Stress priming, memory and signaling in plants

Plant responses to stress are shaped by numerous environmental factors. A plant´s phenotype may become prepared (primed) for improved inducible stress responses by environmental cues indicating the impending stress. If the priming cue is not immediately preceding the subsequent stress, priming requires storage of “information”, i.e. memory of the priming stimulus, to result in improved stress responses. Stress priming, memory and signaling require various interacting mechanisms involving chromatin marking, microRNA biosynthesis, expression of transcription factor genes, (in)activation of enzymes, phytohormone signaling, changes in levels of secondary metabolites and ion homeostasis. Research on plant stress priming, memory and signaling is a rapidly growing field which needs to consider, in addition to the molecular mechanisms, ecological aspects to gain in-depth knowledge on how plants cope with stress, and which parameters determine their ability to store information about a past stress. This Special Issue welcomes submissions of original research articles, perspective and review papers on results and topics which move us forward and closer to this in-depth knowledge.

Deadline for submissions: 9th April 2018
