Phytophthora nicotianae transformants lacking dynein light chain 1 produce non-flagellate zoospores

Narayan, Reena D; Blackman, Leila M; Shan, Weixing; Hardham, Adrienne R


Biflagellate zoospores of the highly destructive plant pathogens in the genus Phytophthora are responsible for the initiation of infection of host plants. Zoospore motility is a critical component of the infection process because it allows zoospores to actively target suitable infection sites on potential hosts. Flagellar assembly and function in eukaryotes depends on a number of dynein-based molecular motors that facilitate retrograde intraflagellar transport and sliding of adjacent...[Show more]
