The Major Specificity-Determining Amino Acids of the Tomato Cf-9 Disease Resistance Protein Are at Hypervariable Solvent-Exposed Positions in the Central Leucine-Rich Repeats

Wulff, Brande; Heese, Antje; Tomlinson-Buhot, Laurence; Jones, David; de la Pena, Marcos; Jones, Jonathan D G


The interaction between tomato and the leaf mold pathogen Cladosporium fulvum is controlled in a gene-for-gene manner by plant Cf genes that encode membrane-anchored extraeytoplasmic leucine-rich repeat (LRR) glycoproteins, which confer recognition of their cognate fungal avirulence (Avr) proteins. Cf-9 and Cf-4 are two such proteins that are 91% identical yet recognize the sequence-unrelated fungal avirulence determinants Avr9 and Avr4, respectively. As shown previously, Cf-4 specificity is...[Show more]
