Phospholipid signaling has been recently implicated in diverse cellular processes in higher plants. We identified a cDNA encoding the phospholipase A1 homolog (CaPLA1) from 5-day-old early roots of hot pepper. The deduced amino acid sequence showed that the lipase-specific catalytic triad is well conserved in CaPLA1. In vitro lipase assays and site-directed(More)
We report a role for the Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) RESURRECTION1 (RST1) gene in plant defense. The rst1 mutant exhibits enhanced susceptibility to the biotrophic fungal pathogen Erysiphe cichoracearum but enhanced resistance to the necrotrophic fungal pathogens Botrytis cinerea and Alternaria brassicicola. RST1 encodes a novel protein that(More)
Most of the proline-rich cell wall glycoprotein genes isolated from higher plants are preferentially expressed in the transmitting tissues of the flower organ. In conducting expressed sequence tag (EST) analysis, which was prepared from 5-day-old early roots of hot pepper (Capsicum annuum L. cv. Pukang), we identified a cDNA clone, pCaPRP1, encoding a(More)
The hypersensitive reaction (HR) in plants is typified by a rapid and localized cell death at the site of pathogen infection. To understand better the molecular and cellular defence mechanism controlling HR, hot pepper leaves (Capsicum annuum cv. Pukang) were inoculated with the soybean pustule pathogen Xanthomonas campestris pv. glycine 8ra. By using the(More)
The plant hormone ethylene has been shown to play an important role in root hair development in Arabidopsis. With the aid of proteomic analysis, we identified three distinct glutathione S-transferase (GST) isoforms, AtGSTF2, AtGSTF8, and AtGSTU19, expressed early in root epidermal establishment in Arabidopsis seedlings. The AtGSTF2 protein was specifically(More)
