Plants are surrounded and infected by a diverse array of beneficial and pathogenic bacteria. To survive in this diverse environment, Plants employ multiple layers of sophisticated detection systems to distinguish pathogenic bacteria from beneficial bacteria and rapidly respond before these pathogens have a chance to cause serious damage to the plants. The most common and widely studied plant recognition involves the first line detection of pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMP) s or endogenous signals released after attack, so called danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMP) s via host pattern‐recognition receptors (PRRs). Recognition of the pathogen by the host defense machinery has been studied using biochemical and genetic approaches and the paper reviews the molecular basis of the common recognition used by plants to perceive pathogenic bacterial attacks and how the hosts initiate efficient defense responses against its specific pathogens.

Key Words: Pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMP), Pattern‐recognition receptors (PRR), Nucleotide binding leucine-rich repeat (NLR) proteins, Effectors, Plant innate immunity.
