Studies of flax rust effector gene expression, and effector protein localisation and interactions
During infection, rust fungi secrete effector proteins that are believed to play important roles in nutrient acquisition and infection facilitation. To increase our understanding of the production and deployment of fungal effectors in the process of plant infection, the main aims of the experiments described in this thesis were to investigate the previously suggested role of the fungal protein SIA2 in effector secretion or uptake, to obtain direct evidence of...[Show more]
