A corrigendum on
MorTAL Kombat: the story of defense against TAL effectors through loss-of-susceptibility

by Hutin, M., Pérez-Quintero, A. L., Lopez, C., and Szurek, B. (2015). Front. Plant Sci. 6:535. doi: 10.3389/fpls.2015.00535

There is an error in the statement about MeSWEET10a function in cassava bacterial blight. The TAL20-dependent activation of MeSWEET10a contributes to water soaking symptoms and also to bacterial growth in the plant, in contrast to what is reported in the review. The growth defect seen upon inoculation of Xam668ΔTAL20 is small but it is statistically significant (Cohn et al., 2014). Accordingly, one should also read in Table 1 that TAL20 increases growth and water soaking (column “effect”).

Conflict of Interest Statement
