Resistance to Ralstonia solanacearum in Arabidopsis thaliana is conferred by the recessive RRS1-R gene, a member of a novel family of resistance genes
The identification of two Arabidopsis thaliana genes involved in determining recessive resistance to several strains of the causal agent of bacterial wilt, Ralstonia solanacearum, is reported.Expand

Transcriptional Responses of Arabidopsis thaliana during Wilt Disease Caused by the Soil-Borne Phytopathogenic Bacterium, Ralstonia solanacearum
Bacterial wilt is a common disease that causes severe yield and quality losses in many plants. In the present study, we used the model Ralstonia solanacearum-Arabidopsis thaliana pathosystem to studyExpand

Susceptibility of rice to the blast fungus, Magnaporthe grisea.
The interaction between rice and the blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea is the focus of extensive studies on rice disease resistance and fungal infection mechanisms. Here, we review the characteristicsExpand

Delayed Symptom Development in ein2-1, an Arabidopsis Ethylene-Insensitive Mutant, in Response to Bacterial Wilt Caused by Ralstonia solanacearum.
ABSTRACT Wilt disease caused by the phytopathogenic bacterium Ralstonia solanacearum is poorly understood at the molecular level. The possible roles of salicylic acid, jasmonic acid, and ethylene,Expand

Identification of precursor transcripts for 6 novel miRNAs expands the diversity on the genomic organisation and expression of miRNA genes in rice
BackgroundThe plant miRNAs represent an important class of endogenous small RNAs that guide cleavage of an mRNA target or repress its translation to control development and adaptation to stresses.Expand

A Novel fry1 Allele Reveals the Existence of a Mutant Phenotype Unrelated to 5′->3′ Exoribonuclease (XRN) Activities in Arabidopsis thaliana Roots
Background Mutations in the FRY1/SAL1 Arabidopsis locus are highly pleiotropic, affecting drought tolerance, leaf shape and root growth. FRY1 encodes a nucleotide phosphatase that in vitro hasExpand

Building a mutant resource for the study of disease resistance in rice reveals the pivotal role of several genes involved in defence.
In Arabidopsis, gene expression studies and analysis of knock-out (KO) mutants have been instrumental in building an integrated view of disease resistance pathways. Such an integrated view is missingExpand

Long Term Remission in Follicular Lymphoma (FL) and Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL) with Rituximab Consolidation after High-Dose Chemotherapy and Autologous Stem Cell Transplantation: Extended Follow-Up
We investigated the efficacy of rituximab given after high-dose therapy (HDT) and autologous peripheral blood stem cell transplantation (ASCT) in order to prevent relapse by clearance of minimalExpand

Isolation and Characterization of a Novel Arabidopsis thaliana Mutant Unable to Develop Wilt Symptoms After Inoculation with a Virulent Strain of Ralstonia solanacearum.
ABSTRACT To characterize host genes required for a compatible interaction, we identified a novel recessive Arabidopsis thaliana mutant, nws1 (no wilt symptoms), that failed to develop wilt symptomsExpand

A control-to-target architecture for process control
In this paper, we present an architecture for a run-to-run supervisory process control system that allows the engineer to tailor the form of control for specific processes. The architecture supportsExpand
