Gene targeting by the TAL effector PthXo2 reveals cryptic resistance gene for bacterial blight of rice.

Abstract

Bacterial blight of rice is caused by the γ-proteobacterium Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae, which utilizes a group of type III TAL (transcription activator-like) effectors to induce host gene expression and condition host susceptibility. Five SWEET genes are functionally redundant to support bacterial disease, but only two were experimentally proven targets… (More)
