The immune-related, TGA1 redox-switch: To be or not to be?

Yuan Li, Gary J. Loake

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


A key feature following attempted pathogen ingress is the marked and rapid production of reactive oxygen and nitrogen intermediates (ROI and RNI, respectively), the so‐called oxidative and nitrosative burst (Grant & Loake, 2000; Besson‐Bard et al., 2008). These molecules are directly antimicrobial, drive the oxidative cross‐linking of cell wall structural proteins, cue the development of programmed cell death in directly challenged cells and orchestrate a plethora of immune responses surrounding the site of attempted pathogen ingress (Torres et al., 2002; Yu et al., 2014).
