RXLR effector reservoir in two Phytophthora species is dominated by a single rapidly evolving superfamily with more than 700 members
Pathogens secrete effector molecules that facilitate the infection of their hosts. A number of effectors identified in plant pathogenic Phytophthora species possess N-terminal motifs (RXLR-dEER)Expand

Expressed sequence tags from phytophthora sojae reveal genes specific to development and infection.
Six unique expressed sequence tag (EST) libraries were generated from four developmental stages of Phytophthora sojae P6497. RNA was extracted from mycelia, swimming zoospores, germinating cysts, andExpand
