In a screen for suppressors of npr1-5-based salicylic acid (SA) insensitivity, we isolated a semidominant gain-of-function mutation, designated ssi4, that confers constitutive expression of several PR (pathogenesis-related) genes, induces SA accumulation, triggers programmed cell death, and enhances resistance to bacterial and oomycete pathogens.

NADPH:protochlorophyllide oxidoreductase (POR) catalyzes the light-dependent reduction of protochlorophyllide. To elucidate the physiological function of three differentially regulated POR isoforms (PORA, PORB and PORC) in Arabidopsis thaliana, we isolated T-DNA tagged null mutants of porB and porC. The mature seedlings of the mutants had normal(More)
Using a high-affinity phosphate transporter gene of Arabidopsis thaliana, PHT1, as a probe, three Arabidopsis homologs were isolated, named PHT4, PHT5 and PHT6, in addition to the previously isolated PHT2 and PHT3. The amino acid sequences deduced from the three nucleotides were 32-42% homologous with microbial phosphate transporters of Saccharomyces(More)
