Enhanced resistance to blast (Magnaporthe grisea) in transgenic Japonica rice by constitutive expression of rice chitinase
Abstract Rice blast is the most devastating plant disease in Japan. Our goal is to create new rice varieties which show enhanced resistance against blast, regardless of the race of blast. By anExpand

Transgenic grapevine plants expressing a rice chitinase with enhanced resistance to fungal pathogens
Abstract The rice chitinase gene (RCC2), classified as class I chitinase, was introduced into the somatic embryos of grapevine (Vitis vinifera L. cv. Neo Muscut) by Agrobacterium infection. AfterExpand

Isolation from Tobacco Mosaic Virus-Infected Tobacco of a Solubilized Template-Specific RNA-Dependent RNA Polymerase Containing a 126K/183K Protein Heterodimer
ABSTRACT The complete nucleotide sequence was determined for the putative RNA polymerase (183K protein) gene of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) OM strain, which differed from the related strain, vulgare,Expand

Transgenic cucumber plants harboring a rice chitinase gene exhibit enhanced resistance to gray mold (Botrytis cinerea)
Abstract A rice chitinase cDNA (RCC2) driven by the CaMV 35S promoter was introduced into cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.) through Agrobacterium mediation. More than 200 putative transgenic shoots wereExpand

Similarity between Copper Resistance Genes from Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae and P. syringae pv. tomato
Twenty-eight strains of Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae isolated in 1984, 1987 and 1988 from kiwifruit orchards in Japan were tested for their resistance to copper sulfate. All strains isolatedExpand

Identification of a novel tobacco DnaJ-like protein that interacts with the movement protein of tobacco mosaic virus
The movement protein (MP) of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) mediates the transport of viral RNA from infected cells to neighboring uninfected cells via plasmodesmata by interacting with putative hostExpand

'Candidatus phytoplasma ziziphi', a novel phytoplasma taxon associated with jujube witches'-broom disease.
Phylogenetic relationships of five jujube witches'-broom (JWB) phytoplasma isolates from four different districts, and other phytoplasmas, were investigated by 16S rDNA PCR amplification and sequenceExpand
