Salinibacter: an extremely halophilic bacterium with archaeal properties
The bacterium Erwinia amylovora causes fire blight, an invasive disease that threatens apple and pear trees. Its pathogenicity relies on a type III secretion system and on a single effector DspA/E. This effector belongs to the widespread AvrE family of effectors whose biological function is unknown. In this manuscript, the researchers performed a bioinformatic analysis of DspA/E- and AvrE-related effectors.
