Signal transduction in the barley powdery mildew fungus

Abstract:

Barley powdery mildew disease is caused by the highly specialised phytopathogenic fungus, Blumeria graminis f.sp. hordei. Disease is spread prolifically by the production of asexual conidia. Following contact with the barley leaf surface, a short, primary germ tube (PGT) emerges, followed by elaboration of a second-formed germ tube, the appressorial germ tube (AGT). This second-formed germ tube elongates, swells and hooks to form an appressorium, which allows direct pene...
