Arabidopsis EF-Tu receptor enhances bacterial disease resistance in transgenic wheat.
TLDR
It is shown that transgenic expression of AtEFR in wheat confers recognition of elf18, as measured by the induction of immune marker genes and callose deposition, and can be transferred successfully from dicot to monocot species, further revealing that immune signalling pathways are conserved across these distant phyla.
Two distinct EF-Tu epitopes induce immune responses in rice and Arabidopsis.
TLDR
It is shown that elongation factor Tu (EF-Tu), one of the most abundant bacterial proteins, acts as a PAMP in rice and causes severalPTI responses, and that EFa50, which is distinct from elf18, induces PTI responses.
Transgenic expression of the dicotyledonous pattern recognition receptor EFR in rice leads to ligand-dependent activation of defense responses
TLDR
The successful transfer of an immune receptor from a species in the mustard family, called EFR, to rice is shown, and under laboratory conditions, this leads to an enhanced resistance response to two weakly virulent isolates of an economically important bacterial disease of rice.
Transgenic Expression of the Dicotyledonous Pattern Recognition Receptor EFR in Rice Leads to Ligand-Dependent Activation of Defense Responses
TLDR
It is shown that rice plants expressing EFR or the chimeric receptor EFR::XA21, containing the EFR ectodomain and the XA21 intracellular domain, sense both Escherichia coli- and Xanthomonas oryzae pv.oryzae (Xoo)-derived elf18 peptides at sub-nanomolar concentrations.
Heterologous expression of the immune receptor EFR in Medicago truncatula reduces pathogenic infection, but not rhizobial symbiosis
TLDR
The results indicate that Rhizobium can either avoid PAMP recognition during the infection process, or is able to actively suppress immune signaling, and a legume engineered with a novel PRR recognizing a conserved bacterial protein becomes more resistant to an important bacterial pathogen.
The EF-Tu epitope elf26 of Ralstonia solanacearum can promote resistance to bacterial wilt disease in Nicotiana species
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the R. solanacearum elf26 epitope functions as a PAMP and can promote resistance to bacterial wilt disease in Nicotiana spp.
A flagellin-induced complex of the receptor FLS2 and BAK1 initiates plant defence
TLDR
BAK1 is shown to have a functional role in PRR-dependent signalling, which initiates innate immunity, and evidence is provided that FLS2 and BAK1 form a complex in vivo, in a specific ligand-dependent manner, within the first minutes of stimulation with flagellin.
Arabidopsis thaliana Pattern Recognition Receptors for Bacterial Elongation Factor Tu and Flagellin Can Be Combined to Form Functional Chimeric Receptors*
TLDR
Chimeric receptors allow mapping of subdomains relevant for ligand binding and receptor activation and show that modular assembly of chimeras from different receptors can be used to form functional receptors.
Enhancement of innate immune system in monocot rice by transferring the dicotyledonous elongation factor Tu receptor EFR.
TLDR
Results indicate that the rice plants with heterologous expression of AtEFR recognize bacterial EF-Tu and exhibit enhanced broad-spectrum bacterial disease resistance and that pattern recognition receptor-mediated immunity may be manipulated across the two plant classes, dicots and monocots.

Bacterial disease resistance in Arabidopsis through flagellin perception
TLDR
It is shown that treatment of plants with flg22, a peptide representing the elicitor-active epitope of flagellin, induces the expression of numerous defence-related genes and triggers resistance to pathogenic bacteria in wild-type plants, but not in plants carrying mutations in the flageLLin receptor gene FLS2.
The N Terminus of Bacterial Elongation Factor Tu Elicits Innate Immunity in Arabidopsis Plants
TLDR
It is shown that elongation factor Tu, the most abundant bacterial protein, acts as a PAMP in Arabidopsis thaliana and other Brassicaceae, and an N-acetylated peptide comprising the first 18 amino acids, termed elf18, is fully active as inducer of defense responses.
Sensitivity of Different Ecotypes and Mutants ofArabidopsis thaliana toward the Bacterial Elicitor Flagellin Correlates with the Presence of Receptor-binding Sites*
TLDR
Data indicate that the formation of functional receptor-binding sites depends on genes encoded by both loci,FLS1 and FLS2, and strong evidence is provided that this binding site acts as the physiological receptor of flagellin.
The Arabidopsis Receptor Kinase FLS2 Binds flg22 and Determines the Specificity of Flagellin Perception[W]
TLDR
Results show that FLS2 constitutes the pattern-recognition receptor that determines the specificity of flagellin perception and is demonstrated by chemical cross-linking and immunoprecipitation.
Recognition and response in the plant immune system.
TLDR
Transduction of recognition probably requires regulated protein degradation and results in massive changes in cellular homeostasis, including a programmed cell death known as the hypersensitive response that indicates a successful, if perhaps over-zealous, disease resistance response.
The Receptor for the Fungal Elicitor Ethylene-Inducing Xylanase Is a Member of a Resistance-Like Gene Family in Tomato
TLDR
Structural analysis of the LeEix proteins suggests that they belong to a class of cell-surface glycoproteins with a signal for receptor-mediated endocytosis, suggesting that endocyTosis plays a key role in the signal transduction pathway.
Disabling surveillance: bacterial type III secretion system effectors that suppress innate immunity
TLDR
Type III effectors can suppress signal transduction pathways activated by PRR surveillance systems, which will reveal much about bacterial pathogenicity and the innate immune system in plants and animals.
