Abstract

Plant effector-triggered immunity is a robust cellular defense response activated by a family of intracellular receptors. In this issue of Cell Host & Microbe, Wang et al. (2014) show that receptor-activated defense pathways utilize several core cell-cycle regulatory components to induce resistance and programmed cell death against pathogens.
