WRKYs, a large family of transcription factors, are involved in plant response to biotic and abiotic stresses, but the role of them in tomato resistance to Oidium neolycopersici is still unclear. In this study, we evaluate the role of WRKYs in powdery mildew-resistant wild tomato (Solanum habrochaites) LA1777 defense against O. neolycopersici strain lz (On-lz) using a combination of omics, classical plant pathology- and cell biology-based approaches. A total of 27 WRKYs, belonging to group I, II, and III, were identified as differentially expressed genes in LA1777 against On-lz. It was found that expression of ShWRKY41 was increased after Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato (Pst) DC3000, On-lz and Botrytis cinerea B05 inoculation or ethylene precursor 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid (ACC) treatment. GUS staining of ShWRKY41 promoter indicated that the expression of ShWRKY41 could be induced by SA and ethylene. Furthermore, ShWRKY41 gene silencing reduced the resistance to On-lz infection by decreasing the generation of H2O2 and HR in LA1777 seedlings. Overall, our research suggests that ShWRKY41 plays a positive role in defense activation and host resistance to O. neolycopersici in wild tomato (S. habrochaites) LA1777.
