Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
Name of the protein expressed by the coding sequence
Resistance gene 2
Biological function
The Resistance gene is a member of the NBS-LRR (Nucleotide Binding Site - Leucine Rich Repeat) class and codes for a protein that recognise specific proteins - termed elicitor proteins - of Phytophthora infestans the causing agent of late-blight disease.

Recognition of the elicitor proteins will lead to local plant cell death and will thus prevent further development of the pathogen Phytophthora infestans.

The precise molecular basis of R gene/single-gene and quantitative resistance to late blight is unknown.
