Loss of a Callose Synthase Results in Salicylic Acid-Dependent Disease Resistance
Plants attacked by pathogens rapidly deposit callose, a β-1,3-glucan, at wound sites. Traditionally, this deposition is thought to reinforce the cell wall and is regarded as a defense response.Expand

  • 1 June 2008
Grasses are amongst the most important crops worldwide, and the composition of their cell walls is critical for uses as food, feed, and energy crops. Grass cell walls differ dramatically from dicotExpand

Genome sequencing and analysis of the model grass Brachypodium distachyon
Three subfamilies of grasses, the Ehrhartoideae, Panicoideae and Pooideae, provide the bulk of human nutrition and are poised to become major sources of renewable energy. Here we describe the genomeExpand

Conserved requirement for a plant host cell protein in powdery mildew pathogenesis
In the fungal phylum Ascomycota, the ability to cause disease in plants and animals has been gained and lost repeatedly during phylogenesis. In monocotyledonous barley, loss-of-function mlo allelesExpand

PMR6, a Pectate Lyase–Like Gene Required for Powdery Mildew Susceptibility in Arabidopsis Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at
The plant genes required for the growth and reproduction of plant pathogens are largely unknown. In an effort to identify these genes, we isolated Arabidopsis mutants that do not support the normalExpand

Agrobacterium-mediated transformation and inbred line development in the model grass Brachypodium distachyon
Brachypodium distachyon (Brachypodium) has been proposed as a model temperate grass because its physical, genetic, and genome attributes (small stature, simple growth requirements, small genome size,Expand

Development of SSR markers and analysis of diversity in Turkish populations of Brachypodium distachyon
BackgroundBrachypodium distachyon (Brachypodium) is rapidly emerging as a powerful model system to facilitate research aimed at improving grass crops for grain, forage and energy production. ToExpand

Recessive and dominant mutations in the ethylene biosynthetic gene ACS5 of Arabidopsis confer cytokinin insensitivity and ethylene overproduction, respectively.
We identified a set of cytokinin-insensitive mutants by using a screen based on the ethylene-mediated triple response observed after treatment with low levels of cytokinins. One group of theseExpand

Mutations in PMR5 result in powdery mildew resistance and altered cell wall composition.
Powdery mildews and other obligate biotrophic pathogens are highly adapted to their hosts and often show limited host ranges. One facet of such host specialization is likely to be penetration of theExpand
