The invention relates to a new gene that produces a protein which is capable of inferring oomycete resistance, more preferably resistance to Phytophthora infestans when expressed in a plant, wherein said nucleotide sequence encodes a protein that is encoded by the protein produced by the nucleotide sequence of FIG. 10 or the protein depicted in FIG. 11 or a nucleotide sequence that codes for a protein that has an identity of at least 95% with said protein produced by the nucleotide sequence of FIG. 10 or the protein depicted in FIG. 11. The invention also relates to a method for providing at least partial resistance or increasing resistance in a plant against an oomycete infection comprising providing a plant or a part thereof with a nucleotide sequence as indicated above or a functional fragment thereof, preferably wherein said plant is a plant from the Solanaceae family, more preferably Solanum tuberosum.
