Interfamily Transfer of Tomato Ve1 Mediates Verticillium Resistance in Arabidopsis1[C][W][OA]
Vascular wilts caused by soil-borne fungal species of the Verticillium genus are devastating plant diseases. The most common species, Verticillium dahliae and Verticillium albo-atrum, have broad hostExpand

An NB-LRR protein required for HR signalling mediated by both extra- and intracellular resistance proteins.
Tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) Cf resistance genes confer hypersensitive response (HR)-associated resistance to strains of the pathogenic fungus Cladosporium fulvum that express the matchingExpand

NLR network mediates immunity to diverse plant pathogens
Significance Plant and animal nucleotide-binding domain and leucine-rich repeat-containing (NLR) proteins often function in pairs to mediate innate immunity to pathogens. However, the degree to whichExpand

Endoplasmic Reticulum-Quality Control Chaperones Facilitate the Biogenesis of Cf Receptor-Like Proteins Involved in Pathogen Resistance of Tomato1[C][W]
Cf proteins are receptor-like proteins (RLPs) that mediate resistance of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) to the foliar pathogen Cladosporium fulvum. These transmembrane immune receptors, which carryExpand

Identification of tomato phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase-C (PI-PLC) family members and the role of PLC4 and PLC6 in HR and disease resistance.
The perception of pathogen-derived elicitors by plants has been suggested to involve phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase-C (PI-PLC) signalling. Here we show that PLC isoforms are required forExpand

An unbiased method for the quantitation of disease phenotypes using a custom-built macro plugin for the program ImageJ.
Accurate evaluation of disease phenotypes is considered a key step to study plant-microbe interactions, as the rate of host colonization by the pathogenic microbe directly reflects whether theExpand

SnRK2 Protein Kinases and mRNA Decapping Machinery Control Root Development and Response to Salt1[OPEN]
Salinity stress shapes root development through control of mRNA stability and requires the partially redundant function of SnRK2 protein kinases to modulate transcript levels. SNF1-RELATED PROTEINExpand

Thrips advisor: exploiting thrips-induced defences to combat pests on crops.
Plants have developed diverse defence mechanisms to ward off herbivorous pests. However, agriculture still faces estimated crop yield losses ranging from 25% to 40% annually. These losses arise notExpand

Biochemical characterization of the tomato phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C (PI-PLC) family and its role in plant immunity.
Plants possess effective mechanisms to quickly respond to biotic and abiotic stresses. The rapid activation of phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C (PLC) enzymes occurs early after theExpand

The tomato phosphatidylinositol-phospholipase C2 (SlPLC2) is required for defense gene induction by the fungal elicitor xylanase.
The tomato [Solanum lycopersicum (Sl)] phosphatidylinositol-phospholipase C (PI-PLC) gene family is composed of six members, named SlPLC1 to SlPLC6, differentially regulated upon pathogen attack. WeExpand
