Title: Transcription factor AbVf19 induces hydrolytic enzyme genes during pathogenesis in Alternaria brassicicola      
dateReleased:
05-03-2012
description:
Alternaria brassicicola is a successful saprophyte and necrotrophic pathogen with a broad host range. It produces secondary metabolites that marginally affect virulence, in contrast to many A. alternata strains that produce secondary metabolites as host-specific pathogenicity factors. Cell wall-degrading enzymes (CWDEs) have been considered important for pathogenesis, but no CWDEs have been identified as significant virulence factors in A. brassicicola. In this study, we discovered mutants of a gene, AbVf19, which consistently produced smaller lesions than the wild type. The mutants grew slower than the wild type on an axenic medium with pectin as a major carbon source. Gene expression comparisons identified several hydrolytic enzyme-coding genes being down-regulated in the mutant during a late stage of infection. These down-regulated genes comprised a small fraction of genes within each family. Three of these genes had mutants that showed no or little change in virulence. This suggested that each down regulated gene only made a small contribution to virulence, or that their functions were redundant. This study demonstrated the existence and importance of a transcription factor that regulates a suite of genes that are probably important for decomposing and utilizing plant material during the late stage of plant infection. gene expression profile comparisons between wild type and a transcription factor mutant during host infection
