Abstract: Reversible protein phosphorylation is a common mechanism regulating plant signaling pathways. Phosphorylation of key components in plant-pathogen interactions affects the activation of defense signaling. Many pathogens attack the plant immune system and enhance pathogenic toxicity by disturbing the phosphorylation status of defense regulators. In this review, we summarize the phosphorylation of regulators in plant defense responses and its regulating effect in plant immunity. Understanding the phosphorylation of key regulators in the plant-pathogen interaction may help to explore new mechanism of plant immune regulation. This review may provide support and a basis for studying new approaches of broad-spectrum disease resistance.

Key words: protein phosphorylation, protein kinase, protein phosphatase, plant-pathogen interaction
