Abstract

In the past year, most of the advances in our understanding of nonhost resistance to plant pathogens have been incremental. Highlights include the discovery of a general bacterial elicitor of plant defenses, the description of more similarities between the hypersensitive response and animal programmed cell death, and a growing appreciation of the cell wall as the site of initiation and expression of nonhost resistance towards fungi.
