Phytophthora Genome Sequences Uncover Evolutionary Origins and Mechanisms of Pathogenesis
Draft genome sequences have been determined for the soybean pathogen Phytophthora sojae and the sudden oak death pathogen Phytophthora ramorum. Oömycetes such as these Phytophthora species share theExpand

Expression of a Phytophthora sojae necrosis-inducing protein occurs during transition from biotrophy to necrotrophy.
Phytophthora sojae is an oomycete that causes stem and root rot on soybean plants. To discover pathogen factors that produce disease symptoms or activate plant defense responses, we identifiedExpand

Stevia rebaudiana: Its agricultural, biological, and chemical properties
Stevia rebaudiana is a member of the Compositae, native to Paraguay. It produces a number of high-potency low-calorie sweeteners in its leaf tissue. The sweeteners are diterpene glycosides and rangeExpand

Patterns of gene expression upon infection of soybean plants by Phytophthora sojae.
To investigate patterns of gene expression in soybean (Glycine max) and Phytophthora sojae during an infection time course, we constructed a 4,896-gene microarray of host and pathogen cDNAExpand

Phytotoxicity and Innate Immune Responses Induced by Nep1-Like Proteins[W]
We show that oomycete-derived Nep1 (for necrosis and ethylene-inducing peptide1)–like proteins (NLPs) trigger a comprehensive immune response in Arabidopsis thaliana, comprising posttranslationalExpand

Cracks in the palisade cuticle of soybean seed coats correlate with their permeability to water.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Soybean (Glycine max) is among the many legumes that are well known for 'hardseededness'. This feature can be beneficial for long-term seed survival, but is undesirable for theExpand

Copy Number Variation and Transcriptional Polymorphisms of Phytophthora sojae RXLR Effector Genes Avr1a and Avr3a
The importance of segmental duplications and copy number variants as a source of genetic and phenotypic variation is gaining greater appreciation, in a variety of organisms. Now, we have identifiedExpand

Comparative analysis of expressed sequences in Phytophthora sojae.
Phytophthora sojae (Kaufmann and Gerdemann) is an oomycete that causes stem and root rot on soybean (Glycine max L. Merr) plants. We have constructed three cDNA libraries using mRNA isolated fromExpand

Nep1-like proteins from plant pathogens: recruitment and diversification of the NPP1 domain across taxa.
An emerging group of proteins found in many plant pathogens are related to their ability to cause plant cell death. These proteins may be identified by the presence of a common NPP1Expand

Transgenerational gene silencing causes gain of virulence in a plant pathogen
Avirulence (Avr) genes of plant pathogens encode effector proteins that trigger immunity in plants carrying appropriate resistance (R) genes. The Phytophthora sojae Avr3a gene displays allelicExpand
