The Mak2 MAP kinase signal transduction pathway is required for pathogenicity in Stagonospora nodorum

Solomon, Peter; Waters, Ormonde D. C.; Simmonds, Joanne; Cooper, Richard M; Oliver, Richard Peter


A gene encoding a mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) putatively orthologous to Pmk1 from Magnaporthe grisea was cloned and characterised from the wheat glume blotch pathogen Stagonospora nodorum. Protein sequence alignments showed the cloned gene, Mak2, is closely related to homologues from other dothideomycete fungi. Expression studies revealed Mak2 is up-regulated during in vitro growth upon nitrogen starvation but is not sensitive to carbon starvation or osmotic stress. Transcript...[Show more]
