Identification of regulators of hrp/hop genes of Erwinia carotovora ssp. carotovora and characterization of HrpL(Ecc) (SigmaL(EccM)), an alternative sigma factor.


Summary Erwinia carotovora ssp. carotovora (Ecc) possesses hrpN(Ecc)[hrp = gene for hypersensitive reaction (HR) and pathogenicity], the structural gene for Harpin(Ecc), the inducer of the HR-like response and genes for the type III secretion system. In Ecc, RsmA, an RNA-binding protein responsible for the accelerated decay of RNA species, tightly controls… (More)
