Battle of the Pleiades against plant immunity

Mythological nymphs reincarnate as a group of corn smut proteins to launch a battle on maize immunity. One of these proteins appears to stand out among its sister Pleiades, much like its namesake character in Greek mythology. The research carried out at GMI – Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences – is published in the journal PLOS Pathogens.
