Finished Genome of the Fungal Wheat Pathogen Mycosphaerella graminicola Reveals Dispensome Structure, Chromosome Plasticity, and Stealth Pathogenesis
TLDR
The genome of M. graminicola was sequenced completely and found that it contained very few genes for enzymes that break down plant cell walls, which was more similar to endophytes than to pathogens, which may have evolved from endophytic ancestors. Expand
Multiple Repeats of a Promoter Segment Causes Transcription Factor Autoregulation in Red Apples[W]
TLDR
Results indicate that an allelic rearrangement in the promoter of MYB10 has generated an autoregulation locus, and this autoreGulation is sufficient to account for the increase in MyB10 transcript levels and subsequent ectopic accumulation of anthocyanins throughout the plant. Expand
Cisgenic plants are similar to traditionally bred plants
TLDR
The European legal framework defines GMOs and specifies various breeding techniques that are excluded from the GMO regulations as a starting point, particularly the European Directive 2001/18/EC on the deliberate release of GMOs into the environment. Expand
Characterization of the MLO gene family in Rosaceae and gene expression analysis in Malus domestica
TLDR
A genome-wide characterization of the MLO gene family in apple, peach and strawberry was carried out, and candidate MLO susceptibility genes were identified and it can be investigated whether silencing or a loss-of-function mutations in one or more of these candidate genes leads to PM resistance. Expand
Meiosis Drives Extraordinary Genome Plasticity in the Haploid Fungal Plant Pathogen Mycosphaerella graminicola
TLDR
High genome plasticity could be among the strategies enabling this versatile pathogen to quickly overcome adverse biotic and abiotic conditions in wheat fields. Expand
Resistance gene analogues identified through the NBS-profiling method map close to major genes and QTL for disease resistance in apple
TLDR
This study demonstrates the efficiency of the NBS-profiling method for generating RGA markers for resistance loci in apple and several markers could become efficient tools for marker-assisted selection once converted into breeder-friendly markers. Expand
Cisgenesis strongly improves introgression breeding and induced translocation breeding of plants.
TLDR
Cisgenesis is an improvement for gene transfer from crossable plants: it is a one-step gene transfer without linkage drag of other genes, whereas induced translocation and introgression breeding are multiple step gene transfer methods with linkage drag. Expand
Genomic cloning and linkage mapping of the Mal d 1 (PR-10) gene family in apple (Malus domestica)
TLDR
A better understanding of the genetics of Mal d 1 is provided and the basis for further research on the occurrence of allelic diversity among cultivars in relation to allergenicity and their biological functions is provided. Expand
Validation of the high-throughput marker technology DArT using the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
The potential of DArT for genetic mapping is demonstrated by validating the quality and molecular basis of the markers, using the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, by demonstrating the scoring of markers with specialized software was highly reproducible and 107 markers could unambiguously be ordered on a genetic linkage map. Expand
The development of a cisgenic apple plant.
TLDR
The generation of a cisgenic apple plant is reported by inserting the endogenous apple scab resistance gene HcrVf2 under the control of its own regulatory sequences into the scab susceptible apple cultivar Gala. Expand
