ATP-binding cassette proteins have been recognized as playing a crucial role in the regulation of growth and resistance processes in all kingdoms of life. They have been deeply studied in vertebrates because of their role in drug resistance, but much less is known about ABC superfamily functions in plants. Recently released plant genome sequences allowed us(More)
The antimicrobial activity of garlic (Allium sativum L.) has been known since ancient times. The first citation dates back to the Egyptian period of fifteenth century BC when garlic was reported to be used in folk medicine as a remedy for microbial infections. Scientific investigations on garlic started in 1858 with the work of Pasteur who first noted(More)

Fusarium head blight (FHB) is a multifaceted disease caused by some species of Fusarium spp. A huge production of mycotoxins, mostly trichothecenes, often accompanied this disease. Amongst these toxic compounds, deoxynivalenol (DON) and its derivatives represent a major issue for human as well as for animal health and farming. Common and durum wheat are(More)
Diaporthe helianthi is a fungus pathogenic to sunflower. Virulent strains of this fungus cause stem canker with important yield losses and reduction of oil content. Here we present the first draft whole-genome sequence of the highly virulent isolate D. helianthi strain 7/96, thus providing a useful platform for future research on stem canker of sunflower(More)
