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 the Perspective by Voytas and Joung). Moscou and Bogdanove (p. 1501, published online 29 October: see the cover) and Boch et al. (p. 1509, published online 29 October) have now discovered how the similar but not identical repeats in the TAL proteins encode the specificity needed for the proteins to find… Expand
TAL effector-DNA specificity
TLDR
The predicted DNA specificities of TAL effectors were predicted and artificial TAL proteins with novel DNA recognition specificities were generated, enabling design of proteins with potentially any given DNA recognition specificity enabling many uses for biotechnology. Expand
Structural Basis for Sequence-Specific Recognition of DNA by TAL Effectors
Wrapped DNA TAL effectors are proteins that bacterial pathogens inject into plant cells that bind to host DNA to activate expression of plant genes. The DNA-binding domain of TAL proteins is composedExpand
TAL effectors from Xanthomonas: design of a programmable DNA-binding specificity
TLDR
A method called "Golden TAL Technology" is developed that allows a flexible assembly of TAL proteins with a designed order of repeats, which allows a simple reprogramming of DNA-binding specificity. Expand
TAL Effectors Specificity Stems from Negative Discrimination
TLDR
The explanatory paradigm presented herein provides a better comprehension of this elegant architecture and is hoped will allow for improved designs of TAL-derived biotechnological tools. Expand
Predicting promoters targeted by TAL effectors in plant genomes: from dream to reality
TLDR
An overview of the current tools and strategies that may be applied for finding targets of TAL effectors is given and several perspectives offered by these new tools are highlighted. Expand
TAL effectors are remote controls for gene activation.
TLDR
How TAL specificity is encoded, first structural data and first data on site-specific TAL nucleases are summarized are summarized. Expand

  • 2015
TLDR
This work reviewed the development of this technology in multi-level and multi species, and its advantages and disadvantages compared with ZFNs and CRISPR/Cas technology, and addressed its special advantages in industrial microbe breeding, vector construction, targeting precision, high efficiency of editing and biological safety.

The Crystal Structure of TAL Effector PthXo1 Bound to Its DNA Target
TLDR
The crystal structure of PthXo1 bound to its DNA target was determined by high-throughput computational structure prediction and validated by heavy-atom derivatization, and illustrates the basis of TAL effector–DNA recognition. Expand
The Use and Development of TAL Effector Nucleases
TLDR
The discovery of a novel DNA binding domain derived from transcription activator-like effectors of the plant pathogen genus Xanthomonas set the stage for the generation of various designer proteins by fusing tailored TALE-based DNA binding domains with either endonucleases, transcriptional modulators or chromatin remodeling domains with the final purpose to modify the genome, the transcriptome or the epigenome.

TLDR
The findings and functions of TAL effectors, the binding specificity and recognition code between TAL-effectors and host target genes, and the possible applications and future prospects of the molecular recognition code have been discussed. Expand

A Bacterial Effector Acts as a Plant Transcription Factor and Induces a Cell Size Regulator
TLDR
It is shown that AvrBs3 induces the expression of a master regulator of cell size, upa20, which encodes a transcription factor containing a basic helix-loop-helix domain that provokes developmental reprogramming of host cells by mimicking eukaryotic transcription factors. Expand

11 new UPA genes from bell pepper that are induced by AvrBs3 early after infection with Xcv are described and it is demonstrated that the UPA box corresponds to the center of the AvrBS3-protected DNA region. Expand
How Xanthomonas type III effectors manipulate the host plant.

Gene-for-gene-mediated recognition of nuclear-targeted AvrBs3-like bacterial effector proteins.
TLDR
This review summarizes the current knowledge on R-protein-mediated recognition of AvrBs3-like proteins and provides working models on how recognition is achieved at the molecular level. Expand
Recognition of the Bacterial Avirulence Protein AvrBs3 Occurs inside the Host Plant Cell
The molecular mechanism by which bacterial avirulence genes mediate recognition by resistant host plants has been enigmatic for more than a decade. In this paper we provide evidence that theExpand
Race-specificity of plant resistance to bacterial spot disease determined by repetitive motifs in a bacterial avirulence protein
TLDR
It is reported here that the repetitive region of the avrBs3 gene determines race-specificity and that deletions of repeat units generate new avirulence specificities and unmask undiscovered resistance genes in pepper and tomato. Expand

High-frequency ZFN-stimulated gene targeting at endogenous plant genes, namely the tobacco acetolactate synthase genes (ALS SuRA and SuRB), for which specific mutations are known to confer resistance to imidazolinone and sulphonylurea herbicides are demonstrated. Expand
The xanthomonas type III effector protein AvrBs3 modulates plant gene expression and induces cell hypertrophy in the susceptible host.
TLDR
It is reported that infection of susceptible pepper and tomato plants leads to an AvrBs3-dependent hypertrophy of the mesophyll tissue, and that xanthomonads possess type III effectors that steer host gene expression. Expand
R gene expression induced by a type-III effector triggers disease resistance in rice
TLDR
Xa 27 specificity towards incompatible pathogens involves the differential expression of the R gene in the presence of the AvrXa27 effector. Expand

TLDR
Evidence supports the hypothesis that expression of the associated host genes contributes to host susceptibility to disease and modulates the expression of multiple host genes using multiple TAL effectors from a single strain. Expand
