Signal Crosstalk in Plant Stress Responses

Keiko Yoshioka (Editor), Kazuo Shinozaki (Editor)

ISBN: 978-0-813-80587-0 August 2009 Wiley-Blackwell 280 Pages



Signal Crosstalk in Plant Stress Responses focuses on current findings on signal crosstalk between abiotic and biotic stresses, including information on drought, cold, and salt stress and pathogen infection. Divided into seven chapters on critical topics in the field, the book is written by an international team of expert authors. The book is aimed at plant scientists, agronomists, and horticulturalists, as well as students.
Chapter 1. ABA in pathogen resistance (pathological point of view).

Chapter 2. Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase (MAPK) cascade.

Chapter 3. Trascription factors in abiotic and biotic stress responses-.

Chapter 4. Ca2+ mediated signals/ Ca2+ dependent protein kinases /calmodulin and calmodulin like proteins / calcineurin like proteins.

Chapter 5. Manipulation of plant hormonal crosstalk by microorganisms.

Chapter 6. Pathogen Resistance in Environmentally Sensitive Arabidopsis Mutants.

Chapter 7. Involvement of Reactive Oxygen Species/Nitric oxide in signal crosstalk
