We have used an antisense expression technology in Arabidopsis based on the yeast GAL4/UAS transactivation system (Guyer et al., Genetics, 1998; 149:633-639) to reduce levels of protoporphyrinogen IX oxidase (PPO), the last common enzyme of the biosynthesis of the haem group and chlorophyll. Plants expressing the antisense PPO gene presented growth(More)
Fungicide action is generally assumed to be dependent on an antibiotic effect on a target pathogen, although a role for plant defense mechanisms as mediators of fungicide action has not been excluded. Here, we demonstrate that in Arabidopsis, the innate plant defense mechanism contributes to the effectiveness of fungicides. In NahG and nim1 (for(More)
Wheat cDNAs that encode proteins PR-1.1 and PR-1.2 were cloned. Deduced amino acid sequences were homologous to those of pathogen-induced, basic PR-1 proteins from plants. Although expression of PR1.1 and PR1.2 genes was induced upon infection with either compatible or incompatible isolates of the fungal pathogen Erysiphe graminis, these genes did not(More)
A large number of homogenous barley proteins has been screened for their ability to inhibit bacterial and fungal pathogens in vitro. Putative defense proteins thus selected have been further investigated to identify complementary and synergistic effects resulting from the combination in vitro of components from different protein families. Genes encoding(More)
