Fumigant activity of volatiles of Streptomyces globisporus JK-1 against Penicillium italicum on Citrus microcarpa
Comparative Analysis of the Genomes of Two Field Isolates of the Rice Blast Fungus Magnaporthe oryzae
The results indicate that gain or loss of unique genes, DNA duplication, gene family expansion, and frequent translocation of transposon-like elements are important factors in genome variation of the rice blast fungus.
Induction of glutathione S-transferase genes of Nicotiana benthamiana following infection by Colletotrichum destructivum and C. orbiculare and involvement of one in resistance.
It is demonstrated that the different GST genes respond in different ways to fungal infection, and at least one plant GST gene has an important role in disease development.
Effects of volatile substances of Streptomyces globisporus JK-1 on control of Botrytis cinerea on tomato fruit.
Microbial populations and suppression of dollar spot disease in creeping bentgrass with inorganic and organic amendments
Application of Ringer fertilizers, ammonium nitrate, and sulfur-coated urea gave rise to significantly higher microbial populations on turfgrass leaves and in thatch and soil than did most other fertilizers.
Baseline sensitivity and cross-resistance to demethylation-inhibiting fungicides in Ontario isolates of Sclerotinia homoeocarpa
Testing of isolates of Sclerotinia homoeocarpa from eight populations in southern Ontario for sensitivity to the demethylation-inhibiting (DMI) fungicides found wide variations in sensitivities, and seven of the eight populations were very sensitive to the fungicides.
Induced systemic resistance against three foliar diseases of Agrostis stolonifera by (2R,3R)-butanediol or an isoparaffin mixture
Results indicate that both (2R,3R)-butanediol and PC1 can produce ISR in A. stolonifera but may do so through different mechanisms.
Comparison of induced resistance activated by benzothiadiazole, (2R,3R)-butanediol and an isoparaffin mixture against anthracnose of Nicotiana benthamiana
Results are consistent with the activation of salicylic-acid-dependent systemic acquired resistance (SAR) by BTH and that of jasmonate/ethylene-dependent induced systemic resistance (ISR), and show that (2R,3R)butanediol and PC1 can affect gene expression similarly to plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria.
Specific adaptation of Ustilaginoidea virens in occupying host florets revealed by comparative and functional genomics.
A draft genome sequence of U. virens is reported, showing that 18 candidate effectors can suppress plant hypersensitive responses and genes for secreted proteins and secondary metabolism and the pathogen-host interaction database genes are highly enriched in the transcriptome during early infection.
Comparison of relative RT-PCR and northern blot analyses to measure expression of β-1,3-glucanase inNicotiana benthamiana infected withColltotrichum destructivum
A high correlation was observed between the relative quantification of β-1,3-glucanase gene expression as determined by northern blot and relative RT-PCR analyses, demonstrating the validity of relative RT -PCR with a plant EF-1α gene as a control.
