- Greenberg J, Silverman F, Liang H. Uncoupling salicylic acid-dependent cell death and defense-related responses from disease resistance in the Arabidopsis mutant acd5. Genetics. 2000;156:341-50 pubmed..We propose that acd5 plants mimic P. syringae-infected wild-type plants and that both SA and ethylene are normally involved in regulating cell death during some susceptible pathogen infections. ..
- Greenberg J, Vinatzer B. Identifying type III effectors of plant pathogens and analyzing their interaction with plant cells. Curr Opin Microbiol. 2003;6:20-8 pubmed..The type III secretome of P. syringae is highly variable and dynamic, a lesson gleaned from a comparative genomic analysis. Variation in the effector repertoire is likely to facilitate the adaptation of P. syringae to different hosts...
- Liang H, Yao N, Song J, Luo S, Lu H, Greenberg J. Ceramides modulate programmed cell death in plants. Genes Dev. 2003;17:2636-41 pubmed..Strikingly, C2 ceramide induces, whereas its phosphorylated derivative partially blocks, plant PCD, supporting a role for ceramide phosphorylation in modulating cell death in plants. ..
