Characterization of nine Mlo family genes and analysis of their expression against pathogen infections in Vitis flexuosa

  title={Characterization of nine Mlo family genes and analysis of their expression against pathogen infections in Vitis flexuosa},
  author={Md. Zaherul Islam and Hae Keun Yun},
Mildew resistance locus o (Mlo) is a specific seven-transmembrane gene family that confers resistance against several abiotic and biotic stresses in plants. In this study, we identified nine Mlo-like loci,VfMlo-like3243 (Vitis flexuosa powdery-mildew resistance locus o-like3243), VfMlo-like4098, VfMlo-like5057, VfMlo-like6833, VfMlo-like7881, VfMlo-like8120, VfMlo-like14439, VfMlo-like14557, and VfMlo-like18484, which showed differential expression upon transcriptome analysis conducted using… Expand
