Jasmonate and Salicylate as Global Signals for Defense Gene Expression

P Reymond et al. Curr Opin Plant Biol.

Abstract

Remarkably, only a few low molecular mass signals, including jasmonic acid, ethylene and salicylic acid, upregulate the expression of scores of defense-related genes. Using these regulators, the plant fine-tunes its defense gene expression against aggressors which, in some cases, may be able to disrupt or amplify plant defense signal pathways to their own ends.
