Summary
In plants, resistance to a pathogen is frequently corre-
lated with a genetically defined interaction between a
plant resistance gene and a corresponding pathogen
avirulence gene. A simple model explains these gene-
for-gene interactions: avirulence gene products gen-
erate signals (iigands), and resistance genes encode
cognate receptors. The A. thaliana RPSP gene confers
resistance to the bacterial pathogen P. syringae car-
