The role of effectors of biotrophic and hemibiotrophic fungi in infection

Koeck, Markus; Hardham, Adrienne R; Dodds, Peter N


Biotrophic and hemibiotrophic fungi are successful groups of plant pathogens that require living plant tissue to survive and complete their life cycle. Members of these groups include the rust fungi and powdery mildews and species in the Ustilago, Cladosporium and Magnaporthe genera. Collectively, they represent some of the most destructive plant parasites, causing huge economic losses and threatening global food security. During plant infection, pathogens synthesize and secrete effector...[Show more]
