Botrytis cinerea, a fungus that causes diseases in over 200 plant species, secretes a number of endopolygalacturonases that have been suggested to be involved in pathogenesis. However, so far the corresponding genes have not been isolated from this fungus. We cloned Bcpg1, encoding endopolygalacturonase, with the pgaII gene from Aspergillus niger as a heterologous probe. The Bcpg1 gene is expressed to similar levels in liquid cultures of B. cinerea containing either 1% polygalacturonic acid or… CONTINUE READING
