We demonstrate that the interaction of the avirulence gene avrRpt2 and the cognate resistance gene RPS2 interferes with the interaction of avrRpm1-RPM1 in Arabidopsis. Interference is mediated outside of the bacterial pathogen Pseudomonas syringae, presumably at the level of recognition of avr-dependent signals, yet does not require the wild-type RPS2 product. A numerical excess of P. syringae expressing avrRpm1 can overcome this interference in mixed inoculations. The interference of avrRpt2… CONTINUE READING
