To suppress plant defense responses and favor the establishment of disease, phytopathogenic bacteria have gained the ability to deliver effector molecules inside host cells through the type III secretion system. Inside plant cells, bacterial effector proteins may be addressed to different subcellular compartments where they are able to manipulate a variety of host cellular components and molecular functions. Here we review how the recent identification and functional characterization of plant components targeted by bacterial effectors, as well as the discovery of new pathogen recognition capabilities evolved in turn by plant cells, have significantly contributed to further our knowledge about the intricate molecular interactions that are established between plants and their invading bacteria....
