Tomato Receptors of the Bacterial Cold Shock Protein and the Plant Peptide Signal Systemin

Lei Wang
Plants have large families of plasma membrane localized receptors that can sense extracellular signals and initiate appropriate cytoplasmic responses. The csp22 peptide derived from bacterial cold shock protein (CSP) has been known as an immune elicitor for more than a decade, but the corresponding receptor has not been identified. Discovered more than a quarter-century ago as the first plant peptide hormone, systemin was shown to be critical for systemic wound response and anti-herbivore defense in...
