PLoS Pathogens - EfpR, a dual regulator of virulence and metabolic functions in Ralstonia solanacearum

PLoS Pathogens - EfpR and Ralstonia solanacearum
Experimental evolution of the plant pathogen Ralstonia solanacearum, where bacteria were maintained on plant lineages for more than 300 generations, revealed that several independent single mutations in the efpR gene from populations propagated on beans were associated with fitness gain on bean. In the present work, novel allelic efpR variants were isolated from populations propagated on other plant species, thus suggesting that mutations in efpR were not solely associated to a fitness gain on bean, but also on additional hosts.
