Abstract

Plasmodiophora brassicae is an obligate biotrophic pathogenic protist responsible for clubroot, a root gall disease of Brassicaceae species. In addition to the reference genome of the P. brassicae European e3 isolate and the draft genomes of Canadian or Chinese isolates, we present the genome of eH, a second European isolate. Refinement of the annotation of the eH genome led to the identification of the mitochondrial genome sequence, which was found to be bigger than that of Spongospora subterranea, another plant parasitic Plasmodiophorid phylogenetically related to P. brassicae. New pathways were also predicted, such as those for the synthesis of spermidine, a polyamine up-regulated in clubbed regions of roots. A P. brassicae pathway genome database was created to facilitate the functional study of metabolic pathways in transcriptomics approaches. These available tools can help in our understanding of the regulation of P. brassicae metabolism during infection and in response to diverse constraints.
