Salicylic acid (SA) has a central role in defense against pathogen attack. In addition, its role in such diverse processes as germination, flowering, senescence, and thermotolerance acquisition has been documented. However, little is known about the early signaling events triggered by SA. Using Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) suspension cells as a model,(More)
Resistance to infection in plants can be induced by treatment with various chemicals. One such compound is β-aminobutyric acid (BABA). Its positive effect on disease resistance has been noted in several pathosystems. Here we demonstrate that treatment with BABA protects Brassica napus plants from infection by the fungal pathogen Leptosphaeria maculans.(More)
with the design of the microarray experiments and Radek Zíka (Institute of Molecular Genetics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, Czech Republic) for help with the promoter analysis evaluation. We are grateful to Dr. Plant Science Center, Sweden) for careful reading of the manuscript. 4 Abstract (223 words): Salicylic acid (SA) plays a central role(More)
Phosphoglycerolipids are essential structural constituents of membranes and some also have important cell signalling roles. In this review, we focus on phosphoglycerolipids that are mediators in hormone signal transduction in plants. We first describe the structures of the main signalling phosphoglycerolipids and the metabolic pathways that generate them,(More)
Phytohormone salicylic acid (SA) is a crucial component of plant-induced defense against biotrophic pathogens. Although the key players of the SA pathway are known, there are still gaps in the understanding of the molecular mechanism and the regulation of particular steps. In our previous research, we showed in Arabidopsis suspension cells that n-butanol,(More)
The use of light emitting diodes (LEDs) brings several key advantages over existing illumination technologies for indoor plant cultivation. Among these are that LEDs have predicted lifetimes from 50–100.000 hours without significant drops in efficiency and energy consumption is much lower compared to traditional fluorescent tubes. Recent advances allow LEDs(More)
Phospholipase D (PLD) and its product phosphatidic acid are now considered to be one of the key elements of numerous physiological processes in plants including the salicylic acid signalling pathway. The presented study investigates the transcriptional regulation of Brassica napus PLDs following treatments with defense-related stimuli. We cloned eight B.(More)
