Identification of host proteins targeted by the flax rust effector protein AvrL567

Koeck, Markus


The flax rust fungus (Melampsora lini) and its flax host (Linum usitatissimum) have served as a successful model system for rust infection for many years. The experiments described in this thesis aim to identify cellular targets of the two M. lini effector proteins AvrL567 and AvrM and elucidate the function of these targets. To identify targets of the effector proteins, Yeast-2-Hybrid (Y2H) screens were performed with cDNA from rust infected flax leaves. This approach allowed for the...[Show more]
