dc.description.abstract <p>Plants have evolved complex regulatory mechanisms to control the defense response against microbial attack. Both temporal and spatial gene expression are tightly regulated in response to pathogen ingress, modulating both positive and negative control of defense. BLUFENSIN1 (BLN1), a small peptide belonging to a novel family of proteins in barley (<em>Hordeum vulgare</em>), is highly induced by attack from the obligate biotrophic fungus <em>Blumeria graminis</em> f. sp. <em>hordei</em> (<em>Bgh</em>), casual agent of powdery mildew disease. Computational interrogation of the <em>Bln1</em> gene family determined that members reside solely in the BEP clade of the Poaceae family, specifically, barley, rice (<em>Oryza sativa</em>), and wheat (<em>Triticum aestivum</em>). Barley stripe mosaic virus-induced gene silencing of <em>Bln1</em> enhanced plant resistance in compatible interactions, regardless of the presence or absence of functional <em>Mla</em> coiled-coil, nucleotide-binding site, Leu-rich repeat alleles, indicating that BLN1 can function in an <em>R</em>-gene-independent manner. Likewise, transient overexpression of <em>Bln1</em> significantly increased accessibility toward virulent <em>Bgh</em>. Moreover, silencing in plants harboring the <em>Mlo</em> susceptibility factor decreased accessibility to <em>Bgh</em>, suggesting that BLN1 functions in parallel with or upstream of MLO to modulate penetration resistance. Collectively, these data suggest that the grass-specific <em>Bln1</em> negatively impacts basal defense against <em>Bgh</em>.</p>
