The barley pathogen Rhynchosporium commune secretes necrosis-inducing proteins NIP1, NIP2, and NIP3. Expression analysis revealed that NIP1 transcripts appear to be present in fungal spores already, whereas NIP2 and NIP3 are synthesized after inoculation of host plants. To assess the contribution of the three effector proteins to disease development,(More)
DNA adenine methyltransferase (Dam methylase) has been crosslinked with its cofactor S-adenosyl methionine (AdoMet) by UV irradiation. About 3% of the enzyme was radioactively labelled after the crosslinking reaction performed either with (methyl-3H)-AdoMet or with (carboxy-14C)-AdoMet. Radiolabelled peptides were purified after trypsinolysis by high(More)
Highly purified DNA-adenine methyltransferase was irradiated in the presence of different concentrations of radiolabelled S-adenosyl-methionine (AdoMet) with a conventional Mineralight UV-lamp from several minutes up to 1 h while incubating in ice. Incorporation of radioactivity was monitored by electrophoresis of the crosslink between S-adenosyl-methionine(More)
