Abstract
Under the peaceful appearance of lovely green meadow, the different plant communities are engaged in a continuous struggle for life. Plants use every imaginable mechanism to enhance their defenses in order to survive attacks from an enormous number of pathogens. Plant innate immunity strongly relies on signal transduction pathways connecting pathogen recognition with the establishment of specific defense responses. Heterotrimeric and small GTP-binding proteins provide such signaling between plasma membrane receptors and cytoplasm localized effector molecules. Recent studies, mostly in Arabidopsis and rice, have revealed very important roles for G proteins in plant resistance to fungal pathogens. Experimental evidence implicating G proteins in plant innate immunity and putative signaling mechanisms is presented and discussed in this chapter.
