Background: AVR3a is a Phytophthora infestans effector that translocates into potato cells dependent on the N-terminal RxLR leader. Results: AVR3a dimerization is inhibited by a mutation that also impairs translocation. Conclusion: Phospholipid binding of AVR3a is probably physiologically irrelevant because only denatured protein molecules bind. Significance: Our findings will help us to understand how oomycete RxLR effectors function.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'Avirulence protein 3a (AVR3a) from the potato pathogen Phytophthora infestans forms homodimers through its predicted translocation region and does not specifically bind phospholipids'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
