Host-targeting protein 1 (SpHtp1) from the oomycete Saprolegnia parasitica translocates specifically into fish cells in a tyrosine-O-sulphate-dependent manner.


The eukaryotic oomycetes, or water molds, contain several species that are devastating pathogens of plants and animals. During infection, oomycetes translocate effector proteins into host cells, where they interfere with host-defense responses. For several oomycete effectors (i.e., the RxLR-effectors) it has been shown that their N-terminal polypeptides are… (More)
