Plant and Microbial Biology Seminar: "Roles of bacterial lipopolysaccharide in plant host colonisation: a structure-function study"

Seminar | April 15 | 12-1 p.m. | 101 Barker Hall

 Stefanie Ranf, Chair, Phytopathology, Technical University of Munich

 Department of Plant and Microbial Biology

Both, animals and plants sense invading pathogens through conserved microbe-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs), by specific host pattern-recognition receptors (PRRs) and trigger innate immune responses. Lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of gram-negative bacterial cell walls strongly activates several immune receptors in mammals. LPS also triggers immune defences in plants.
