  • 29 December 2009
TLDR
This work cloned Bph14, a gene conferring resistance to Brown planthopper at seedling and maturity stages of the rice plant, using a map-base cloning approach and shows that it encodes a coiled-coil, nucleotide-binding, and leucine-rich repeat (CC-NB-LRR) protein that might function in recognition of the BPH insect invasion and activating the defense response.

Knockdown of Midgut Genes by dsRNA-Transgenic Plant-Mediated RNA Interference in the Hemipteran Insect Nilaparvata lugens
TLDR
The results demonstrate the potential of dsRNA-mediated RNAi for field-level control of planthoppers, but appropriate target genes must be selected when designing the ds RNA-transgenic plants. Expand
Rice UDP-Glucose Pyrophosphorylase1 Is Essential for Pollen Callose Deposition and Its Cosuppression Results in a New Type of Thermosensitive Genic Male Sterility[W][OA]
TLDR
It is demonstrated that rice Ugp1 is required for callose deposition during PMC meiosis and bridges the apoplastic unloading pathway and pollen development. Expand
Herbivore-Induced Callose Deposition on the Sieve Plates of Rice: An Important Mechanism for Host Resistance1[W][OA]
TLDR
It is demonstrated that BPH feeding induces the deposition of callose on sieve plates in rice and that this is an important defense mechanism that prevents insects from ingesting phloem sap. Expand
High-resolution genetic mapping at the Bph15 locus for brown planthopper resistance in rice (Oryza sativa L.)
TLDR
A high-resolution genetic map of Bph15 is developed by positioning 21 DNA markers in the target chromosomal region to pave the way for positional cloning of this gene and serve as the basis for eventual isolation of the Bph 15 resistance gene. Expand
Understanding rice plant resistance to the Brown Planthopper (Nilaparvata lugens): A proteomic approach
TLDR
A quantitative mass‐spectrometry‐based proteomic approach was used for comparative analysis of expression profiles of proteins in rice leaf sheaths in responses to infestation by the brown planthopper, indicating that they have an efficient and specific defense mechanism. Expand
Bacterial Symbionts of the Brown Planthopper, Nilaparvata lugens (Homoptera: Delphacidae)
TLDR
The results provide indications of the diversity of the bacterial microbes harbored by the brown planthopper and of possible associations between specific bacterial microbes and biotypes of N. lugens. Expand
Differential gene expression in response to brown planthopper feeding in rice.
TLDR
Results indicate that BPH feeding induces plant responses which would take part in a jasmonic acid-independent pathway and crosstalk with those related to abiotic stress, pathogen invasion and phytohormone signaling pathways. Expand
Molecular mapping and genetic analysis of a rice brown planthopper (Nilaparvata lugens Stål) resistance gene.
TLDR
The chromosomal location of a BPH resistance gene in rice is determined using SSR and RFLP techniques and it is shown that a single dominant gene controlled the resistance of 'B14' to BPH. Expand
Allelic diversity in an NLR gene BPH9 enables rice to combat planthopper variation

  • Biology, Medicine
  • Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences
  • 24 October 2016
TLDR
Molecular cloning and characterization of a brown planthopper-resistance gene, BPH9, mapped on the long arm of rice chromosome 12 (12L), reveal a rice plant strategy for modifying the genetic information to gain the upper hand in the struggle against insect herbivores. Expand
