I Abstract Many phytopathogenic bacteria inject virulence effector proteins into
plant cells via a Hrp type III secretion system (TTSS). Without the TTSS, these
pathogens cannot defeat basal defenses, grow in plants, produce disease lesions in
hosts, or elicit the hypersensitive response (HR) in nonhosts. Pathogen genome projects
employing bioinformatic methods to identify TTSS Hrp regulon promoters and TTSS
