Part of the Progress in Botany book series (BOTANY, volume 61)


Are plants stacked neutrophils? Curious question, one might think. However, after reading some up-to-date reviews on the topic of plant pathogen defense the idea becomes inescapable. In literature, on journal covers [e.g., Plant & Cell Physiol 38 (10), 1997], in congress presentations and, we fear, also in the minds of scientists, the NADPH oxidase complex known from neutrophil phagolysosomes has been transplanted, complete with all its regulatory components, to the plasma membrane (PM) of plants. In other words, the plant defense system is proposed to be a clone of the mammalian’s oxidative burst.
