Plants have evolved in an environment rich with microorganisms that are eager to capitalize on the plants' biosynthetic and energy-producing capabilities. There are approximately 450 species of plant-pathogenic viruses, which cause a range of diseases. However, plants have not been passive in the face of these assaults, but have developed elaborate and effective defence mechanisms to prevent, or limit, damage owing to viral infection. Plant resistance genes confer resistance to various… Expand
Plant Resistance to Infection by Viruses
TLDR
Current knowledge about the defence mechanisms that prevent or limit viral infection in plants are summarized and the likely collaboration of these different antiviral strategies insuring the resistance of the whole plant is discussed. Expand
Mechanisms of Plant Tolerance to RNA Viruses Induced by Plant-Growth-Promoting Microorganisms
TLDR
The importance of the search for endophytes with protease and RNase activity combined with the capacity to prime antiviral plant defense responses for their protection against viruses is shown. Expand
Plant Virus Interaction: Layers of Plant Antiviral Immunity
TLDR
Three layers of antiviral immunity are reviewed and they work together to establish a defense against the virus. Expand
Plant signal transduction and defense against viral pathogens.
TLDR
This review aims to document the advances that have improved the understanding of plant resistance to viruses and shows that different host factors may play a role in resistance to different viral pathogens. Expand
The genetic and molecular basis of plant resistance to pathogens.
TLDR
An update on genetic and molecular aspects of plant resistance to pathogens is provided, related to the molecular basis underlying host-pathogen interactions. Expand
Mechanisms of systemic induced resistance
TLDR
Systemic induced resistance (SIR) is induced resistance wherein plant defenses are preconditioned by prior infection or treatment that results in resistance against subsequent challenge by a pathogen or parasite. Expand
Susceptibility Genes to Plant Viruses
TLDR
Current advances in the identification and characterization of host factors that condition susceptibility to plant viruses are reviewed to identify factors that could be targets of gene editing to engineer resistance to Plant viruses. Expand
How do plant viruses induce disease? Interactions and interference with host components.
TLDR
This review provides an update on the latest advances in understanding how viruses affect substantial cellular processes, and how plant antiviral defences contribute to pathological phenotypes. Expand
The Tug-of-War between Plants and Viruses: Great Progress and Many Remaining Questions
TLDR
In this review, the cutting edge of knowledge concerning the defense and counter-defense between plants and viruses is summarized, and the unexploited areas that are especially worth investigating in the near future are highlighted. Expand
Recent advances and emerging trends in antiviral defense networking in rice
TLDR
A variety of rice antiviral molecular mechanisms are discussed, including those based on R genes and recessive resistance, RNA silencing, phytohormone signaling, autophagy and WUS-mediated antiviral immunity. Expand

The role and regulation of programmed cell death in plant–pathogen interactions
TLDR
Recent progress is reviewed in determining the role and regulation of plant pcd responses that accompany both resistance and susceptible interactions and the mechanisms by which plant pCD occurs during these different interactions. Expand
Understanding the functions of plant disease resistance proteins.
Many disease resistance (R) proteins of plants detect the presence of disease-causing bacteria, viruses, or fungi by recognizing specific pathogen effector molecules that are produced during theExpand

TLDR
Current knowledge of molecular, biochemical and physiological mechanisms that are associated with systemic acquired resistance (SAR) are reviewed. Expand
Resistance gene signaling in plants--complex similarities to animal innate immunity.
TLDR
There are many emerging parallels between the plant R genes and animal innate immunity receptor complexes, and many receptor-like R gene products appear to interact indirectly with their pathogen-derived signal. Expand
Suppression of gene silencing: a general strategy used by diverse DNA and RNA viruses of plants.
TLDR
Results suggest that virus-encoded suppressors of gene silencing have distinct modes of action, are targeted against distinct components of the host gene-silencing machinery, and that there is dynamic evolution of theHost and viral components associated with the gene- silencing mechanism. Expand
Salicylic Acid Is Not the Translocated Signal Responsible for Inducing Systemic Acquired Resistance but Is Required in Signal Transduction.
TLDR
Transgenic tobacco root-stocks were shown to be fully capable of delivering a signal that renders nontransgenic scions resistant to further pathogen infection, indicating that the translocating, SAR-inducing signal is not SA. Expand
The potyviral suppressor of RNA silencing confers enhanced resistance to multiple pathogens.
TLDR
HC-Pro-expressing plants are more resistant to tomato black ring nepovirus and to the oomycete Peronospora tabacina and Enhanced TBRV resistance is SA-independent, whereas the response to P.tabacina is associated with early induction of markers characteristic of SA-dependent defense. Expand
A similarity between viral defense and gene silencing in plants.
TLDR
It was found that nepovirus infection of nontransgenic plants induces a resistance mechanism that is similar to transgene-induced gene silencing. Expand
Nitric oxide functions as a signal in plant disease resistance
TLDR
It is shown that nitric oxide potentiates the induction of hypersensitive cell death in soybean cells by reactive oxygen intermediates and functions independently of such intermediates to induce genes for the synthesis of protective natural products. Expand
A Viral Movement Protein Prevents Spread of the Gene Silencing Signal in Nicotiana benthamiana
TLDR
It is demonstrated with potato virus X (PVX) that PTGS operates as a systemic, sequence-specific defense system, but in grafting experiments or with movement defective forms of PVX, it could not detect systemic silencing unless the 25 kDa viral movement protein (p25) was made nonfunctional. Expand
