AvrPtoB Targets the LysM Receptor Kinase CERK1 to Promote Bacterial Virulence on Plants

Gimenez-Ibanez, Selena; Hann, Dagmar R; Ntoukakis, Vardis; Petutschnig, Elena; Lipka, Volker; Rathjen, John


Plant innate immunity relies on a set of pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) that respond to ligands known as pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) [1-3]. To overcome such immunity, phytopathogenic bacteria deliver virulence molecules called effector proteins into the plant cell that collectively promote pathogenesis [4-7]. The vast majority of PRRs controlling PAMP-triggered immunity (PTI) and the mechanisms used by specific effectors to suppress these pathways are mostly unknown....[Show more]
