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 hyperosmotic stress. One of them was identified to AtMPK6 but the others remained to be identified. They were assumed to belong to the SNF1 (sucrose(More)
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 (PAMPs or MAMPs, respectively), such as flagellin, initiates convergent signalling pathways involving mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades and global(More)
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 signaling events is still largely unknown. Comprehensive analyses of the plant-specific multigene family of Ca(2+)-dependent protein kinases (CDPKs) are(More)
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 defense. Plant receptor protein kinases (RPKs) represent the main plasma membrane PRRs perceiving diverse MAMPs. RPKs also recognize secondary danger-inducible(More)
Plant stomata function in innate immunity against bacterial invasion and abscisic acid (ABA) has been suggested to regulate this process. Using genetic, biochemical, and pharmacological approaches, we demonstrate that (i) the Arabidopsis thaliana nine-specific-lipoxygenase encoding gene, LOX1, which is expressed in guard cells, is required to trigger(More)
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 and two of them corresponded to Arabidopsis mitogen-activated protein kinase 6 (MPK6) (44 kDa) and MPK3 (39 kDa). The third MAP kinase was identified here to(More)
In Arabidopsis cell suspension, hyperosmotic stresses (mannitol and NaCl) were previously shown to activate nine sucrose non-fermenting 1 related protein kinases 2 (SnRK2s) whereas only five of them were also activated by abscisic acid (ABA) treatment. Here, the possible activation by phosphorylation/dephosphorylation of each kinase was investigated by(More)
Five Ca(2+)-independent protein kinases were rapidly activated by hypoosmotic stress, moderate or high hyperosmolarity induced by several osmolytes, sucrose, mannitol or NaCl. Three of these kinases, transiently activated by hypoosmolarity, recognised by anti-phosphorylated mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase antibodies, sensitive to a MAP kinase(More)
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 activation by a stimulus, they transduce the signal through phosphorylation cascades to induce downstream responses, including transcriptional regulation. To(More)
