In the current study, we identified a key functional region in harpins from Xanthomonas that suppressed protein aggregation and mediated its expression in E. coli. Our data suggested that the presence of two common features in harpins [Wei et al. (1992) Science 257:85-88], namely, high glycine content and lack of cysteine residues, were not sufficient for Xanthomonas to elicit hypersensitive response (HR) activity or heat stability. Additionally, bioinformatic analyses revealed that the… CONTINUE READING
