(1)The biotrophic fungus Ustilago maydis causes the smut disease of maize. The interaction with its host and induction of characteristic tumors are governed largely by secreted effectors whose function is mostly unknown. To identify effectors with a prominent role in virulence, we used RNA-seq and found that the gene sta1 is upregulated during early stages of infection. (2)We characterized Sta1 by comparative genomics, reverse genetics, protein localization, stress assays and microscopy.doi:10.1111/nph.16508 pmid:32112567 fatcat:fomiqc3bqncnxbv6mhf4ancefi
