Flagellin glycosylation island in Pseudomonas syringae pv. glycinea and its role in host specificity.
The deduced amino acid sequences of the flagellins of Pseudomonas syringae pv. tabaci and P. syringae pv. glycinea are identical; however, their abilities to induce a hypersensitive reaction areExpand

Amino acid sequence of bacterial microbe-associated molecular pattern flg22 is required for virulence.
Flagellin proteins derived from Pseudomonas syringae pv. tabaci 6605 and flg22Pa (QRLSTGSRINSAKDDAAGLQIA), one of the microbe-associated molecular patterns (MAMP) in bacterial flagellin, induce cellExpand

The siderophore pyoverdine of Pseudomonas syringae pv. tabaci 6605 is an intrinsic virulence factor in host tobacco infection.
To investigate the role of iron uptake mediated by the siderophore pyoverdine in the virulence of the plant pathogen Pseudomonas syringae pv. tabaci 6605, three predicted pyoverdine synthesis-relatedExpand

Effect of methyl jasmonate on harpin-induced hypersensitive cell death, generation of hydrogen peroxide and expression of PAL mRNA in tobacco suspension cultured BY-2 cells.
Methyl jasmonate inhibited the harpin-induced defense responses such as cell death, H2O2 generation and gene expression encoding phenylalanine ammonia-lyase in tobacco suspension cultured BY-2 cells.Expand

Modulation of defense signal transduction by flagellin-induced WRKY41 transcription factor in Arabidopsis thaliana
Flagellin, a component of the flagellar filament of Pseudomonas syringae pv. tabaci 6605 (Pta), induces hypersensitive reaction in its non-host Arabidopsis thaliana. We identified the WRKY41 gene,Expand

cDNA cloning and characterization of tobacco ABC transporter: NtPDR1 is a novel elicitor-responsive gene.
We isolated an INF1 elicitin-inducible cDNA encoding a pleiotropic drug resistance (PDR)-type ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter homolog (NtPDR1) in suspension-cultured tobacco Bright Yellow-2Expand

Evidence for negative-strand RNA virus infection in fungi.
Fungal viruses comprise two groups: a major group of five families with double-stranded RNA genomes and a minor group with positive-sense single-stranded (ss)RNA genomes. Although many fungal virusesExpand

The ΔfliD mutant of Pseudomonas syringae pv. tabaci, which secretes flagellin monomers, induces a strong hypersensitive reaction (HR) in non-host tomato cells
To investigate the role of flagella and monomer flagellin in the interaction between Pseudomonas syringae pv. tabaci and plants, non-polar fliC and fliD mutants were produced. The ORFs for fliC andExpand

Post-translational modification of flagellin determines the specificity of HR induction.
Flagellin, a constituent of the flagellar filament, is a potent elicitor of hypersensitive cell death in plant cells. Flagellins of Pseudomonas syringae pvs. glycinea and tomato induce hypersensitiveExpand

Differential effects of flagellins from Pseudomonas syringae pv. tabaci, tomato and glycinea on plant defense response
To investigate the factor that determines incompatible interactions between Pseudomonas syringae pv. tabaci and non-host plants, an elicitor of hypersensitive reaction (HR) was partially purifiedExpand
