- ... In plants, pathogen defense is initiated by recognition of pathogen‐associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) via plasma membrane‐localized pattern‐recognition receptors (PRRs). Fungal structural cell wall polymers such as branched β‐glucans are essential for infection structure rigidity and pathogenicity, but at the same time represent PAMPs. Kre5 and Kre6 are key enzymes in β‐1,6‐glucan synthesis an ...

- ... Fungal effector–host sensitivity gene interactions play a key role in determining the outcome of septoria nodorum blotch disease (SNB) caused by Parastagonospora nodorum on wheat. The pathosystem is complex and mediated by interaction of multiple fungal necrotrophic effector–host sensitivity gene systems. Three effector sensitivity gene systems are well characterized in this pathosystem; SnToxA–Ts ...
