(1999); received May 5/May 19, 1999 Magnaporthe grisea, Pyricularia oryzae, Appressorium Formation, Antifungal Compounds, Alternative Oxidase, Respiratory Inhibitors Appressorium formation in germinating conidia of Magnaporthe grisea was induced on a hydrophilic (noninductive) surface by antifungal compounds. Respiratory inhibitors or un­ coupling agents such as strobilurins, antimycin A, myxothiazol, rotenone, pterulone A, and oligomycin A were particularly effective whereas sodium cyanide had no effect. Cyclosporin A was effective only at high concentrations

Introduction Rice blast disease, caused by infection of rice blast fungus, Magnaporthe grisea (Hebert) Barr, is one of the most harmful diseases for rice [1]. Several salicylaldehyde derivatives, such as pyriculol ( 2 ) [2], pyriculariol ( 3 ) [3], pyriculone ( 4 ) [4], and pyricuol ( 5 ) [5], have been isolated from the fungus as suspicious compounds responsible for the disease; they induce dark necrotic spot, when being applied to wounded rice leaves. In addition, o -formyl- m -hydroxycinnamic acid ( 6 ), probably further oxidized compound derived from 4

While isolating the active metabolites two new caloporosides, caloporoside G and calopo- roside H, in addition to the known


Aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) superfamily is a group of enzymes metabolizing endogenous and exogenous aldehydes. Using differential display RT-PCR and cDNA library screening, a full-length aldehyde dehydrogenase cDNA (ALDH7B7) was isolated from rice leaves infected by incompatible race of blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea. The deduced amino acid sequence consists of 509 amino acid residues and shares 74∼81% identity with those of ALDH7Bs from other plants. ALDH7B7 expression was induced by blast fungus infection, ultraviolet, mechanical wound in rice leaves and was not detected in untreated rice organs. This gene has also been found to be inducible after exogenous phytohormones application, such as salicylic acid, methyl ester of jasmonic acid and abscisic acid. The function of ALDH7B7 in the interaction process between blast fungus and rice is discussed.

against sudden changes in osmotic pressure. Introduction Melanines are a group of polymeric pigments pro- duced by many animals, plants and microorganisms (Thathachari and Blois 1969). Many terrestrial fungi are known to produce melanin. For example, the hy- phae of some soil fungi (Ellis and Griffiths 1974), sclerotia of Sclerotium rolfsii Sacc. (Chet et al 1967), chlamydospores of Tliielaviopsis basicola (Berk et Br.) Ferraris (Wheeler and Stipanovic 1979) and appres- soria of Magnaporthe grisea (Hebert) Barr (Chumley and Valent 1990) contain melanin pigments. However
