- ... Ripe fruits of pepper (Capsicum annuum) are resistant to the anthracnose fungus, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, whereas unripe-mature fruits are susceptible. A pepper esterase gene (PepEST) that is highly expressed during an incompatible interaction between the ripe fruit of pepper and C. gloeosporioides was previously cloned. Deduced amino acid sequence of PepEST cDNA showed homology to both est ...

- ... The anthracnose fungus, Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, was previously shown to have an incompatible interaction with ripe-red fruit of pepper (Capsicum annuum). However, the fungus had a compatible interaction with unripe-mature-green fruit. Using mRNA differential display, we isolated and characterized a PepCYP gene expressed in the incompatible interaction. The PepCYP gene encodes a protein hom ...
