Abstract

Fungal pathogens secrete effector proteins to target and manipulate host plants for successful infection. They primarily function as virulence factors but during co-evolution plants have evolved resistance proteins to recognize them resulting in effector-triggered immunity (ETI). Successful pathogens, in turn, evolved additional effectors to evade recognition or to suppress ETI resulting in host susceptibility. In this study we mined the genomes of Cladosporium fulvum, Mycosphaerella graminicola and M. fijiensis and identified 289, 266 and 180 SSPs, respectively, that represent a common feature of effector proteins (
