Sub1A is an ethylene-response-factor-like gene that confers submergence tolerance to rice
Most Oryza sativa cultivars die within a week of complete submergence—a major constraint to rice production in south and southeast Asia that causes annual losses of over US$1 billion and affectsExpand

Saturated molecular map of the rice genome based on an interspecific backcross population.
A molecular map has been constructed for the rice genome comprised of 726 markers (mainly restriction fragment length polymorphisms; RFLPs). The mapping population was derived from a backcrossExpand

A Variable Cluster of Ethylene Response Factor–Like Genes Regulates Metabolic and Developmental Acclimation Responses to Submergence in Rice[W]
Submergence-1 (Sub1), a major quantitative trait locus affecting tolerance to complete submergence in lowland rice (Oryza sativa), contains two or three ethylene response factor (ERF)–like genesExpand

Xanthomonas oryzae pathovars: model pathogens of a model crop.
SUMMARY Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae and Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzicola cause bacterial blight and bacterial leaf streak of rice (Oryza sativa), which constrain production of this staple crop inExpand

Overexpression of a rice NPR1 homolog leads to constitutive activation of defense response and hypersensitivity to light.
Arabidopsis NPR1/NIM1 is a key regulator of systemic acquired resistance (SAR), which confers lasting broad-spectrum resistance. Previous reports indicate that rice has a disease-resistance pathwayExpand

Evidence for a disease-resistance pathway in rice similar to the NPR1-mediated signaling pathway in Arabidopsis.
The Arabidopsis NPR1/NIM1 gene is a key regulator of systemic acquired resistance (SAR). Over-expression of NPR1 leads to enhanced resistance in Arabidopsis. To investigate the role of NPR1 inExpand

A Type I–Secreted, Sulfated Peptide Triggers XA21-Mediated Innate Immunity
Bacterial Trigger of Plant Protection Innate immunity can be rapidly activated to defend a host plant against a microbial pathogen. The rice protein XA21, which is thought to be a cellExpand

Plant Defense Against Herbivores : Chemical Aspects
Plants have evolved a plethora of different chemical defenses covering nearly all classes of (secondary) metabolites that represent a major barrier to herbivory: Some are constitutive; others areExpand

Genetic and physical analysis of the rice bacterial blight disease resistance locus, Xa21
SummaryNearly isogenic lines (NILs) of rice (Oryza sativa) differing at a locus conferring resistance to the pathogen Xanthomonas oryzae pv. oryzae were surveyed with 123 DNA markers and 985 randomExpand

Evolution of the rice Xa21 disease resistance gene family.
The rice disease resistance gene Xa21, encoding a receptor-like kinase, is a member of a multigene family. Sequence analysis of seven family members revealed two distinct classes of genes. One memberExpand
