The complexity of disease signaling in Arabidopsis

Curr Opin Immunol. 2001 Feb;13(1):63-8. doi: 10.1016/s0952-7915(00)00183-7.


Not more than 10 years ago it was generally accepted that pathogen-inducible defense mechanisms in plants are triggered through a central signaling cascade that regulates a multicomponent defense response. Now we know that the plant defense system is regulated through a complex network of various signaling cascades.
