Magnaporthe grisea, the causal agent of rice blast disease, differentiates a specialized infection structure called an appressorium that is crucial for host plant penetration. Previously, it was found that cAMP regulates appressorium formation. To further understand the cellular mechanisms involved in appressorium formation, we have cloned a gene (MAC1) encoding adenylate cyclase, a membrane-bound enzyme that catalyzes the production of cAMP from ATP, by using a polymerase chain reaction-based… CONTINUE READING
