Elucidating the mechanisms of necrotrophic effectors in the Stagonospora nodorum-wheat pathosystem

Du Fall, Lauren Amanda

Description

Stagonospora nodorum is a host-specific necrotrophic pathogen of wheat and the causal agent of Stagonospora nodorum blotch (SNB). Stagonospora nodorum secretes several unique effector proteins that induce chlorosis and necrosis on leaves of susceptible hosts. Several dominant genes in the host confer susceptibility to Stagonospora nodorum effectors in an inverse gene-for-gene manner. The mechanisms underlying effector-induced necrosis are yet to be fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to...[Show more]
