Resistance proteins are the most effective weapons of plants against pathogen invasion since they can recognize the corresponding pathogen effectors or associated proteins to activate plant immune response. Up to date, greater than seventy resistance proteins have been identified from different plant species. Most resistance proteins contain conserved domains such as the nucleotide-binding sites, the leucine-rich repeat, the coiled-coil domain and others. These domains play significant roles in resistance proteins interaction with effector proteins from pathogens and inactivating signals involved in innate immunity. This review highlights illuminating the structure and function of the isolated plant resistance proteins in different plant-pathogen interaction systems.
