Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola (Xoc) causes bacterial leaf streak in rice, which is a destructive disease worldwide. Xoc virulence factors are regulated by diffusible signal factor (DSF) and the global regulator Clp. In this study, we have demonstrated that asnB (XOC_3054), encoding an asparagine synthetase, is a novel virulence-related gene regulated by(More)
Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae, an economically important bacterium, causes a serious disease in rice production worldwide called bacterial leaf blight. How X. oryzae pv. oryzae infects rice and causes symptoms remains incompletely understood. Our earlier works demonstrated that the twin-arginine translocation (Tat) pathway plays an vital role in X. oryzae(More)
Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola and X. oryzae pv. oryzae are two pathovars of X. oryzae that cause leaf streak and blight in rice, respectively. These two bacterial pathogens cause different disease symptoms by utilizing different infection sites on rice. Compared with X. oryzae pv. oryzae, the molecular virulence mechanism of X. oryzae pv. oryzicola(More)
