Structure-Function Similarities between a Plant Receptor-Like Kinase and the Human Interleukin-1 Receptor-Associated Kinase-4

Phylogenetic analysis has previously shown that plant receptor-like-kinases (RLKs) are monophyletic with respect to the kinase domain and share an...

A nuclear cameleon reveals Ca2+ spiking in the legume and non- legume root epidermis in response to both arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal contact and the application of germinated spore exudates

Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi are the most widespread mutualistic symbionts of terrestrial plants and provide their hosts with valuable soil ...

The Xanthomonas type III effector XopD targets the Arabidopsis transcription factor AtMYB30 to suppress plant defence

Plant and animal pathogens inject type III effectors ( T3Es) into host cells to suppress host immunity and promote successful infection. XopD, a T3E...

Nucleo-cytoplasmic basal resistance regulator EDS1 connects pathogen effector recognition to cell compartment-specific immune responses

Bacterial typeIII effectors are recognized by plant intracellular nucleotide binding–leucine-rich repeat (NB-LRR) receptors. So far, processes...
