Castanea crenata, the Japanese chestnut,[2][3] also known as the Korean chestnut[4] is a species of chestnut native to Japan and Korea.[1] Castanea crenata exhibits resistance to Phytophthora cinnamomi, the fungal pathogen that causes ink disease in several Castanea species. The mechanism of resistance of Castanea crenata to Phytophthora cinnamomi may derive from its expression of the Cast_Gnk2-like gene. [5]
