Abstract

Plant responses to pathogenic invaders result from recognition of nonself elicitors. Host surveillance proteins activate distinct signaling pathways that induce partially overlapping defensive responses. Pathogen virulence is promoted by inhibition of these pathways. This evolutionary struggle has produced plant immune systems that rely on a continuum of layered defenses.
