Bacterial blight of rice, caused by gram-negative bacteria Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (Xoo), is one of the most severe bacterial diseases affecting rice worldwide. The major virulence effectors in Xoo are transcription activator-like (TAL) effectors, which function like eukaryotic transcription factors. Xa10 is a rice bacterial blight resistance (R) gene, which confers race-specific resistance to Xoo strains harboring TAL effector AvrXa10.
In this study, we show that Xa10 contains an effector-binding element for AvrXa10 (EBEAvrXa10) in the promoter region, and is specifically induced by AvrXa10. (Abstract shortened by UMI.)
