Identification of a protein from rust fungi transferred from haustoria into infected plant cells.
The formation of haustoria is one of the hallmarks of the interaction of obligate biotrophic fungi with their host plants. In addition to their role in nutrient uptake, it is hypothesized thatExpand

A novel structural effector from rust fungi is capable of fibril formation.
It has been reported that filament-forming surface proteins such as hydrophobins are important virulence determinants in fungi and are secreted during pathogenesis. Such proteins have not yet beenExpand

Host-microbe and microbe-microbe interactions in the evolution of obligate plant parasitism.
Research on obligate biotrophic plant parasites, which reproduce only on living hosts, has revealed a broad diversity of filamentous microbes that have independently acquired complex morphologicalExpand
