Fine tuning of reactive oxygen species homeostasis regulates primed immune responses in Arabidopsis.
Selected stimuli can prime the plant immune system for a faster and stronger defense reaction to pathogen attack. Pretreatment of Arabidopsis with the chemical agent β-aminobutyric acid (BABA)Expand

Kinetics of nitrate uptake by Citrus seedlings and inhibitory effects of salinity
Abstract Nitrate absorption by roots of both Troyer citrange (hybrid of Citrus sinensis×Poncirus trifoliata ) and Cleopatra mandarin ( C. reshni ) seedlings was studied. The ion depletion in theExpand

Ammonium transport and CitAMT1 expression are regulated by light and sucrose in Citrus plants.
Here the isolation and characterization of CitAMT1 cDNA from citrange Troyer (Citrus sinensis L. OsbeckxPoncirus trifoliata Blanco) is reported, suggesting that this belongs to the AMT gene family,Expand

Targeting novel chemical and constitutive primed metabolites against Plectosphaerella cucumerina.
Priming is a physiological state for protection of plants against a broad range of pathogens, and is achieved through stimulation of the plant immune system. Various stimuli, such as beneficialExpand

Disruption of the ammonium transporter AMT1.1 alters basal defenses generating resistance against Pseudomonas syringae and Plectosphaerella cucumerina
Disruption of the high-affinity nitrate transporter NRT2.1 activates the priming defense against Pseudomonas syringae, resulting in enhanced resistance. In this study, it is demonstrated that theExpand

Ammonium transport and CitAMT1 expression are regulated by N in Citrus plants
Citrus seedlings (Citrus sinensis L. Osbeck × Poncirus trifoliata Blanco) were used to describe the effects of different N treatments on the NH4+ influx mediated by high- and low-affinity transportExpand

The Nitrogen Availability Interferes with Mycorrhiza-Induced Resistance against Botrytis cinerea in Tomato
Mycorrhizal plants are generally quite efficient in coping with environmental challenges. It has been shown that the symbiosis with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) can confer resistance againstExpand

Mycorrhizal tomato plants fine tunes the growth-defence balance upon N depleted root environments.
In low nutritive environments, the uptake of N by arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi may confer competitive advantages for the host. The present study aims to understand how mycorrhizal tomato plantsExpand

A Tolerant Behavior in Salt-Sensitive Tomato Plants can be Mimicked by Chemical Stimuli
Lycopersicon esculentum plants exhibit increased salt stress tolerance following treatment with adipic acid monoethylester and 1,3-diaminepropane (DAAME), known as an inducer of resistance againstExpand
