Signalling pathways: a common theme in plants and animals?

Curr Biol. 1997 Mar 1;7(3):R175-8. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(97)70082-4.

Abstract

The unexpected notion that disease resistance mechanisms may use similar regulatory pathways to developmental processes has emerged from recent advances in understanding signal transduction pathways in insects, mammals and plants.
