Our work aimed at a global investigation of the lipid metabolism during the induction of resistance in wheat (Triticum aestivum) against powdery mildew (Blumeria graminis f.sp. tritici). More specifically, the effect of salicylic acid, known as playing a key role in the activation of defence reactions against pathogens in plants, has been investigated.(More)
Three families of lipopeptides (LPs), surfactin, iturin (including mycosutilin) and fengycin, produced by the rhizabacterium Bacillus subtilis have received considerable attention for their antimicrobial, cytotoxic, antitumor, immunosuppressant and surfactant properties. Among them, iturins and fengycins generally display a strong in vitro antifungal(More)
In conventional agricultural practices, fungicides are extensively used to control the development of many fungal plant pathogens. However, the reduction of pesticide applications in the field, which is recommended by authorities and approved by public opinion, may lead to a re-emergence of diseases. Alternative strategies have therefore to be developed in(More)
Powdery mildew caused by Blumeria graminis f.sp. tritici, an obligate aerial biotrophic fungus, would be one of the most damaging wheat (Triticum aestivum) diseases without the extensive use of conventional fungicides. In our study, the expression levels of some basal defence-related genes were investigated during a compatible interaction in order to(More)
