Appressorium formation is believed to be an important event in establishing a successful interaction between the late blight pathogen, Phytophthora infestans, and its host plants potato and tomato. An understanding of molecular events occurring in appressorium development could suggest new strategies for controlling late blight. We used parallel studies of the transcriptome and proteome to identify genes and proteins that are up-regulated in germinating cysts developing appressoria. As a result… CONTINUE READING
