A genetic analysis of adult plant resistance to stripe rust in the wheat cultivar Kariega
The wheat cultivar Kariega expresses complete adult plant resistance to stripe rust in South Africa. The aim of this investigation was to determine the extent and nature of variability in stripe rustExpand
Plant-pathogen interactions: disease resistance in modern agriculture.
The growing human population will require a significant increase in agricultural production. This challenge is made more difficult by the fact that changes in the climatic and environmentalExpand
The effects of allelic variation at the Mla resistance locus in barley on the early development of Erysiphe graminis f.sp. hordei and host responses
The development of Erysiphe graminis f.sp. hordei isolate CC1 was followed on the susceptible barley variety Pallas, and the near-isogenic resistant varieties, P-01 (Mla1), P-02 (Mla3), P-03 (Mla6)Expand
Identification of adult plant resistance to stripe rust in the wheat cultivar Cappelle-Desprez
Following the appearance of stripe rust in South Africa in 1996, efforts have been made to identify new sources of durable resistance. The French cultivar Cappelle-Desprez has long been considered aExpand
QTL identification and microphenotype characterisation of the developmentally regulated yellow rust resistance in the UK wheat cultivar Guardian
Yellow rust (causal agent: Puccinia striiformis f.sp. tritici) resistance in the UK wheat cultivar Guardian is developmentally regulated, resistance increasing as the plant matures. Yellow rustExpand

The rust diseases have plagued cereal cultivation from the early days of domestication. Biblical accounts report on the plight of Hebrews resulting from severe rust epidemics, while the ancientExpand
The genetic characterisation of stripe rust resistance in the German wheat cultivar Alcedo
Stripe rust resistance in the German winter wheat cv. Alcedo has been described as durable, the resistance having remained effective when grown extensively in Germany and Eastern Europe between 1975Expand
Cefotaxime stimulates callus growth, embryogenesis and regeneration in hexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L Em. Thell)
Abstract The tissue culture responses of wheat are known to be affected by the type and concentration of growth regulator in the medium and the genotype of the tissues in culture. In this report theExpand
BED-domain-containing immune receptors confer diverse resistance spectra to yellow rust
Crop diseases reduce wheat yields by ~25% globally and thus pose a major threat to global food security1. Genetic resistance can reduce crop losses in the field and can be selected through the use ofExpand
Broad-spectrum acquired resistance in barley induced by the Pseudomonas pathosystem shares transcriptional components with Arabidopsis systemic acquired resistance.
Inducible resistance responses play a central role in the defense of plants against pathogen attack. Acquired resistance (AR) is induced alongside defense toward primary attack, providingExpand
