I Will Survive: How NPR1 Condensation Promotes Plant Cell Survival.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

The plant immune response regulator NPR1 resides in either the nucleus or in cytoplasmic puncta, depending on levels of the plant hormone salicylic acid. NPR1 nuclear roles include pathogenesis response (PR) gene regulation. In this issue of Cell, Zavaliev et al. determine that cytoplasmic NPR1-containing assemblies are consistent with multi-component protein condensates with roles to promote cell survival.
