Direct Interaction between the Tobacco Mosaic Virus Helicase Domain and the ATP-bound Resistance Protein, N Factor during the Hypersensitive Response in Tobacco Plants

Plants cope with pathogens with distinct mechanisms. One example is a gene-for-gene system, in which plants recognize the pathogen molecule by specified protein(s), this being called the R factor. However, mechanisms of interaction between proteins from the host and the pathogen are not completely understood. Here, we analyzed the mode of interaction… (More)
