A key component in the management of many diseases of crops is the use of plant disease resistance genes. However, the discovery and then sequence identification of these plant genes is challenging, whereas the characterization of the molecules that they recognize, the effector/avirulence products in pathogens, is often considerably more straight forward. Effectors are small proteins secreted by pathogens that can play major roles in modulating a plant's defense against attack. Effectors can be… 
Oligosaccharins as Elicitors of Defense Responses in Wheat
TLDR
Exploring the use of cell wall-derived elicitors, known as oligosaccharins, stands as an attractive option for the management of crop diseases by improving plant readiness for responding promptly to potential infections.
Plant–Pathogen Molecular Dialogue: Evolution, Mechanisms and Agricultural Implementation
TLDR
The multifaceted approach to late blight combines the search for new resistance genes in genetic collections, the characterization of their function and stacking these genes in potato cultivars in order to breed new donors of long-lasting and durable resistance together with express assessment of pathogen virulence genes.
Can effectoromics and loss-of-susceptibility be exploited for improving Fusarium head blight resistance in wheat?
TLDR
This paper first briefly highlighted recent examples of improving resistance against pathogens via new techniques in different host species, then proposes effective strategies towards developing wheat cultivars with improved resistance to FHB.
Understanding Host–Pathogen Interactions in Brassica napus in the Omics Era
TLDR
To gain further insights into the host–pathogen interactions in relation to Brassica diseases, it is critical that current knowledge in this area is reviewed and how omics technologies can offer promising results and help to push boundaries in the understanding of the resistance mechanisms are discussed.
Surviving the odds: From perception to survival of fungal phytopathogens under host-generated oxidative burst
TLDR
The oxidative stress response of filamentous fungi, their perception signaling, and recent insights that provide a comprehensive understanding of the distinct survival mechanisms of fungal pathogens in response to the host-generated oxidative burst are discussed.
Citrus Postharvest Green Mold: Recent Advances in Fungal Pathogenicity and Fruit Resistance
TLDR
Progress has occurred in the citrus fruit–Pd interaction in recent years, mainly due to their genome sequencing and establishment or optimization of their genetic transformation systems.
The Multiple Facets of Plant–Fungal Interactions Revealed Through Plant and Fungal Secretomics
TLDR
The aim in this review is to extend the definition of the plant and fungal secretomes to a broader sense to better understand the functioning of the tree-fungal fungi and microorganisms holobiont.
Functional analysis of RXLR effectors from the New Zealand kauri dieback pathogen Phytophthora agathidicida
TLDR
Results show that RXLRs of a pathogen of gymnosperms can interact with the immune system of an angiosperm species, providing an important foundation for studying the molecular basis of plant–pathogen interactions in gymnosperm forest trees, including kauri.

Effector-assisted breeding for bacterial wilt resistance in horticultural crops
TLDR
It is suggested that a phylotype-specific effector-assisted breeding program be instituted to rapidly identify disease resistance genes in available plant germplasm collections and stacking multiple NLRs that recognize Rso effectors would provide durable disease resistance by minimizing the chance for Rso to evade the implemented resistance.
Effectors as tools in disease resistance breeding against biotrophic, hemibiotrophic, and necrotrophic plant pathogens.
TLDR
An overview of how effector-assisted breeding and deployment is being exploited for various pathosystems is presented.
Suppression of Plant Resistance Gene-Based Immunity by a Fungal Effector
TLDR
It is shown that a plant-pathogenic fungus secretes an effector that can both trigger and suppress R gene-based immunity, which has revealed a hitherto unpredicted strategy for durable disease control based on resistance gene combinations.
Receptor networks underpin plant immunity
TLDR
The emerging paradigm is that dynamic webs of genetic and biochemical networks underpin the early stages of plant-pathogen interactions and help guide applied and basic research on disease resistance.
Recent Progress in RXLR Effector Research.
TLDR
Comparative genomics indicate that RXLR genes play a major role in virulence for Phytophthora and downy mildew species, and functional studies have demonstrated that suppression of host immunity is a major function for RXLR proteins.

Recent studies that indicate that HIGS is a valuable tool to protect wheat and barley from diseases in an environmentally friendly way are covered.
Production of small cysteine-rich effector proteins in Escherichia coli for structural and functional studies.
TLDR
This work presents a general scheme and methodology for the production and characterization of small cysteine-rich (SCR) effectors utilizing Escherichia coli expression systems, and successfully produced cysteINE-rich effectors derived from the biotrophic fungal pathogen Melampsora lini and the necrotrophic funGal pathogen Parastagonospora nodorum.
Transcriptomics-based screen for genes induced by flagellin and repressed by pathogen effectors identifies a cell wall-associated kinase involved in plant immunity
TLDR
A high-throughput screen is described, using RNA sequencing and virus-induced gene silencing, to identify tomato genes whose expression is enhanced by the flagellin microbe-associated molecular pattern flgII-28, but reduced by activities of the Pseudomonas syringae pv.
From Guard to Decoy: A New Model for Perception of Plant Pathogen Effectors
The Guard Model for disease resistance postulates that plant resistance proteins act by monitoring (guarding) the target of their corresponding pathogen effector. We posit, however, that guarded
Functional redundancy of necrotrophic effectors – consequences for exploitation for breeding
TLDR
It is concluded that the in vitro-secreted necrotrophic effectors explain a very large part of the disease response of wheat germplasm and that this method of resistance breeding promises to further reduce the impact of these globally significant diseases.
