Phytophthora cinnamomi is a devastating pathogen worldwide and phosphite (Phi), an analogue of phosphate (Pi) is highly effective in the control of this pathogen. Phi also interferes with Pi starvation responses (PSR), of which auxin signalling is an integral component. In the current study, the involvement of Pi and the auxin signalling pathways in host(More)
Phytophthora cinnamomi is one of the most devastating plant pathogens worldwide. Current control of P. cinnamomi in natural ecosystems primarily relies on chemical phosphite (Phi). To investigate host- and Phi-mediated resistance, A. thaliana ecotypes and mutants defective in salicylic acid (SA), jasmonic acid (JA), ethylene (ET) and abscisic acid (ABA)(More)
Bradyrhizobium sp. strain WSM1743 is an aerobic, motile, Gram-negative, non-spore-forming rod that can exist as a soil saprophyte or as a legume microsymbiont of an Indigofera sp. WSM1743 was isolated from a nodule recovered from the roots of an Indigofera sp. growing 20 km north of Carnarvon in Australia. It is slow growing, tolerates up to 1 % NaCl and is(More)
