Phytopathogenic bacteria generally have limited host ranges, often confined to members of a single plant species or genus. This appears to result from negative factors restricting the host range ra.ther than from positive factors which allow the pathogen to infect its hosts. These negative factors are avirulence genes present in the pathogen, which interact with matching resistance genes in the host. When a pathogen carrying an avirulence gene attacks a plant with the corresponding resistance… CONTINUE READING
