Biochemical changes during the development of witches' broom: the most important disease of cocoa in Brazil caused by Crinipellis perniciosa.
Witches' broom disease (WBD) is caused by the hemibiotrophic basidiomycete fungus Crinipellis perniciosa, which is one of the most important diseases of cocoa in the western hemisphere. In thisExpand
Characterization of necrosis and ethylene-inducing proteins (NEP) in the basidiomycete Moniliophthora perniciosa, the causal agent of witches' broom in Theobroma cacao.
The hemibiotrophic basidiomycete Moniliophthora perniciosa causes witches' broom disease of Theobroma cacao. Analysis of the M. perniciosa draft genome led to the identification of three putativeExpand
Moniliophthora perniciosa, the causal agent of witches' broom disease of cacao: what's new from this old foe?
UNLABELLED Moniliophthora perniciosa (=Crinipellis perniciosa) causes one of the three main fungal diseases of Theobroma cacao (cacao), the source of chocolate. This pathogen causes Witches' broomExpand
Molecular characterization of an international cacao collection using microsatellite markers
Plant germplasm collections invariably contain varying levels of genetic redundancy, which hinders the efficient conservation and utilization of plant germplasm. Reduction of genetic redundancies isExpand
The mitochondrial genome of the phytopathogenic basidiomycete Moniliophthora perniciosa is 109 kb in size and contains a stable integrated plasmid.
We present here the sequence of the mitochondrial genome of the basidiomycete phytopathogenic hemibiotrophic fungus Moniliophthora perniciosa, causal agent of the Witches' Broom Disease in TheobromaExpand
Involvement of calcium oxalate degradation during programmed cell death in Theobroma cacao tissues triggered by the hemibiotrophic fungus Moniliophthora perniciosa
Moniliophthora perniciosa, the causal agent of witches’ broom disease of Theobroma cacao, significantly affected cacao production in South America and Caribbean countries. Host colonization by theExpand
Genetic characterization of guava (Psidium guajava L.) germplasm in the United States using microsatellite markers
Genetic diversity of 35 Psidium guajava L. accessions and three related species (P. guineense Sw., P. sartorianum (O. Berg) Nied. and P. friedrichsthalianum (O. Berg) Nied.) maintained at the U.S.Expand
Molecular cloning and characterization of a sym plasmid locus that regulates cultivar‐specific nodulation of soybean by Rhizobium fredii USDA257
Rhizobium fredii strain USDA257 produces nitrogen‐fixing nodules on primitive soybean cultivars such as Peking but fails to nodulate agronomically improved cultivars such as McCall. TransposonmutantExpand
Genetic diversity and parentage in farmer varieties of cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) from Honduras and Nicaragua as revealed by single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers
Cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) is the main source for chocolate with an annual production of four million tons worldwide. This Neotropical tree crop was domesticated in Mesoamerica as far back as 3,000Expand
Global analyses of Ceratocystis cacaofunesta mitochondria: from genome to proteome
TLDR
The Cacaofunesta mitochondrial genome consists of a single, 103,147-bp circular molecule, making this the second largest mtDNA among the Sordariomycetes. Expand
