Fusarium basal rot (FBR) caused by Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. cepae (FOC) is a highly destructive soil borne disease incurring heavy damage in pre and post harvest onion and garlic crops worldwide. Only a few onion lines exhibit partial resistance against the pathogen and there is a need for identification of more effective resistance sources for use in(More)
Pathogenesis-related protein-5 (PR5) is encoded by a complex group of gene family that are involved in host defense against biotic and abiotic stresses as well as regulation of physiological processes in a wide range of plants and animals. In the present study, we isolated and characterized a PR5 gene, designated as AsPR5, induced in response to Fusarium(More)
Expressed Sequence Tags (ESTs) with comprehensive transcript information are valuable resources for development of molecular markers as they are derived from conserved genic regions. The present study highlights the mining of EST database to deduce the class I hyper variable SSRs in A. sativum. From 21694 garlic EST sequences, 642 non-redundant SSRs were(More)
Plant NBS-LRR R-genes recognizes several pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) and limit pathogen infection through a multifaceted defense response. CzR1, a coiled-coil-nucleotide-binding-site-leucine-rich repeat R-gene isolated from Curcuma zedoaria L exhibit constitutive resistance to different strains of P. aphanidermatum. Majority of the(More)
Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascades are highly conserved signaling modules that transduce the externally perceived signals and play crucial role in plant defense against pathogen attack. In the present study, a turmeric (Curcuma longa L.) complementary DNA (cDNA) encoding a MAPK gene responsive to Pythium aphanidermatum infection was isolated(More)
