After the publication of this work , we became aware of several errors in our descriptions of proteins associated with the type III secretion system (T3SS) of P. syringae pathovar tabaci (Pta) strain 11528.
Pta 11528 encodes a full-length homologue of T3SS helper protein HrpA2 (Locus tag C1E_5326 in our annotation; RefSeq: ZP_05641290.1). Therefore hrpA2 should have been shown in boldface and underlined in Figure 1 of the manuscript . This has been remedied in Figure 1 of this Correction
Contrary to the original manuscript , HopR1 is degenerate in Pta 11528. In the Pta 11528 draft assembly, the hopR1 gene was split into at least two open reading frames (RefSeq: ZP_05639788.1, ZP_05639787.1; locus tags C1E_3889, C1E_3890) suggesting that is a degenerate pseudogene. We confirmed the presence of an internal stop codon in hopR1 using capillary sequencing. This degeneracy should have been indicated by marking hopR1 with a double asterisk (**) in Figure 1. This has been remedied in Figure 1 of this Correction
Pta 11528 encodes a full-length HopM1 homologue (RefSeq: ZP_05641297.1; locus tag C1E_5336; GenBank: ACR46722.1). The fact that HopM1 is intact and not degenerate should have been indicated in Figure 1 (by highlighting hopM1 in boldface and underlined) in the original manuscript . This has been remedied in Figure 1 of this Correction.
We regret any inconvenience caused by these errors and are grateful to Dr Magdalen Lindeberg for bringing them to our attention.
