Variant forms of the binary toxin CDT locus and tcdC gene in Clostridium difficile strains.
Variability in the genes for toxin A, toxin B and other pathogenicity locus regions is well known and is the basis for the distribution of Clostridium difficile strains into variant toxinotypes.Expand
Analysis of Putative Apoplastic Effectors from the Nematode, Globodera rostochiensis, and Identification of an Expansin-Like Protein That Can Induce and Suppress Host Defenses
TLDR
A novel role for an apoplastic expansin-like protein in suppressing intra-cellular defense responses is shown, consistent with the scenario whereby potato cyst nematodes secrete effectors that modulate host cell fate and metabolism as well as modifying host cell walls. Expand
Isolation of non-pathogenic Agrobacterium spp. biovar 1 from agricultural soils in Slovenia
The disease crown gall, which causes damage on perennial agricultural crops, is economically important in many countries. We therefore explored the presence of Agrobacterium spp. in a variety ofExpand
The Incidence of Root-Knot Nematodes Meloidogyne arenaria, M. incognita, and M. javanica on Vegetables and Weeds in Montenegro.
Root-knot nematodes (Meloidogyne spp.) are common pathogens that parasitize vegetables and other crops and cause significant yield reductions worldwide. In the early spring of 2006, severe plantExpand
PCR-RFLP diagnostic method for identifying Globodera species in Slovenia
TLDR
Sequences of the internal transcribed spacer regions ITS1 and ITS2 of the rDNA gene cluster proved to be useful for identifying nematode species identification and a PCR-RFLP molecular method was used to identify Globodera rostochiensis, G. pallida,G. Expand
Xiphinema rivesi from Slovania Transmit Tobacco ringspot virus and Tomato ringspot virus to Cucumber Bait Plants.
TLDR
Transmission of TRSV and ToRSV was confirmed by testing leaf and root sap of bait plants in a double antibody sandwich (DAS)-ELISA and high virus concentrations were detected in the roots and leaves of T RSV andToRSV symptomatic plants. Expand
VARIABILITY OF POTATO SPINDLE TUBER VIROID ISOLATES FROM ORNAMENTAL HOSTS IN SLOVENIA
TLDR
Analysis of 96 complete master sequences of Slovene positive samples revealed new variants, although the majority of master sequences were identical to the sequence variant of PSTVd found in S. rantonnetii in Italy (EF459700). Expand
Discrimination between abiotic and biotic drought stress in tomatoes using hyperspectral imaging
Abstract Crop plants are subjected to various biotic and abiotic stresses. Both root-knot nematodes (biotic stress) and water deficiency (abiotic stress) lead to similar drought symptoms in the plantExpand
