GDSL lipases modulate immunity through lipid homeostasis in rice
Eight-week-old transgenic and wild-type plants were inoculated with Xoo (strain PXO99A). The induction of the PR genes, PR1a (A), PR1b (B), PR5 (C) and PR10 (D), in response to pathogen infection was compromised in OsGLIP1-OE plants, while silencing of both OsGLIP1 and OsGLIP2 significantly promoted the induction of the PR genes. Data shown are means ± SD from three biological replicates. Asterisks indicate significant difference in comparison with the wild-type control (Student’s t-test, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01).
