eLIFE - A non canonical subtilase attenuates the transcriptional activation of defence responses in Arabidopsis thaliana

eLIFE - A non canonical subtilase / Arabidopsis thaliana
LIPM researchers identified an atypical protease of the subtilase family [SBT5.2(b)] that attenuates the transcriptional activation of plant defence independently of its protease activity. The SBT5.2 gene produces two distinct transcripts encoding a canonical secreted subtilase [SBT5.2(a)] and an intracellular protein [SBT5.2(b)]. Concomitant to SBT5.2(a) downregulation, SBT5.2(b) expression is induced after bacterial inoculation. SBT5.2(b) localizes to endosomes where it interacts with and retains the defence-related transcription factor MYB30. Nuclear exclusion ofMYB30 results in its reduced transcriptional activation and, thus, suppressed resistance.
