Access to the article is free, however registration and sign-in are required. Plant defense responses known as PAMP-triggered immunity (PTI) begin when the plant is exposed to microbial elicitors named pathogen- or microbe-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs or MAMPs). Recent studies provide an elegant explanation for the difficulty of demonstrating the role of PTI in plant disease resistance. It turns out that the important contribution of PTI to disease resistance is masked by pathogen virulence effectors that have evolved to suppress it.
