The rice blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea develops specialized infection structures known as appressoria, which develop enormous turgor pressure to bring about plant infection. Turgor is generated by accumulation of compatible solutes, including glycerol, which is synthesized in large quantities in the appressorium. Glycogen, trehalose and lipids represent the most abundant storage products in M. grisea conidia. Trehalose and glycogen are rapidly degraded during conidial germination and it is known that trehalose synthesis is required for virulence of the fungus. Lipid bodies are transported to the developing appressoria and degraded at the onset of turgor generation, in a process that is cAMP-dependent. A combined biochemical and genetic approach is being used to dissect the process of turgor generation in the rice blast fungus.. ...

Rice suffers dramatic yield losses due to blast pathogen Magnaporthe oryzae. Pseudomonas chlororaphis EA105, a bacterium that was isolated from the rice rhizosphere, inhibits M. oryzae. It was shown previously that pre-treatment of rice with EA105 reduced the size of blast lesions through JA- and ETH-mediated ISR. ABA acts antagonistically towards SA, JA, and ETH signaling, to impede plant defense responses. EA105 may be reducing the virulence of M. oryzae by preventing the pathogen from up-regulating the key ABA biosynthetic gene NCED3 in rice roots, as well as a β-glucosidase likely involved in activating conjugated inactive forms of ABA. However, changes in total ABA concentrations were not apparent, provoking the question of whether ABA concentration is an indicator of ABA signaling and response. In the rice-M. oryzae interaction, ABA plays a dual role in disease severity by increasing plant susceptibility and accelerating pathogenesis in the fungus itself. ABA is biosynthesized by M. oryzae
miR169 is a conserved microRNA (miRNA) family involved in plant development and stress-induced responses. However, how miR169 functions in rice immunity remains unclear. Here we show that miR169 acts as a negative regulator in rice immunity against the blast fungus Magnaporthe oryzae by repressing the expression of Nuclear Factor Y-A (NF-YA) genes. The accumulation of miR169 was significantly increased in a susceptible accession but slightly fluctuated in a resistant accession upon M. oryzae infection. Consistently, the transgenic lines overexpressing miR169a became hyper-susceptible to different M. oryzae strains associated with reduced expression of defense-related genes and lack of hydrogen peroxide accumulation at the infection site. Consequently, the expression of its target genes, the NF-YA family members, was down-regulated by the overexpression of miR169a at either transcriptional or translational level. On the contrary, overexpression of a target mimicry that acts as a sponge to trap miR169a

Magnaporthe oryzae causes disease on an array of important crops such as rice, wheat, barley, finger millet, foxtail millet, and wild grasses [1]. M. oryzae has received considerable attention as the causal agent of rice blast disease [2], which leads to 10-30 % loss of harvest per year [3]. M oryzae is categorized into several host-specific subgroups that are pathogenic on a variety of plants that include Oryza spp., Setaria spp., Triticum spp., Avena spp., Eleusine spp. etc. [1, 4, 5]. As with some fungal pathogens M. oryzae reproduction is predominantly asexual. When environmental conditions are conducive, M. oryzae generates an abundance of asexual clones that rapidly colonize its host. The rapid spread of such asexual pathogens poses a significant threat to global food security, human health and biodiversity [6, 7].. Sexual reproduction for M. oryzae is limited to specific geographic regions such as Yunnan, China and India [8-10]. The shift from sexual to asexual reproduction is considered ...
Arms-race coevolution dramatically impacts the genome of pathogens and plants. Resistance often follows the gene-for-gene model in which plant resistance (R) gene products recognize avirulence (AVR) proteins, a subset of pathogen-secreted virulence proteins known as effectors, to trigger hypersensitive cell death and immunity. Genome-wide analyses indicate that R genes are the most polymorphic class of genes in plants (Clark et al., 2007). Pathogen effectors are also rapidly evolving and in a few cases have been reported in regions with high genome plasticity (Orbach et al., 2000; Gout et al., 2006). However, genome-wide analysis of variation of effector candidate genes in plant pathogenic fungi and genome-wide DNA polymorphism information for the identification of AVRs by association genetics approach are still limited (Armstrong et al., 2005).. Rice blast caused by the ascomycete fungus Magnaporthe oryzae (Couch and Kohn, 2002) is the most devastating fungal disease of rice (Oryza sativa; ...
Using genomic subtraction, we isolated the mating-type genes (Mat1-1 and Mat1-2) of the rice blast fungus, Magnaporthe grisea. Transformation of M. grisea strains of one mating type with a linearized cosmid clone carrying the opposite mating-type gene resulted in many "dual maters," strains that contain both mating-type genes and successfully mate with Mat1-1 and Mat1-2 testers. Dual maters differed in the frequency of production of perithecia in pure culture. Ascospores isolated from these homothallic crosses were either Mat1-1 or Mat1-2, but there were no dual maters. Most conidia from dual maters also had one or the other of the mating-type genes, but not both. Thus, dual maters appear to lose one of the mating-type genes during vegetative growth. The incidence of self-mating in dual maters appears to depend on the co-occurrence of strains with each mating type in vegetative cultures. In rare transformants, the incoming sequences had replaced the resident mating-type gene. Nearly isogenic ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Synthetic studies of salicylaldehyde-type phytotoxins isolated from rice blast fungus. AU - Kiyota, Hiromasa. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - The rice blast fungus Pyricularia oryzae is a causative agent of rice blast decease. P. oryzae produces several salicylaldehyde-type phytotoxins depending on the fermentation method: i.e., pyriculol (1), dihydropyriculol (2) and pyriculone (5) from shaking cultures; and pyriculariol (8) and dihydropyriculariol (9) from aeration and agitation cultures in a soy sauce-sucrose medium. Chemical studies of these phytotoxins including total synthesis, structure-elucidation, biosynthesis and structure-activity relationships are described. The absolute configuration of pyriculol (1) and epipyriculol (3) were established by the total synthesis of possible diastereomers. (R)- Pyricuol (7) has a nature-identical configuration as demonstrated by preparation of both enantiomers from (R)- and (S)-lactate respectively, via [2,3]-Wittig rearrangement and ...
Three transformation systems have been reported for the rice blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea (Parsons et al. 1987 Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 84:4161-4165; Daboussi et al. 1989 Curr. Genet. 15:453-456; Leung et al. 1990 Curr. Genet. 17:409-411). Among these three selection systems, only hygromycin B resistance provides a dominant selection that can be used for any wild type strain. A second dominant selection marker is needed to transform strains that are already hygromycin B resistant.. Bialophos produced by Streptomyces hygroscopicus is a tripeptide consisting of two L- alanine residues and an analogue of glutamic acid called phosphinothricin (PPT). Upon cleavage of bialophos, PPT is released and acts as an inhibitor of glutamine synthesis in plants, and hence functions as a potent herbicide. A gene (bar) coding for PPT acetyltransferase has been isolated from S. hygroscopicus and is widely used as a selective marker for the transformation of higher plants (DeBlock et al. 1987 EMBO J. ...

In this study we identified the L-arabinose-responsive regulator of Pyricularia oryzae that regulates L-arabinose release and catabolism. Previously we identified the Zn2Cys6 transcription factor (TF) AraR that has this role in the Trichocomaceae family (Eurotiales), but is absent in other fungi. Candidate Zn2Cys6 TF genes were selected according to their transcript profiles on L-arabinose. Deletion mutants of these genes were screened for their growth phenotype on L-arabinose. One mutant, named Δara1, was further analyzed. Our analysis demonstrated that Ara1 from P. oryzae is the functional homolog of AraR from A. niger, while sequence analysis did not reveal significant homology between them.
Our observation that hex1Δ infection hyphae are restricted in growth and incapable of advancing blast disease symptoms raised a possibility that these mutant infection hyphae were under some stress that presumably leads to cytolysis and premature death because of failure in septal plugging and membrane resealing.. Earlier studies have presented evidence that nutritional starvation, particularly nitrogen-limiting condition, is one of the key environmental factors that influences M. grisea growth in rice leaves (Lau and Hamer, 1996; Talbot et al., 1997). We therefore tested the growth characteristics of the hex1Δ mutant under conditions of nutrient deprivation (see Methods for details). Contrary to the wild-type strain, the hex1Δ mutant showed severely restricted growth on minimal medium that contained limiting amounts of nitrogen source (Figure 7A). However, under conditions of carbon limitation, hex1Δ mutant showed growth rates and proliferation comparable to the wild type (data not shown). ...

Terpenoids, also known as isoprenoids, are a large class of natural products consisting of isoprene (C5) units. There are two biosynthetic pathways, the mevalonate pathway [MD:M00095] and the non-mevalonate pathway or the MEP/DOXP pathway [MD:M00096], for the terpenoid building blocks: isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) and dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP). The action of prenyltransferases then generates higher-order building blocks: geranyl diphosphate (GPP), farsenyl diphosphate (FPP), and geranylgeranyl diphosphate (GGPP), which are the precursors of monoterpenoids (C10), sesquiterpenoids (C15), and diterpenoids (C20), respectively. Condensation of these building blocks gives rise to the precursors of sterols (C30) and carotenoids (C40). The MEP/DOXP pathway is absent in higher animals and fungi, but in green plants the MEP/DOXP and mevalonate pathways co-exist in separate cellular compartments. The MEP/DOXP pathway, operating in the plastids, is responsible for the formation of essential oil ...
Rice blast is the most devastating disease affecting rice, so this research has considerable implications for global food security," says one of the authors Professor Nick Talbot of The Sainsbury Laboratory. "We think this mechanism applies to other fungi where the process of infection is septin mediated. Most cereal diseases - rusts and mildews for example - involve appressoria. They are a common mechanism so from what we now know you could imagine a treatment that could be very effective," he adds. Lead author Dr Lauren Ryder from The Sainsbury Laboratory adds: "We have to work out how this turgor sensor interacts with downstream components, which is the focus of our next study. We suspect it interacts with proteins in the membrane and it senses when there is a stretch." Dr. Yasin Dagdas, now at the Gregor Mendel Institute in Vienna, Austria adds, "Besides the potential for helping global food security, this study uncovers a fascinating biological innovation that evolved during the ...

Phytopathology 100:S202. The Pi-z(t) gene in rice confers resistance to a wide range of races of the rice blast fungus, Magnaporthe oryzae. The objective of the present study was to identify Pi-z(t) in 131 worldwide rice germplasm using DNA markers and pathogenicity assays. Four simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers (RM527, AP4791, AP5659-1, AP5659-5) closely linked to Pi-z(t) were first used to predict the existence of Pi-z(t) in rice germplasm and results were verified using pathogenicity assays with an avirulent IE1k / two virulent races, IB33 and IB49. A total of 98 germplasm containing one to four SSR alleles for the Pi-z(t) gene was found to be resistant to IE1k and susceptible to IB33 and IB49, suggesting these germplasm contain different Pi-z(t) haplotypes. Eighteen germplasm containing one to four SSR alleles were found to be resistant to all three races, suggesting the presence of other R gene(s) in addition to Pi-z(t). Five germplasm containing three to four SSR alleles were found to ...

Host alkalinization drives virulence in fungal pathogens.. During infection, fungal pathogens induce alkalinization of the surrounding host tissue through regulated release of ammonia and, in certain phytopathogens, by secreting small regulatory peptides that mimic plant RALFs (left panel). The resulting increase in extracellular pH activates the fungal IG MAPK cascade, likely via modulation of pHi, to trigger phosphorylation of the IG MAPK and morphogenetic transition towards infectious growth (right panel). Yellow color denotes acidic pH, while purple denotes neutral to alkaline pH. IG, invasive growth; MAPK, mitogen-activated protein kinase; pHi, intracellular pH; RALF, Rapid ALkalinizing Factor.. ...

is initiated by conidial attachment on host surfaces followed by conidial germination. Via recognition of physical cues on the rice surface, such as hydrophobicity and surface hardness, emerging germ tubes initiate formation of a specialized infection structure, called the appressorium, within 4-6 hours (Hamer and Talbot, 1998; Howard and Valent, 1996). The appressorium is a dome-shaped cell that enables the fungus to penetrate the rice leaf surface. Enormous turgor pressure (8 MPa) builds up inside the melanized appressorium due to high glycerol concentration, which drives penetration of the plant surface. After successful infection of plant tissues, visible symptoms appear rapidly. Over two decades of research has unequivocally established the involvement of several signaling pathways, including the cyclic AMP-dependent (Adachi and Hamer, 1998; Lee and Dean, 1993; Mitchell and Dean, 1995; Xu and Hamer, 1996), calcium-dependent (Choi et al., 2009a, 2009b; Liu and Kolattukudy, 1999; Nguyen et ...
