- ... The tomato Cf‐9 gene encodes a membrane‐anchored glycoprotein that imparts race‐specific resistance against the tomato leaf mould fungus Cladosporium fulvum in response to the avirulence protein Avr9. Although the N‐terminal half of the extracellular leucine‐rich repeat (eLRR) domain of the Cf‐9 protein determines its specificity for Avr9, the C‐terminal half, including its small cytosolic domain, ...

- ... Members of the Fusarium solani species complex (FSSC) are capable of causing disease in many agriculturally important crops. The genomes of some of these fungi include supernumerary chromosomes that are dispensable and encode host‐specific virulence factors. In addition to genomics, this review summarizes the known molecular mechanisms utilized by members of the FSSC in establishing disease. TAXON ...
