Strategies for wheat stripe rust pathogenicity identified by "omics" technologies

Garnica Moreno, Diana Patricia

Description

Stripe rust is a major constraint to wheat production worldwide. The causal agent is the fungus Puccinia striiformis f.sp. tritici (Pst). During infection, the fungus creates a specialized cellular structure within host cells called the haustorium which allows Pst to obtain the nutrients necessary for development and reproduction. The haustorium is also thought to secrete virulence molecules called 'effectors', which are suspected to manipulate the physiological and immune responses of host...[Show more]
