 en Enzymes and fungal virulence


This paper presents a comprehensive literature review of cell wall degrading enzymes (CWDEs). Plant pathogenic fungi secrete extracellular enzymes that are capable of degrading the cell walls of their host plants. These CWDEs may be necessary for penetration of the cell wall barrier, as well as for generation of simple molecules that can be assimilated for growth. Most of these enzymes are substrate-inducible and both specific and global regulators control their expression. CWDE-inhibitors have been isolated from plants and some evidence indicates that they are components of general resistance. @JASEM
