SUMO proteases as bacterial virulence proteins

Leader/s: Javier Ruiz Albert
This research line pursues the molecular characterization of TTSS effector proteins from several phytopathogenic bacteria, belonging to the C55 family of SUMO-specific proteases. We aim to confirm their specific activity both in vitro and in vivo, to identify their interacting partners in planta, to analyse their role in the infectious process, and to determine their contribution to virulence or to the induction of plant defense reactions.
