Figures and Tables from this paper

Plant-bacterium interactions analyzed by proteomics

The cross talk that plays important role in response to pathogens attack with different infection strategies using proteomic approaches is discussed.

Signaling in Plant-Microbe Interactions

In this review, the developments that have taken place in understanding the PTI, effectors function, ETI and downstream signaling events are discussed.

Plant immunity: a lesson from pathogenic bacterial effector proteins

This review focuses on how studies have conceptually advanced the understanding of plant–pathogen interactions and a variety of biochemical properties to directly attack key components of PAMP‐triggered immunity and effector‐trIGgered immunity are attacked.

Innate Immunity in Plants: An Arms Race Between Pattern Recognition Receptors in Plants and Effectors in Microbial Pathogens

It turns out that the important contribution of PTI to disease resistance is masked by pathogen virulence effectors that have evolved to suppress it.

Responses of Arabidopsis thaliana to challenge by Pseudomonas syringae.

This review will describe and discuss the plant immune responses induced by two types of elicitors, PAMPs and effector proteins.

Plant-bacterial pathogen interactions mediated by type III effectors.

Roles of small RNAs in plant disease resistance.

Recent advances in small RNA-mediated defense responses are reviewed and the challenging questions in this area are discussed, with a focus on the area of effector molecules.

Plants versus pathogens: an evolutionary arms race.

The evolution of the major types of plant defence responses including pathogen associated molecular patterns and effector triggered immunity as well as the forces driving pathogen evolution, such as the mechanisms by which pathogen lineages and species evolve are explored.

The plant immune system

A detailed understanding of plant immune function will underpin crop improvement for food, fibre and biofuels production and provide extraordinary insights into molecular recognition, cell biology and evolution across biological kingdoms.



Suppression of host defense in compatible plant-Pseudomonas syringae interactions.

Plant pathogens and integrated defence responses to infection

The current knowledge of recognition-dependent disease resistance in plants is reviewed, and a few crucial concepts are included to compare and contrast plant innate immunity with that more commonly associated with animals.

Interplay of signaling pathways in plant disease resistance.

Host-Parasite Coevolutionary Conflict Between Arabidopsis and Downy Mildew

Evidence of diversifying selection visible in both components suggests that the host and pathogen may be locked in a coevolutionary conflict at these loci, where attempts to evade host resistance by the pathogen are matched by the development of new detection capabilities by the host.

Mechanisms of plant resistance to viruses

These pathways function in concert to result in effective protection against virus infection in plants, and RNA silencing has gained prominence as an important cellular pathway for defence against foreign nucleic acids, including viruses.

New insights to the function of phytopathogenic bacterial type III effectors in plants.

New studies dissecting the molecular and biochemical action of TTSS effectors show that these proteins contribute to bacterial pathogenicity by interfering with plant defense signal transduction.

A family of conserved bacterial effectors inhibits salicylic acid-mediated basal immunity and promotes disease necrosis in plants.

The widespread conservation of the HopPtoM and AvrE families of effectors in various bacteria suggests that suppression of SA-dependent basal immunity and promotion of host cell death are important virulence strategies for bacterial infection of plants.

Molecular interactions between tomato and the leaf mold pathogen Cladosporium fulvum.

Current understanding of Cf-mediated responses in resistance to C. fulvum is reviewed, suggesting that defense response activation is mediated through interactions with other partners.

Activation of a Phytopathogenic Bacterial Effector Protein by a Eukaryotic Cyclophilin

AvrRpt2 was identified as a putative cysteine protease that results in the elimination of the Arabidopsis protein RIN4, which serves as a signal to activate RPS2-mediated resistance.
