Tal Effectors

Transcription activator-like effector nuclease

daTALbase: a database for genomic and transcriptomic data related to TAL effectors.

Transcription activator-like effectors (TALEs) are proteins discovered within the genus Xanthomonas of phytopathogenic micro organism. These proteins enter the nucleus of cells within the host plant and can induce the expression of susceptibility genes (S genes), triggering illness. TALEs bind the promoter area of S genes following a particular code, which permits the prediction of binding websites based mostly on TALEs amino acid sequences....
