The lipopeptide surfactin secreted by plant-beneficial bacilli has crucial biological functions among which the ability to stimulate immune-related responses in host tissues. This phenomenon is important for biological control of plant diseases but its molecular basis is still poorly understood. In this work, we used various approaches to study the mechanism governing the perception of this biosurfactant at the plant cell surface. Combining data on oxidative burst induction in tobacco cells… CONTINUE READING
