Funktionelle Analyse des Ustilago maydis Effektorproteins Tin3 im Gencluster 19A

U. maydis ist ein pilzliches Pflanzenpathogen, das in Mais den sogenannten Maisbeulenbrand auslöst. Die pathogene Entwicklung aller Brandpilze ist an die sexuelle Entwicklung gekoppelt, die durch die Fusion zweier haploider Zellen mit unterschiedlichen Paarungstypen initiiert wird (Bölker et al., 19...
