A translocation signal for delivery of oomycete effector proteins into host plant cells
Bacterial, oomycete and fungal plant pathogens establish disease by translocation of effector proteins into host cells, where they may directly manipulate host innate immunity. In bacteria,Expand

Saprolegnia parasitica, an oomycete pathogen with a fishy appetite: new challenges for an old problem
Abstract Water moulds (oomycetes) of the order Saprolegniales, such as Saprolegnia and Aphanomyces species, are responsible for devastating infections on fish in aquaculture, fish farms and hobbyExpand

The impact of the water moulds Saprolegnia diclina and Saprolegnia parasitica on natural ecosystems and the aquaculture industry
Abstract A very large number of diseases in agriculture and aquaculture are caused by fungal-like micro-organisms, classified as Oomycetes or water moulds. Collectively, oomycetes represent a hugeExpand
