A common toxin fold mediates microbial attack and plant defense
Many plant pathogens secrete toxins that enhance microbial virulence by killing host cells. Usually, these toxins are produced by particular microbial taxa, such as bacteria or fungi. In contrast,Expand

Phytotoxicity and Innate Immune Responses Induced by Nep1-Like Proteins[W]
We show that oomycete-derived Nep1 (for necrosis and ethylene-inducing peptide1)–like proteins (NLPs) trigger a comprehensive immune response in Arabidopsis thaliana, comprising posttranslationalExpand

Inducible expression of a Nep1-like protein serves as a model trigger system of camalexin biosynthesis.
Camalexin, the major Arabidopsis phytoalexin, is synthesized in response to a great variety of pathogens. Specific pathogen-associated molecular patterns, such as Nep1-like proteins from oomycetesExpand

Purification, crystallization and preliminary X-ray diffraction analysis of an oomycete-derived Nep1-like protein.
The elicitor protein Nep1-like protein from the plant pathogen Pythium aphanidermatum was purified and crystallized using the hanging-drop vapour-diffusion method. A native data set was collected toExpand
