MAGGY is a gypsy-like retrotransposon isolated from the plant pathogenic fungus Magnaporthe grisea. The ability of various stresses to activate MAGGY was tested in the original and in a heterologous host (Colletotrichum lagenarium), using β-glucuronidase (GUS) as a reporter. The MAGGY promoter was activated in M. grisea by either heat shock, copper sulfate, or oxidative stress, but not by the antifungal substance p-coumaric acid. Transcriptional up-regulation of MAGGY RNA was also observed… CONTINUE READING
