NPR1 modulates cross-talk between salicylate- and jasmonate-dependent defense pathways through a novel function in the cytosol

Spoel, Steven H. ; Koornneef, Annemart ; Claessens, Susanne M. C. ; Korzelius, Jerôme P. ; Pelt, Johan A. van ; Mueller, Martin J. ; Buchala, Antony J. ; Métraux, Jean-Pierre ; Brown, Rebecca ; Kazan, Kemal ; Loon, L. C. van ; Dong, Xinnian ; Pieterse, Corné M. J.

In: The Plant Cell, 2003, vol. 15, p. 760

Plant defenses against pathogens and insects are regulated differentially by cross-communicating signal transduction pathways in which salicylic acid (SA) and jasmonic acid (JA) play key roles. In this study, we investigated the molecular mechanism of the antagonistic effect of SA on JA signaling. Arabidopsis plants unable to accumulate SA produced 25-fold higher levels of JA and showed enhanced...

Phytochrome signalling modulates the SA-perceptive pathway in Arabidopsis

Genoud, Thierry ; Buchala, Antony J. ; Chua, Nam-Hai ; Métraux, Jean-Pierre

In: The Plant Journal, 2002, vol. 31(1), p. 87

The interaction of phytochrome signalling with the SA signal transduction pathway has been investigated in Arabidopsis using single and multiple mutants affected in light perception (phyA and phyB deficient) and light-signal processing (psi2, phytochrome signalling). The induction of PR1 by SA and functional analogues has been found to strictly correlate with the activity of...

Rhizobacteria-mediated induced systemic resistance (ISR) in Arabidopsis requires sensitivity to jasmonate and ethylene but is not accompanied by an increase in their production

Pieterse, Corné M. J. ; Pelt, Johan A. van ; Ton, Jurriaan ; Parchmann, Stefanie ; Mueller, Martin J. ; Buchala, Antony J. ; Métraux, Jean-Pierre ; Loon, Leendert C. van

In: Physiological and Molecular Plant Pathology, 2000, vol. 57(3), p. 123

Plants develop an enhanced defensive capacity against a broad spectrum of plant pathogens after colonization of the roots by selected strains of nonpathogenic biocontrol bacteria. In Arabidopsis thaliana, this induced systemic resistance (ISR) functions independently of salicylic acid but requires an intact response to the plant hormones jasmonic acid (JA) and ethylene. To further...

Transgenic Arabidopsis plants expressing a fungal cutinase show alterations in the structure and properties of the cuticle and postgenital organ fusions

Sieber, Patrick ; Schorderet, Martine ; Ryser, Ulrich ; Buchala, Antony ; Kolattukudy, Pappachan ; Métraux, Jean-Pierre ; Nawrath, Christiane

In: Plant Cell, 2000, vol. 12, p. 721

A major structural component of the cuticle of plants is cutin. Analysis of the function of cutin in vivo has been limited because no mutants with specific defects in cutin have been characterized. Therefore, transgenic Arabidopsis plants were generated that express and secrete a cutinase from Fusarium solani f sp pisi. Arabidopsis plants expressing the cutinase in the extracellular...

Asymmetric μ2-1,1-azido bridged copper(II) complex: Synthesis, X-ray structure, magnetic study and DFT calculations

Zbiri, Mohamed ; Saha, Sandip ; Adhikary, Chandan ; Chaudhuri, Siddhartha ; Daul, Claude A. ; Koner, Subratanath

In: Inorganica Chimica Acta, 2006, vol. 359, p. 1193

A new rare variety asymmetric μ2-1,1-azido bridged copper(II) complex has been synthesized and characterized structurally and magnetically. The complex [Cu2L2(μ2-1,1-N3)2] · H2O · CH3OH (L = 1-(N-ortho-hydroxyacetophenimine)-2-aminoethane) (1), crystallizes in monoclinic space group, P21/n, with a = 9.469(4) Angstrom capital A, ring, b = 12.526(8) Angstrom capital A, ring, c = 12.899(10)...

Signal signature and transcriptome changes of Arabidopsis during pathogen and insect attack

Vos, Martin de ; Oosten, Vivian R. van ; Poecke, Remco M. P. van ; Pelt, Johan A. van ; Pozo, Maria J. ; Mueller, Martin J. ; Buchala, Antony J. ; Métraux, Jean-Pierre ; Loon, L. C. van ; Dicke, Marcel ; Pieterse, Corné M. J.

In: Molecular Plant-Microbe Interactions, 2005, vol. 18, p. 923

Plant defenses against pathogens and insects are regulated differentially by cross-communicating signaling pathways in which salicylic acid (SA), jasmonic acid (JA), and ethylene (ET) play key roles. To understand how plants integrate pathogen- and insect-induced signals into specific defense responses, we monitored the dynamics of SA, JA, and ET signaling in Arabidopsis after attack by a...

The epidermis-specific extracellular BODYGUARD controls cuticle development and morphogenesis in Arabidopsis

Kurdyukov, Sergey ; Faust, Andrea ; Nawrath, Christiane ; Bär, Sascha ; Voisin, Derry ; Efremova, Nadia ; Franke, Rochus ; Schreiber, Lukas ; Saedler, Heinz ; Métraux, Jean-Pierre ; Yephremov, Alexander

In: The Plant Cell, 2006, vol. 18, p. 321

The outermost epidermal cell wall is specialized to withstand pathogens and natural stresses, and lipid-based cuticular polymers are the major barrier against incursions. The Arabidopsis thaliana mutant bodyguard (bdg), which exhibits defects characteristic of the loss of cuticle structure not attributable to a lack of typical cutin monomers, unexpectedly accumulates...

Enhancing Arabidopsis salt and drought stress tolerance by chemical priming for its abscisic acid responses

Jakab, Gabor ; Ton, Jurriaan ; Flors, Victor ; Zimmerli, Laurent ; Métraux, Jean-Pierre ; Mauch-Mani, Brigitte

In: Plant Physiology, 2005, vol. 139, p. 267

Drought and salt stress tolerance of Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) plants increased following treatment with the nonprotein amino acid β-aminobutyric acid (BABA), known as an inducer of resistance against infection of plants by numerous pathogens. BABA-pretreated plants showed earlier and higher expression of the salicylic acid-dependent PR-1 and PR-5 and the...

Small-angle neutron scattering on a core-shell colloidal system: a contrast-variation study

Zackrisson, M. ; Stradner, Anna ; Schurtenberger, Peter ; Bergenholtz, Johan

In: Langmuir, 2005, vol. 21(23), p. 10835

Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) measurements are reported on a sterically stabilized, core-shell colloidal system using contrast variation. Aqueous dispersions of polystyrene particles bearing grafted poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) have been studied over a large range of particle concentrations and two different solvent conditions for the PEG polymer. SANS data are analyzed quantitatively by...

Referee networks and their spectral properties

Slanina, F. ; Zhang, Yi-Cheng

In: Acta Physica Polonica B, 2005, vol. 36(9), p. 2797

The bipartite graph connecting products and reviewers of that product is studied empirically in the case of We find that the network has power-law degree distribution on the side of reviewers, while on the side of products the distribution is better fitted by stretched exponential. The spectrum of normalised adjacency matrix shows power-law tail in the density of states. Establishing...
