Ethylene (ET) plays a critical role in the activation of plant defenses against different biotic stresses through its participation in a complex signaling network that includes jasmonic acid (JA), salicylic acid (SA), and abscisic acid (ABA). Pathogen attack, wounding, and herbivory trigger asymmetric activation of this defense signaling network, thereby affecting the final balance of interactions between its components and establishing a targeted response to the initial threat. Ethylene’s… CONTINUE READING
