A growing body of evidence indicates that elicitation of primary active defense responses results from a recognition event frequently involving protein-protein interactions. Most pathogen avirulence determinants eliciting resistance gene-dependent responses have been shown to be proteins with no apparent enzymic activity. Disruption of the tertiary and quaternary structure of these proteins abolishes their elicitor activity. Critical to their elicitor activity is their display by the pathogen… CONTINUE READING
