Abstract

Aims: This study aimed to identify virulence-associated genes and functions that affect disease development on pear caused by E. amylovora EaUMG3 isolated from Iran. Methods and Results: A mini-Tn5 transposon library was generated in EaUMG3. An E. amylovora mutant that had lost its ability to cause lesions on immature pear fruits, was selected for further analysis. This mutant was shown to have a transposon insertion in yqhC, a gene belongs to the AraC family of transcriptional regulators. A mutant of the wild-type EaUMG3 carrying an unmarked deletion of the yqhC gene was created using pDMS197. The EaΔyqhC mutant showed reduced disease progression on immature pear fruits and pear plants, reduced motility and significantly lower levels of the virulence factors siderophore and amylovoran. Complementation with yqhC cloned in pBBR1MCS restored disease progression and the level of virulence factors to near wild type. Conclusion: YqhC transcriptional regulator is necessary for full virulence of E. amylovora. In addition, this regulator affects virulence factors such as siderophore production, amylovoran production, and motility. Significance and Impact of Study: The identification of a novel transcriptional regulator with strong impact in the pathogenesis of E. amylovora, an organism causing significant economic losses in fruit production.
