Plant innate immunity is activated either upon perception of pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) by pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) or upon resistance (R) protein-mediated recognition of pathogen race-specific effector molecules. Although many plant R proteins have been identified, there is only limited knowledge about plant PRRs. Recently, Cyril Zipfel et al. identified a second Arabidopsis leucine-rich repeat receptor protein kinase implicated in PAMP perception, which… CONTINUE READING
