Plant Wounding Response

Science video on plant response to wounding

Calcium waves move through plants as part of a systemic stress signaling system.

Right: Schematic diagram showing key components required for the propagation of a calcium wave and the role that reactive oxygen species potentially play (Reviewed by Gilroy et al., 2015). Recent work has demonstrated that glutmate-like receptors place an important role in this system and it can be activated by the addition of glutamate (Toyota et al., 2019).
