MoBar-A contributes exclusively to hyphae-mediated initiation of blast infection on intact host tissues. a Development of blast infection on intact and injured barley leaves inoculated independently with hyphae harvested from the wild-type, ΔMobar-A, ΔMobar-B, ΔMobar-AMobar-B, ΔMobar-A_Com. and ΔMobar-B_Com. strains. b Development of blast infections on intact and injured barley leaves inoculated independently with drops of spore suspension (5–10 spores/20 μL containing 0.02%v/v Tween20) obtained from the wild-type, ΔMobar-A, ΔMobar-B, ΔMobar-AMobar-B, ΔMobar-A_Com. and ΔMobar-B_Com. strains. c Disease lesions formed on susceptible rice cultivar ‘CO39’ after independent spray inoculation with spore suspension (1 × 103 spores/mL containing 0.02% Tween20) obtained from wild-type, ΔMobar-B, ΔMobar-A_Com. and ΔMobar-B_Com. strains. d Penetration and colonization capabilities of the ΔMobar-A, ΔMobar-B, ΔMobar-AMobar-B and the wild-type strains cultured on rice bran medium for 10 days. Bar, 10 μm
