Proteinaceous necrotrophic effectors in fungal virulence

Tan, Kar-Chun; Oliver , Richard P; Solomon, Peter; Moffat , Caroline S


The hostpathogen interface can be considered as a biological battlefront. Molecules produced by both the pathogen and the host are critical factors determining the outcome of the interaction. Recent studies have revealed that an increasing number of necrotrophic fungal pathogens produce small proteinaceous effectors that are able to function as virulence factors. These molecules can cause tissue death in host plants that possess dominant sensitivity genes, leading to subsequent pathogen...[Show more]
