More than 30 genes have been characterized from different plant species that provide resistance to a variety of different pathogen and pest species. The structures of most are consistent with a role in pathogen recognition and defense response signaling. Resistance genes are very abundant in plant genomes and most belong to tightly linked gene families. Evolution of R genes is driven by selection on allelic variation created by mutation and re-assorted by recombination between alleles and… CONTINUE READING
