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

Characterization of SNAREs Determines the Absence of a Typical Golgi Apparatus in the Ancient Eukaryote Giardia lamblia*
Giardia is a eukaryotic protozoal parasite with unusual characteristics, such as the absence of a morphologically evident Golgi apparatus. Although both constitutive and regulated pathways forExpand

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

Active and Passive Mechanisms Drive Secretory Granule Biogenesis during Differentiation of the Intestinal Parasite Giardia lamblia*
The parasitic protozoan Giardia lamblia undergoes important changes to survive outside the intestine of its host by differentiating into infective cysts. During encystation, three cyst wall proteinsExpand

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.
