Lesion mimic mutants of rice with alterations in early signaling events of defense.
We screened 93 lesion mimic mutants of rice for resistance to the blast fungus, Magnaporthe grisea, and found eight mutants that exhibited significant resistance to the fungus. We called theseExpand

Identification of a Biosynthetic Gene Cluster in Rice for Momilactones*
Rice diterpenoid phytoalexins such as momilactones and phytocassanes are produced in suspension-cultured rice cells treated with a chitin oligosaccharide elicitor and in rice leaves irradiated withExpand

Involvement of Jasmonic Acid in Elicitor-Induced Phytoalexin Production in Suspension-Cultured Rice Cells
It has been suggested that jasmonic acid (JA) could be an integral part of a general signal transduction system regulating inducible defense genes in plants. It was reported that treatment with anExpand

Induced accumulation of 2-hydroxy-4,7-dimethoxy-1,4-benzoxazin-3-one glucoside (HDMBOA-Glc) in maize leaves.
Accumulation of 2-(2-hydroxy-4,7-dimethoxy-1,4-benzoxazin-3-one)-beta-D-glucopyranose (HDMBOA-Glc) was induced in maize leaves by treatment with CuCl2, chitopentaose, penta-N-acetylchitopentaose, orExpand

Response of Saccharomyces cerevisiae to a monoterpene: evaluation of antifungal potential by DNA microarray analysis.
Plant-derived essential oils with monoterpenoids have been used as antifungal drugs since ancient times, but the mode of action of these natural hydrocarbons at the molecular level is not understood.Expand

Coronatine elicits phytoalexin production in rice leaves (Oryza sativa L.) in the same manner as jasmonic acid.
The phytotoxin coronatine induced the accumulation of the flavonoid phytoalexins sakuranetin and momilactone A in rice leaves. Coronatine-inducible sakuranetin production was under the control ofExpand

Momilactones A and B in Rice Straw Harvested at Different Growth Stages.
Momilactones A and B in rice straw harvested at different growth stages were quantified by HPLC-MS-MS. They increased to their maximal levels at the heading stage and then gradually decreased. InExpand

Accumulation of salicylic acid, jasmonic acid and phytoalexins in rice, Oryza sativa, infested by the white-backed planthopper, Sogatella furcifera (Hemiptera: Delphacidae)
In order to clarify the mechanism of induced resistance to blast disease in rice, Oryza sativa, that had been previously infested by the white-backed planthopper, Sogatella furcifera Horváth, weExpand

Phytoalexin production elicited by exogenously applied jasmonic acid in rice leaves (Oryza sativa L.) is under the control of cytokinins and ascorbic acid
Jasmonic acid (JA) has been shown to be a signaling compound which elicits the production of secondary metabolites including phytoalexins in plants. It has been shown that the phytoalexin productionExpand

Purification and Identification of Antimicrobial Sesquiterpene Lactones from Yacon (Smallanthus sonchifolius) Leaves
The extraction of yacon [Smallanthus sonchifolius (Poepp. and Endl.) H. Robinson; Asteraceae] leaves and chromatographic separation yielded two new antibacterial melampolide-type sesquiterpeneExpand
