Polymorphism of the Avr2 gene of oomycete Phytophthora infestans (Mont.) de Bary in the population of Moscow region

The goal of the present study was to investigate the nucleotide sequence polymorphism of the Avr2 virulence gene in the population of P. infestans from Moscow region. The SSCP technique was applied for estimation of this polymorphism. As a result, the Avr2 gene was shown to have a high degree of polymorphism of the primary structure. In particular, seven… CONTINUE READING
