Mycosphaerella graminicola is a dimorphic fungus which causes Septoria tritici leaf blotch. This report describes the examination of the role of several components of the Pmk1p/Fus3p mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signalling pathway in the development of this species. The genes encoding the MAPK kinase kinase MgSte11p and the MAPK kinase MgSte7p were found to be indispensible for pathogenicity while the deletion of the gene encoding the proposed scaffold protein MgSte50p led to a… CONTINUE READING
