Stomata play an important role in plant innate immunity by limiting pathogen entry into leaves but molecular mechanisms regulating stomatal closure upon pathogen perception are not well understood. Here we show that the Arabidopsis thaliana L-type lectin receptor kinase-V.5 (LecRK-V.5) negatively regulates stomatal immunity. Loss of LecRK-V.5 function(More)
Mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR) plays a range of crucial roles in cell survival, growth, proliferation, metabolism, and morphology. However, mTOR forms two distinct complexes, mTOR complex 1 and mTOR complex 2 (mTORC1 and mTORC2), via association with a series of different components; this allows the complexes to execute their wide range of functions.(More)
Wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) at optical carrier frequencies offers more capacity and flexibility of fiber networks and upgrades conventional point-to-point fiber-optic transmission links to multiuser networks for the demand of high-speed network systems. The microring resonator, which has been seen in action in many photonic devices, is ideal for(More)
