The transcription factor ChAP1 of the fungal pathogen of maize, Cochliobolus heterostrophus, responds to oxidative stress by migration to the nucleus and activation of antioxidant genes. Phenolic and related compounds found naturally in the host also trigger nuclear localization of ChAP1, but only slight upregulation of some antioxidant genes. ChAP1 thus senses phenolic compounds without triggering a strong antioxidant response. We therefore searched for genes whose expression is regulated by… CONTINUE READING
