Biofilm formation, epiphytic fitness, and canker development in Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri.
The phytopathogenic bacterium Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri is responsible for the canker disease affecting citrus plants throughout the world. Here, we have evaluated the role of bacterialExpand

Induction of a defense response in strawberry mediated by an avirulent strain of Colletotrichum
In the strawberry crop area of Tucumán (north-west Argentina) the three species of Colletotrichum causing anthracnose disease (C. acutatum, C. fragariae and C. gloeosporioides) were detected. AmongExpand

Analysis of the molecular basis of Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. citri pathogenesis in Citrus limon
Xanthomonas axonopodis pathovar citri ( Xac ) causes bacterial citrus canker, a serious disease of most citrus species. Xanthomonas campestris pv. campestris ( Xcc ) is the causal agent of black rotExpand

Bacterial Cyclic β-(1,2)-Glucan Acts in Systemic Suppression of Plant Immune Responses[W]
Although cyclic glucans have been shown to be important for a number of symbiotic and pathogenic bacterium–plant interactions, their precise roles are unclear. Here, we examined the role of cyclicExpand

Genome-wide annotation of the soybean WRKY family and functional characterization of genes involved in response to Phakopsora pachyrhizi infection
BackgroundMany previous studies have shown that soybean WRKY transcription factors are involved in the plant response to biotic and abiotic stresses. Phakopsora pachyrhizi is the causal agent ofExpand
