It is shown that PGN sensing and immunity to bacterial infection in Arabidopsis thaliana requires three lysin-motif (LysM) domain proteins, and proposed that lineage-specific PGN perception systems have arisen through convergent evolution.
European consensus conference on faecal microbiota transplantation in clinical practice
This consensus report strongly recommends the implementation of FMT centres for the treatment of C. difficile infection as well as traces the guidelines of technicality, regulatory, administrative and laboratory requirements.

The molecular basis of chitin recognition by the rice receptor, CEBiP (chitin-elicitor binding protein), and following receptor dimerization is shown based on the results of biochemical studies, epitope mapping by saturation transfer difference NMR spectroscopy and molecular modeling/docking studies.
The Elicitation of Plant Innate Immunity by Lipooligosaccharide of Xanthomonas campestris*[boxs]
It is suggested that plant cells can recognize lipid A and core oligosaccharide structures within LOS to trigger defensive cellular responses and that this may occur via two distinct recognition events.
Bacterial Polysaccharides Suppress Induced Innate Immunity by Calcium Chelation
Microbially Produced Imidazole Propionate Impairs Insulin Signaling through mTORC1
Glyco-conjugates as elicitors or suppressors of plant innate immunity.
A greater insight into the mechanisms of MAMP recognition and the description of PRRs for different microbial glyco-conjugates will have considerable impact on the improvement of plant health and disease resistance.
Microbiota-induced obesity requires farnesoid X receptor
The results indicate that the gut microbiota promotes diet-induced obesity and associated phenotypes through FXR, and that FXR may contribute to increased adiposity by altering the microbiota composition.
Invited review: Priming, induction and modulation of plant defence responses by bacterial lipopolysaccharides
The effects of LPS in induction of defence-related responses in plants, the structures within LPS responsible for eliciting these effects and the possible nature of the (as yet unidentified) LPS receptors in plants are reviewed.
