Higher plants possess large multigene families encoding secreted class III peroxidase (Prx) proteins. In barley, two Prx cDNAs encoding HvPrx07 and HvPrx08 have been isolated and characterized to some extent with respect to a resistance-mediating function upon attack by the powdery-mildew fungus Blumeria graminis f.sp. hordei (Bgh). Here we present evidence for the tissue-specific accumulation of a new Prx mRNA, HvPrx40, in Bgh-attacked epidermis of barley (Hordeum vulgare). The encoded protein… CONTINUE READING
