By G. A. Beattie, S. E. Lindow (auth.), Jeffery L. Dangl (eds.)

The final decade has noticeable an explosion in our realizing of ways bacterial pathogens trick, cajole, usurp and parasitize their quite a few hosts. This renaissance is because of the convergence of molecular and mobile strategies with the facility of microbial genetics. the aim of this quantity is to introduce fresh advances in figuring out chosen structures selected from either plant and animal hosts of bacterial pathogens. This a bit of nonobvious selection of issues used to be spurred by means of the hot findings, specified via a number of conributors to this quantity, of universal structures used to secrete virulence components from pathogens of either vegetation and animals. those serendipitous findings underscored the significance of easy study methods to parallel difficulties in biology. extra importantly, they introduced jointly investigators who won't have another way develop into conversant with each one other's experimental structures. I, for one, locate the categories of synergism mirrored in a quantity of this type to be essentially the most friendly features of technology and wish that the reader, no matter if a newcomer to the sector or knowledgeable, can discover a new slant to previous difficulties within the reports contained h,E:lre. It was once, although, essential to restrict quantity size, and this has compelled the exclusion of a couple of interesting bacterial pathosystems.

This may suggest that seedling tests indicate tissue degradation capacity, corresponding to a late phase of the natural disease; it is likely that, using only this assay, genes involved in more subtle effects would be missed. In addition to symptom production and bacterial growth, more detailed studies of host responses, in particular defence-related gene expression, is certainly warranted. Recent work in our laboratory on the induction of ~-1 ,3glucanase gene transcription in response to a number of defined pathogenicity mutants of Xc.

In natural infections, Xc. campestris enters the plant principally through the hydathodes at the leaf margin, although secondary entry sites can develop in wounds or roots (COOK et al. 1952). This allows the bacteria to gain access to the vascular system of the plant. Here the bacteria are usually confined to the xylem (BRETSCHNEIDER et al. 1989). except in the later phases of the disease in which severe tissue degradation takes place. The characteristic symptoms of the disease in the field consist of V-shaped chlorotic lesions spreading from the leaf margins within which are blackened leaf veins.
