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]
