Interpretive Summary: Serine/threonine protein phosphatases are a group of enzymes involved in the regulation of defense mechanisms in plants. This paper describes the effects of an inhibitor of these enzymes on the expression of all of the genes associated with these defense mechanisms. The results suggest that inhibition of these enzymes favors jasmonic acid-dependent and -independent wound responses.
