Novel Disease Resistance Specificities Result from Sequence Exchange between Tandemly Repeated Genes at the Cf-4/9Locus of Tomato
Tomato Cf genes confer resistance to C. fulvum, reside in complex loci carrying multiple genes, and encode predicted membrane-bound proteins with extracytoplasmic leucine-rich repeats. At least twoExpand

Characterization of the tomato Cf-4 gene for resistance to Cladosporium fulvum identifies sequences that determine recognitional specificity in Cf-4 and Cf-9.
In many interactions between plants and their pathogens, resistance to infection is specified by plant resistance (R) genes and corresponding pathogen avirulence (Avr) genes. In tomato, the Cf-4 andExpand

The Tomato Cf-2 Disease Resistance Locus Comprises Two Functional Genes Encoding Leucine-Rich Repeat Proteins
In plants, resistance to pathogens is frequently determined by dominant resistance genes, whose products are proposed to recognize pathogen-encoded avirulence gene (Avr) products. The tomatoExpand

Analysis of a genomic DNA region from the cyanobacterium Synechococcus sp. strain PCC7942 involved in carboxysome assembly and function.
We report on the sequencing and analysis of a 3,557-bp genomic DNA clone that is located between 4.8 and 1.2 kilobase pairs (kb) upstream of the rbcL gene and is capable of complementing a class ofExpand

The Tomato Cf-5 Disease Resistance Gene and Six Homologs Show Pronounced Allelic Variation in Leucine-Rich Repeat Copy Number
The tomato Cf-2 and Cf-5 genes confer resistance to Cladosporium fulvum and map to a complex locus on chromosome 6. The Cf-5 gene has been isolated and is predicted to encode a largelyExpand

The tomato Dwarf gene isolated by heterologous transposon tagging encodes the first member of a new cytochrome P450 family.
To transposon tag the tomato Dwarf (D) gene, a tomato line that carries a T-DNA containing a maize Activator (Ac) transposable element closely linked to D was pollinated with a stock homozygous forExpand

Effective vectors for transformation, expression of heterologous genes, and assaying transposon excision in transgenic plants
Progress in plant molecular biology has depended heavily on the availability of effective vectors for plant cell transformation and heterologous expression. In this paper we describe the structuresExpand

The tomato DWARF enzyme catalyses C-6 oxidation in brassinosteroid biosynthesis.
Brassinosteroids (BRs) are steroidal plant hormones essential for normal plant growth and development. Mutants in the biosynthesis or perception of BRs are usually dwarf. The tomato Dwarf gene (D),Expand

The Tomato Cf-9 Disease Resistance Gene Functions in Tobacco and Potato to Confer Responsiveness to the Fungal Avirulence Gene Product Avr9
The Cf-9 gene encodes an extracytoplasmic leucine-rich repeat protein that confers resistance in tomato to races of the fungus Cladosporium fulvum that express the corresponding avirulence gene Avr9.Expand

Developmental control of promoter activity is not responsible for mature onset of Cf-9B-mediated resistance to leaf mold in tomato.
Cf-9 confers resistance to tomato seedlings and mature plants against Cladosporium fulvum races expressing the Avr9 elicitor. It is the central member of a cluster of five paralogous genes in anExpand
