Structural and phylogenetic analysis of Pto-type disease resistance gene candidates in Hevea brasiliensis

W. Zhai, Zhao, Y., Zhang, L. X., and Li, X. J., Structural and phylogenetic analysis of Pto-type disease resistance gene candidates in Hevea brasiliensis, vol. 13, pp. 4348-4360, 2014.

The tomato Pto gene encodes a serine/threonine kinase (STK) whose molecular characterization has provided valuable insights into the disease resistance mechanism of tomato. Therefore, Pto is considered as a promising candidate for engineering broad-spectrum pathogen resistance in this crop. In this study, a pair of degenerate primers based on conserved subdomains of plant STKs similar to the tomato Pto protein was used to amplify similar sequences in a hevea cultivar (Hevea brasiliensis Muell. Arg).
