Challenges and progress towards understanding the role of effectors in plant – fungal interactions

Rafiqi, Maryam; Ellis, Jeffrey G; Ludowici, Victoria A; Hardham, Adrienne R; Dodds, Peter N


Both mutualistic and biotrophic pathogenic fungi rely on living host plants for growth and reproduction and must modify host cell structure and function for successful infection. The deployment of a diverse set of secreted virulence determinants referred to as ‘effectors’, many of which are directly delivered into the host cell, is postulated to be the key to host infection. This review provides a snapshot of the current progress in fungal effector biology. Recent genome sequencing of rust...[Show more]
