Evidence for the involvement of an oxidative stress in the initiation of infection of pear by Erwinia amylovora.
Involvement of an oxidative burst, usually related to incompatible plant/pathogen interactions leading to hypersensitive reactions, was investigated with Erwinia amylovora, the causal agent of fireExpand

Insights into Populus XIP aquaporins: evolutionary expansion, protein functionality, and environmental regulation.
A novel category of major intrinsic proteins which share weak similarities with previously identified aquaporin subfamilies was recently identified in land plants, and named X (for unrecognized)Expand

Resistance of sunflower to the biotrophic oomycete Plasmopara halstedii is associated with a delayed hypersensitive response within the hypocotyls.
The biotrophic oomycete Plasmopara halstedii is the causal agent of downy mildew in sunflower. It penetrates the roots of both susceptible and resistant sunflower lines and grows through theExpand

Expression of a bacterial effector, harpin N, causes increased resistance to fire blight in Pyrus communis
The rapid and effective activation of disease resistance responses is essential for plant defense against pathogen attack. These responses are initiated when pathogen-derived molecules (elicitors)Expand
