A productive NADP+ binding mode of ferredoxin–NADP + reductase revealed by protein engineering and crystallographic studies
The flavoenzyme ferredoxin–NADP+ reductase (FNR) catalyzes the production of NADPH during photosynthesis. Whereas the structures of FNRs from spinach leaf and a cyanobacterium as well as many ofExpand

Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri uses a plant natriuretic peptide-like protein to modify host homeostasis
Plant natriuretic peptides (PNPs) are a class of extracellular, systemically mobile molecules that elicit a number of plant responses important in homeostasis and growth. The bacterial citrusExpand

Xanthan is not essential for pathogenicity in citrus canker but contributes to Xanthomonas epiphytic survival
Xanthan-deficient mutants of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri, the bacterium responsible for citrus canker, were generated by deletion and marker exchange of the region encoding the carboxy-terminalExpand

The Monofunctional Catalase KatE of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri Is Required for Full Virulence in Citrus Plants
Background Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri (Xac) is an obligate aerobic phytopathogen constantly exposed to hydrogen peroxide produced by normal aerobic respiration and by the plant defense responseExpand

A Eukaryotic-Acquired Gene by a Biotrophic Phytopathogen Allows Prolonged Survival on the Host by Counteracting the Shut-Down of Plant Photosynthesis
Xanthomonas citri pv. citri, the bacteria responsible for citrus canker posses a biological active plant natriuretic peptide (PNP)-like protein, not present in any other bacteria. PNPs are a class ofExpand

Contribution of the FAD binding site residue tyrosine 308 to the stability of pea ferredoxin-NADP+ oxidoreductase.
The contribution made by tyrosine 308 to the stability of pea ferredoxin-NADP+ reductase was investigated using site-directed mutagenesis. The phenol side chain of the invariant carboxyl terminalExpand

Structural Analysis and Involvement in Plant Innate Immunity of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri Lipopolysaccharide*
Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri (Xac) causes citrus canker, provoking defoliation and premature fruit drop with concomitant economical damage. In plant pathogenic bacteria, lipopolysaccharides areExpand

The dual nature of trehalose in citrus canker disease: a virulence factor for Xanthomonas citri subsp. citri and a trigger for plant defence responses
Highlight: Trehalose is a double-edged sword for both partners in the citrus–Xanthomonas interaction, as it is necessary for bacterial survival but also triggers citrus defence responses.
