A hrpJ mutant of Erwinia carotovora subsp. atroseptica (Eca) was constructed and the effects of this mutation on induction of the hypersensitivity response and virulence of Eca were studied. The hrpJ mutant does not induce the HR in non-host plant Vicia faba (V. faba) and demonstrates cultivar-dependent increase or decrease of virulence on potato plants.Keywords:
