Innate immunity represents the first line of inducible defence against microbial infection in plants and animals. In both kingdoms, recognition of pathogen- or microbe-associated molecular patterns… Continue Reading
Several calcium-independent protein kinases were activated by hyperosmotic and saline stresses in Arabidopsis cell suspension. Similar activation profiles were also observed in seedlings exposed to… Continue Reading
Ca(2+) has long been recognized as a conserved second messenger and principal mediator in plant immune and stress responses. How Ca(2+) signals are sensed and relayed into diverse primary and global… Continue Reading
In plants and animals, innate immunity is triggered through pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) in response to microbe-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs) to provide the first line of inducible… Continue Reading
To survive and develop normally, plants must constantly perceive changes in their environment and respond properly through a variety of molecular mechanisms. What are the processes by which plant… Continue Reading
Nutrient signalling integrates and coordinates gene expression, metabolism and growth. However, its primary molecular mechanisms remain incompletely understood in plants and animals. Here we report… Continue Reading
Abscisic acid (ABA) is a major phytohormone involved in important stress-related and developmental plant processes. Recent phosphoproteomic analyses revealed a large set of ABA-triggered… Continue Reading
Three of the protein kinases activated by hypoosmotic stress in Arabidopsis thaliana cell suspensions were previously characterized [FEBS, 2002, 527, 43-50] as mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinases… Continue Reading
In Arabidopsis the stomatal defense response, a feature of the innate immunity in plants, involves oxylipin-mediated mechanisms that are independent of the phytohormone abscisic acid.
CDPKs (calcium-dependent protein kinases), which contain both calmodulin-like calcium binding and serine/threonine protein kinase domains, are only present in plants and some protozoans. Upon… Continue Reading
