H1-responses to Asp f3 (a putative peroxismal membrane protein), Asp f9/16 (cell wall glucanase), Asp f11 (cyclophilin type peptidyl-prolyl isomerase) and Asp f22 (enolase).
Whether the pathogen itself triggers the chitinase and glucanase activities or the PAMPs switch on the host defense is still debatable.
Conversely, in the case of compatible reactions between susceptible hosts and pathogens, β, 1-3 glucanase-induced callose degradation facilitates the absorption of nutrients by haustoria and promotes growth and sporulation
