Isolation and characterization of four genes encoding pyruvate, phosphate dikinase in the oomycete plant pathogen Phytophthora cinnamomi

Marshall, Jerry S; Ashton, Anthony R; Govers, Francine; Hardham, Adrienne R


The oomycete genus Phytophthora contains some of the world's most devastating plant pathogens. We report here the existence in P. cinnamomi of four genes encoding the pyrophosphate-utilizing glycolytic/gluconeogenic enzyme pyruvate, phosphate dikinase (PPDK). The coding regions of the four genes are >99% identical. At least three of the genes comprise a small gene cluster, which may have arisen through recent gene duplication and inversion events. Levels of Pdk mRNA are low in vegetative...[Show more]
