Upon exposure to high temperature, some plant immune responses are compromised. In a recent Nature paper, Kim et al. show that ectopic expression of transcription factors involved in regulating the immune signal salicylic acid synthesis and signaling could sustain immune competency at high temperature, suggesting a possible engineering strategy for fighting global warming in agriculture.
