Plant hormones have pivotal roles in the regulation of plant growth, development, and reproduction. Additionally, they emerged as cellular signal molecules with key functions in the regulation of immune responses to microbial pathogens, insect herbivores, and beneficial microbes. Their signaling pathways are interconnected in a complex network, which provides plants with an enormous regulatory potential to rapidly adapt to their biotic environment and to utilize their limited resources for…

Disease resistance or growth: the role of plant hormones in balancing immune responses and fitness costs

Novel insights are addressed on the regulatory roles of the ABA, SA, and auxin in plant resistance to pathogens and the complex interactions among their signal transduction pathways are described.

A Current Scenario on Role of Brassinosteroids in Plant Defense Triggered in Response to Biotic Challenges

Brassinosteroids, a growth-promoting hormone is also an imperative plant defense regulator and regulates sulfur metabolism and production of nitric oxide and consequently affect plants immune responses.

Hormone Signaling Networks Open Multiple Routes for Immunity and Disease in Plants

Here, a network biology perspective is advocated and the application of systems biology approaches for a comprehensive understanding of plantpathogen interactions is emphasized.

Phytohormone pathways as targets of pathogens to facilitate infection

Mechanisms by which a wide array of pathogens gain benefits from manipulating plant hormone pathways are summarized.

Cytokinins as key regulators in plant-microbe-insect interactions: connecting plant growth and defence

It is suggested that cytokinins (CKs) are key regulators of the plant growth-defence trade-off and highlights the complexity of the finely balanced responses that plants use while facing both invaders and mutualists.
