We examined the localization of probe-accessible chitin in Magnaporthe oryzae, which causes rice blast disease, during the early infection process and the functions of two genes encoding a chitin-binding domain (ChBD). Invasive hyphae in the first...

The rice blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae produces appressoria during the infection of a host. In M. oryzae, the appressorium formation-related gene CBP1 (Chitin Binding Protein 1) is specifi cally expressed during the early stage of appressorium d...

A simple method was established to prepare DNA from fungal mycelia cultured on an agar plate. The fungi tested successfully with this method contained Zygomycetes, Ascomycetes, Basidiomycetes, and Oomycetes. This method did not require any time-co...

The rice blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea differentiates appressoria, which are required to attack its rice plant host. Clone A26, tentatively named LPL1, was previously found to be homologous to the known lysophospholipase genes from our subtracti...
