• Identification of chromosomal type II toxin-antitoxin system from plant pathogenic Pseudomonas cichorii JBC 1

    1 month ago - By Springer

    Almost all bacteria harbor toxin-antitoxin systems on their chromosomes, which are associated with diverse biological roles such as stress response, cell physiology, biofilm formation, and programmed cell death. Pseudomonas cichorii JBC1 has a diverse host range and can cause disease in a wide range of plant species. Under favorable environmental conditions, the bacterium can cause severe disease in nearly all of the crops that have been described. However, TA systems have not been determined.
    This study aimed to identify the TA system of P. cichorii JBC1...
