Phytocytokine signalling reopens stomata in plant immunity and water loss

Nature, Published online: 04 May 2022; doi:10.1038/s41586-022-04684-3

A plant endogenous peptide-receptor signaling pathway termed SCREW–NUT is described; it counteracts microbe-associated molecular pattern (MAMP)- and abscisic acid-induced stomatal closure to regulate the reopening of stomata after biotic and abiotic stresses.
