The Pto Kinase of Tomato, Which Regulates Plant Immunity,Is Repressed by Its Myristoylated N Terminus

Andriotis, Vasilios M E; Rathjen, John

Description

Specific recognition of the Pseudomonas syringae effector proteins AvrPto and AvrPtoB in tomato is mediated by Pto kinase resulting in induction of defense responses, including hypersensitive cell death via a signaling pathway requiring the nucleotide-binding leucine-rich repeats protein Prf. Pto is amyristoylated protein, and N-myristoylation is required for signaling. Here we demonstrated a role for N-myristoylation in controlling Pto kinase activity. A myristoylated peptide corresponding to...[Show more]
