Transcriptome and metabolite profiling the infection cycle of Zymoseptoria tritici on wheat (Triticum aestivum) reveals a biphasic interaction with plant immunity involving differential pathogen chromosomal contributions, and a variation on the hemi-biotrophic lifestyle definition. (a) Fungal PAMP chitin is recognized by the host receptors Chitin Elicitor Binding Protein (CEBiP) and Chitin Elicitor Receptor Kinase 1 (CERK1), triggering MAP kinase cascades and immune activation. Molecular mechanisms underlying morphogenesis during infection process of Z. tritici are poorly understood. The lifestyle of the fungus is characterised by a symptomless latent period which typically lasts 10– 14 days post-infection (dpi) (Eyal et al.,1987). [16] There is a long latent period of up to two weeks following infection before symptoms develop. This article incorporates CC-BY-2.5 text from references[8][10][12][21]. The nature and importance of these glycosylations to OsCEBiP function are currently unknown. This recently emerged host–pathogen system provides a rare opportunity to investigate the evolutionary processes shaping the genome of an emerging pathogen. 79, 84–88. The lifecycle of Z. triticicomprises an asymptomatic phase, followed by the necrotic phase of infection and spore dispersal. PLoS ONE 8:e81606. [18] Under appropriate environmental conditions, lesions are able to develop on infected leaves, and soon pycnidia begin to develop on the lesions. (d) The Necrosis and Ethylene-Inducing Peptide 1 (NEP1)-like effector protein MgNLP has an unknown function(s) during wheat infection, but triggers cell death in dicotyledonous plants. (lower image) Typical response to Zymoseptoria tritici on a primary leaf of a highly resistant wheat cultivar. (2009). This highlights the need for development of novel strategies in breeding for Z. tritici resistance. Primary inoculum requires wet conditions and cool temperatures of 50-68 °F.

The fungus Zymoseptoria tritici is a strictly apoplastic, host-specific pathogen of wheat leaves and causal agent of septoria tritici blotch (STB) disease. On the pathogen side of the interaction, we consolidate evidence from recent bioinformatic, transcriptomic and proteomic studies that begin to explain the contribution of Z. tritici effector proteins to the biphasic lifestyle of the fungus. From the pycnidia, conidiospores, the asexual spores of the fungus, are released. Phytopathology 92, 439–445. Functional characterisation of other candidate phase-specific Z. tritici effectors identified through bioinformatic, proteomic and genome-wide transcriptomic analyses (do Amaral et al., 2012; Gohari et al., 2015; Rudd et al., 2015) is currently underway in several laboratories around the globe including ours, and appears a rich source of future discoveries.

Both authors agree to be accountable for all aspects of the manuscript in ensuring that questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved. The Z. tritici lifestyle is described as hemibiotrophic, with two distinct phases of infection.

Z. tritici requires more than 24 hours of wetness and is most destructive between 50 and 68 degrees F. However, the identity of AvrStb6 is not yet known and so the frequency of this avirulence gene in current Z. tritici field populations remains to be determined. Appl. FIGURE 1. The ascomycete fungus Zymoseptoria tritici causes septoria tritici blotch, a foliar disease of wheat that poses a significant threat to global food production. The battle that exists in the apoplastic space for chitin binding goes some way to determining the overall outcome of the Z. tritici-wheat interaction. [16] Pseudomonads are also a promising bacterial control option. Septoria tritici is the most important wheat disease in the UK. This includes the discovery of chitin-binding proteins in the Z. tritici secretome, which contribute to evasion of immune surveillance by this pathogen, and the possible existence of ‘necrotrophic’ effectors from Z. tritici, which may actively stimulate host recognition in a manner similar to related necrotrophic fungal pathogens. Zymoseptoria tritici (formerly known as Mycosphaerella graminicola) is a globally-distributed pathogen that causes Septoria tritici leaf blotch on wheat. Genet. We would like to thank Kim E. Hammond-Kosack for critical reading of this manuscript and helpful comments. Therefore, MgNLP may be functionally redundant and its exact function during wheat infection remains elusive (Figure 1). This results in arrest of pathogen growth via an unknown mechanism that does not involve HR. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0081606, Keywords: Septoria tritici blotch (STB), Mycosphaerella graminicola, effector, pathogen-associated molecular pattern (PAMP), chitin, disease resistance, PAMP-triggered immunity (PTI), wheat, Citation: Kettles GJ and Kanyuka K (2016) Dissecting the Molecular Interactions between Wheat and the Fungal Pathogen Zymoseptoria tritici.

The asexual life cycle continues with the transfer of pycnidiospores through the crop canopy via rain splash, explaining why STB thrives so well in temperate and humid climates. Acad. Only two cultivars (Graham and KWS Siskin) scored as high as 7. Mol. Understanding of how plants perceive β-glucans is immature in comparison to perception of chitin. Septoria curtisiana Sacc., (1884)[2] Investigating the circadian clock in Zymoseptoria tritici – Anna Tiley. Here, we performed a deep hierarchical sampling in a 25 single experimental wheat field infected by the major fungal pathogen Zymoseptoria tritici. Septoria graminum Desm., (1843) [17] Such a switch from biotrophic to necrotrophic growth at the end of a long latent period is an unusual characteristic shared by most fungi in the genus Mycosphaerella. The implementation of an effector-directed breeding program against Ptr (discussed above) is a prime example of how fundamental research can lead to low-cost, time-saving tools for the benefit of agriculture. In this study, we have investigated the role of ZtVf1 gene encoding a transcription factor belonging to C2-H2 subfamily. Zymoseptoria tritici can survive for several years in the form of vegetative strands (mycelium), pycnidia and/or perithecia in wheat residues. ", This page was last edited on 8 January 2021, at 10:30. Ascospores are wind-dispersed and eventually land on the leaves of a … [12] The period between infection and formation of sporulating structures (latent period) was estimated to be 20.35 ± 4.15 days for Zymoseptoria tritici in Northern Germany and decreased with increasing temperature. Of particular importance to fungal-plant interactions (including the Z. tritici – wheat interaction) is the PAMP chitin, which represents one of the major components of fungal cell walls and is naturally absent in plants (Sánchez-Vallet et al., 2014). The pathogen is not seedborne. Zymoseptoria tritici can survive for several years in the form of vegetative strands (mycelium), pycnidia and/or perithecia in wheat residues. It is a wheat plant pathogen causing septoria leaf blotch that is difficult to control due to resistance to multiple fungicides. The Ecp6 effector from the fungus Cladosporium fulvum that causes the tomato leaf mold disease (Bolton et al., 2008) was demonstrated to have ultrahigh chitin-binding affinity via cooperation of two out of its three lysin motifs (LysM) (de Jonge et al., 2010).

Based on a total of five telomere-to-telomere genomes, we constructed a pangenome for the species and identified a core set of 9149 genes. Septoria tritici Mycosphaerella graminicola Dimorphic fungi Fatty acids Cytochrome P450 CYP51 abstract Septoria tritici blotch (STB) caused by the Ascomycete fungus Zymoseptoria tritici is one of the most eco-nomically damaging diseases of wheat worldwide. 30 Furthermore, chitin is likely not the only PAMP present in the apoplastic space during Z. tritici infection. FEMS Microbiol. At least 20 distinct genetic loci have been identified (Stb loci) that confer qualitative, often isolate-specific resistance to Z. tritici. [8] Endemic descendants of the progenitor of Zymoseptoria tritici are still found on wild grasses in the Middle East; however these "wild" pathogens show a broader host range than the "domesticated" wheat pathogen.

Phenotypic and genetic analysis of the Triticum monococcum–Mycosphaerella graminicola interaction. [12], A surprising feature of the Zymoseptoria tritici genome compared to other sequenced plant pathogens was that it contained very few genes for enzymes that break down plant cell walls, which was more similar to endophytes than to pathogens. (2011). That said, a number of fungal genes encoding secreted cutinases and lipases were found to be significantly up-regulated during the asymptomatic phase, and it has been proposed that host lipids (e.g., leaf surface waxes) may also be utilized (Rudd et al., 2015). OsCEBiP recognizes and binds chitin via its extracellular LysM-containing domain but contains no intracellular signaling domain, and is therefore unable to initiate immune signaling alone. Plant Pathol. Following inoculation onto the leaf surface by rain splash, spores germinate and the fungus invades exclusively through the stomata before undergoing a prolonged asymptomatic phase of very slow hyphal growth in the apoplastic space between mesophyll cells. Zymoseptoria tritici has resistance to multiple fungicides, because it has number of substitutions of CYP51. Proc. Mol.

This phase has also often been refered to as ‘biotrophic.’ Recent transcriptomic and metabolic profiling of Z. tritici infection of susceptible wheat, however, indicated that the fungus’ own lipids and fatty acids are most likely used as the main energy sources during this phase.

UC Davis Agron. introduced a new combination for this species: Zymoseptoria tritici (Desm.) Successful immune activation following PAMP elicitation leads to PAMP-triggered immunity (PTI) (Jones and Dangl, 2006).

The principle function of the immune system is to recognize non-self molecules that betray the presence of an invader. (c) Stb gene-specified resistance presumably triggered following recognition of cognate fungal effectors (AvrStb) secreted into the apoplast. The functional characterisation of several of the known Stb genes would greatly increase fundamental understanding of the wheat immune system and may facilitate the identification of novel candidate resistance genes using bioinformatic approaches. Bioinformatics-based genome-wide approaches have identified several hundred Z. tritici genes encoding candidate secreted proteins that bear hallmarks of effectors identified from other pathosystems, i.e., small, cysteine rich, and expressed in planta (do Amaral et al., 2012; Gohari et al., 2015). Plant Pathol. It would be interesting to evaluate the usefulness of Stb16q and TmStb1 for potentially achieving durable broad-spectrum resistance to Z. tritici in bread wheat as well as to explore further the full potential of synthetic hexaploid wheat and wild relatives of wheat as novel sources of resistance to Z. tritici. An estimated $275 million is lost per year in the US due to this disease. doi: 10.1094/MPMI-22-7-0790. Molecular mapping of Stb1, a potentially durable gene for resistance to Septoria tritici blotch in wheat. Nonetheless, progress that has been made give reason to be optimistic that application of more advanced (and rapid) molecular tools will allow fuller understanding of STB disease development, taking it on par with model pathogens. In comprehensive worldwide wheat germplasm screening programs, a number of exotic as well as synthetic wheat genotypes have been identified as good sources of STB resistance. Plant Pathol. Multi-functional LysM-domain containing effector Mg3LysM scavenges chitin to suppress immunity and protects fungal hyphae from wheat chitinases. Zymoseptoria tritici is a difficult fungus to control because populations contain extremely high levels of genetic variability and it has very unusual biology for a pathogen. Simultaneous editing of three homoeoalleles in hexaploid bread wheat confers heritable resistance to powdery mildew. It is not unreasonable to assume that pathogen effectors such as Mg3LysM, under high evolutionary pressure, might be optimized for chitin binding affinity. Acad. Its closely related ... of life-cycle-specific expression were found in other CAZy families (supplementary fig. In addition to pycnidia, pseudothecia also develop within these lesions. In addition, a large number of quantitative trait loci (QTL), which make smaller contributions to the Z. tritici resistance phenotype, have been mapped genetically.
