Xanthomonas 
Invasion: Type III Secretion System

Gram-negative bacteria of the genus Xanthomonas infect more than 300 different species worldwide. Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria causes bacterial spot disease on pepper and tomato plants.

  • The bacteria enter the plant intercellular spaces via natural openings.
  • Bacterial surface structures allow the attachment to host cells.
  • Xanthomonas produces the extracellular polysaccharide xanthan  that protects the bacteria from environmental factors.
  • An essential pathogenicity factor is the type III protein secretion system which spans the bacterial membranes…
  • … And is associated with an extracellular pilus.
  • The pilus is connected to a channel-like translocon that is inserted into the plant plasma membrane.
  • The type III secretion system transports approximately 30 different bacterial effector proteins into the plant cell.
  • Bacterial effector proteins are transported to different cellular compartments and manipulate host cellular pathways. Some effector proteins reach the plant cell nucleus and modify plant gene expression.
  • Effector proteins suppress plant defense responses and promote bacterial multiplication at the infection site.

Stop motion of ocean creatures made from man-made objects.

What I’ve been working on lately: vulvas, plates, and a funky octopus cup. An odd assortment!
