The haustorium is a distinguishing feature of biotrophic plant pathogens. Several highly diverged -pathogen classes have independently evolved haustoria, suggesting that they represent an effective adaptation for growing within living plant tissue. Despite their clear importance in biotrophy, they have been difficult to study due to the close association of biotrophic pathogens with their host and the inability to produce haustoria in vitro. These drawbacks have been circumvented in the study...[Show more]
