We describe the identification of a mutant in the Arabidopsis accession Columbia (Col-0) that exhibits enhanced downy mildew (edm1) susceptibility to several Peronospora parasitica isolates, including the RPP7-diagnostic isolate Hiks1. The mutation was mapped to chromosome IV and characterized physically as a 35-kb deletion spanning seven genes. One of these genes complemented the mutant to full wild-type resistance against all of the Peronospora isolates tested. This gene (AtSGT1b) encodes a predicted protein of 39.8 kD and is an Arabidopsis ortholog of yeast SGT1, which was described originally as a key regulatory protein in centromere function and ubiquitin-mediated proteolysis. AtSGT1b contains three tetratricopeptide repeats at the N terminus followed by a bipartite chord-containing SGT domain and an SGT-specific domain at the C terminus. We discuss the role of AtSGT1b in disease resistance and its possible involvement in ubiquitin-mediated proteolysis in plants.
