The Mediator Complex Subunit PFT1 Is a Key Regulator of Jasmonate-Dependent Defense in Arabidopsis[C][W]
A wheat homolog of PFT1 complemented the defense and the developmental phenotypes of the pft1 mutant, suggesting that the jasmonate signaling functions of P FT1 may be conserved in higher plants.
Application of inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers to plant genetics
The data indicate that this is not a result of greater polymorphism genetically, but rather technical reasons related to the detection methodology used for ISSR analysis, which usually detects a higher level of polymorphism than that detected with restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) or random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analyses.
Stem cankers on sunflower (Helianthus annuus) in Australia reveal a complex of pathogenic Diaporthe (Phomopsis) species
It is shown that there has been broad misapplication of the name D. helianthi to many isolates of Diaporthe (Phomopsis) found causing, or associated with, stem cankers on sunflower.
Susceptibility of provenances of spotted gums to Ramularia shoot blight
A difference in disease susceptibility was demonstrated between provenances of spotted gums inoculated with Ramularia spores under field conditions, and a number of other Eucalyptus species inoculations showed no susceptibility.
Green and brown bridges between weeds and crops reveal novel Diaporthe species in Australia
Eight novel Diaporthe species isolated from live and/or dead tissue from the broad acre crops lupin, maize, mungbean, soybean and sunflower, and associated weed species in Queensland and New South Wales, as well as the environmental weed bitou bush in eastern Australia are described.
Auxin signaling and transport promote susceptibility to the root-infecting fungal pathogen Fusarium oxysporum in Arabidopsis.

The results suggest that, similarly to many other pathogenic and nonpathogenic or beneficial soil organisms, F. oxysporum requires components of auxin signaling and transport to colonize the plant more effectively.
Development of a mungbean (Vigna radiata) RFLP linkage map and its comparison with lablab (Lablab purpureus) reveals a high level of colinearity between the two genomes
In contrast to some other comparative mapping studies among members of the Fabaceae, where a high level of chromosomal rearrangement has been observed, marker order between mungbean and lablab was found to be highly conserved, however, the two genomes have apparently accumulated a large number of duplications/deletions after they diverged.
Relationships between hard-seededness and seed weight in mungbean (Vigna radiata) assessed by QTL analysis
Breeding large and persistently hard-seeded varieties of mungbean may be possible using a quantitative trail loci (QTL) mapping approach with a recombinant inbred population derived from a cross between a completely soft-seeding variety and a completely hard-Seeded genotype.

Two species of Ganoderma belonging to different subgenera which cause disease on oil palms in PNG are identified by basidiome morphology and the morphology of their basidiospores. The names G.…

LBD20 is a F. oxysporum susceptibility gene that appears to regulate components of JA signaling downstream of COI1 and MYC2 that are required for full elicitation of F. oxide- and JA-dependent responses.
