A single amino acid transporter controls the uptake of priming-inducing beta-amino acids and the associated trade-off between induced resistance and plant growth

Researchers from Sheffield University have identified a regulatory plant β-amino acids transporter LHT1. The results revealed that LHT1 acts as the main transporter for cellular uptake and systemic distribution of RBH and BABA, and the levels of LHT1-mediated uptake determine the tradeoff between IR and plant growth by RBH and BABA.
