What is it about?

The paper identifies a sugar-transferring enzyme (UDP-glucosyltransferase) as an important component of the broadest-spectrum disease resistance response in plants.

Why is it important?

The work may help engineering or breeding crops with durable disease resistance. It also supports our understanding of the overall plant immune response.
