    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract

Quantitative resistance (QR) refers to a resistance that is phenotypically incomplete and is based on the joined effect of several genes, each contributing quantitatively to the level of plant defense. Often, QR remains durably effective, which is the primary driver behind the interest in it. The various terms that are used to refer to QR, such as field resistance, adult plant resistance, and basal resistance, reflect the many properties attributed to it. In this article, we discuss aspects connected to those attributions, in particular the hypothesis that much of the QR to biotrophic filamentous pathogens is basal resistance, i.e., poor suppression of PAMP-triggered defense by effectors. We discuss what role effectors play in suppressing defense or improving access to nutrients. Based on the functions of the few plant proteins identified as involved in QR, vesicle trafficking and protein/metabolite transportation are likely to be common physiological processes relevant to QR.
