To help learn how phytopathogens feed from their hosts, genes for nutrient transporters from the hemibiotrophic potato and tomato pest Phytophthora infestans were annotated. This identified 453 genes from 19 families. Comparisons with a necrotrophic oomycete, Pythium ultimum var. ultimum, and a hemibiotrophic fungus, Magnaporthe oryzae, revealed diversity(More)
X-ray diffraction analysis studies showed that in a mixture of HCl, AcOH, and H2O, hydrolysis of several 3-[3-(1-arylethylcarbamoyl)-4-hydroxy-2-oxo-1,2-dihydroquinolin-1-yl]propanenitriles proceeded by an anomalous pathway to yield 4-hydroxy-1-(2-carboxyethyl)-2-oxo-1,2-dihydroquinoline-3-carboxylic acid. These experiments showed that methylation of the(More)
Molecular genetics approaches in Phytophthora research can be hampered by the limited number of known constitutive promoters for expressing transgenes and the instability of transgene activity. We have therefore characterized genes encoding the cytoplasmic ribosomal proteins of Phytophthora and studied their suitability for expressing transgenes in P.(More)
