Fungal plant pathogens that attempt to penetrate and feed on living cells frequently trigger a localized plant defence response that results in fungal penetration failure. In the current study we demonstrate that breakdown products of the cell wall released by the localized application of hemicellulase elicit localized responses including, sequentially,(More)
AIMS 5'-Nuclease (real-time, quantitative) PCR methodologies were developed and applied as diagnostic tools for the detection of microcystin-producing cyanobacteria and Escherichia coli in water. METHODS AND RESULTS PCR was used to detect regions of the lacZ gene in E. coli, and the microcystin synthetase gene in microcystin-producing cyanobacteria. In(More)
Issues of water quality are a global problem with potentially devastating results in communities if microbial levels are not monitored and controlled effectively.This is especially true with the potential threat of bioterrorist contamination of water supplies.This study presents a method for quantifying microbial water pathogens by 5' nuclease real-time(More)
