Recent Genotypes of Phytophthora infestans in the Eastern United States Reveal Clonal Populations and Reappearance of Mefenoxam Sensitivity.
Isolates of Phytophthora infestans (n = 178) were collected in 2002 to 2009 from the eastern United States, Midwestern United States, and eastern Canada. Multilocus genotypes were defined usingExpand
Differential Neurosensory Responses of Adult Colorado Potato Beetle, Leptinotarsa decemlineata, to Glycoalkaloids
Neurons from chemosensory hairs on the galeae of adult Colorado potato beetle (CPB), Leptinotarsa decemlineata(Say), were investigated for responses to glycoalkaloids of the family Solanaceae. WhileExpand
Partial Preparative Purification of Leptine I from Foliage of the Wild Potato, Solanum Chacoense (BITT.)
ABSTRACT Leptine I, a glycoalkaloid only known to occur in the foliage of the wild potato species Solanum chacoense (Bitt.), is a potent feeding deterrent to the economically serious insect pest, theExpand
Constitutive Expression of a XEGIP in Potato Results in Phenotypic Changes Suggesting Endogenous Inhibition of Cell Wall Growth
One mechanism for plant defense is the production of proteinaceous inhibitors that block the function of pathogen-produced cell wall-modifying enzymes. The xyloglucanase-specific endoglucanaseExpand
First Report of Anthracnose Caused by Colletotrichum acutatum on Tamarillo in the United States.
An aggressive anthracnose disease was identified on greenhouse and home garden cultivated tamarillo (Solanum betaceum) in 2010 and 2011 in Prince George's and Montgomery counties of Maryland. AngularExpand
A Small Cellulose-Binding-Domain Protein (CBD1) in Phytophthora is Highly Variable in the Non-binding Amino Terminus
The small cellulose-binding-domain protein CBD1 is tightly bound to the cellulosic cell wall of the plant pathogenic stramenopile Phytophthora infestans. Transgene expression of the protein in potatoExpand
Eastern black nightshade (Solanum ptycanthum) interference in processing tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum).
In replacement experiments in the greenhouse, plant relative yield (PRY) of both eastern black night- shade and tomato increased as the proportion of nightshade plants increased in the pots,Expand
Over expression of the Q-type ZFP StZFP2 in potato increases resistance to potato late blight (Phytophthora infestans) infection
ABSTRACT Late blight in potato caused by Phytophthora infestans remains a major impediment to potato growers worldwide. Utilization of regulators that affect defence may augment control measures toExpand
A cellulose binding domain protein restores female fertility when expressed in transgenic Bintje potato
BackgroundExpression of a gene encoding the family 1 cellulose binding domain protein CBD1, identified in the cellulosic cell wall of the potato late blight pathogen Phytophthora infestans, wasExpand
