Pathogen avirulence genes encode for effector molecules that play a crucial role in the process of pathogen colonization of plant tissue. Successful host defense requires rapid and efficient detection of the pathogen avirulence factors. In the last few years, much progress has been made in delineating the plant molecular sentinels that participate in… CONTINUE READING
