Effectors of biotrophic fungal plant pathogens

Gan, Pamela H P; Rafiqi, Maryam; Hardham, Adrienne R; Dodds, Peter N

Description

Plant pathogenic biotrophic fungi are able to grow within living plant tissue due to the action of secreted pathogen proteins known as effectors that alter the response of plant cells to pathogens. The discovery and identification of these proteins has greatly expanded with the sequencing and annotation of fungal pathogen genomes. Studies to characterise effector function have revealed that a subset of these secreted pathogen proteins interact with plant proteins within the host cytoplasm. This...[Show more]
