Distribution and bioinformatic analysis of the cerato-platanin protein family in Dikarya
The cerato-platanin family is a group of small cysteine-rich fungal proteins new to science. They usually are abundantly secreted extracellularly and are involved in fungus-host interactions. WithExpand

Description of a new putative virus infecting the conifer pathogenic fungus Heterobasidion parviporum with resemblance to Heterobasidion annosum P-type partitivirus
The complete sequences of two double-stranded RNA segments from the fungus Heterobasidion parviporum were characterized. The larger segment (2,290 bp) contained an open reading frame encoding aExpand

Antimicrobial defenses and resistance in forest trees: challenges and perspectives in a genomic era.
Molecular pathology of forest trees for a long time lagged behind parallel studies on agricultural crop pathology. Recent technological advances have significantly contributed to the observedExpand

Role of the HaHOG1 MAP Kinase in Response of the Conifer Root and But Rot Pathogen (Heterobasidion annosum) to Osmotic and Oxidative Stress
The basidiomycete Heterobasidion annosum (Fr.) Bref. s.l. is a filamentous white rot fungus, considered to be the most economically important pathogen of conifer trees. Despite the severity of theExpand

Activation of defence pathways in Scots pine bark after feeding by pine weevil (Hylobius abietis)
BackgroundDuring their lifetime, conifer trees are exposed to numerous herbivorous insects. To protect themselves against pests, trees have developed a broad repertoire of protective mechanisms. ManyExpand

Endophytic fungi of Norway spruce roots in boreal pristine mire, drained peatland and mineral soil and their inhibitory effect on Heterobasidion parviporum in vitro
Most of the spruce-dominated pristine mires in South Finland have been drained for forestry, and a large proportion of these forest stands are currently approaching regeneration maturity. WeExpand

Biological degradation of torrefied wood and charcoal
Torrefaction is an interesting option to pretreat biomass in order to obtain a fuel with improved handling and combustion characteristics, but there are a number of questions related to the supplyExpand

A Gene Encoding Scots Pine Antimicrobial Protein Sp-AMP2 (PR-19) Confers Increased Tolerance against Botrytis cinerea in Transgenic Tobacco
Both the establishment of sustainable forestry practices and the improvement of commercially grown trees require better understanding of mechanisms used by forest trees to combat microbial pathogens.Expand

Multiplex qPCR for detection and quantification of Sphaerulina musiva in Populus stems
Septoria canker is one of the major limiting factors in the use of hybrid poplar in agroforestry. The use of qPCR for quantification of fungal biomass in host tissue following infection can improveExpand
