Bacterial virulence effectors and their activities

Hann, Dagmar R; Gimenez-Ibanez, Selena; Rathjen, John


The major virulence strategy for plant pathogenic bacteria is deployment of effector molecules within the host cytoplasm. Each bacterial strain possesses a set of 20-30 effectors which have overlapping activities, are functionally interchangeable, and diverge in composition between strains. Effectors target host molecules to suppress immunity. Two main strategies are apparent. Effectors that target host proteins seem to attack conserved structural domains but otherwise lack specificity.
