Chitinases are known to play an important role in many host-pathogen interactions. To reveal the defense associated role of chitinases in sugarcane during interaction with Colletotrichum falcatum causing red rot, detailed studies were conducted on the expression of chitinases in sugarcane cultivars varying in disease resistance, their characterization and(More)
A suppression subtractive hybridization technique was used to identify differentially expressed genes in sugarcane in response to Colletotrichum falcatum, the fungal pathogen causing red rot in sugarcane. Messenger RNA (mRNA) samples collected from red rot resistant cv. Co 93009 at 6, 12, 24 and 48 h after pathogen challenge were pooled together and used as(More)
Scrub typhus is a rickettsial infection caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi that belongs to the family Rickettsiaceae and transmitted by some species of trombiculid mites "chiggers", particularly a Leptotrombidium deliense. A necrotic eschar at the inoculating site of the mite is pathognomic of Scrub typhus. Scrub typhus is a zoonosis and is a widespread(More)
