VDAC2 involvement in the stress response pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana

Z. Liu, Luo, Q. H., Wen, G. Q., Wang, J. M., Li, X. F., and Yang, Y., VDAC2 involvement in the stress response pathway in Arabidopsis thaliana, vol. 14, pp. 15511-15519, 2015.

The voltage-dependent anion channel (VDAC) is the major transport protein in the outer membrane of mitochondria, and is involved in the formation of a permeable transition pore and metabolite transport. In this study, we explored the role of Arabidopsis thaliana VDAC2 (AtVDAC2) in the signal transduction pathway in Arabidopsis under salt stress. We investigated the germination rates of AtVDAC2 transgenic lines under salicylic acid (SA) treatment, and found that AtVDAC2 can affect the sensitivity of Arabidopsis to SA.

Molecular cloning and expression analysis of jasmonic acid dependent but salicylic acid independent LeWRKY1

Various plant genes can be activated or inhibited by phytohormones under conditions of biotic and abiotic stress, especially in response to jasmonic acid (JA) and salicylic acid (SA). Interactions between JA and SA may be synergistic or antagonistic, depending on the stress condition. In this study, we cloned a full-length cDNA (LeWRKY1, GenBank accession No. FJ654265) from Lycopersicon esculentum by rapid amplification of cDNA ends. Sequence analysis showed that this gene is a group II WRKY transcription factor.
