Suppression of the AvrBs1-specific hypersensitive response by the YopJ effector homolog AvrBsT from Xanthomonas depends on a SNF1-related kinase.
*Pathogenicity of the Gram-negative plant pathogen Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria (Xcv) depends on a type III secretion system that translocates a cocktail of > 25 type III effector proteinsExpand

An EST survey of the sugarcane transcriptome
Its large genome and high polyploidy makes sugarcane (Saccharum spp.) a singularly challenging crop to study and improve using genetic approaches. To provide large numbers of functionallyExpand

A Pathogen Type III Effector with a Novel E3 Ubiquitin Ligase Architecture
Type III effectors are virulence factors of Gram-negative bacterial pathogens delivered directly into host cells by the type III secretion nanomachine where they manipulate host cell processes suchExpand

Non-host Resistance Induced by the Xanthomonas Effector XopQ Is Widespread within the Genus Nicotiana and Functionally Depends on EDS1
Most Gram-negative plant pathogenic bacteria translocate effector proteins (T3Es) directly into plant cells via a conserved type III secretion system, which is essential for pathogenicity inExpand

Analysis of new type III effectors from Xanthomonas uncovers XopB and XopS as suppressors of plant immunity.
The pathogenicity of the Gram-negative plant-pathogenic bacterium Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria (Xcv) is dependent on type III effectors (T3Es) that are injected into plant cells by a typeExpand

Identification of the genus Armillaria by specific amplification of an rDNA‐ITS fragment and evaluation of genetic variation within A. ostoyae by rDNA‐RFLP and RAPD analysis
Summary Genetic variation among Armillaria ostoyae isolates was studied by rDNA-restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis. A total of 20Expand

Activation of defense against Phytophthora infestans in potato by down-regulation of syntaxin gene expression.
The oomycete Phytophthora infestans is the causal agent of late blight, the most devastating disease of potato. The importance of vesicle fusion processes and callose deposition for defense of potatoExpand

Myoglobin as a prognostic indicator for outcome in dogs with gastric dilatation-volvulus.
OBJECTIVE To determine whether myoglobin (Mb) is a useful prognostic indicator for outcome and to investigate any relationship between Mb and mortality in dogs with gastric dilatation-volvulus (GDV).Expand

Exchanging the minimal cell binding fragments of tetanus neurotoxin in botulinum neurotoxin A and B impacts their toxicity at the neuromuscular junction and central neurons.
The modular four domain structure of clostridial neurotoxins supports the idea to reassemble individual domains from tetanus and botulinum neurotoxins to generate novel molecules with alteredExpand
