Accumulation of salicylic acid (SA) has been shown to be necessary for induction of SAR [ 3 ] .

Genes induced in response to other stresses, such as drought [ 51 ] , heat shock [ 52 ] , dehydration [ 53 54 55 ] , and elicitors such as Avr9 [ 56 ] , avrRpt2 [ 57 ] and harpins [ 58 59 ] , were also identified in the stress cDNA collection, underscoring the overlap between the different stress responses
