Salicylic acid (2-hydroxybenzoic acid; SA) is a primary signal inducing plant defenses against pathogens. This plant disease resistance, known as systemic acquired resistance (SAR), is an attractive target for the development of new plant protection agents. SAR induction is a multistep process that includes accumulation of pathogenesis-related (PR) proteins. The structure-activity profile of salicylates and related compounds has been evaluated using an inducible PR protein (PR-1a) and plant… CONTINUE READING
