Selection pressure exerted by insects and microorganisms shapes the diversity of plant secondary metabolites. We identified a metabolic pathway for glucosinolates, known insect deterrents, that differs from the pathway activated by chewing insects. This pathway is active in living plant cells, may contribute to glucosinolate turnover, and has been recruited for broad-spectrum antifungal defense responses. The Arabidopsis CYP81F2 gene encodes a P450 monooxygenase that is essential for the… Expand
Glucosinolate Metabolites Required for an Arabidopsis Innate Immune Response
TLDR
It is shown that well-studied plant metabolites, previously identified as important in avoiding damage by herbivores, are also required as a component of the plant defense response against microbial pathogens. Expand
The Function of Glucosinolates and Related Metabolites in Plant Innate Immunity
TLDR
Experimental evidence indicate that some molecules released during pathogen-triggered glucosinolate metabolism may activate evolutionarily conserved immune responses, possibly through affecting glutathione redox state in the infected cell. Expand
Biosynthesis of glucosinolates--gene discovery and beyond.
TLDR
Major breakthroughs include the ability to produce glucosinolates in Nicotiana benthamiana, the finding that specific glucos inolates play a key role in Arabidopsis innate immune response, and a better understanding of the link between primary sulfur metabolism and glucosInolate biosynthesis. Expand
Phytoalexins in defense against pathogens.
TLDR
This review focuses on the biosynthesis and regulation of camalexin, and its role in plant defense, and details some of the phytoalexins produced by a range of crop plants from Brassicaceae, Fabaceae, Solanaceae, Vitaceae and Poaceae. Expand
Moonlighting Function of Phytochelatin Synthase1 in Extracellular Defense against Fungal Pathogens1[OPEN]
TLDR
A role for PCS in disease resistance against plant pathogenic fungi is described and this enzyme is revealed to be a moonlighting protein important for plant responses to both biotic and abiotic stresses. Expand
Arabidopsis phytochelatin synthase 1, but not phytochelatin synthesis, functions in extracellular defense against multiple fungal pathogens
TLDR
A hitherto uncharacterized role for PCS in disease resistance against plant pathogenic fungi is described and this enzyme is revealed to be a moonlighting protein important for plant responses to both biotic and abiotic stresses. Expand
Regulation of glucosinolate biosynthesis.
TLDR
The central players in glucosinolate regulation, MYB and basic helix-loop-helix transcription factors, as well as the plant hormone jasmonate, are presented, which together with other hormones and environmental signals allow the coordinated and rapid regulation of glucosInolate genes. Expand
Metabolic Engineering in Nicotiana benthamiana Reveals Key Enzyme Functions in Arabidopsis Indole Glucosinolate Modification[W]
TLDR
All members of a small gene subfamily of cytochrome P450 monooxygenases, CYP81Fs, are capable of carrying out hydroxylation reactions of the glucosinolate indole ring, leading from I3M to 4-hydroxy-indol-3-yl-methyl and/or 1-hydroxylations or methylations, and that it is possible to produce indole glucos inolates in a noncruciferous plant. Expand
Regulatory and Functional Aspects of Indolic Metabolism in Plant Systemic Acquired Resistance.
TLDR
Investigation of the functional role and regulatory characteristics of indolic metabolism in Arabidopsis systemic acquired resistance (SAR) triggered by the bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas syringae suggests that systemically elevated indoles are dispensable for SAR and associated systemic increases of salicylic acid. Expand
WRKY33-mediated indole glucosinolate metabolic pathway confers host resistance against Alternaria brassicicola
TLDR
A positive role of WRKY33 is revealed in host resistance to Alternaria brassicicola by directly regulating the transcription of genes involved in the biosynthesis and atypical hydrolysis of IGS both in Arabidopsis and Chinese kale. Expand

Glucosinolate Metabolites Required for an Arabidopsis Innate Immune Response
TLDR

beta-Glucosidases as detonators of plant chemical defense.
TLDR
This review provides an update on knowledge of the beta-glucosidases involved in activation of the four major classes of phytoanticipins: cyanogenic glucosides, benzoxazinoid glucoside, avenacosides and glucosinolates. Expand
Biology and biochemistry of glucosinolates.
TLDR
Glucosinolates are sulfur-rich, anionic natural products that upon hydrolysis by endogenous thioglucosidases called myrosinases produce several different products that function as cancer-preventing agents, biopesticides, and flavor compounds. Expand
Myzus persicae (green peach aphid) feeding on Arabidopsis induces the formation of a deterrent indole glucosinolate.

TLDR
Together, these results demonstrate that, in response to aphid feeding, Arabidopsis plants convert one indole glucosinolate to another that provides a greater defensive benefit. Expand
Secondary metabolites influence Arabidopsis/Botrytis interactions: variation in host production and pathogen sensitivity.
TLDR
The results indicate that Arabidopsis/Botrytis interactions are influenced at the metabolic level by variations in toxin production in the host and sensitivity in the pathogen. Expand
Arabidopsis PAD3, a Gene Required for Camalexin Biosynthesis, Encodes a Putative Cytochrome P450 Monooxygenase
TLDR
The results strongly support the idea that camalexin does not play a major role in plant resistance to P. syringae infection, although it is involved in resistance to a fungal pathogen. Expand
Co-option of a default secretory pathway for plant immune responses
TLDR
The disease resistance function of the secretory PEN1–SNAP33–VAMP721/722 complex and the pathogen-induced subcellular dynamics of its components are mechanistically reminiscent of immunological synapse formation in vertebrates, enabling execution of immune responses through focal secretion. Expand
ESP and ESM1 mediate indol-3-acetonitrile production from indol-3-ylmethyl glucosinolate in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
It is shown that myrosinase is not sufficient for indol-3-acetonitrile production from indol -3-ylmethyl glucosinolate and requires the presence of functional epithospecifier protein in planta and in vitro to produce significant levels of indol, 3-aconetitrile. Expand
SNARE-protein-mediated disease resistance at the plant cell wall
TLDR
It is shown that resistance in barley requires a SNAP-25 (synaptosome-associated protein, molecular mass 25 kDa) homologue capable of forming a binary SNAP receptor (SNARE) complex with ROR2, and functions associated with SNARE-dependent penetration resistance are dispensable for immunity mediated by race-specific resistance (R) genes, highlighting fundamental differences between these two resistance forms. Expand
Camalexin is synthesized from indole-3-acetaldoxime, a key branching point between primary and secondary metabolism in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
The structural similarity between cruciferous indole phytoalexins suggests that these compounds are biogenetically related and synthesized from tryptophan via IAOx by CYP79B homologues, where IAOx has been shown to play a critical role in IAA homeostasis. Expand
