Host Target Genes Of The Xanthomonas Oryzae Pv. Oryzae Type Iii Effectors For Bacterial Blight In Rice, Junhui Zhou

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae is the causal agent of the bacterial blight in rice, which invades the host rice plant through injecting a myriad of effector proteins through a structure called type Ⅲ secretion system, thereafter, these effectors are also called type Ⅲ effectors. There are two groups of type Ⅲ effectors: TAL (Transcription Activator-Like) effectors that specifically bind to the promoter region of particular host genes and regulate host gene transcription and Non-TAL effectors that bind to host gene products and manipulate the host immune system.

In this thesis, I present the work of three projects. First, I, and ...
