The Vacuolar Proton-Cation Exchanger EcNHX1 Generates pH Signals for the Expression of Secondary Metabolism in Eschscholzia californica.


Cell cultures of Eschscholzia californica react to a fungal elicitor by the overproduction of antimicrobial benzophenanthridine alkaloids. The signal cascade toward the expression of biosynthetic enzymes includes (1) the activation of phospholipase A2 at the plasma membrane, resulting in a peak of lysophosphatidylcholine, and (2) a subsequent, transient… (More)
