Cover for Disease-specific genes of <i xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">Erwinia amylovora</i>: keys to understanding pathogenesis and potential targets for disease control.

This chapter discusses the discovery and the genetic characterization of a disease-specific (dsp) locus in Erwinia amylovora required for the pathogenesis in host plants but not required for elicitation of defence responses in non-host plants. This dsp locus contains two genes, dspE and dspF, and...
