Predicting the system response to the invading pathogen, dynamic modeling of hormone disease networks explores the effect of cytokinin on immune defense. Together with validation experiments on disease phenotypes and monitoring hormonal responses and gene expression data, this work identified synergistic crosstalk for cytokinin and antagonism between auxin and cytokinin regarding immunity.

Making sense of hormone-mediated defense networking: from rice to Arabidopsis

This review addresses the latest discoveries dealing with hormone-mediated immunity in rice, one of the most important food crops and an excellent model for molecular genetic studies in monocots, and highlights interactions between hormone signaling, rice defense and pathogen virulence.

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.

Probing the Unknowns in Cytokinin-Mediated Immune Defense in Arabidopsis with Systems Biology Approaches

This work unravels hub points of immune interaction mediated by cytokinin signaling in Arabidopsis and identifies functional hubs in cellular interactome that are enriched in immune functions and reconstitute sub-networks.

Integration of boolean models on hormonal interactions and prospects of cytokinin-auxin crosstalk in plant immunity

A meta-network is established by combining the plant immune regulatory network and the pathogen virulence specific network and used as substrate for dynamic simulations on hormonal aspects of plant immunity and reveals antagonistic crosstalk between auxin and cytokinin in the Pst DC3000 and Arabidopsis interaction.

Cytokinin cross-talking during biotic and abiotic stress responses

The importance of the crosstalk between cytokinin and other hormones, such as abscisic acid, jasmonate, salicylic acid, ethylene, and auxin in the modulation of plant development and stress adaptation is focused on.

Reconstruction of an Immune Dynamic Model to Simulate the Contrasting Role of Auxin and Cytokinin in Plant Immunity.

A reconstructed Boolean model encompassing hormone immune networks of Arabidopsis thaliana (Arabidopsis) and pathogenicity factors injected by model pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv is reconstructed.

Influence of hormones on microbial plant infection: A defence mechanism

Plant produce a host range of organic compounds which are hormones in nature including organic acids and vitamins in complex networks to balance the response to developmental and environmental cues,

The impact of cytokinin on jasmonate-salicylate antagonism in Arabidopsis immunity against infection with Pst DC3000

An integrated analysis shows that CK promotes the SA pathway of plant immunity and does not promote JA-mediated Arabidopsis susceptibility against infection with Pst DC3000, and is discussed in the context of an emerging model of auxin-cytokinin antagonism in plant immunity.

Cytokinin response induces immunity and fungal pathogen resistance in tomato by modulating cellular trafficking of PRRs

The results support the notion that CK acts as a priming agent, promoting pathogen resistance by inducing immunity in the host by modulating cellular trafficking of the PRR LeEIX2 and promoting biotrophic and necrotrophic pathogenic resistance in an SA and ET dependent mechanism.

Cytokinin response induces immunity and fungal pathogen resistance, and modulates trafficking of the PRR LeEIX2 in tomato

It is shown that CK induces systemic immunity in tomato, modulating cellular trafficking of the pattern recognition receptor (PRR) LeEIX2, which mediates immune responses to Xyn11 family xylanases, and promoting resistance to Botrytis cinerea and Oidium neolycopersici in an SA‐ and ET‐dependent mechanism.



Two-Component Elements Mediate Interactions between Cytokinin and Salicylic Acid in Plant Immunity

It is shown that high concentrations of cytokinin lead to increased defense responses to a virulent oomycete pathogen, through a process that is dependent on salicylic acid accumulation and activation of defense gene expression, and this results support a model in which cytokin in up-regulates plant immunity via an elevation of SA–dependent defense responses and in which SA in turn feedback-inhibits cytokinIn signaling.

Hormone crosstalk in plant disease and defense: more than just jasmonate-salicylate antagonism.

Recent advances are reported, updating current knowledge on classical defense hormones SA, JA, and ET, and the roles of auxin, abscisic acid (ABA), cytokinins (CKs), and brassinosteroids in molding plant-pathogen interactions are updated.

Network Modeling Reveals Prevalent Negative Regulatory Relationships between Signaling Sectors in Arabidopsis Immune Signaling

It is proposed that prevalent negative regulatory relationships among the signaling sectors make the plant immune signaling network a “sector-switching” network, which effectively balances two apparently conflicting demands, robustness against pathogenic perturbations and moderation of negative impacts of immune responses on plant fitness.

Modelling and experimental analysis of hormonal crosstalk in Arabidopsis

The model reproduces available mutants, and with new experimental data provides new insights into how PLS regulates auxin concentration, by controlling the relative contribution of auxin transport and biosynthesis and by integrating auxin, ethylene and cytokinin signalling.

The roles of ABA in plant–pathogen interactions

This review presents examples demonstrating the importance of crosstalk between ABA and the key biotic stress phytohormone salicylic acid in determining the outcome of plant–pathogen interactions and discusses future directions for studies of ABA in plant immunity.
