  • 1 June 2008
Recent advances, spurred by the availability of genomic resources for several plant species, include the characterization of cellulose synthase like (Csl) gene families that are unique to the grasses and the demonstration that members of one of those gene families, CslF, are responsible for making the mixed linkage glucans that areunique to the order Poales.

Genome sequencing and analysis of the model grass Brachypodium distachyon
The high-quality genome sequence will help Brachypodium reach its potential as an important model system for developing new energy and food crops and establishes a template for analysis of the large genomes of economically important pooid grasses such as wheat. Expand
Loss of a Callose Synthase Results in Salicylic Acid-Dependent Disease Resistance
It is found that powdery mildew resistant 4 (pmr4), a mutant lacking pathogen-induced callose, became resistant to pathogens, rather than more susceptible, due to mutation of a callose synthase, resulting in a loss of the induced callose response. Expand
Conserved requirement for a plant host cell protein in powdery mildew pathogenesis
A conserved requirement for MLO proteins in powdery mildew pathogenesis in the dicotyledonous plant species Arabidopsis thaliana is demonstrated, suggesting that within the Erysiphales (powdery mildews) the ability to cause disease has been a stable trait throughout phylogenesis. Expand
Resistance to Pseudomonas syringae conferred by an Arabidopsis thaliana coronatine-insensitive (coi1) mutation occurs through two distinct mechanisms.
These findings are consistent with the hypotheses that the P. syringae phytotoxin coronatine acts to promote virulence by inhibiting host defense responses and by promoting lesion formation. Expand
High-efficiency Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of Brachypodium distachyon inbred line Bd21-3
The identification of a transformable inbred diploid line, Bd21-3, and the development of a transformation method with transformation efficiencies as high as 41% of co-cultivated calluses producing transgenic plants are described. Expand
PMR6, a Pectate Lyase–Like Gene Required for Powdery Mildew Susceptibility in Arabidopsis Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at
PMR6 resistance represents a novel form of disease resistance based on the loss of a gene required during a compatible interaction rather than the activation of known host defense pathways. Expand
Development of SSR markers and analysis of diversity in Turkish populations of Brachypodium distachyon
The inbreeding nature and genotypic diversity observed at individual locations suggest a significant amount of long-distance seed dispersal in Brachypodium distachyon. Expand
Agrobacterium-mediated transformation and inbred line development in the model grass Brachypodium distachyon
The development of inbred lines from 27 accessions of Brachypodium are described and it is indicated that most of the lines contained an insertion at a single genetic locus. Expand

20 recessive Arabidopsis mutants that do not support normal growth of the powdery mildew pathogen, Erysiphe cichoracearum are identified, indicating a novel collection of mutants affecting genes required for a compatible interaction between a plant and a biotrophic pathogen. Expand
