Abstract: Effector proteins are virulence factors that promote pathogenesis by interfering with various cellular events and are delivered directly into host cells by the secretion systems of many Gram-negative bacteria. Type III effector protein XOO4466 from the plant pathogen Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae (XopQ(Xoo)) and XopQ homologs from other phytopathogens have been predicted to be nucleoside hydrolases based on their sequence similarities. However, despite such similarities, recent structural and functional studie…
