The study of transcriptional regulation of necrotrophic effector genes ToxA and Tox3 in the wheat pathogen Parastagonospora nodorum
Parastagonospora nodorum (P. nodorum) is an important
necrotrophic fungus on wheat causing significant yield losses in
Australia per annum. It is now widely recognized that P. nodorum
causes disease by secreting necrotrophic effectors (NEs) which
induce necrosis on susceptible wheat leaves through an inverse
gene for gene manner. Two of the NEs described are ToxA and Tox3.
Previous reports have shown that ToxA and Tox3 are highly
upregulated during infection....[Show more]
