Sclerenchyma cell thickening through enhanced lignification induced by OsMYB30 prevents fungal penetration of rice leaves.
OsMYB30 binds to and activates the promoters of 4-coumarate:coenzyme A ligase genes (Os4CL3 and Os4CL5) resulting in accumulation of lignin subunits G and S, inhibiting M. oryzae penetration at the early stage of infection. Expand
New insights into bsr‐d1‐mediated broad‐spectrum resistance to rice blast
A novel peroxidase‐encoding gene, Perox3, is identified as a new BSR‐D1 target gene that reduces resistance to M. oryzae when overexpressed in TP309, and provides new insights into the bsr‐d1‐mediated blast resistance. Expand
Safety evaluation of four entomopathogenic nematode species against two silkworm species
The results showed that among four Steinernema species, S. feltiae did not have an effect on the larval survival to the two silkworm species, whereas S. carpocapsae and S. glaseri did have a effect. Expand
A new species of Thismia (Thismiaceae) from Yunnan, China
Thismia Griffith (1844): 221 usually grows among leaf litter in shady wet forests and comprises 47 small mycoheterotrophic species and occurs mainly in tropical portions of America and Asia. Expand
Diversity and Specificity of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in the Rhizosphere of Six Plants in the Songnen Grassland, China
Differences in plant species and soil microenvironment were the main reasons explaining the specificity of the AMF in the rhizospheres of grassland plant species. Expand
Osmotic stress activated protein kinase 5 (SAPK5) positively regulates immune response and blast resistance in rice
Background The sucrose non-fermenting 1 (SNF1) related protein kinase 2 (SnRK2) family proteins are plant-specific Ser/Thr protein kinases that are mainly involved in response to abiotic stress.Expand
