Technical Abstract: Current advances in plant defense signaling is discussed, with emphasis on the role of nitric oxide and salicylic acid in the development of disease resistance. Nitric Oxide has recently been shown to have an important role in plant disease resistance. We show an increase in NOS-like activity in TMV challenged resistance, but not susceptible tobacco. Aconitase has been identified as one target of NO in plants, with both cytosolic and mitochondrial forms being inhibited by low levels of NO.
