The interaction of avirulence and resistance gene products in flax rust disease - providing advances in rust research

Catanzariti, Ann-Maree; Dodds, Peter N; Ellis, Jeffrey G; Staskawicz, B J


Pathogenic rust fungi constitute a major disease threat to agriculture, but their obligate parasitic lifestyle makes them difficult to study. Research on the model flax rust disease system has contributed greatly to our knowledge of rust infection and, in particular, the mechanisms of rust resistance and susceptibility controlled by resistance (R) genes in the host and avirulence (Avr) genes in the pathogen. Twenty flax R genes have been isolated and encode cytoplasmic proteins with...[Show more]
