Disease relevance of hrpY

  • Two novel regulatory components, hrpX and hrpY, of the hrp system of Erwinia amylovora were identified [1].

High impact information on hrpY

  • An hrpY mutant is defective in pilus production, impaired in interactions with plants and in secretion of the PopA protein but not in attachment to plant cells [2].
  • The sequence of a 3.7-kb SmaI-SstI fragment covering groups VIII and IX now reveals five open reading frames (ORFs) in the same transcript, designated as hrpU, hrpW, hrpO, hrpX, and hrpY, and predicted to encode proteins of 14,795, 23,211, 9,381, 28,489, and 39,957 Da, respectively [3].

Biological context of hrpY

  • When hrpS or hrpL were provided on multicopy plasmids, both hrpX and hrpY mutants recovered the ability to elicit the hypersensitive reaction in tobacco [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of hrpY
