Innate immunity in plants

Innate immunity in plants Studies of receptors and signal-transduction components that play a role in plant disease resistance have revealed remarkable similarities with innate immunity pathways in insects and mammals. In plants, specific receptors encoded by disease-resistance genes interact with products of microbial effector genes to activate defence responses. Resistance proteins have been found to have motifs in common with components of immune response pathways in mammals and invertebrates, and to rely on similar downstream signalling components. In the future, the sharing of ideas among plant and animal biologists is likely to broaden our understanding of defence responses in diverse organisms. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Opinion in Immunology Elsevier

Abstract

Studies of receptors and signal-transduction components that play a role in plant disease resistance have revealed remarkable similarities with innate immunity pathways in insects and mammals. In plants, specific receptors encoded by disease-resistance genes interact with products of microbial effector genes to activate defence responses. Resistance proteins have been found to have motifs in common with components of immune response pathways in mammals and invertebrates, and to rely on similar downstream signalling components. In the future, the sharing of ideas among plant and animal biologists is likely to broaden our understanding of defence responses in diverse organisms.
