Chromosomal deletion in isolates of Phytophthora infestans correlates with virulence on R3, R10, and R11 potato lines.

In Phytophthora infestans, a cluster of three dominant avirulence genes is located on the distal part of linkage group VIII. In a mapping population from a cross between two Dutch field isolates, probe M5.1, derived from an amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) marker linked to the Avr3-Avr10-Avr11 cluster, hybridized only to DNA from the parent and… CONTINUE READING
