Common Themes Both plants and animals need to be able to distinguish between their own tissues and the cells and tissues of an invading pathogen. Across kingdoms there exists a range of pattern recognition systems that have become integral to the evolution of innate immune responses. Ronald and Beutler (p. 1061) synthesize recent intellectual progress to bring insights into shared features of animal immunology and plant pathology. The last common ancestor of plants and animals may have lived 1… Expand

Topics from this paper

Intracellular innate immune surveillance devices in plants and animals
TLDR
It is proposed that NLRs evolved for pathogen-sensing in diverse organisms because the flexible protein domain architecture surrounding the NB-ARC and NACHT domains facilitates evolution of “hair trigger” switches, into which a virtually limitless number of microbial detection platforms can be integrated. Expand
Receptors and Signaling Pathways for Recognition of Bacteria in Livestock and Crops: Prospects for Beneficial Microbes in Healthy Growth Strategies
TLDR
Current knowledge about the molecular mechanisms involved in the recognition of pathogenic and commensal microbes by the innate immune systems of animal and plants are reviewed, highlighting their differences and similarities. Expand
Roles of small RNAs in plant disease resistance.
TLDR
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. Expand
A Synopsis of Different Plant LRR-RLKs Structures and Functionality
TLDR
The first line of the plant defense mechanism is referred to as pattern-triggered immunity (PTI), which detects pathogen-associated molecular patterns and initiates signaling cascades via the mitogenactivated protein kinase (MAPK). Expand
The Rice Xa21 Immune Receptor Recognizes a Novel Bacterial Quorum Sensing Factor
TLDR
During the course of evolution, plants and animals have acquired the capability to perceive microbes and respond with robust defense responses and the causal role of microorganisms in animal diseases was demonstrated by Koch (1876), who studied anthrax in cattle, using the mouse as a model host. Expand
Diversity and Evolution of Type III Secreted Effectors: A Case Study of Three Families.
TLDR
This chapter aims to highlight the diversity within these three effector families that results from the strong and dynamic evolutionary forces shaping the interface between host and bacterium. Expand
Molecular sensors for plant immunity; pattern recognition receptors and race-specific resistance proteins
TLDR
This review introduces the classes and functions of pattern recognition receptors that were molecularly identified so far and summarizes recent progresses in structural functions and molecular dynamics of the plant disease resistance proteins. Expand
Role of Plant Immune Signals and Signaling Systems in Plant Pathogenesis
TLDR
The effectors secreted by various pathogens have been shown to suppress the PAMP-triggered immunity, which contributes to virulence of pathogens by targeting host plant innate immunity. Expand
Plant innate immunity: perception of conserved microbial signatures.
TLDR
In plants, coregulatory receptor kinases have been identified that not only are critical for the innate immune response but also serve an essential function in other regulatory signaling pathways. Expand
Highly Dynamic Exon Shuffling in Candidate Pathogen Receptors … What if Brown Algae Were Capable of Adaptive Immunity?
TLDR
The Ectocarpus ROCO and NB-ARC–TPR families are excellent candidates for being involved in recognition/transduction events linked to immunity, and it is hypothesized that brown algae may generate their immune repertoire via controlled somatic recombination. Expand

Are innate immune signaling pathways in plants and animals conserved?
TLDR
Data suggest that the seemingly analogous regulatory modules used in plant and animal innate immunity are a consequence of convergent evolution and reflect inherent constraints on how an innate immune system can be constructed. Expand
Innate Immunity in Plants: An Arms Race Between Pattern Recognition Receptors in Plants and Effectors in Microbial Pathogens
TLDR
It turns out that the important contribution of PTI to disease resistance is masked by pathogen virulence effectors that have evolved to suppress it. Expand
Plant and Animal Pathogen Recognition Receptors Signal through Non-RD Kinases
TLDR
It is found that kinases associated with PRRs can largely be predicted by the lack of a single conserved residue and reveal new potential plant PRR subfamilies. Expand
The Drosophila systemic immune response: sensing and signalling during bacterial and fungal infections
TLDR
The striking parallels between the adult fly response and mammalian innate immune defences described below point to a common ancestry and validate the relevance of the fly defence as a paradigm for innate immunity. Expand
TLRs and innate immunity.
TLDR
What has been learned about the Toll-like receptors, which play an essential part in the perception of microbes and shape the complex host responses that occur during infection, are described. Expand
A Type I–Secreted, Sulfated Peptide Triggers XA21-Mediated Innate Immunity
TLDR
Liquid chromatography–tandem mass spectrometry analysis of biologically active fractions from Xoo supernatants led to the identification of a 194–amino acid protein designated Ax21 (activator of XA21-mediated immunity), confirming that Ax21 is a pathogen-associated molecular pattern and that XA 21 is a pattern recognition receptor.

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.

TLDR
This review summarizes current knowledge of the biology of this fascinating group of molecules and classified them as a new family of virulence factors able to modulate the Toll-like receptor signaling cascade. Expand
The innate immune response to bacterial flagellin is mediated by Toll-like receptor 5
TLDR
It is reported that mammalian TLR5 recognizes bacterial flagellin from both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and that activation of the receptor mobilizes the nuclear factor NF-κB and stimulates tumour necrosis factor-α production, and the data suggest thatTLR5, a member of the evolutionarily conserved Toll-like receptor family, has evolved to permit mammals specifically to detect flageLLated bacterial pathogens.

The Evolution of Adaptive Immune Systems
TLDR
The convergent evolution of these remarkably different adaptive immune systems involved innovative genetic modification of innate-immune-system components. Expand
