Successful host colonization by necrotrophic plant pathogens requires the induction of plant cell death to provide the nutrients needed for infection establishment and progression. We have cloned two genes encoding necrosis and ethylene-inducing peptides from Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, which we named SsNep1 and SsNep2. The peptides encoded by these genes induce necrosis when expressed transiently in tobacco leaves. SsNep1 is expressed at a very low level relative to SsNep2 during infection. The… CONTINUE READING
