A Receptor Kinase-Like Protein Encoded by the Rice Disease Resistance Gene, Xa21
The sequence of the predicted protein, which carries both a leucine-rich repeat motif and a serine-threonine kinase-like domain, suggests a role in cell surface recognition of a pathogen ligand and subsequent activation of an intracellular defense response.
Sub1A is an ethylene-response-factor-like gene that confers submergence tolerance to rice
The identification of a cluster of three genes at the Sub1 locus, encoding putative ethylene response factors, indicates that Sub1A-1 is a primary determinant of submergence tolerance in O. sativa ssp.
Saturated molecular map of the rice genome based on an interspecific backcross population.
A molecular map has been constructed for the rice genome comprised of 726 markers (mainly restriction fragment length polymorphisms; RFLPs) derived from a backcross between cultivated rice and its wild African relative, Oryza longistaminata.

It is demonstrated that the Sub1 region haplotype determines ethylene- and GA-mediated metabolic and developmental responses to submergence through differential expression of Sub1A and Sub1C, which dampens ethylene production and GA responsiveness.
Xanthomonas oryzae pathovars: model pathogens of a model crop.
X. oryzae pathovars with rice present as models for understanding fundamental aspects of bacterial pathogenesis of plants and plant disease resistance, as well as other aspects of plant and microbial biology, with implications also for animal innate immunity.

Top 10 plant pathogenic bacteria in molecular plant pathology.
A survey of bacterial pathologists asked them to nominate the bacterial pathogens they would place in a 'Top 10' based on scientific/economic importance, and a short section is presented on each bacterium in the Top 10 list and its importance, with the intention of initiating discussion and debate amongst the plant bacteriology community.
Reference genome sequence of the model plant Setaria
A high-quality reference genome sequence for foxtail millet (Setaria italica) is generated and regions of differential single-nucleotide polymorphism density, distribution of transposable elements, small RNA content, chromosomal rearrangement and segregation distortion are identified.

Results indicate that NH1 may be involved in the regulation of SA in response to environmental changes, and indicates that rice has a disease-resistance pathway similar to the Arabidopsis SAR pathway.
Perception of brassinosteroids by the extracellular domain of the receptor kinase BRI1.
Results indicate that the extracellular domain of BRI1 perceives brassinosteroids, which suggest a general signaling mechanism for the LRR receptor kinases of plants, and should allow the discovery of ligands for the largest group of plant receptor Kinases.
