Pan proteomei This proteome is part of the Cochliobolus heterostrophus (strain C5 / ATCC 48332 / race O) (Southern corn leaf blight fungus) (Bipolaris maydis) pan proteome (fasta)

Cochliobolus heterostrophus is a necrotrophic fungal plant pathogen which is highly specific for maize. It is found globally in many subtropical and tropical regions. In the USA, it causes the crop disease southern corn leaf blight. Species of the genus Cochliobolus (and some closely related taxa) are known for their unusual ability to produce host-specific toxins (HSTs), effectors which induce disease only in host species expressing certain disease-susceptibility genes. Race O is an inbred laboratory strain which is only weakly pathogenic, and lacks the genes required for synthesis of the HST T-toxin associated with the high virulence of Race T.

The C. heterostrophus genome was sequenced in 2013 by the Joint Genome Institute. It is 36 Mb in size with an estimated 13,336 protein-coding genes.
