Foatf1, a bZIP transcription factor of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense, is involved in pathogenesis by regulating the oxidative stress responses of Cavendish banana (Musa spp.)
Abstract We characterized Foatf1, a basic leucine zipper (bZIP) transcription factor in Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense race 4 (Foc4), and created a deletion mutant of Foatf1. Foatf1 deletionExpand

The G-protein subunits FGA2 and FGB1 play distinct roles in development and pathogenicity in the banana fungal pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense
Abstract The soil-borne fungus Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense causes banana ( Musa spp.) vascular wilt. Here, we examine the roles of G-protein α and β subunit genes fga2 and fgb1 in F. oxysporumExpand

Fusaric acid is a virulence factor of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense on banana plantlets
Fusaric acid (FA) is highly phytotoxic and causes severe Fusarium oxysporum-induced vascular wilt. However, the molecular mechanisms of FA production in Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cubense (FOC) areExpand
