The changing of the guard: The Pto/Prf receptor complex of tomato and pathogen recognition

Ntoukakis, Vardis; Saur, Isabel; Conlan, Brendon; Rathjen, John


One important model for disease resistance is the Prf recognition complex of tomato, which responds to different bacterial effectors. Prf incorporates a protein kinase called Pto as its recognition domain that mimics effector virulence targets, and activates resistance after interaction with specific effectors. Recent findings show that this complex is oligomeric, and reveal how this impacts mechanism. Oligomerisation brings two or more kinases into proximity, where they can phosphorylate each...[Show more]
