Highly iprodione- and fludioxonil-resistant field and laboratory isolates of A. brassicicola were found to be either moderately sensitive or tolerant to osmotic stress. AbNIK1, a two-component histidine kinase gene, was isolated from a fungicide-sensitive strain. The predicted protein possessed the six tandem amino acid repeats at the N-terminal end, which is a landmark of osmosensor histidine kinases from filamentous fungi. A comparison of the nucleic acid sequences of the AbNIK1 gene from… CONTINUE READING
