• The dual interplay of RAV5 in activating nitrate reductases and repressing catalase activity to improve disease resistance in cassava

    Summary
    Cassava bacterial blight caused by Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. manihotis seriously affects cassava yield. Nitrate reductase plays an important role in plant nitrogen metabolism in plants. However, the in vivo role of NR and the corresponding signalling pathway remain unclear in cassava. In this study, we isolated MeNR1/2 and revealed their novel upstream transcription factor MeRAV5. We also identified MeCatalase1 as the interacting protein of MeRAV5. In addition, we investigated the role of MeCatalase1 and MeRAV5‐MeNR1/2 module in cassava defence response. MeNRs positively regulates...
