    Evolutionary transitions between beneficial and phytopathogenic Rhodococcus challenge disease management

    Elizabeth A Savory et al.
    The horizontal acquisition of virulence plasmids is potentiated by production practices in plant nurseries and is sufficient to transition Rhodococcus from being beneficial to being pathogenic.

    The CLAVATA receptor FASCIATED EAR2 responds to distinct CLE peptides by signaling through two downstream effectors

    Byoung Il Je et al.
    The maize CLAVATA receptor, FEA2, functions in the perception of two different ligands, and remarkably that signaling from these different inputs is differentiated by the receptor interacting with two different downstream components.

    BLADE-ON-PETIOLE proteins act in an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex to regulate PHYTOCHROME INTERACTING FACTOR 4 abundance

    Bo Zhang et al.
    The abundance of the PIF4 transcription factor, central in light and temperature signaling, is controlled by an E3 ligase encoded by BOP proteins.

    Plant immune and growth receptors share common signalling components but localise to distinct plasma membrane nanodomains

    Christoph A Bücherl et al.
    Although genetically and biochemically linked, the plant immune and growth receptors FLS2 and BRI1 form dispersed receptor clusters within the plasma membrane that are spatiotemporally separated.

    Autophagy functions as an antiviral mechanism against geminiviruses in plants

    Yakupjan Haxim et al.
    Plant autophagy contributes to antiviral defense against geminiviruses by targeting one or more viral proteins for degradation.

    Geminivirus-encoded TrAP suppressor inhibits the histone methyltransferase SUVH4/KYP to counter host defense

    Claudia Castillo-González et al.
    A viral protein hijacks the key effector of transcriptional gene silencing, Su(var)3-9, to evade host plant surveillance.

    Structural basis of pathogen recognition by an integrated HMA domain in a plant NLR immune receptor

    A Maqbool et al.
    Structure/function studies of a plant pathogen effector in complex with a host disease resistance protein domain reveal the molecular basis for recognition and underpin future engineering of immunity in crops.

    The kinase LYK5 is a major chitin receptor in Arabidopsis and forms a chitin-induced complex with related kinase CERK1

    Yangrong Cao et al.
    The chitin-triggered immune response is mediated by a LYK5 and CERK1 receptor complex in Arabidopsis.

    Prioritizing plant defence over growth through WRKY regulation facilitates infestation by non-target herbivores

    Ran Li et al.
    A chewing herbivore induced WRKY transcription factor induces jasmonate-dependent defences and supresses gibbererellin-dependent growth, the latter of which renders rice plants more susceptible to secondary infestation by a piercing-sucking herbivore.

    Irreversible fate commitment in the Arabidopsis stomatal lineage requires a FAMA and RETINOBLASTOMA-RELATED module

    Juliana L Matos et al.
    An adult stem-cell lineage terminally differentiates via recruitment of the RETINOBLASTOMA-RELATED protein by a lineage specific transcription factor.
