Recent reports have revealed new guard cell signaling elements that function in stomatal defense in Arabidopsis thaliana (Arabidopsis). We discuss here the role of oxylipins, salicylic acid (SA), and abscisic acid (ABA) in stomatal immunity in response to the bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas syringae.
