Complex signal transduction pathways underlie the myriad plant responses to attack by pathogens. Ca2+ is a universal second messenger in eukaryotes that modulates various signal transduction pathways through stimulus-specific changes in its intracellular concentration. Ca2+-binding proteins such as calmodulin (CaM) detect Ca2+ signals and regulate downstream targets as part of a coordinated cellular response to a given stimulus. Here we report the characterization of a tomato gene (APR134… Expand
CML9, an Arabidopsis calmodulin-like protein, contributes to plant innate immunity through a flagellin-dependent signalling pathway.
TLDR
Evidence is presented that CML9 participates in plant innate immunity by modulating responses to bacterial strains of Pseudomonas syringae using PAMP treatment and P. syringae strains. Expand

TLDR
A role for the Cbl/Cipk signaling module in PCD is identified, establishing a mechanistic link between Ca2+ and ROS signaling in plant immunity. Expand
Mutations in AtCML9, a calmodulin-like protein from Arabidopsis thaliana, alter plant responses to abiotic stress and abscisic acid.
TLDR
Evidence that Arabidopsis thaliana CML9 plays essential roles in modulating responses to salt stress and ABA is presented, and mutations of the AtCML9 gene also alter the expression of several stress-regulated genes, suggesting that AtC ML9 is involved in salt stress tolerance through its effects on the ABA-mediated pathways.

CML42-Mediated Calcium Signaling Coordinates Responses to Spodoptera Herbivory and Abiotic Stresses in Arabidopsis1[W][OA]
TLDR
The results indicate that CML42 acts as a crucial signaling component connecting Ca2+ and JA signaling, and might serve as a Ca2- sensor having multiple functions in insect herbivory defense and abiotic stress responses. Expand
CML 42-Mediated Calcium Signaling Coordinates Responses to Spodoptera Herbivory and Abiotic Stresses in Arabidopsis 1 [ W ] [ OA ]
In the interaction between Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) and the generalist herbivorous insect Spodoptera littoralis, little is known about early events in defense signaling and their link toExpand
Developmental and stimulus-induced expression patterns of Arabidopsis calmodulin-like genes CML37, CML38 and CML39
TLDR
It is suggested that CML::GUS genes likely play important roles as sensors in Ca2+-mediated developmental and stress response pathways and provide a framework of spatial and temporal expression to direct future studies aimed at elucidating their physiological roles. Expand
The Phytophthora RXLR Effector Avrblb2 Modulates Plant Immunity by Interfering With Ca2+ Signaling Pathway
TLDR
It is suggested that Avrblb2 by interacting with calmodulin interfere with plant defense associated Ca2+ signaling in plants. Expand
A novel rice calmodulin-like gene, OsMSR2, enhances drought and salt tolerance and increases ABA sensitivity in Arabidopsis
TLDR
expression of OsMSR2 modulated salt and drought tolerance in Arabidopsis through ABA-mediated pathways and demonstrated its potential ability to bind Ca2+ in vitro, suggesting that abiotic stimuli elicit changes in intracellular calcium levels that serve to convey information and activate adaptive responses. Expand
Arabidopsis Calmodulin-Like Proteins, CML15 and CML16 Possess Biochemical Properties Distinct from Calmodulin and Show Non-overlapping Tissue Expression Patterns
TLDR
Investigation of the biochemical properties and gene promoter activity of two closely related members of the Arabidopsis CML family indicate that these CMLs behave biochemically like calcium sensors but with properties distinct from CaM and likely have non-overlapping roles in floral development. Expand
A cell wall extract from the endophytic fungus Piriformospora indica promotes growth of Arabidopsis seedlings and induces intracellular calcium elevation in roots.
TLDR
Calcium (Ca2+), as a second messenger, is crucial for signal transduction processes during many biotic interactions and is likely to be an early signalling component in the mutualistic interaction between P. indica and Arabidopsis or tobacco. Expand

Differential expression of genes encoding calmodulin-binding proteins in response to bacterial pathogens and inducers of defense responses
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that at least five bean CBPs are involved in plant defense responses, which are known to induce defense responses. Expand
Two MAPK cascades, NPR1, and TGA transcription factors play a role in Pto-mediated disease resistance in tomato.
TLDR
The identification of nine genes that play a role in resistance to bacterial speck disease both advances the knowledge of Pto signal transduction and demonstrates the conservation of many defense signaling components among diverse plant species. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that specific calmodulin (CaM) isoforms are activated by infection or pathogen-derived elicitors and participate in Ca2+-mediated induction of plant disease resistance responses, suggesting that specific CaM isoform components are components of a SA-independent signal transduction chain leading to disease resistance.

Comprehensive transcript profiling of Pto- and Prf-mediated host defense responses to infection by Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato.

The data support a role for Prf early in the Pto pathway and indicate that Prf can also function as an independent host recognition determinant of bacterial infection. Expand
Molecular basis of Pto-mediated resistance to bacterial speck disease in tomato.
TLDR
Future work on this model system will focus on how the interaction of the Pto kinase with bacterial effector proteins activates signal transduction, defining the specific role of signaling components, and ultimately, determining which host defense responses are most responsible for inhibiting growth of the pathogen and suppressing symptoms of bacterial speck disease.

The data suggest that the ability to accumulate SA is necessary for the ARR response and that SA may act as a signal for the production of the ARr-associated antimicrobial compound(s) and/or it may possess direct antibacterial activity against P. syringae. Expand

TLDR
Data indicate that the R/Avr–mediated induction of plant defense is accomplished via several parallel signaling mechanisms, and R/ Avr–dependent signal transduction pathways are interlinked at MAP kinases with responses of plants not only to non-race-specific elicitors but also to abiotic stimuli, such as wounding and mechanical stress.
