Moving from model plants to crop plants – prevailing or particular systemic defense strategies?


Abstract: Lacking specialized immune cells and exposed to a large amount of various attackers, plants are heavily relying on a highly adaptive inducible defence system. Their immune responses occur both locally with the induction of pattern- and/or effector-triggered immunity, as well as systemically with the induction of systemic acquired resistance and induced systemic resistance. These defence responses are pivotally regulated by molecular and chemical signals. In the past, various signals have been deciphered in dicot plants such as Arabidopsis, whereas the knowledge in crop plants is more elusive.
