Understanding the host response to Uromyces sp., the causal agent of rust in many crop species, is crucial in elucidating the specific biology of rust resistance. In an attempt to unravel the Medicago truncatula–U. striatus interaction, we performed a global analysis of transcription factor (TF) expression in resistant and susceptible accessions of the model plant M. truncatula during infection with U. striatus. For this purpose, an established qPCR platform was applied, consisting of specific… CONTINUE READING
