SWEET genes and TAL effectors for disease resistance in plants: Present status and future prospects

SWEET genes encode sugar transporter proteins and usually perform as susceptibility (S) genes. Consequently, the recessive alleles of those SWEET genes present resistance. This evaluate summarizes the accessible literature on the molecular foundation of the position of SWEET genes (as S genes) in the host and corresponding transcription activator-like effectors (TALEs) secreted by the pathogen. The evaluate has 4 main sections, which comply with...
