Local and systemic wound-induction of RNase and nuclease activities in Arabidopsis: RNS1 as a marker for a JA-independent systemic signaling pathway.

Abstract

Induction of defense-related genes is one way in which plants respond to mechanical injury. We investigated whether RNases are involved in the wound response in Arabidopsis thaliana. As in other plant systems, several activities are induced with various timings in damaged leaves, stems and seedlings in Arabidopsis, including at least three bifunctional… (More)
