Abstract: In order to adapt to various living environments, plants have gradually evolved a complex immune system against the infections caused by pathogens. The nucleotide-bounding leucine-rich repeat proteins (NLRs) act as typical resistance (R) proteins which commonly exist in plants and play an important role in regulating plant disease resistance. In this paper, the research progress of NLRs is reviewed from the aspects of NLR protein structures, signal transductions and regulations of plant disease resistance.

Key words: NLR, plant immunity, resistance protein, signal transduction
