Plants constitute an ample source of nutrients for a diversity of organisms that include viruses, microbes, nematodes, insects and mites. To protect their resources, plants possess a robust immune system that establishes structural and biochemical defenses to fight invaders. Many successful plant parasites manipulate the regulation of their host inducible defenses and often do so by employing specialised secreted proteins that sabotage the plant immunity network. Carlos Villarroel reports on the discovery of a group of weapons, called ‘effectors’, which are deployed by spider mites to deal with plant defenses.
