AtsPLA2-α nuclear relocalization by the Arabidopsis transcription factor AtMYB30 leads to repression of the plant defense response
During evolution plants have developed sophisticated mechanisms to recognize attacking organisms and to translate this perception into an adaptive response. This defence response is frequently associated with the rapid death of the cells that are in close contact with the offensive pathogen, thereby preventing its spreading beyond the infected cells. For the plant, activation of defence and maintenance of surveillance are costly responses that need to be tightly regulated. In the model plant Arabidopsis, the transcription factor.
