English Salicylic acid (SA) is an important mediator of plant defense response. In <i>Arabidopsis thaliana,</i> this compound was proposed to derive mainly from isochorismate, itself produced from chorismate through the activity of ICS1 (Isochorismate Synthase1). Null <i>ics1</i> mutants still accumulate some SA, suggesting the existence of an enzymatic activity redundant with ICS1 or of an... Show more…
