The rice XA21 immune receptor kinase and the structurally related XA3 receptor confer immunity to Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo), the causal agent of bacterial leaf blight. Here we report the isolation of OsSERK2 (rice somatic embryogenesis receptor kinase 2) and demonstrate that OsSERK2 positively regulates immunity mediated by XA21 and XA3 as well as(More)
Previous studies have shown that multivesicular bodies (MVBs)/endosomes-mediated vesicular trafficking may play key roles in plant immunity and cell death. However, the molecular regulation is poorly understood in rice. Here we report the identification and characterization of a MVBs-localized AAA ATPase LRD6-6 in rice. Disruption of LRD6-6 leads to(More)
Receptor-like cytoplasmic kinases (RLCKs) belong to a large subgroup of kinases that play pivotal roles in plant development and in protecting plants from various stresses. Here, we report the isolation and characterization of rice OsRLCK102, from the OsRLCK VII subgroup. Silencing of OsRLCK102 compromised receptor kinase XA21-mediated resistance to(More)
Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) play an important role in plant communication. Rose floral scent consists of many VOCs, such as aroma alcohols, esters and terpenes. It remains unclear if floral scent from rose can affect the growth of tobacco. In order to explore the tobacco response induced by rose floral scent, we performed the proteomic analysis on(More)
