Transcriptional changes determined by expression of the Xanthomonas AvrRxv effector in resistant tomato plants

Experiment description: Tomato plants of the cultivar H7998, resistant to Xanthomonas campestris pv. tomato race T1 (Xcv T1), were inoculated with Xcv T3 carrying either a functional or mutated AvrRxv effector protein (from Xcv T1). The goal is to identify genes that are directly modulated by the expression of a functional AvrRxv effector protein from Xcv T1 in resistant tomato plants
