Cell Host & Microbe - Positive Gene Regulation

Cell Host & Microbe - Positive Gene Regulation by a Natural Protective miRNA Enables Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Symbiosis

Arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis, a plant-fungal mutualistic relationship, is regulated by the miR171 family. Couzigou et al. discover that miR171b...

Cell Host & Microbe - The Decoy Substrate of a Pathogen Effector

Cell Host & Microbe - The Decoy Substrate of a Pathogen Effector and a Pseudokinase Specify Pathogen-Induced Modified- Self Recognition and Immunity in Plants

A plant pathogen effector, AvrAC, uridylylates a host kinase to promote virulence. Wang et al. find that plants have evolved a decoy substrate which...
