Description

Pearl millet leaf blast is caused by Magnaporthe grisea (Anamorph, Pyricularia grisea) has been recently emerged as devastating disease with economic significance in India. It is well-known that host plant resistance is the most economical strategy to effectively manage this disease; hence, identification of resistance sources for blast disease is important to incorporate resistance genes into elite breeding lines. On the other hand, fungal cell wall is a multi-layered, in which chitin and glucan are the major polysaccharide constituents (Figure 1). In this view, chitinases and glucanases gain significant attention as antifungal enzymes.
