At2g19990: PR-1-LIKE (PATHOGENESIS-RELATED PROTEIN-1-LIKE)

Encodes a PR-1-like protein homolog that is differentially expressed in resistant compared to susceptible cultivars by powdery mildew infection. The deduced amino acid sequence has 24 amino acids comprising the signal peptide and 140 amino acids of the mature peptide (15 kDa). Northern blot analysis showed accumulation of the corresponding mRNA 12 h after inoculation of resistant barley cultivars with Erysiphe graminis. Though the Genbank record for the cDNA associated to this gene model is called 'PR-1', the sequence actually corresponds to PR-1-like. Expression of this gene is not salicylic-acid responsive.
