Plant Microbe Interface: The Plant Antimicrobial Peptides
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are known to play important roles in plant development and stress tolerance. The AMPs are involved in the defense reaction of innate plant immunity and are known to increase the transcription level in response to abiotic or biotic stress factors. There are numerous reports available on the structure and the in vitro efficiency of antimicrobial peptides against phytopathogens. This chapter provides the available pipelines to identify the plant AMPs and its role in mediating the defense in plants in particular.
