Breaking the Code of DNA Binding Specificity of TAL-Type III Effectors
TAL Order Xanthomonas bacteria attack their plant hosts by delivering their own transcription-activator–like (TAL) proteins into the plant cell nucleus and alter the plant's gene regulation (see theExpand

A Bacterial Effector Acts as a Plant Transcription Factor and Induces a Cell Size Regulator
Pathogenicity of many Gram-negative bacteria relies on the injection of effector proteins by type III secretion into eukaryotic cells, where they modulate host signaling pathways to the pathogen'sExpand

HrpXv, an AraC-type regulator, activates expression of five of the six loci in the hrp cluster of Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria.
hrp genes, basic pathogenicity genes of the pepper and tomato pathogen Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria, are regulated dependent on environmental conditions. We isolated the hrpXv gene, whichExpand

Eukaryotic features of the Xanthomonas type III effector AvrBs3: protein domains involved in transcriptional activation and the interaction with nuclear import receptors from pepper.
The AvrBs3 protein of the phytopathogenic bacterium Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria is targeted to host-plant cells by the bacterial Hrp type III secretion system. In pepper plants containingExpand
