Victoria blight of oats is caused by the fungus Cochliobolus victoriae. This fungus is pathogenic due to its ability to produce the host-selective toxin victorin. We previously identified a 100-kD protein that binds victorin in vivo only in susceptible genotypes and a 15-kD protein that binds victorin in vivo in both susceptible and resistant genotypes. Recently, we determined that the oat 100-kD victorin binding protein is the P protein of the glycine decarboxylase complex (GDC). In this study… CONTINUE READING
