• The bacterial effector HopZ1a acetylates ZIP1 kinase to suppress Arabidopsis defence responses 

      Rueda-Blanco, Javier; Rufián, José S.; López-Márquez, Diego; Beuzon-Lopez, Carmen del Rosario; Ruiz-Albert, Francisco Javier (2018-09-10)
      During the plant-pathogen interaction, disease or resistance are determined in the plant by a series of molecular events. The plant detects Pathogen-Associated Molecular Patterns (PAMPs), such as flagellin, triggering a ...
    • miRNA/phasiRNA mediated regulation of plant defense response against P. syringae 

      López-Márquez, Diego; Del Espino Pérez, Ángel; López-Pagán, Nieves; Rodríguez-Negrete, Edgar A.; Zumaquero, A.; [et al.] (2018-09-10)
      Gene silencing is a mechanism of regulation of gene expression where the small RNAs (sRNAs) are key components for giving specificity to the system. In plants, two main types of noncoding small RNA molecules have been ...
