Apoplastic effectors secreted by two unrelated eukaryotic plant pathogens target the tomato defense protease Rcr3.

Abstract:

Current models of plant-pathogen interactions stipulate that pathogens secrete effector proteins that disable plant defense components known as virulence targets. Occasionally, the perturbations caused by these effectors trigger innate immunity via plant disease resistance proteins as described by the "guard hypothesis." This model is nicely illustrated by the interaction between the fungal plant pathogen Cladosporium fulvum and tomato. C. fulvum secretes a protease inhibitor Avr2 that target...
