Trichoderma–plant–pathogen interactions
Abstract Biological control involves the use of beneficial organisms, their genes, and/or products, such as metabolites, that reduce the negative effects of plant pathogens and promote positiveExpand

A Compound from Smoke That Promotes Seed Germination
Exposure of seeds to aerosol smoke or crude smoke extracts stimulates the germination of a number of fire-dependent and fire-independent plant species. We now report the identity of aExpand

F-box protein MAX2 has dual roles in karrikin and strigolactone signaling in Arabidopsis thaliana
Smoke is an important abiotic cue for plant regeneration in postfire landscapes. Karrikins are a class of compounds discovered in smoke that promote seed germination and influence early developmentExpand

Strigolactone Hormones and Their Stereoisomers Signal through Two Related Receptor Proteins to Induce Different Physiological Responses in Arabidopsis1[W]
Strigolactone hormones signal through a specific receptor to induce particular responses in Arabidopsis, whereas their stereoisomers induce different responses by signaling through a closely relatedExpand

A novel role for Trichoderma secondary metabolites in the interactions with plants
Abstract Secondary metabolites play a pivotal role in the antagonistic activities of some biocontrol species of Trichoderma resulting in the suppression of plant pathogens, but their involvement inExpand

Seed germination of agricultural weeds is promoted by the butenolide 3-methyl-2H-furo[2,3-c]pyran-2-one under laboratory and field conditions
Here we report that a synthesised form of a naturally occurring chemical (a butenolide, 3-methyl-2H-furo[2,3-c]pyran-2-one) found in smoke can stimulate seedling emergence of the economicallyExpand

Regulation of seed germination and seedling growth by chemical signals from burning vegetation.
It is well known that burning of vegetation stimulates new plant growth and landscape regeneration. The discovery that char and smoke from such fires promote seed germination in many speciesExpand

Karrikins Discovered in Smoke Trigger Arabidopsis Seed Germination by a Mechanism Requiring Gibberellic Acid Synthesis and Light1[W][OA]
Discovery of the primary seed germination stimulant in smoke, 3-methyl-2H-furo[2,3-c]pyran-2-one (KAR1), has resulted in identification of a family of structurally related plant growth regulators,Expand
