10. Understanding root rot disease in agricultural crops.

Root rot diseases remain a major global threat to the productivity of agricultural crops. They are usually caused by more than one type of pathogen and are thus often referred to as a root rot complex. Fungal and oomycete species are the predominant participants in the complex, while bacteria and...

11. The ETS-ETI cycle: evolutionary processes and metapopulation dynamics driving the diversification of pathogen effectors and host immune factors.

The natural diversity of pathogen effectors and host immune components represents a snapshot of the underlying evolutionary processes driving the host-pathogen arms race. In plants, this arms race is manifested by an ongoing cycle of disease and resistance driven by pathogenic effectors that...

12. PTI-ETI crosstalk: an integrative view of plant immunity.

Plants resist attacks by pathogens via innate immune responses, which are initiated by cell surface-localized pattern-recognition receptors (PRRs) and intracellular nucleotide-binding domain leucine-rich repeat containing receptors (NLRs) leading to pattern-triggered immunity (PTI) and...

14. EDS1 signalling: at the nexus of intracellular and surface receptor immunity.

The conserved lipase-like protein EDS1 transduces signals from pathogen-activated intracellular nucleotide-binding leucine-rich repeat (NLR) receptors to transcriptional defences and host cell death. In this pivotal NLR signalling role, EDS1 works as a heterodimer with each of its partners, SAG101...

16. Tactics of host manipulation by intracellular effectors from plant pathogenic fungi.

Fungal pathogens can secrete hundreds of effectors, some of which are known to promote host susceptibility. This biological complexity, together with the lack of genetic tools in some fungi, presents a substantial challenge to develop a broad picture of the mechanisms these pathogens use for host...

18. A playbook for developing disease-resistant crops through immune receptor identification and transfer.

Plants are resistant to most pathogens because of an immune system that perceives invading microbes and activates defense. A large repertoire of innate immune receptors mediates specific direct or indirect recognition of pathogen-derived molecules. Disease is often a consequence of insufficient...
