Haustorially Expressed Secreted Proteins from Flax Rust Are Highly Enriched for Avirulence Elicitors

Catanzariti, Ann-Maree; Dodds, Peter N; Lawrence, I; Ayliffe, Michael Anthony; Ellis, Jeffrey G


Rust fungi, obligate biotrophs that cause disease and yield losses in crops such as cereals and soybean (Glycine max), obtain nutrients from the host through haustoria, which are specialized structures that develop within host cells. Resistance of flax (Linum usitatissimum) to flax rust (Melampsora lini) involves the induction of a hypersensitive cell death response at haustoria formation sites, governed by gene-for-gene recognition between host resistance and pathogen avirulence genes.
