Revised Phylogeny and Novel Horizontally Acquired Virulence Determinants of the Model Soft Rot Phytopathogen Pectobacterium wasabiae SCC3193
Soft rot disease is economically one of the most devastating bacterial diseases affecting plants worldwide. In this study, we present novel insights into the phylogeny and virulence of the soft rotExpand

Pathogenicity of and plant immunity to soft rot pectobacteria
Soft rot pectobacteria are broad host range enterobacterial pathogens that cause disease on a variety of plant species including the major crop potato. Pectobacteria are aggressive necrotrophs thatExpand

Genome sequence of Pectobacterium sp. strain SCC3193.
We report the complete and annotated genome sequence of the plant-pathogenic enterobacterium Pectobacterium sp. strain SCC3193, a model strain isolated from potato in Finland. The Pectobacterium sp.Expand

Role and Regulation of the Flp/Tad Pilus in the Virulence of Pectobacterium atrosepticum SCRI1043 and Pectobacterium wasabiae SCC3193
In this study, we characterized a putative Flp/Tad pilus-encoding gene cluster, and we examined its regulation at the transcriptional level and its role in the virulence of potato pathogenicExpand

Genome sequence of the model plant pathogen Pectobacterium carotovorum SCC1
Bacteria of the genus Pectobacterium are economically important plant pathogens that cause soft rot disease on a wide variety of plant species. Here, we report the genome sequence of PectobacteriumExpand

Evidence that nematodes may vector the soft rot‐causing enterobacterial phytopathogens
Bacterial soft rot is a globally significant plant disease that causes major losses in the production of many popular crops, such as potato. Little is known about the dispersal and ecology ofExpand

Single gene enables plant pathogenic Pectobacterium to overcome host‐specific chemical defence
Abstract Plants of the Brassicales order, including Arabidopsis and many common vegetables, produce toxic isothiocyanates to defend themselves against pathogens. Despite this defence, plantExpand
