Endosymbiotic gene transfer: organelle genomes forge eukaryotic chromosomes
Genome sequences reveal that a deluge of DNA from organelles has constantly been bombarding the nucleus since the origin of organelles. Recent experiments have shown that DNA is transferred fromExpand

Haustorially Expressed Secreted Proteins from Flax Rust Are Highly Enriched for Avirulence Elicitors[W]
Rust fungi, obligate biotrophs that cause disease and yield losses in crops such as cereals and soybean (Glycine max), obtain nutrients from the host through haustoria, which are specializedExpand

Direct protein interaction underlies gene-for-gene specificity and coevolution of the flax resistance genes and flax rust avirulence genes.
Plant resistance proteins (R proteins) recognize corresponding pathogen avirulence (Avr) proteins either indirectly through detection of changes in their host protein targets or through direct R-AvrExpand

The Melampsora lini AvrL567 Avirulence Genes Are Expressed in Haustoria and Their Products Are Recognized inside Plant Cells
The Linum usitatissimum (flax) L gene alleles, which encode nucleotide binding site–Leu rich repeat class intracellular receptor proteins, confer resistance against the Melampsora lini (flax rust)Expand

The L6 gene for flax rust resistance is related to the Arabidopsis bacterial resistance gene RPS2 and the tobacco viral resistance gene N.
The L6 rust resistance gene from flax was cloned after tagging with the maize transposable element Activator. The gene is predicted to encode two products of 1294 and 705 amino acids that result fromExpand

Direct measurement of the transfer rate of chloroplast DNA into the nucleus
Gene transfer from the chloroplast to the nucleus has occurred over evolutionary time. Functional gene establishment in the nucleus is rare, but DNA transfer without functionality is presumably moreExpand

Inactivation of the flax rust resistance gene M associated with loss of a repeated unit within the leucine-rich repeat coding region.
The M rust resistance gene from flax was cloned after two separate approaches, an analysis of spontaneous M mutants with an L6 gene-derived DNA probe and tagging with the maize transposon Activator,Expand

Nonhost resistance of rice to rust pathogens.
Rice is atypical in that it is an agricultural cereal that is immune to fungal rust diseases. This report demonstrates that several cereal rust species (Puccinia graminis f. sp tritici, P. triticina,Expand

The wheat Sr50 gene reveals rich diversity at a cereal disease resistance locus.
We identify the wheat stem rust resistance gene Sr50 (using physical mapping, mutation and complementation) as homologous to barley Mla, encoding a coiled-coil nucleotide-binding leucine-rich repeatExpand

Heteroduplex molecules formed between allelic sequences cause nonparental RAPD bands.
Primers (10-mers) of random sequence were used to amplify RAPD bands from genomic DNA of an F1 strain of flax rust (Melampsora lini) and its two parent strains. One primer out of 160 tested wasExpand
