Abstract:
Root pathogen Verticillium dahliae deploys an effector called VdSCP41 into plants to disrupt the functions of SARD1 and CBP60g, two central transcriptional regulators of plant immunity. This provides new tools to dissect transcriptional regulation of tissue-specific immunity in the root and to understand dynamic interactions between plants and root-associated microorganisms.
