Arabidopsis thaliana grown in soil amended with barley grain inocula of Penicillium simplicissimum GP17-2 or receiving root treatment with its culture filtrate (CF) exhibited clear resistance to Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato DC3000 (Pst). To assess the contribution of different defense pathways, Arabidopsis genotypes implicated in salicylic acid (SA)(More)
Plant growth-promoting fungi (PGPF) have the potential to confer several benefits to plants in terms of growth and protection against pests and pathogens. In the present study, we tested whether a PGPF isolate, Penicillium spp. GP15-1 (derived from zoysiagrass rhizospheres), stimulates growth and disease resistance in the cucumber plant. The use of the(More)
In Arabidopsis thaliana, significant efforts to determine the effect of naturally occurring variation between phenotypically divergent accessions on different biotic or abiotic stresses are underway. Although it is usually assumed that induced systemic resistance (ISR) against pathogen will covary with plant genetic variation, this assumption has not been(More)
Plant growth-promoting fungi (PGPF) are effective biocontrol agents for a number of soil-borne diseases and are known for their ability to trigger induced systemic resistance (ISR). In this study, we investigated the mechanisms triggered by PGPF Fusarium equiseti GF19-1, which is known to increase pathogen resistance in plants, by using GF19-1 spores and(More)
Because the six major known resistance genes to Asian soybean rust (ASR) are pathotype-specific, they rarely offer durable resistance to all ASR pathogens. Thus, other types of resistance such as field resistance or tolerance that confer broad-spectrum resistance to ASR pathogens are required for soybean breeding. The Chinese soybean variety Lu Pi Dou has a(More)
