Biflagellate zoospores are the major infective agents that initiate plant infection for most Phytophthora species. Once released from sporangia, zoospores swim and use a number of tactic responses to actively target host tissues. However, the molecular mechanisms controlling zoospore development and behaviour are largely unknown. Previous studies have shown that the PnPMA1 gene is highly expressed in zoospores and germinated cysts of Phytophthora parasitica and encodes an atypical plasma...[Show more]
