Development of a standard set of microsatellite reference alleles for identification of grape cultivars
In order to investigate the comparability of microsatellite profiles obtained in different laboratories, ten partners in seven countries analyzed 46 grape cultivars at six loci (VVMD5, VVMD7, VVMD27,Expand

Genetic linkage maps of two interspecific grape crosses (Vitis spp.) used to localize quantitative trait loci for downy mildew resistance
Two populations (Pop) segregating quantitatively for resistance to downy mildew (DM), caused by Plasmopara viticola, were used to construct genetic maps and to carry out quantitative trait locusExpand

Profiling of resveratrol oligomers, important stress metabolites, accumulating in the leaves of hybrid Vitis vinifera (Merzling × Teroldego) genotypes infected with Plasmopara viticola.
In the Vitaceae, viniferins represent a relatively restricted group of trans-resveratrol oligomers with antifungal properties, thus enabling plants to cope with pathogen attack. The aim of this studyExpand

Resistance to Plasmopara viticola in a grapevine segregating population is associated with stilbenoid accumulation and with specific host transcriptional responses
BackgroundDowny mildew, caused by the oomycete Plasmopara viticola, is a serious disease in Vitisvinifera, the most commonly cultivated grapevine species. Several wild Vitis species have instead beenExpand

Inhibition of Sporulation and Ultrastructural Alterations of Grapevine Downy Mildew by the Endophytic Fungus Alternaria alternata.
ABSTRACT One hundred twenty-six endophytic microorganisms isolated from grapevine leaves showing anomalous symptoms of downy mildew were tested on grapevine leaf disks as biocontrol agents againstExpand

Effect of water deficit and severe shoot trimming on the composition of Vitis vinifera L. Merlot grapes and wines
Background and Aims In recent years, increasing summer temperature, coupled with reduced and erratic rainfall during the growing season, has induced accelerated fruit ripening in several regions,Expand

The European "Vitis" Database (www.eu-vitis.de)- a technical innovation through an online uploading and interactive modification system
The objective of the European Vitis Database is to safeguard and enhance germplasm by monitoring its preservation. Two issues are strongly related to that purpose: (1) participation of collectionsExpand

Low night temperature effects on photosynthetic performance on two grapevine genotypes
The functional activities of the photosynthetic apparatus of two grapevine genotypes (Vitis vinifera L. cvs. Müller-Thurgau and Lagrein) were investigated after low night temperature (LNT) treatmentExpand

Characterisation of the grapevine cultivar Picolit by means of morphological descriptors and molecular markers
The phenotypic and genotypic variability of cv. Picolit, an ancient, female-flower cultivar from north-eastern Italy was investigated by means of ampelographic and ampelometric descriptors and byExpand
