A Phytophthora sojae G-Protein α Subunit Is Involved in Chemotaxis to Soybean Isoflavones
ABSTRACT For the soybean pathogen Phytophthora sojae, chemotaxis of zoospores to isoflavones is believed to be critical for recognition of the host and for initiating infection. However, theExpand

GPR11, a Putative Seven-Transmembrane G Protein-Coupled Receptor, Controls Zoospore Development and Virulence of Phytophthora sojae
ABSTRACT G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) represent a large receptor family involved in a broad spectrum of cell signaling. To understand signaling mechanisms mediated by GPCRs in PhytophthoraExpand

PsSAK1, a stress-activated MAP kinase of Phytophthora sojae, is required for zoospore viability and infection of soybean.
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) pathways are universal and evolutionarily conserved signal transduction modules in all eukaryotic cells. In this study, PsSAK1, which encodes aExpand

The PsCZF1 gene encoding a C2H2 zinc finger protein is required for growth, development and pathogenesis in Phytophthora sojae.
The C(2)H(2) zinc finger proteins form one of the largest families of transcriptional regulators in eukaryotes. We identified a Phytophthora sojae C(2)H(2) zinc finger (PsCZF1), that is highlyExpand

The heat shock transcription factor PsHSF1 of Phytophthora sojae is required for oxidative stress tolerance and detoxifying the plant oxidative burst.
In the interaction between plant and microbial pathogens, reactive oxygen species (ROS) rapidly accumulate upon pathogen recognition at the infection site and play a central role in plant defence.Expand

Phylogenic analysis revealed an expanded C₂H₂-homeobox subfamily and expression profiles of C₂H₂ zinc finger gene family in Verticillium dahliae.
C2H2 zinc finger (CZF) proteins are a major class of transcription factors that play crucial roles in fungal growth, development, various stress responses, and virulence. Little genome-wide data isExpand

Quantitative Detection of Pathogen DNA of Verticillium Wilt on Smoke Tree Cotinus coggygria.
Verticillium dahliae is a ubiquitous soilborne fungus and the causal agent of smoke tree vascular wilt, which presents a major threat to the famous "red-leaf" scenery of the Fragrant Hills Park inExpand

Genomewide Transcriptome Profiles Reveal How Bacillus subtilis Lipopeptides Inhibit Microsclerotia Formation in Verticillium dahliae.
Verticillium dahliae is a soilborne fungus and the primary causal agent of vascular wilt diseases worldwide. The fungus produces melanized microsclerotia that are crucially important for the survivalExpand

The Transcription Factor VdHapX Controls Iron Homeostasis and Is Crucial for Virulence in the Vascular Pathogen Verticillium dahliae
This study demonstrated that VdHapX is a conserved protein that mediates adaptation to iron starvation and excesses, affects microsclerotium formation, and is crucial for virulence of V. dahliae.Expand
