Type III protein secretion in Pseudomonas syringae.

Journal Article (Review;Journal Article)

The type III secretion system is an essential virulence system used by many Gram-negative bacterial pathogens to deliver effector proteins into host cells. This review summarizes recent advancements in the understanding of the type III secretion system of Pseudomonas syringae, including regulation of the type III secretion genes, assembly of the Hrp pilus, secretion signals, the putative type III effectors identified to date, and their virulence action after translocation into plant cells.
