N-acylethanolamines are a group of lipid mediators that accumulate under a variety of neurological and pathological conditions in mammals. N-acylethanolamine signaling is terminated by the action of diverse hydrolases, among which fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) has been well characterized. Here, we show that transgenic Arabidopsis lines overexpressing an AtFAAH are more susceptible to the bacterial pathogens Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato and P. syringae pv. maculicola. AtFAAH… CONTINUE READING
