ABSTRACT Twenty-six isolates of a Phytophthora population from two wild solanaceous species, Solanum tetrapetalum (n 11) and S. brevifolium (n = 15), were characterized morphologically, with genetic and phenotypic markers, and for pathogenicity on potato and tomato. Based on morphology, ribosomal internal transcribed spacer region 2 (ITS2) sequence, and(More)
Spores of Dictyostelium discoideum undergo significant changes in fine structure during germination. The mitochondria progressively become less dense and lose their peripherally attached ribosomes, and the tubuli become more pronounced as germination proceeds. During this period, the three-layered spore wall breaks down in two stages: first, the outer and(More)
Actin and tubulins of Phytophthora infestans germlings were detected with monoclonal antibodies on Western blots of crude extracts separated by one-dimensional sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). The Mr of actin was approximately 43,000, whereas alpha- and beta-tubulin, which migrated as a single band, had an Mr of 53,000.(More)
Encystation in Phytophthora parasitica can be divided into 3 stages. In the first, the zoospores line their peripheries with flattened vesicles and nbrillar vacuoles in preparation for encystation. In the second stage, as the zoospores round up and shed their flagella, an initial wall is produced which takes the form of the mature cyst wall in thickness,(More)
Germinating cysts and isolated walls from germinating cysts incorporated 14C-UDPG into wall material of which 22.5 and 15% respectively were insoluble in boiling 1 N HCl, indicating that part of the synthetase activity is located in the wall itself. A combination of Urografin and Ficoll density gradients was used to separate various intracellular fractions.(More)
