Animal NLRs provide structural insights into plant NLR function

Bentham, Adam; Burdett, Hayden; Anderson, Peter A; Williams, Simon; Kobe, Bostjan


Background The plant immune system employs intracellular NLRs (nucleotide binding [NB], leucine-rich repeat [LRR]/nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain [NOD]-like receptors) to detect effector proteins secreted into the plant cell by potential pathogens. Activated plant NLRs trigger a range of immune responses, collectively known as the hypersensitive response (HR), which culminates in death of the infected cell. Plant NLRs show structural and functional resemblance to animal NLRs...[Show more]
