NPS6, Encoding a Nonribosomal Peptide Synthetase Involved in Siderophore-Mediated Iron Metabolism, Is a Conserved Virulence Determinant of Plant Pathogenic Ascomycetes[W]
NPS6, encoding a nonribosomal peptide synthetase, is a virulence determinant in the maize (Zea mays) pathogen Cochliobolus heterostrophus and is involved in tolerance to H2O2. Deletion of NPS6Expand

The txtAB genes of the plant pathogen Streptomyces acidiscabies encode a peptide synthetase required for phytotoxin thaxtomin A production and pathogenicity
Four Streptomyces species have been described as the causal agents of scab disease, which affects economically important root and tuber crops worldwide. These species produce a family of cyclicExpand

Loss of Plastoglobule Kinases ABC1K1 and ABC1K3 Causes Conditional Degreening, Modified Prenyl-Lipids, and Recruitment of the Jasmonic Acid Pathway[W]
ABC1K1 and ABC1K3, two of the six plastoglobule ABC1K kinases, physically interact, and the double mutant displays a conditional senescent-like phenotype. ABC1K1 and 3 regulate prenyl-lipidExpand

Cytochrome P450-catalysed L-tryptophan nitration in thaxtomin phytotoxin biosynthesis
Thaxtomin phytotoxins produced by plant-pathogenic Streptomyces species contain a nitro group that is essential for phytotoxicity. The N,N’-dimethyldiketopiperazine core of thaxtomins is assembledExpand

Behavioral effects of the entomopathogenic fungus, Entomophthora muscae on its host Musca domestica: Postural changes in dying hosts and gated pattern of mortality
Abstract Videotaped records of house flies dying from infection with the fungus Entomophthora muscae showed that flies typically die on the fourth or fifth day post-infection in elevated positions,Expand

Isolation of beauvericin as an insect toxin from Fusarium semitectum and Fusarium moniliforme var. subglutinans
Nonpolar methylene chloride-soluble extracts from the mycelia of Fusarium semitectum and Fusarium moniliforme var. subglutinans were toxic to Colorado potato beetles. The major toxic metabolite wasExpand
