Citrus canker, caused by the bacterium Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri (Xac), is a disease that affects most species of the genus Citrus, occurs in almost all continents and stands as a threat to the Brazilian citrus industry. The molecular mechanism by which Xac causes canker is not entirely known, however, the bacterium translocates proteins into the host cell, including members of t...
Transcription activator-like (TAL) effectors from Xanthomonas pathogens act as transcription factors in plant cells; however, how TAL effectors activate host transcription is unknown. We found previously that PthA4, the main TAL effector of the citrus canker pathogen Xanthomonas citri, specifically binds to citrus MAF1 (CsMAF1), an RNA Pol III repressor that controls ribosome biogenesis...
