Molecular cytology of Phytophthora–plant interactions

Hardham, Adrienne R; Blackman, Leila M

Description

Phytophthora diseases cause widespread economic and environmental losses worldwide. Thousands of plant species are susceptible. Disease is typically initiated through the activity of motile, biflagellate zoospores. Plant penetration and colonisation are achieved through the secretion of a diverse range of cell wall-degrading enzymes and effector proteins.
