Previously, we have shown that the Genome of Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus (CLas) possess luxR gene that encodes LuxR protein, one of the two components typical of bacterial “quorum sensing”. However, the genome lacks the second component; luxI that produce Acyl-Homoserine Lactones (AHLs) suggesting that CLas has a solo LuxR system. In the current project, we have only one objective: study the effect of AHL-producing citrus plants on the pathogenicity of CLas. We have selected different Lux-I genes from different bacteria expressing structurally different AHLs. Due to the difficulties we faced in growing different bacteria to extract DNA for LuxI isolation, we changed our strategy to synthesizing these genes (G-Blocks). Synthesized genes include 1- Agrobacterium tumefaciens N-(B-oxo-octan-1-oyl)-L-homoserine lactone(Hwang et al., 1994) TraI Accession number#L22207.1 2- Pseudomonas fluorescens Six acyl-HSLs, including the 3-hydroxy forms, N-(3-hydroxy-hexanoyl)-L-homoserine lactone(3-OH-C6-HSL), N-(3-hydroxy-octanoyl)-L-homoserine lactone (3-OH-C8-HSL), and N-(3-hydroxy-decanoyl)-L-homoserine lactone (3-OH-C10-HSL); the alkanoyl forms hexanoyl-homoserine lactone (C6-HSL) and octanoyl-homoserine lactone (C8-HSL)(Khan et al., 2005) PhzI Accession number#AAC18898.1 3-Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae 3-OH-C14:1-HSL (Wilkinson et al., 2002, Edwards et al., 2009) CinI Accession number#AF210630 4-Serratia liquifaciens N-(butyryl)-L- homoserine lactone (BHL) (Oulmassov et al., 2005) SwrI Accession number#U22823.1 5- Vibrio fischeri OHHL (Schaefer et al., 1996) LuxI Accession number#AAD48474.1 We already started the first step of expressing these genes by inserting them in CTV-based vector prior to the infiltration inside citrus trees. Our aim is to interfere with CLas signaling by expressing AHL which will enhance the bacterial aggregation and attachment and results in localization of the bacterium in certain branches.
