Soft rot disease is economically one of the most devastating bacterial diseases affecting plants worldwide. In this study, we present novel insights into the phylogeny and virulence of the soft rot model Pectobacterium sp. SCC3193, which was isolated from a diseased potato stem in Finland in the early 1980s. Genomic approaches, including proteome and genome comparisons of all sequenced soft rot bacteria, revealed that SCC3193, previously included in the species Pectobacterium carotovorum, can…

Genome Wide Analysis of the Potato Soft Rot Pathogen Pectobacterium carotovorum Strain ICMP 5702 to Predict Novel Insights into Its Genetic Features.
TLDR
An in-depth genome-wide characterization of Pcc strain ICMP5702 isolated from potato is performed and it is compared with other pathogenic bacteria from the Pectobacterium genus to identify key virulent determinants.
Genomic overview of the phytopathogen Pectobacterium wasabiae strain RNS 08.42.1A suggests horizontal acquisition of quorum-sensing genes
TLDR
The isolation, characterization and genome analysis of the Pectobacterium wasabiae strain RNS 08.42.1A, that has been isolated from a Solanum tuberosum host plant in France, highlighted both a strong similarity at the whole genome level and a conserved synteny of the virulence genes.
Comparative genomic analysis of Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. brasiliense SX309 provides novel insights into its genetic and phenotypic features
TLDR
Genome comparison revealed that most virulence genes are highly conserved in the Pectobacterium strains, especially for the key virulence determinants involved in the biosynthesis of extracellular enzymes and others including the type II and III secretion systems, quorum sensing system, flagellar and chemotactic genes.
Analysis of the Taxonomy and Pathogenic Factors of Pectobacterium aroidearum L6 Using Whole-Genome Sequencing and Comparative Genomics
TLDR
This study provides a foundation for a better understanding of the genomic structure of P. aroidearum and particularly offers information for the discovery of potential pathogenic factors and the development of more effective strategies against this pathogen.
Genome-Wide Analyses Revealed Remarkable Heterogeneity in Pathogenicity Determinants, Antimicrobial Compounds, and CRISPR-Cas Systems of Complex Phytopathogenic Genus Pectobacterium
TLDR
Detailed genome-wide comparative analyses of twelve species that conform the Pectobacterium genus decipher the different strategies that each species has developed to infect their hosts, outcompete for food resources, and defend against bacteriophages.
Genome Sequence of Dickeya solani, a New soft Rot Pathogen of Potato, Suggests its Emergence May Be Related to a Novel Combination of Non-Ribosomal Peptide/Polyketide Synthetase Clusters
TLDR
The fast spreading of D. solani may be related to the acquisition of new properties that affect its interaction with plants and other microbes in the potato ecosystem.
Complete genome sequence and pathogenic genes analysis of Pectobacterium atroseptica JG10-08
TLDR
The complete genome sequence of P. atroseptica strain JG10-08 revealed total 168 genes were potentially related to pathogenesis including 9 strain-specific genes encoding toxins on the genome of JG 10-08, which provided a solid foundation for discovering the underlying pathogenic mechanisms of the bacterium.
Diversity and Pathogenicity of Pectobacterium Species Responsible for Causing Soft Rot and Blackleg of Potato in the Columbia Basin
TLDR
Pectobacterium and Dickeya species cause soft rot and blackleg diseases of potato which result in yield losses throughout the United States and their diversity has implications for accurate diagnostics.
Host Specificity and Differential Pathogenicity of Pectobacterium Strains from Dicot and Monocot Hosts
TLDR
Differential responses of Pectobacterium isolates from potato and calla lily on two typical hosts were characterized, with clear host specific responses following infection with the two bacterial strains.
Comparative genomics of 84 Pectobacterium genomes reveals the variations related to a pathogenic lifestyle
TLDR
This study delineates the general genetic features of P. carotovorum by comparison with its four closely related species, thereby substantially enriching the extent of information now available for functional genomic investigations about Pectobacterium.

Phylogeny and Virulence of Naturally Occurring Type III Secretion System-Deficient Pectobacterium Strains
TLDR
Three previously described DNA-based methods were used, 16S-23S intergenic transcribed spacer PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis, multilocus sequence analysis (MLSA), and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, to examine isolates from diseased stems and tubers and found that MLSA provided the most reliable classification of isolates.
Genetic characterisation of Pectobacterium wasabiae causing soft rot disease of potato in New Zealand
TLDR
Genetic characterisation of P. wasabiae confirmed that it is a naturally occurring pathogen on potato, which does not possess the same suite of virulence factors that are involved in the pathogenicity of other enterobacteria on this host.

The genome sequence of a plant pathogenic enterobacterium, Erwinia carotovora subsp.
Biochemical and genetic diversity of pectolytic enterobacteria causing soft rot disease of potatoes in New Zealand
TLDR
Several of the atypical strains proved highly virulent on both tubers and stems of potato, suggesting that a variety of novel species or subspecies are responsible for soft rot of potatoes in New Zealand, including Pectobacterium wasabiae.
A pleiotropic reduced virulence (Rvi−) mutant of Erwinia carotovora subspecies atroseptica is defective in flagella assembly proteins that are conserved in plant and animal bacterial pathogens
TLDR
These studies highlight the emergence of common themes in the molecular strategies employed by both plant and animal bacterial pathogens for the targeting of proteins involved in the elaboration of disease.
Host range and molecular phylogenies of the soft rot enterobacterial genera pectobacterium and dickeya.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of sequences concatenated from regions of seven housekeeping genes from representatives of these genera demonstrated that Dickeya spp.
Identification and characterization of Nip, necrosis-inducing virulence protein of Erwinia carotovora subsp. carotovora.
TLDR
A mutant strain of E. carotovora lacking the nip gene showed reduced virulence in potato tuber assay but was unaffected in virulent in potato stem or on other tested host plants.
The use of two complementary DNA assays, AFLP and MLSA, for epidemic and phylogenetic studies of pectolytic enterobacterial strains with focus on the heterogeneous species Pectobacterium carotovorum
TLDR
The results indicate the need for a revision of the previously classified strains, as some potato-derived Pectobacterium carotovorum strains were re-identified as P. wasabiae and P. atrosepticum, and a lack of correlation between the geographical origin and classification of these pathogens.
Niche-specificity and the variable fraction of the Pectobacterium pan-genome.
TLDR
The presence of a hrpK-like type III secretion system-dependent effector protein in P. atrosepticum is demonstrated to be insufficient to explain variability in their response to infection in a plant, as well as differences in more general aspects of gene regulation and metabolism that may be relevant to pathogenicity.
Use of a pooled transposon mutation grid to demonstrate roles in disease development for Erwinia carotovora subsp. atroseptica putative type III secreted effector (DspE/A) and helper (HrpN) proteins.
TLDR
An arrayed set of Tn5 insertional mutants was constructed and pooled to allow rapid isolation of mutants for any given gene by polymerase chain reaction screening, and this novel approach was used to obtain mutations in two structural genes (hrcC and hrcV) and the effector gene dspE/A, and the helper gene hrpN.
