  • Plants are sessile organisms and need to respond quickly to environmental stresses. The innate immune system of plants allows sensing the presence of pathogens, resulting in a defence response that prevents infection. Elicitors produced by the pathogen are specifically recognized by host-encoded receptorlike resistance (R) proteins. The R_protein Cf-4 from tomato is responsible for the recognition of the Avr4 protein elicitor produced by the leaf mold fungus Cladosporium fulvum. The receptor… CONTINUE READING
