A ‘GLoRy’ Battle for Cotton against Fusarium Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Glutamate receptor-like (GLR) proteins are ligand-gated ion channels regulating various plant physiology. They function as calcium channels in plant immunity and mediate long-distance defense to herbivores. A recent study by Liu et al. identified a cotton GLR as a noncanonical resistance protein to Fusarium wilt, expanding the paradigm of GLR functions in plant immunity.
