Compared to narrow spectrum lighting, Samsung's full-spectrum-based LEDs encourage healthier and more balanced plant growth by stimulating photosynthesis, enhancing plant immunity and increasing nutritional value.
They cover you are what you can find to eat: bacterial metabolism in the rhizosphere, the role of plasmids in plant-bacteria interactions, plant immunity: the MTI-ETI model and beyond, how endofungal bacteria increase fitness of their host fungi, plant-nematode interactions assisted by microbes in the rhizosphere, and apple replant disease: causes and mitigation strategies.
Numerous studies have reported that non-pathogenic microbes can also stimulate plant immunity and reduce the negative impacts from pathogens [11-15].
Studies have revealed that NO is involved in stimulation of seed germination (Beligni and Lamattina, 1999), plant maturation and senescence (Ya'acov et al., 1998; Guo and Crawford, 2005), stomatal regulation (Neill et al., 2002; Bright et al., 2006), abiotic stress tolerance (Corpas et al., 2011; Khan et al., 2012) and plant immunity (Yoshioka et al., 2011).
The second layer of plant immunity relies on the specific recognition of pathogen effectors by disease resistance proteins (R), leading to a strong and specific immune response toward those isolates of a pathogen that produce the recognized effector.
There were very obvious morphological differences in the treated plants versus the control plants, such as thicker and shorter roots and greater quantity, as well as a greater increase in plant immunity and levels of active constituents.
Here we describe a project exploring the role of IRE1 during early responses to SA (pro-survival) and early stages of HR (pro-death) aimed at identified new mRNA targets of IRE1, thus expanding the role of this key stress sensor in cellular fate decisions in plant immunity.
Lamb, "Reactive oxygen intermediates mediate a systemic signal network in the establishment of plant immunity," Cell, vol.
This work for plant biologists, plant biotechnologists, and crop scientists details the molecular mechanisms of plant immunity and reviews recent findings in this area.
"Some scientists have shown that these proteins block signaling transduction pathways in the plant, which eventually weakens plant immunity. We are introducing a fresh perspective on this topic, namely, that the pathogens evolved strategies to directly attack the production of plant antimicrobial compounds, such as isoflavones, thus compromising the plant's defense mechanism," said Ma.
In the field of plant immunity, he says, "there are still really big questions."
