It has been proposed that salicylic acid acts as an endogenous signal responsible for inducing systemic acquired resistance in plants. The contribution of salicylic acid to systemic acquired resistance was investigated in transgenic tobacco plants harboring a bacterial gene encoding salicylate hydroxylase, which converts salicylic acid to catechol.(More)
Transgenic tobacco and Arabidopsis thaliana expressing the bacterial enzyme salicylate hydroxylase cannot accumulate salicylic acid (SA). This defect not only makes the plants unable to induce systemic acquired resistance, but also leads to increased susceptibility to viral, fungal, and bacterial pathogens. The enhanced susceptibility extends even to(More)
We define the Segre numbers of an ideal as a generalization of the mul-tiplicity of an ideal of finite colength. We prove generalizations of various theorems involving the multiplicity of an ideal such as a principle of specialization of integral dependence, the Rees-Böger theorem, and the formula for the multiplicity of the product of two ideals. These(More)
We describe some basic facts about the weak subintegral closure of ideals in both the algebraic and complex-analytic settings. We focus on the analogy between results on the integral closure of ideals and modules and the weak subintegral closure of an ideal. We start by giving a geometric interpretation of the Reid-Roberts-Singh criterion for when an(More)
