The non-protein amino acid beta-amino-butyric acid (BABA) protects plants against a wide range of pathogens. We have examined the effectiveness and mode of action of BABA on resistance against twoExpand

Priming: getting ready for battle.
Infection of plants by necrotizing pathogens or colonization of plant roots with certain beneficial microbes causes the induction of a unique physiological state called "priming." The primed stateExpand

Costs and benefits of priming for defense in Arabidopsis.
Induced resistance protects plants against a wide spectrum of diseases; however, it can also entail costs due to the allocation of resources or toxicity of defensive products. The cellular defenseExpand

Enhancing Arabidopsis Salt and Drought Stress Tolerance by Chemical Priming for Its Abscisic Acid Responses1
Drought and salt stress tolerance of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) plants increased following treatment with the nonprotein amino acid β-aminobutyric acid (BABA), known as an inducer ofExpand

The multifaceted role of ABA in disease resistance.
Long known only for its role in abiotic stress tolerance, recent evidence shows that abscisic acid (ABA) also has a prominent role in biotic stress. Although it acts as a negative regulator ofExpand

Differential effectiveness of salicylate-dependent and jasmonate/ethylene-dependent induced resistance in Arabidopsis.
Salicylic acid (SA), jasmonic acid (JA), and ethylene (ET) are each involved in the regulation of basal resistance against different pathogens. These three signals play important roles in inducedExpand

Callose deposition: a multifaceted plant defense response.
Callose deposition in Arabidopsis has emerged as a popular model system to quantify activity of plant immunity. However, there has been a noticeable rise in contradicting reports about the regulationExpand

Dissecting the β-Aminobutyric Acid–Induced Priming Phenomenon in Arabidopsisw⃞
Plants treated with the nonprotein amino acid β-aminobutyric acid (BABA) develop an enhanced capacity to resist biotic and abiotic stresses. This BABA-induced resistance (BABA-IR) is associated withExpand

Mycorrhiza-induced resistance: more than the sum of its parts?
Plants can develop an enhanced defensive capacity in response to infection by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF). This 'mycorrhiza-induced resistance' (MIR) provides systemic protection against aExpand
