Microbial phenazine production enhances electron transfer in biofuel cells.
TLDR
The finding that one bacterium can produce electron shuttles, which can be used also by other bacteria, to enhance electron-transfer rate and growth, has not been shown before and has considerable implications with respect to the power output attainable in MFCs.
Abscisic Acid Determines Basal Susceptibility of Tomato toBotrytis cinerea and Suppresses Salicylic Acid-Dependent Signaling Mechanisms1
Abscisic acid (ABA) is one of the plant hormones involved in the interaction between plants and pathogens. In this work, we show that tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cv Moneymaker) mutants with
Synergistic Degradation of Linuron by a Bacterial Consortium and Isolation of a Single Linuron-Degrading Variovorax Strain
TLDR
To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of a strain that degrades linuron further than the aromatic intermediates, and the rate of linuron degradation by strain WDL1 was lower than that for the consortium, but was clearly increased when W DL1 was coinoculated with each of the other four strains.
Resistance to Botrytis cinerea in sitiens, an Abscisic Acid-Deficient Tomato Mutant, Involves Timely Production of Hydrogen Peroxide and Cell Wall Modifications in the Epidermis1[C][W][OA]
TLDR
Although, in general, plant defense-related reactive oxygen species formation facilitates necrotrophic colonization, data indicate that timely hyperinduction of H2O2-dependent defenses in the epidermal cell wall can effectively block early development of B. cinerea.
The Jasmonate Pathway Is a Key Player in Systemically Induced Defense against Root Knot Nematodes in Rice1[C]
TLDR
When the exogenous defense inducers ethephon and methyl jasmonate were supplied to the plant, the nematode was less effective in counteracting root defense pathways, hence making the plant more resistant to nematodes infection.
Towards establishing broad-spectrum disease resistance in plants: silicon leads the way.
TLDR
Silicon-induced regulatory mechanisms that might account for broad-spectrum plant disease resistance are described and further elucidating how silicon exerts its beneficial properties may create new avenues for developing plants that are better able to withstand multiple attackers.
Induction of systemic resistance to Botrytis cinerea in tomato by Pseudomonas aeruginosa 7NSK2: role of salicylic acid, pyochelin, and pyocyanin.
TLDR
Results suggest that pyocyanin and Pch, rather than SA, are the determinants for induced resistance in wild-type P. aeruginosa 7NSK2.
Global switches and fine-tuning-ABA modulates plant pathogen defense.
TLDR
This article aims to evaluate and review the reported modes of ABA action on pathogen defense and highlight recent advances in deciphering the complex role of A BA in plant-pathogen interactions.
Determinants of Pseudomonas putida WCS358 involved in inducing systemic resistance in plants.
TLDR
Strain WCS358 significantly reduced disease development in all three systems, indicating that also on tomato and bean WCS358 can trigger ISR.
