Recent findings demonstrate that cytoplasmic effectors from fungal and oomycetepathogens enter plant cells via clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME). This raisesseveral questions: Does effector secretion pathway facilitate host uptake? How is CMEtriggered in host cells? How are the effectors released from endosomal compartmentsto reach diverse subcellular destinations?
