Rhizobium type III secretion systems: legume charmers or alarmers?

Published inCurrent opinion in plant biology, vol. 4, no. 4, p. 336-342
Publication date2001

Mutagenesis and sequence analyses of rhizobial genomes have revealed the presence of genes encoding type III secretion systems. Considered as a machine used by plant and animal pathogens to deliver virulence factors into their hosts, this secretion apparatus has recently been proven to play a role in symbiotic bacteria–leguminous plant interactions.
