Overexpression of Arabidopsis MAP kinase kinase 7 leads to activation of plant basal and systemic acquired resistance.
TLDR
The activation-tagged bud1 mutant, in which the expression of MKK7 is increased, accumulates elevated levels of salicylic acid, exhibits constitutive pathogenesis-related (PR) gene expression, and displays enhanced resistance to both Pseudomonas syringae pv.
Silencing of the Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase MPK6 Compromises Disease Resistance in Arabidopsis
TLDR
Results provide direct evidence that a specific MAPK positively regulates VSP1 expression and resistance to a primary infection by certain pathogens, whereas systemic resistance and expression of several other defense genes appears to be mediated either by a functionally redundant MAPK(s) or independently from MPK6-dependent resistance.
The MAP kinase substrate MKS1 is a regulator of plant defense responses
TLDR
Yeast two‐hybrid screening revealed that MKS1 interacts with the WRKY transcription factors WRKY25 and WRKY33, and may contribute to MPK4‐regulated defense activation by coupling the kinase to specific WR KY transcription factors.
The MAP kinase kinase MKK2 affects disease resistance in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
The results indicate that MKK2 is involved in regulating hormone levels in response to pathogens, and plays a role in abiotic stress tolerance and plant disease resistance.
An Arabidopsis Homeodomain Transcription Factor, OVEREXPRESSOR OF CATIONIC PEROXIDASE 3, Mediates Resistance to Infection by Necrotrophic Pathogens
TLDR
The identification and characterization of a mutant, oCP3 (for overexpressor of cationic peroxidase 3), in which the reporter construct is constitutively expressed is reported, suggesting that OCP3 is an important factor for the COI1-dependent resistance of plants to infection by necrotrophic pathogens.
Arabidopsis MAP kinase 4 regulates salicylic acid- and jasmonic acid/ethylene-dependent responses via EDS1 and PAD4.
TLDR
It is shown here that mpk4 mutants are also defective in defense gene induction in response to ethylene (ET), and that they are more susceptible than wild-type (WT) to Alternaria brassicicola that induces the ET/JA defense pathway(s).
Constitutively Active Arabidopsis MAP Kinase 3 Triggers Defense Responses Involving Salicylic Acid and SUMM2 Resistance Protein1
TLDR
A novel mechanism by which the MAPK signaling network contributes to a robust defense-response system is unraveled, which involves bypassing SA and ethylene signaling to activate defense responses.
Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 6 negatively regulates anthocyanin induction in Arabidopsis
TLDR
RNA-sequencing analysis revealed that the expression level of MYB75 (Myb transcription factor 75), which encodes a key positive regulator of anthocyanin biosynthesis, is up-regulated in mkk6 mutant plants, suggesting that increased MyB75 expression contributes to the elevated anthocianin levels.
Mitogen-activated protein kinase 4 is a salicylic acid-independent regulator of growth but not of photosynthesis in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
The presented results strongly suggest that MPK4 is an ROS/hormonal rheostat hub that negatively, in an SA-dependent manner, regulates immune defenses, but at the same time positively regulates photosynthesis, ROS metabolism, and growth.

The Arabidopsis ssi1 Mutation Restores Pathogenesis-Related Gene Expression in npr1 Plants and Renders Defensin Gene Expression Salicylic Acid Dependent
TLDR
The results suggest that SSI1 may function as a switch modulating cross-talk between the SA- and jasmonic acid/ethylene–mediated defense signal transduction pathways.
A mutation in Arabidopsis that leads to constitutive expression of systemic acquired resistance.
Systemic acquired resistance (SAR) is a nonspecific defense response in plants that is associated with an increase in the endogenous level of salicylic acid (SA) and elevated expression of
The cpr 5 Mutant of Arabidopsis Expresses Both NPRl-Dependent and NPRl-1 ndependent Resistance
TLDR
It is concluded that the cpr5 mutation leads to constitutive expression of both an NPRl -dependent and an NPR1-independent SAR pathway, indicating that these pathways are connected in early signal transduction steps and that they have overlapping functions in providing resistance.
Suppression and Restoration of Lesion Formation in Arabidopsis lsd Mutants.
TLDR
Two new mutants are described that develop spontaneous necrotic lesions and possess elevated levels of salicylic acid (SA) as well as heightened disease resistance, similar to the previously characterized lsd and accelerated cell death (acd2) mutants.
Characterization of an Arabidopsis Mutant That Is Nonresponsive to Inducers of Systemic Acquired Resistance.
TLDR
A role for PR genes in preventing the proximal spread of pathogens in addition to their suggested role in SAR is suggested after the insensitivity of npr1 to SA, INA, and avirulent pathogens in SAR induction indicates that these inducers share a common signal transduction pathway.
Arabidopsis signal transduction mutant defective in chemically and biologically induced disease resistance.
TLDR
The ability of nim1 plants to support growth of normally incompatible races of a fungal pathogen indicates a role for this pathway in expression of genetically determined resistance, consistent with earlier findings for transgenic plants engineered to break down SA.
Inhibition of protoporphyrinogen oxidase expression in Arabidopsis causes a lesion-mimic phenotype that induces systemic acquired resistance.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that genetic or chemical disruption of a metabolic pathway can lead to the induction of a set of defence responses including activation of SAR.
Arabidopsis thaliana EDS4 contributes to salicylic acid (SA)-dependent expression of defense responses: evidence for inhibition of jasmonic acid signaling by SA.
TLDR
Genetic evidence is provided to support the idea that SA interferes with JA-dependent signaling, and two possible working models of the role of EDS4 in governing activation of defense responses are presented.
Interaction of NPR1 with basic leucine zipper protein transcription factors that bind sequences required for salicylic acid induction of the PR-1 gene.
TLDR
Using NPR1 as bait in a yeast two-hybrid screen, a subclass of transcription factors in the basic leucine zipper protein family (AHBP-1b and TGA6) is identified and showed that they interact specifically in yeast and in vitro with NPR1.
