- This article identifies a role for the Arabidopsis thaliana Mediator complex subunit MED16 in bridging between specific transcription activators and the transcriptional machinery in the activation of salicylic acid–responsive defenses, including defense gene transcription, pathogen resistance, and systemic acquired resistance. MED16 also participates in ethylene- and jasmonic acid–induced defenses.
