Recognition And Signal Transduction In The Expression Of Phytophthora Resistance In Soybean [Glycine Max (L) Merr] , Hongyu Gao
Retrospective Theses and Dissertations
Phytophthora sojae, a hemibiotrophic oomycete, is the causal pathogen of stem and root rot disease of soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr). The annual soybean yield loss suffered from this disease is valued at about 300 million dollars. A series of single Rps genes protect soybean from the root and stem rot disease. In the last two decades Rps1-k has been the most stable and widely used Phytophthora resistance gene in the major soybean-producing regions of the United States;Two classes of CC-NB-LRR-type Rps1-k genes were isolated from the Rps1-k locus. Representative members from each gene class were expressed in transgenic ...
