The infection process of bacterial blight of anthurium was monitored with a bioluminescent strain of Xanthomonas campestris pv. dieffenbachiae. The relationship between symptom expression on infected leaves (assessed visually) and the extent of bacterial movement within tissues (evaluated by bioluminescence emission) varied among anthurium cultivars. In(More)
ABSTRACT Effects of single versus multiple biological control agents (BCAs) on suppression of bacterial blight of anthurium were studied using a bioluminescent strain (V108LRUH1) of Xanthomonas campestris pv. dieffenbachiae. When five BCAs (GUT3, GUT4, GUT5, GUT6, and GUT9) were coinoculated in various combinations with V108LRUH1 into filter-sterilized(More)
ABSTRACT Suppressive effects of soil amendment with residues of 12 cultivars of Brassica rapa on damping-off of sugar beet were evaluated in soils infested with Rhizoctonia solani. Residues of clover and peanut were tested as noncruciferous controls. The incidence of damping-off was significantly and consistently suppressed in the soils amended with(More)
Effects of soil pH on damping-off of sugar beet by R. solani (AG2-2) and soil suppressiveness against the disease were studied by comparing disease incidences in pasteurized versus non-pasteurized, infested soils. Soil pH was correlated neither to disease incidence in five soils ranging from pH 4.5 to 7.2 nor to indigenous disease suppressiveness, the(More)
ABSTRACT Effect of temperature on leaf colonization in anthurium blight was studied using a bioluminescent strain of Xanthomonas campestris pv. dieffenbachiae. In a susceptible cultivar, colonization of leaf tissues (monitored by detection of bioluminescence) and symptom development (assessed visually) advanced rapidly at higher temperatures. For a(More)
The success of the Journal of General Plant Pathology largely depends on the quality of manuscripts submitted by authors, on the careful review by associate editors, and on the painstaking proofreading by editorial managers. We express special and sincere appreciation to Dr. Beth E. Hazen (U.S.A.) for her great efforts in correcting the English in the(More)
Cells of Ralstonia solanacearum were exposed to Cu in distilled water, and the resulting Cu-stressed non-culturable cells were inoculated to natural (non-pasteurized) and pasteurized soils in order to examine their culturability and recovery. Exposing the cells to 20 μM CuSO4 produced transitory non-culturable cells, which exhibited a remarkable recovery in(More)
OBJECTIVE The establishment of an optimal strategy for elderly patients with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) is currently an important issue. Particularly in very elderly (VE) patients, ADHF is associated with a poor prognosis. We therefore aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the early use of tolvaptan (TLV) in VE patients. METHODS Of(More)
Effects of soil amendments with crop residues on suppression of damping-off of sugar beet were examined by growing the seedlings in pasteurized, Rhizoctonia solani (AG2-2 IIIB)-infested soil at different temperatures. Dried residues of five dasheen or taro (Colocasia esculenta (L.) Schott) cultivars were compared with those of peanut (Arachys hypogaea L.)(More)
