Transient fusion and selective secretion of vesicle proteins in Phytophthora nicotianae zoospores

Zhang, Wei Wei; Blackman, Leila M; Hardham, Adrienne R


Secretion of pathogen proteins is crucial for the establishment of disease in animals and plants. Typically, early interactions between host and pathogen trigger regulated secretion of pathogenicity factors that function in pathogen adhesion and host penetration. During the onset of plant infection by spores of the Oomycete, Phytophthora nicotianae, proteins are secreted from three types of cortical vesicles. Following induction of spore encystment, two vesicle types undergo full fusion,...[Show more]
