Arabidopsis MKS1 is involved in basal immunity and requires an intact N-terminal domain for proper function

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Innate immune signaling pathways in animals and plants are regulated by mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades. MAP kinase 4 (MPK4) functions downstream of innate immune receptors via a nuclear substrate MKS1 to regulate the activity of the WRKY33 transcription factor, which in turn controls the production of anti-microbial phytoalexins.
