defense responses, and the signaling events that mediate NO production are investigated. Expand
Early Events Induced by the Elicitor Cryptogein in Tobacco Cells: Involvement of a Plasma Membrane NADPH Oxidase and Activation of Glycolysis and the Pentose Phosphate Pathway.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cryptogein also induces calcium-dependent plasma membrane depolarization, chloride efflux, cytoplasm acidification, and NADPH oxidation without changes in NAD+ and ATP levels, indicating that the elicitor-activated redox system, responsible for active oxygen species production, uses NADPH in vivo.
