Avirulence B/C (IPR008798)

Short name: Avirulence_B/C

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships



This entry represents the avirulence B and C proteins from Pseudomonas syringae [PMID: 3049552] and related proteins from Xanthomonas campestris [PMID: 12024217]. avrB and avrC encode these proteins, which are 36 and 39 kilodaltons in size respectively [PMID: 3049552]. Pathogenic bacterial effectors suppress pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMP)-triggered host immunity, thereby promoting parasitism. AvrB suppresses PAMP-triggered immunity (PTI) through RAR1, which is for effector-triggered immunity (ETI) [PMID: 17148606].
