R/Avr gene expression study of Rpi-vnt1.1 transgenic potato resistant to the Phytophthora infestans clonal lineage EC-1

Abstract

The Avr avirulence gene of Phytophthora infestans and R gene of the potato are the genetic components of the gene-for-gene interaction resulting in host plant resistance. This effector-triggered immunity has been recently exploited to generate extreme resistance to late blight in potato by genetic engineering. The choice of the R genes, their number forming… (More)
