Phytophthora cinnamomi is a destructive and widespread soil-borne oomycete that infects woody plant hosts . On the Nordeste Transmontano region (northeast Portugal), this pathogen is the responsible by the ink disease affecting Castanea sativa chestnut. The most common symptoms are root necrosis and reduction in root growth, which invariably lead to tree death. Due to their particular physiological characteristics, no efficient treatments against diseases caused by these microorganisms are presently available. In order to develop such treatments appeared essential to dissect the molecular mechanisms of the interaction between Phytophthora species and host plants.
