The fungus Fusarium oxysporum is responsible for causing a destructive wilting disease in numerous crops including banana. To date, only two non-TIR-NBS-LRR genes that confer resistance to F. oxysporum, the I2 and Fom-2 genes from tomato and melon, respectively, have been isolated. We previously identified two partial non-TIR-NBS sequences, designated RGC2 and RGC5, from FOC race 4 resistant banana, Musa acuminata ssp. malaccensis. In the present study, we have isolated and characterized the… CONTINUE READING
