How do plant defense responses ultimately limit the growth of bacterial pathogens? Using bacterial bioreporters that report on the water status of bacterial cells in planta, we have shown that the bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato experiences a rapid decrease in water availability following invasion of resistant Arabidopsis thaliana plants.
