Endopolygalacturonases (endoPGs) of some phytopathogens are virulent factors for dicots. To investigate the function of the endoPG of Magnaporthe oryzae, a disruption mutant of MGG_08938, the homolog of endoPG found in the genome database of this fungus, was generated. The pathogenicity, mycelial growth, and appressorium formation of this mutant were comparable with those of the wild-type strain; however, the germination of conidia in a highly concentrated suspension of conidia was affected bydoi:10.1111/j.1574-6968.2008.01062.x pmid:18218020 fatcat:7jvfalvr45ewhmcxfaicn4fkpm
