Tomato Pto encodes a functional N-myristoylation motif that is required for signal transduction in Nicotiana benthamiana

de Vries , Jeroen; Andriotis, Vasilios M E; Wu, Ai-Jiuan; Rathjen, John


Pto kinase of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) confers resistance to bacterial speck disease caused by Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato expressing avrPto or avrPtoB. Pto interacts directly with these type-III secreted effectors, leading to induction of defence responses including the hypersensitive response (HR). Signalling by Pto requires the nucleotide-binding site-leucine-rich repeat (NBS-LRR) protein Prf. Little is known of how Pto is controlled prior to or during stimulation, although...[Show more]
