Structure and functions of the bacterial microbiota of plants.
TLDR
The plant microbiota emerges as a fundamental trait that includes mutualism enabled through diverse biochemical mechanisms, as revealed by studies on plant growth- Promoting and plant health-promoting bacteria. Expand
Quantitative divergence of the bacterial root microbiota in Arabidopsis thaliana relatives
TLDR
It is shown that differences in root microbiota profiles between these hosts are largely quantitative and that host phylogenetic distance alone cannot explain the observed microbiota diversification, and reveals a largely conserved and taxonomically narrow root microbiota, which comprises stable community members belonging to the Actinomycetales, Burkholderiales, and Flavobacteriales.

Large Expression Differences in Genes for Iron and Zinc Homeostasis, Stress Response, and Lignin Biosynthesis Distinguish Roots of Arabidopsis thaliana and the Related Metal Hyperaccumulator Thlaspi
The micronutrient zinc has an essential role in physiological and metabolic processes in plants as a cofactor or structural element in 300 catalytic and noncatalytic proteins, but it is very toxicExpand
Tryptophan-Derived Metabolites Are Required for Antifungal Defense in the Arabidopsis mlo2 Mutant1[C][W][OA]
TLDR
The data strengthen the notion that powdery mildew resistance of mlo2 genotypes is based on the same defense execution machinery as innate antifungal immune responses that restrict the invasion of nonadapted fungal pathogens. Expand
Mosaic genome structure of the barley powdery mildew pathogen and conservation of transcriptional programs in divergent hosts
TLDR
Genome sequencing of Bgh isolates revealed an isolate-specific mosaic of monomorphic and polymorphic DNA blocks, suggesting a mechanism that provides a large standing genetic variation in virulence polymorphisms and might be generated and maintained by rare outbreeding and frequent clonal reproduction. Expand
Convergent targeting of a common host protein-network by pathogen effectors from three kingdoms of life.
TLDR
A systematic protein-protein interaction network of virulence effectors from the ascomycete pathogen Golovinomyces orontii and Arabidopsis thaliana host proteins is generated and suggests the existence of a molecular host-pathogen interface that is conserved acrossArabidopsis accessions, while evolutionary adaptation occurs in the immediate network neighborhood of effector targets. Expand
Expression differences for genes involved in lignin, glutathione and sulphate metabolism in response to cadmium in Arabidopsis thaliana and the related Zn/Cd-hyperaccumulator Thlaspi caerulescens.
TLDR
The Arabidopsis myb72 knockout mutant was more sensitive to excess Zn or iron (Fe) deficiency than wild type, whileArabidopsis transformants overexpressing bHLH100 showed increased tolerance to high Zn and nickel (Ni) compared to wild-type plants, confirming their role in metal homeostasis in Arabicidopsis. Expand
Conservation of NLR-triggered immunity across plant lineages
TLDR
It is found that MLA1-triggered immunity was fully retained in mutant plants that are simultaneously depleted of ethylene, jasmonic acid, and salicylic acid signaling, which points to the existence of an evolutionarily conserved and phytohormone-independent MLA 1-mediated resistance mechanism. Expand
Involvement of the TGF-β and β-Catenin Pathways in Pelvic Lymph Node Metastasis in Early-Stage Cervical Cancer
TLDR
Pathway analysis of the microarray expression profile suggested that the TGF-β and p120-associated noncanonical β-catenin pathways are important in pelvic lymph node metastasis in early-stage cervical cancer. Expand
Salicylic acid antagonism of EDS1-driven cell death is important for immune and oxidative stress responses in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
The data strengthen the idea that EDS1 responds to the status of O(2)(*-) or O( 2)(*-)-generated molecules to coordinate cell death and defense outputs to enable the plant to respond flexibly to different biotic and abiotic stresses in the environment. Expand
