Temporal and spatial expression patterns of the gene AtBSMT1 encoding a salicylic acid methyltransferase in arabidopsis transgenic plants

Expression patterns of AtBSMT1 encoding an S-adenosyl-L-methionine: salicylic acid carboxyl methyltransferase from Arabidopsis thaliana were analyzed in AtBSMT1 promoter::β-glucuronidase (GUS) transgenic Arabidopsis. AtBSMT1 was expressed in flowers and siliques and induced under specific biotic/abiotic stress conditions. The results indicated that the induction of AtBSMT1 is regulated by plant disease response and jasmonic acid signaling.
