It has recently been demonstrated that salicylic acid (SA) may serve as an endogenous signal molecule in the induction of systemic acquired resistance in tobacco and cucumber. In addition, SA is an endogenous regulator of heat and odor production in the inflorescence of some thermogenic plants. No information, however, is currently available concerning the mode(s) of action of SA in plant signal transduction. In a search for possible cellular factors that directly interact with SA, we have… CONTINUE READING
