RPW8.1 Gene Boosts Pattern-Triggered Immunity against Multiple Pathogens

13:00 EDT 2 Aug 2017 | ISAAA

The Arabidopsis gene RESISTANCE TO POWDERY MILDEW8.1 (RPW8.1) confers resistance to virulent fungal pathogens. However, the underlying mechanism remains unclear. Yan Li and a team of researchers from Sichuan Agricultural University studied the gene by ectopic expression of RPW8.1 in Arabidopsis and rice. This boosted pattern-triggered immunity (PTI...
