Patterns of gene action in plant development revealed by enhancer trap and gene trap transposable elements.
TLDR
The development of an efficient insertional mutagenesis system in Arabidopsis that permits identification of genes by their patterns of expression during development and suggests that the identification and cloning ofArabidopsis genes expressed in any developmental process is feasible using this system. Expand
Isolation of the tomato Cf-9 gene for resistance to Cladosporium fulvum by transposon tagging.
TLDR
The predicted protein shows homology to the receptor domain of several receptor-like protein kinases in Arabidopsis, to antifungal polygalacturonase-inhibiting proteins in plants, and to other members of the leucine-rich repeat family of proteins. Expand
Analysis of 1.9 Mb of contiguous sequence from chromosome 4 of Arabidopsis thaliana
TLDR
Analysis of the sequence revealed an average gene density of one gene every 4.8 kilobases, and 54% of the predicted genes had significant similarity to known genes, and other interesting features were found, such as the sequence of a disease-resistance gene locus, the distribution of retroelements, and the frequent occurrence of clustered gene families. Expand
EDS1, an essential component of R gene-mediated disease resistance in Arabidopsis has homology to eukaryotic lipases.
TLDR
The results suggest that EDS1 functions upstream of salicylic acid-dependent PR1 mRNA accumulation and is not required for jasmonic acid-induced PDF1.2 mRNA expression. Expand
Resistance gene-dependent plant defense responses.
TLDR
The essential prerequisites for pathogen recognition and the induction of localized defense responses are examined, showing which responses are required to abolish or retard pathogen growth and how. Expand
Pronounced Intraspecific Haplotype Divergence at the RPP5 Complex Disease Resistance Locus of Arabidopsis
TLDR
It is proposed that the extremely high level of polymorphism at this complex resistance locus is maintained by frequency-dependent selection. Expand
Characterization of the tomato Cf-4 gene for resistance to Cladosporium fulvum identifies sequences that determine recognitional specificity in Cf-4 and Cf-9.
TLDR
The cloning and characterization of Cf-4, which also encodes a membrane-anchored extracellular glycoprotein, is described, providing further insight into the molecular basis of pathogen perception by plants and the organization of complex R gene loci. Expand
Calcium‐dependent protein kinases play an essential role in a plant defence response
TLDR
Investigation of the function of NtCDPK2 in plant defence was investigated by employing virus‐induced gene silencing (VIGS) in N.benthamiana, which showed a reduced and delayed hypersensitive response after race‐specific elicitation in a gene‐for‐gene interaction, and lacked an accompanying wilting phenotype. Expand
The Arabidopsis downy mildew resistance gene RPP5 shares similarity to the toll and interleukin-1 receptors with N and L6.
TLDR
The organization of repeated units within the leucine-rich repeats encoded by the wild-type R PP5 gene and an RPP5 mutant allele provides molecular evidence for the heightened capacity of this domain to evolve novel configurations and potentially new disease resistance specificities. Expand
Multiple Independent Defective Suppressor-mutator Transposon Insertions in Arabidopsis: A Tool for Functional Genomics
TLDR
A new system for insertional mutagenesis based on the maize Enhancer/Suppressor-mutator (En/Spm) element was introduced into Arabidopsis, allowing the recovery of new transpositions on a large scale and establishing a sequenced insertion-site database of 1200 sequences. Expand
