YELLOW STRIPE-LIKE1 YSL1 and YSL3 are involved in iron Fe and copper Cu translocation. Previously, we reported that upregulation of YSL1 and YSL3 under excess Cu caused high accumulation of Cu in the siz1 mutant, impaired in small ubiquitin-like modifier SUMO E3 ligase. Interestingly, the siz1 mutant contains high levels of salicylic acid SA, involved in plant defense against biotrophic pathogens. In this study, we found that YSL1 and YSL3 were upregulated by SA. SA-regulated YSL3 but not YSL1 depended on NONEXPRESSOR OF PR1 NPR1. Susceptibility to the pathogen Pseudomonas syringe pv. tomato Pst DC3000 was greater for ysl3 than the wild type. Also, during Pst DC3000 infection, YSL3 was positively regulated by SA signaling through NPR1 and the upregulation was enhanced in the coi1 mutant that defective in the jasmonic acid JA receptor, CORONATINE INSENSITIVE1. This line of evidence indicates that the regulation of YSL3 is downstream of SA signaling and interplays with JA signaling for involvement in pathogen-induced defense. We provide new insights into the biological function of the metal transporter YSL3 in plant pathogen defense.
