Specific HR-associated recognition of secreted proteins from Cladosporium fulvum occurs in both host and non-host plants.
Plant resistance to the pathogenic fungus Cladosporium fulvum and the results indicate that plants have a highly effective surveillance system for the presence of 'foreign' proteins, which can explain the complex gene-for-gene relationships frequently observed in pathosystems. Expand
Colletotrichum - names in current use
This paper is the first summary treatment of Colletotrichum to incorporate data generated through DNA analysis and phylogenetic systematics and serves to provide a new starting point for usage of current names in Collettrichum and indicates future work needed. Expand
Comparison of relative RT-PCR and northern blot analyses to measure expression of β-1,3-glucanase inNicotiana benthamiana infected withColltotrichum destructivum
A high correlation was observed between the relative quantification of β-1,3-glucanase gene expression as determined by northern blot and relative RT-PCR analyses, demonstrating the validity of relative RT -PCR with a plant EF-1α gene as a control. Expand
Comparison of induced resistance activated by benzothiadiazole, (2R,3R)-butanediol and an isoparaffin mixture against anthracnose of Nicotiana benthamiana
Results are consistent with the activation of salicylic-acid-dependent systemic acquired resistance (SAR) by BTH and that of jasmonate/ethylene-dependent induced systemic resistance (ISR), and show that (2R,3R)­butanediol and PC1 can affect gene expression similarly to plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria.

Co-infection and induction of systemic acquired resistance by weakly and highly virulent isolates ofLeptosphaeria maculansin oilseed rape
It is concluded that the WV type can coinfect and coexist with the HV type within a single lesion in leaves and inoculation of the Wv type can induce systemic acquired resistance (SAR) in oilseed rape to the Hv type, the first report of SAR in oil Seed Rape. Expand
Entomopathogenic fungi as potential biocontrol agents of the ecto-parasitic mite, Varroa destructor, and their effect on the immune response of honey bees (Apis mellifera L.).
Entomopathogenic fungi could reduce varroa mite damage to honey bee brood by both infecting the parasite and preventingvarroa-associated suppression of honey bee immunity. Expand
Successful search for a resistance gene in tomato targeted against a virulence factor of a fungal pathogen.
A targeted search for hypersensitive response (HR)-based resistance among a collection of tomato genotypes is identified and it is expected that the Cf-ECP2 gene operates through recognition of an important virulence factor, and will confer durable resistance against C. fulvum. Expand
Recent advances in the molecular genetics of plant cell wall-degrading enzymes produced by plant pathogenic fungi
A new approach using recombinant DNA techniques has been employed to try to provide more conclusive evidence concerning the role of CWDE in plant pathogenesis. Expand
Hemibiotrophic infection and identity of the fungus, Colletotrichum destructivum , causing anthracnose of tobacco
The causal agent of tobacco anthracnose was identified as Colletotrichum destructivum based on the morphology of the fungus and a comparison of the sequence of the rDNA ITS with those of otherExpand
Induced systemic resistance against three foliar diseases of Agrostis stolonifera by (2R,3R)-butanediol or an isoparaffin mixture
Results indicate that both (2R,3R)-butanediol and PC1 can produce ISR in A. stolonifera but may do so through different mechanisms. Expand
