The Tomato R Gene Products I-2 and Mi-1 Are Functional ATP Binding Proteins with ATPase Activity
Most plant disease resistance (R) genes known today encode proteins with a central nucleotide binding site (NBS) and a C-terminal Leu-rich repeat (LRR) domain. The NBS contains three ATP/GTP bindingExpand
Resistance proteins: molecular switches of plant defence.
Specificity of the plant innate immune system is often conferred by resistance (R) proteins. Most R proteins contain leucine-rich repeats (LRRs), a central nucleotide-binding site (NBS) and aExpand
Receptor-like kinase SOBIR1/EVR interacts with receptor-like proteins in plant immunity against fungal infection
The plant immune system is activated by microbial patterns that are detected as nonself molecules. Such patterns are recognized by immune receptors that are cytoplasmic or localized at the plasmaExpand
Mutations in the NB-ARC Domain of I-2 That Impair ATP Hydrolysis Cause Autoactivation1[OA]
Resistance (R) proteins in plants confer specificity to the innate immune system. Most R proteins have a centrally located NB-ARC (nucleotide-binding adaptor shared by APAF-1, R proteins, and CED-4)Expand
Physical Association of the NB-LRR Resistance Protein Rx with a Ran GTPase–Activating Protein Is Required for Extreme Resistance to Potato virus X[W][OA]
Nucleotide binding leucine-rich repeat (NB-LRR) proteins play an important role in plant and mammalian innate immunity. In plants, these resistance proteins recognize specific pathogen-derivedExpand
To Nibble at Plant Resistance Proteins
To intercept invading microbes that threaten growth and reproduction, plants evolved a sophisticated innate immune system. Recognition of specialized pathogens is mediated by resistance proteins thatExpand
Nucleocytoplasmic Distribution Is Required for Activation of Resistance by the Potato NB-LRR Receptor Rx1 and Is Balanced by Its Functional Domains[W]
The resistance protein Rx1 exists in cytoplasmic and nuclear pools in the cell. Both subcellular pools are necessary for full PVX resistance, and the cytoplasmic compartment could be linked to PVXExpand
RanGAP2 Mediates Nucleocytoplasmic Partitioning of the NB-LRR Immune Receptor Rx in the Solanaceae, Thereby Dictating Rx Function[W][OA]
The interaction of the immune receptor Rx with RanGAP2 is required for stability and balanced partitioning of Rx between the cytoplasm and nucleus, which is essential for activation of the immuneExpand
Heat shock protein 90 and its co-chaperone protein phosphatase 5 interact with distinct regions of the tomato I-2 disease resistance protein.
Recent data suggest that plant disease resistance (R) proteins are present in multi-protein complexes. Tomato R protein I-2 confers resistance against the fungal pathogen Fusarium oxysporum. ToExpand
Characterization of five tomato phospholipase D cDNAs: rapid and specific expression of LePLDbeta1 on elicitation with xylanase.
Phospholipase D (PLD, EC has been implicated in a variety of plant processes, including signalling. In Arabidopsis thaliana a PLD gene family has been described and individual membersExpand
