Basal Defence in Arabidopsis Against Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola: Beyond FLS2?
We have developed a system to use natural variation between Arabidopsis ecotypes to study the basis of non-host/basal resistance. Our experiments suggest that the leucine rich repeat receptor kinase FLS2 and the flagellin perception system are at the core of this resistance mechanism. However, several genes/loci work in concert with FLS2 to specify non-host resistance in Arabidopsis to P.s. pv. phaseolicola race 6 1448A.
