Plants employ extracellular immune receptors to perceive conserved pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs), triggering the first layer of defense known as pattern-triggered immunity (PTI). The understanding of PTI is mainly based on studies focusing on leaves. Plants are vulnerable to attack by various root pathogens including plant-parasitic… CONTINUE READING
