The HopPtoF locus in Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato DC3000 harbors two genes, ShcF and HopF2 (previously named ShcF(Pto) and HopF(Pto)), that encode a type III chaperone and a cognate effector protein, respectively. The HopF2 gene has a rare initiation codon, ATA that was reported to be functional only in mitochondrial genes. Here, we report that the native HopPtoF locus of DC3000 confers an avirulence function in tobacco W38 plants, indicating that the ATA start codon directs the synthesis of… CONTINUE READING
