A protein complex formed by Ustilago maydis effectors is essential for virulence

Ustilago maydis is a biotrophic fungal pathogen that causes smut disease in its host plant maize. During colonization, U. maydis secretes effector proteins to suppress plant defense responses and manipulate the host physiology for its own benefit. The majority of these proteins lack functional an...
