Cell biology of fungal and oomycete infection of plants

Hardham, Adrienne R


In order to infect host plants, fungal and oomycete plant pathogens must overcome highly effective, constitutive physical and chemical barriers to pathogen ingress. They must avoid inducing additional host defences, and they must deploy mechanisms for obtaining from the plant the nutrients they need for growth and reproduction. Successful pathogens employ a range of infection strategies most of which include the key steps of adhesion to the plant surface, location of optimal penetration sites,...[Show more]
