Cytology and ultrastructure of the infection of wheat spikes by Fusarium culmorum
TLDR
During colonisation of the wheat spike, a series of alterations occurred in host tissues, including degeneration of host cytoplasm and organelles, collapse of parenchyma cells, disintegration or digestion of host cell walls and appearance of electron-dense coating materials on vessel walls. Expand
Functional Analysis of the Kinome of the Wheat Scab Fungus Fusarium graminearum
TLDR
This is the first functional characterization of the kinome in plant pathogenic fungi and uses the interlog approach to predict the PK-PK and PK-protein interaction networks of F. graminearum. Expand
High genome heterozygosity and endemic genetic recombination in the wheat stripe rust fungus
TLDR
The results show the effectiveness of the ‘ fosmid-to-fosmid’ strategy for sequencing dikaryotic genomes and the feasibility of genome analysis to understand race evolution in Pst and other obligate pathogens. Expand
Ultrastructural and immunocytochemical investigation of pathogen development and host responses in resistant and susceptible wheat spikes infected by Fusarium culmorum
TLDR
It is indicated that the FHB resistant cultivars are able to develop active defence reactions during infection and spreading of the pathogen in the host tissues which results from the host’s defence mechanisms. Expand
Studies on Symptom Development, Phenolic Compounds and Morphological Defence Responses in Wheat Cultivars Differing in Resistance to Fusarium Head Blight
TLDR
Significantly higher amounts of free phenolic compounds were found in the glumes, lemmas and paleas of Frontana prior to and at all sampling times after inoculation, in comparison to the winter wheat cultivar Agent. Expand
SSR and STS markers for wheat stripe rust resistance gene Yr26
TLDR
Screening SSR and EST-based STS markers closely linked with Yr26 indicated that the flanking markers should be useful in marker-assisted selection for incorporating Yr 26 into wheat cultivars. Expand
Ultrastructural and Cytochemical Studies on Cellulose, Xylan and Pectin Degradation in Wheat Spikes Infected by Fusarium culmorum
TLDR
Results provide evidence that F. culmorum may produce cell-wall-degrading enzymes such as cellulases, xylanases and pectinases during infection and colonization of wheat spikes tissues. Expand
The HDF1 histone deacetylase gene is important for conidiation, sexual reproduction, and pathogenesis in Fusarium graminearum.
TLDR
The results indicate that HDF1 is the major class II HDAC gene in F. graminearum and may interact with FTL1 and function as a component in a well-conserved HDAC complex in the regulation of conidiation, DON production, and pathogenesis. Expand
Immunocytochemical localization of fusarium toxins in infected wheat spikes by Fusarium culmorum
TLDR
Toxin accumulation showed a very close relationship with pathogenic changes in host cells, symptom appearance and colonization of host tissues by hyphae, suggesting that the toxins might play an important role in the disease development. Expand
Characterization of a pathogenesis-related thaumatin-like protein gene TaPR5 from wheat induced by stripe rust fungus.
TLDR
Quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction (qRT-PCR) analyses revealed that TaPR5 transcript is significantly induced and upregulated in the incompatible interaction while in the compatible interaction a relative low level of the transcript was detected. Expand
