Differential responses in host-nematode pathotype interactions occur in wheat lines carrying different cereal cyst nematode resistance (Cre) genes. Cre1, located on chromosome 2B, confers resistance to most European nematodes and the sole Australian pathotype, while Cre3, present on chromosome 2D, is highly resistant to the Australian pathotype and(More)
Rhizopines are nodule-specific compounds that confer an intraspecies competitive nodulation advantage to strains that can catabolize them. The rhizopine (3-O-methyl-scyllo-inosamine, 3-O-MSI) catabolic moc gene cluster mocCABRDE(F) in Rhizobium leguminosarum bv. viciae strain 1a is located on the Sym plasmid. MocCABR are homologous to the mocCABR gene(More)
In Sinorhizobium meliloti the mocCABR genes have previously been shown to be required for rhizopine (3-O-methyl-scyllo-inosamine, 3-O-MSI) catabolism. We show that the mocDE(F) gene cluster is also needed. MocDE(F), which is involved in the catabolism of 3-O-MSI to its demethylated form scyllo-inosamine (SI) has homology to components that would comprise a(More)
