A rapid production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) represents a hallmark of plant immune responses to infection. However, how pathogen perception induces ROS production remains unclear. Li et al. (2014) fill a missing link by showing that a pattern recognition receptor complex directly associates with and activates a ROS-producing enzyme.
