PLANT IMMUNITY

Deceiving the chaperone

Article metrics

Heat-shock protein 90 (HSP90) chaperones play an essential role in plant defence by assisting the folding of client proteins needed for immunity. A newly identified bacterial effector promotes disease by mimicking a HSP90 client, functioning as a minimal kinase that phosphorylates and inactivates the chaperone.
