RIN13 Is a Positive Regulator of the Plant Disease Resistance Protein RPM1w⃞
TLDR
The isolation and functional characterization of RPM1 Interacting Protein 13 (RIN13), a resistance protein interactor shown to positively enhance resistance function, are described and it is suggested that cell death is not necessary to confer resistance, and engineering enhanced resistance without activation of programmed cellDeath is a real possibility.
Studying Erwinia amylovora isolates from Syria for copper resistance and streptomycin sensitivity.
TLDR
A total of 75 Erwinia amylovora isolates, collected primarily from fire blighted quince and pear shoots, were tested for copper resistance and streptomycin sensitivity, indicating that most of the Syrian E. amylvora isolate are copper tolerant and could cause severe problems even in copper heavily sprayed orchards.
Evaluation of potato tuber moth mortality following postharvest cold storage of potatoes
TLDR
The low temperatures applied during postharvest storage of potatoes could be efficiently used as a protective disinfestation technique against the potato tuber moth.
Changes in transcript and protein expression levels in the barley — Cochliobolus sativus interaction
TLDR
It is suggested that a joint analysis of the transcriptomic and proteomic of barley data can provide useful insights that may not be deciphered from individual analysis of mRNA or protein expressions.
Chaperonin GroEL a Brucella immunodominant antigen identified using Nanobody and MALDI-TOF-MS technologies.
TLDR
The main characteristics of this Nb that can efficiently distinguish under well-defined conditions the Brucella from other bacteria including Yersinia are investigated and Interestingly, the antigen recognition by NbBruc02 was found to be affected by the state of GroEL folding.
Incidence of the potato late blight pathogen, Phytophthora infestans, in Syria and its mating type
TLDR
During 2011, 2013 and 2014 cropping seasons, prevalence of potato late blight in all survived areas throughout the interior of Syria was examined and the disease incidence varied and ranged from 0 to 85.71%.
Differential gene behavior in barley plants challenged with biotrophic and necrotrophic pathogens
TLDR
Data showed that barley plants triggered different defense mechanisms to strengthen their B. graminis and C. sativus resistance, and the expression patterns of the same defense-associated genes were altered in adaptation to each pathogen.
Phytoremediation of Trichloroethylene And Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane—Polluted Water Using Transgenic Sesbania Grandiflora and Arabidopsis Thaliana Plants Harboring Rabbit Cytochrome P450 2E1
TLDR
Both transgenic plants were more effective in breaking down TCE and DDT with a 2-fold increase in TCE metabolism and stability of rabbit cytochrome p450 2E1 was confirmed using third generation Arabidopsis plants that displayed higher potential for the removal of two important pollutants.
Accumulation of Transcripts Abundance after Barley Inoculation with Cochliobolus sativus
TLDR
To characterize the defense responses initiated by barley resistant and susceptible cultivars, a survey of transcript abundance at early time points of C. sativus inoculation found a notable number of transcripts exhibiting significant differential accumulations in the resistant and susceptibility cultivars were detected compared to the non-inoculated controls.
CHANGES IN SALICYLIC ACID AND GENE EXPRESSION LEVELS DURING BARLEY-BLUMERIA GRAMINIS INTERACTION
TLDR
An insight is provided into the signaling pathway that accounts for classical gene expression changes elicited during barley-Bgh interactions, which might be evidence that SA plays a positive role in signaling events during fungal infection by Bgh.
