A hallmark of biotrophy in many fungal plant pathogens is the formation of a specialized pathogenic structure called the haustorium from infectious hyphae. This is the major parasitic structure, where nutrients are taken up from the host and pathogenicity factors are exported to the host tissue. Obligate biotrophic fungi can typically be cultured in vivo only to a limited extent and do not produce haustoria under these conditions. This has hampered the application of classic molecular biology...[Show more]
