Abstract

Systemic acquired resistance (SAR) is a process wherein plants use chemical signals to communicate broad-spectrum systemic immunity to distant tissue. Two studies recently identified N-hydroxypipecolic acid as an additional essential SAR inducer. These findings assemble another piece in the SAR puzzle.
