Ancient origin of elicitin gene clusters in Phytophthora genomes

Jiang, Rays H Y; Tyler, Brett M; Whisson, Stephen C; Hardham, Adrienne R; Govers, Francine


The genus Phytophthora belongs to the oomycetes in the eukaryotic stramenopile lineage and is comprised of over 65 species that are all destructive plant pathogens on a wide range of dicotyledons. Phytophthora produces elicitins (ELIs), a group of extracellular elicitor proteins that cause a hypersensitive response in tobacco. Database mining revealed several new classes of elicitin-like (ELL) sequences with diverse elicitin domains in Phytophthora infestans, Phytophthora sojae, Phytophthora...[Show more]
