Harmful algal blooms cause serious problems worldwide due to large quantities of cyanotoxins produced by cyanobacteria in eutrophic water. In this study, a new compound named 2-(3, 4-dihydroxy-2-methoxyphenyl)-1, 3-benzodioxole-5-carbaldehyde (Compound 1), together with one known compound, 3, 4-dihydroxybenzalacetone (DBL), was purified from Phellinus(More)
Harpins, encoded by hrp (hypersensitive response and pathogenicity) genes of Gram-negative plant pathogens, are elicitors of hypersensitive response (HR). HpaXm is a novel harpin-like protein described from cotton leaf blight bacteria, Xanthomonas citri subsp. malvacearum-a synonym of X. campestris pv. malvacearum (Smith 1901-1978). A putative signal(More)
Powdery mildew is an important disease of rubber trees caused by Oidium heveae B. A. Steinmann. As far as we know, none of the resistance genes related to powdery mildew have been isolated from the rubber tree. There is little information available at the molecular level regarding how a rubber tree develops defense mechanisms against this pathogen. We have(More)
Harpin proteins encoded by hrp genes are bacterial protein elicitors that can stimulate hypersensitive response (HR) in non-host plants. HR-related pathogen resistance involves a complex form of programmed cell death (PCD). It is increasingly viewed as a key component of the hypersensitive disease response of plants. Currently, the evidence of harpin(More)
