Inoculation of Transgenic Resistant Potato by Phytophthora infestans Affects Host Plant Choice of a Generalist Moth
TLDR
The results indicate that the Rpi-blb1 based resistance in itself does not influence insect behavior, but that herbivore oviposition preference is affected by a change in the plant-microbe interaction. Expand
A novel workflow correlating RNA-seq data to Phythophthora infestans resistance levels in wild Solanum species and potato clones
TLDR
This work built transcript families based on de novo assembled RNA-seq across species and clones and correlating these to resistance phenotypes, creating a novel workflow to identify families with expanded or depleted number of transcripts in relation to the P. infestans resistance level. Expand
Plant immunity in natural populations and agricultural fields: Low presence of pathogenesis-related proteins in Solanum leaves
TLDR
Status of immunity in plants without visible disease symptoms in wild populations of nightshades, Solanum dulcamara and Solanarum nigrum, and in agricultural fields of potato, S. tuberosum is reported, indicating major gaps in knowledge regarding the status and regulation of plant immunity under field conditions. Expand
Nongenetic Inheritance of Induced Resistance in a Wild Annual Plant.
TLDR
This study provides data on BABA induction and nongenetic inheritance of induced resistance in a wild relative of cultivated potato, implying that this factor might be important in the ecological and agricultural landscape. Expand
Isolation of Apoplast.
TLDR
This protocol, where leaves are infiltrated with phosphate buffer under vacuum, and the apoplast can be extracted by centrifugation and simultaneously collected in a protease inhibitor solution, results inTypically 3 μg of apoplastic proteins can be obtained in a volume of 300 μL from five potato leaflets, with minimal contamination by non-apoplasticprotein.

Late Blight Resistance Screening of Major Wild Swedish Solanum Species: S. dulcamara, S. nigrum, and S. physalifolium.
TLDR
In Sweden S. physalifolium is susceptible and could be a player in epidemiology, and a limited role of S. dulcamara leaves in the epidemiology of late blight was suggested, since no major symptoms have been found in the field. Expand
Host Attraction and Selection in the Swede Midge (Contarinia nasturtii)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the host specificity of gravid C. nasturtii females was initiated by the olfactory-driven host plant choice during oviposition, which might be the basis for the rapid speciation reported in the gall midge family. Expand
Stress biology and interactions between Solanum species and Phytophthora infestans
TLDR
To understand the prevalence of innate immunity activation in agriculture and nature, more than 500 apoplastic leaf samples isolated from S. nigrum and S. dulcamara were analysed for the presence of PR proteins and showed that only one third of the plants have the innate immunity activated. Expand
Phosphite protects against potato and tomato late blight in tropical climates and has varying toxicity depending on the Phytophthora infestans isolate
TLDR
Investigation of the efficacy of phosphite alone and in combination with conventional fungicide against late blight in two potato cultivars and one tomato cultivar found it was more effective against tomato late blight than against potato late blight, and gave the same protection as the fungicide in tomato. Expand
Understanding the Sorghum–Colletotrichum sublineola Interactions for Enhanced Host Resistance
TLDR
An overview of the current knowledge on the mechanisms of sorghum-C. Expand
