Fusarium species are among the most important phytopathogenic and toxigenic fungi. To understand the molecular underpinnings of pathogenicity in the genus Fusarium, we compared the genomes of three phenotypically diverse species: Fusarium graminearum, Fusarium verticillioides and Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici. Our analysis revealed lineage-specific(More)
Papel de enzimas líticas de la pared celular en la patogenicidad de Fusarium oxysporum Fusarium oxysporum es capaz de colonizar a sus plantas huéspedes penetran-do a través de las raices e invadiendo su sistema vascular. Esta especie produce gran variedad de enzimas líticas que depolimerizan todos los componentes de las paredes vegetales, como son la(More)
The tomato vascular wilt pathogen Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici produces an array of pectinolytic enzymes that may contribute to penetration and colonization of the host plant. Here we report the isolation of pg5, encoding a novel extracellular endopolygalacturonase (endoPG) that is highly conserved among different formae speciales of F. oxysporum.(More)
