The type VI protein secretion system (T6SS) is essential for the virulence of several Gram-negative bacteria. In this study, we identified a T6SS gene cluster in Acidovorax citrulli, a plant-pathogenic bacterium that causes bacterial fruit blotch (BFB) of cucurbits. One T6SS cluster, of approximately 25 kb in length and comprising 17 genes, was found in the A. citrulli AAC00-1 genome. Seventeen A. citrulli mutants were generated, each with a deletion of a single T6SS core gene. There were… CONTINUE READING
