Systemic acquired resistance: turning local infection into global defense.
TLDR
Systemic acquired resistance is an induced immune mechanism in plants that can be passed on to progeny through epigenetic regulation and redox regulators, the mediator complex, WRKY transcription factors, endoplasmic reticulum-resident proteins, and DNA repair proteins play critical roles in SAR.
Cytoplasmic H2O2 prevents translocation of NPR1 to the nucleus and inhibits the induction of PR genes in Arabidopsis
TLDR
It is suggested that H2O2 has a signaling role in pathogenesis, acting as a negative regulator of NPR1 translocation to the nucleus, limiting the NPR1-dependent gene expression.
NPR3 and NPR4 are receptors for the immune signal salicylic acid in plants
TLDR
It is shown that the NPR1 paralogues NPR3 and NPR4 are SA receptors that bind SA with different affinities, and that this mutant is defective in pathogen effector-triggered programmed cell death and immunity.
Systemic acquired resistance.
TLDR
A model describing the sequence of events leading from initial infection to the induction of defense genes is presented and exciting new data suggest that the mobile signal for SAR might be a lipid molecule.
Plant Immunity Requires Conformational Charges of NPR1 via S-Nitrosylation and Thioredoxins
TLDR
It is reported that S-nitrosylation of NPR1 by S-Nitrosoglutathione at cysteine-156 facilitates its oligomerization, which maintains protein homeostasis upon SA induction, and suggest a link between pathogen-triggered redox changes and gene regulation in plant immunity.
Overexpression of (At)NPR1 in rice leads to a BTH- and environment-induced lesion-mimic/cell death phenotype.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that overexpression of (At)NPR1 in rice also triggers a lesion-mimic/cell death (LMD) phenotype, suggesting that (At), the central regulator of SAR in Arabidopsis, has multiple roles in plant stress responses that may affect its efficacy as a transgenic tool for engineering broad-spectrum resistance.
Regulation of Systemic Acquired Resistance through the Interaction of Arabidopsis thaliana Transcription factors TGAI and TGA2 with NPRI
TLDR
It is discovered that one of these transcription factors, TGA2, behaves as a repressor in unchallenged Arabidopsis and acts to repress NPRI-dependent activation of PRJ, and the ability of the TGAI-NPRI complex to activate transcription results from a novel transactivation domain in NPRI.
Induced disease resistance signaling in plants
TLDR
The model plant species Arabidopsis thaliana has been extensively explored to study the molecular basis of systemically induced resistance and the current knowledge on induced disease resistance signaling in plants is reviewed.

Nuclear Localization of NPR1 Is Required for Activation of PR Gene Expression
TLDR
It is clearly demonstrate that nuclear localization of NPR1 is essential for its activity in inducing PR genes.
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.

TLDR
It is found that NPR1 confers resistance to the pathogens Pseudomonas syringae and Peronospora parasitica in a dosage-dependent fashion and is shown to be a workable target for genetic engineering of nonspecific resistance in plants.
Activation of Host Defense Mechanisms by Elevated Production of H2O2 in Transgenic Plants
TLDR
The results suggest that constitutively elevated sublethal levels of H2O2 are sufficient to activate an array of host defense mechanisms, and these defense mechanisms may be a major contributing factor to the H 2O2-mediated disease resistance in transgenic plants.
Functional analysis of regulatory sequences controlling PR-1 gene expression in Arabidopsis.
TLDR
Several inducible in vivo footprints located at or nearby these motifs demonstrate significant and highly reproducible changes in DNA accessibility following SAR induction, tightly correlated with the functionally important regions of the promoter identified by mutation analysis.
Characterization of a salicylic acid-insensitive mutant (sai1) of Arabidopsis thaliana, identified in a selective screen utilizing the SA-inducible expression of the tms2 gene.
TLDR
A genetic screen in Arabidopsis thaliana is developed that utilizes the Agrobacterium tumefaciens tms2 gene as a counter-selectable marker and suggests that the wild-type SAI1 gene acts as a positive regulator in the SA signal transduction pathway.
Active oxygen species in the induction of plant systemic acquired resistance by salicylic acid.
TLDR
Salicylic acid specifically inhibited the catalase activity in vitro and induced an increase in H2O2 concentrations in vivo, suggesting involvement in SA-mediated induction of systemic acquired resistance (SAR) in plants.
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.
