Dynamic reorganization of microfilaments and microtubules is necessary for the expression of non‐host resistance in barley coleoptile cells
The results strongly suggest that microfilaments and microtubules might play important roles in the expression of non-host resistance of barley.
Actin Microfilaments are Required for the Expression of Nonhost Resistance in Higher Plants
It is shown that the polymerized, filamentous state of actin is necessary for plants to block fungal penetration, which strongly suggest that actin microfilaments may play important roles in the expression of nonhost resistance of higher plants.

The ultrastructure of Gallionella cells and stalks is described and the visualized structural and spatial localization of constitutive elements within the stalks are visualized, providing deeper insights into the unique inorganic/organic hybrid structure of the stalk.
Endophytic Actinomycetes and Their Interactions with Host Plants
REN1 Is Required for Development of Microconidia and Macroconidia, but Not of Chlamydospores, in the Plant Pathogenic Fungus Fusarium oxysporum
The filamentous fungus Fusarium oxysporum is a soil-borne facultative parasite that causes economically important losses in a wide variety of crops. F. oxysporum exhibits filamentous growth on agar…
Recognition of a pathogen and a nonpathogen by barley coleoptile cells. III. Responses of microtubules and actin filaments in barley coleoptile cells to penetration attempts
New arrangements of microtubules and actin filaments in coleoptile cells of barley that had been inoculated with either a nonpathogen, Erysiphe pisi, or a pathogen, E. graminis, were observed by…
Visualization of Infection of an Endophytic Actinomycete Streptomyces galbus in Leaves of Tissue-cultured Rhododendron
Infection of a Streptomyces galbus strain R-5 in leaves of tissue-cultured seedlings of rhododendron was examined using transmission electron microscopy and a histochemical method, and wall appositions formed within the epidermal and mesophyll cells, suggesting that those cells had recognized the presence of mycelia and responded to it.

Results suggest that monoterpene volatiles are likely to play roles in the defense of rough lemon against microbe and insect pathogens.
Isolation of a Leptothrix Strain, OUMS1, from Ocherous Deposits in Groundwater
The successful isolation of OUMS1 led to establish a basic system to accumulate biological knowledge of Leptothrix and to promote the understanding of the mechanism of microtubule formation, as well as provide an attractive approach to study the broad industrial application of bacteria-derived iron oxides.
