Cyclic nucleotides act in plant cell signal transduction cascades by activating cyclic nucleotide gated cation-conducting ion channels (CNGCs). Activation of CNGCs results in inward cation (including Ca(2+)) conductance across the plasma membrane. Elevation of cytosolic Ca(2+) is an early step in numerous plant cell signal transduction cascades, including plant immune responses to pathogens. CNGC involvement, along with cyclic nucleotides cAMP and cGMP, in pathogen defense programs is one… CONTINUE READING
