摘      要:Mechanisms of surveillance by plants and counter-surveillance by microbes provide a fascinating framework for deciphering host-pathogen coevolution and identifying robust or vulnerable disease resistance nodes. Were studying plant host recognition of biotrophic pathogens and the processes by which intracellular (NLR) innate immunity receptors, sensing interference with host cells by pathogen-delivered effectors, transmit effector recognition to anti-microbial defense pathways. With Arabidopsis as our model host system weve been interrogating NLR homeostasis, activation and the nature of downstream signaling pathways leading to the stopping of pathogen infection. Were working to position NLR immunity branches within the broader environmental stress response network. Our studies highlight the importance of timing of host transcriptional reprogramming and steering of hormone pathways for effective pathogen resistance. Ill describe recent results and ideas on how plant innate immunity systems manage to be resilient against rapidly evolving microbial pathogens.
