TALEs – 10 Jahre nach Entschlüsselung des Codes


Plant-pathogenic bacteria of the genus Xanthomonas use transcription
activator-like effectors (TALEs) to induce gene expression in host plants
and promote disease. Deciphering the code of TALE-DNA binding in 2009
was a milestone, which enabled researchers to predict TALE virulence
targets and generate resistant plants with modern genome editing tools.
