The Top 10 fungal pathogens in molecular plant pathology.
TLDR
A short resumé of each fungus in the Top 10 list and its importance is presented, with the intent of initiating discussion and debate amongst the plant mycology community, as well as laying down a bench-mark. Expand
Detection of Virulence to Wheat Stem Rust Resistance Gene Sr31 in Puccinia graminis. f. sp. tritici in Uganda.
TLDR
Pathogenicity of Pgt-Ug99 was studied in seedling tests of available wheats containing Sr31, as well as other stem rust differential lines, and Virulence to the T. ventricosum-derived gene Sr38, which is linked to Lr37 and Yr17 and occurs in cultivars from Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, was not known previously. Expand
Detection of Virulence to Resistance Gene Sr24 Within Race TTKS of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici.
TLDR
The North American stem rust nomenclature system is proposed to be revised by the addition of four genes (Sr24, Sr31, Sr38, and SrMcN) as the fifth set and differentiates isolates within race TTKS into two separate races: TTKSK and TTKST, with avirulence and virulence on Sr24, respectively. Expand
Characterization of Seedling Infection Types and Adult Plant Infection Responses of Monogenic Sr Gene Lines to Race TTKS of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici.
TLDR
The results from this study were inconclusive for determining the effectiveness of resistance genes Sr9e, 14, 21, and 29 against race TTKS. Expand
Emergence and Spread of New Races of Wheat Stem Rust Fungus: Continued Threat to Food Security and Prospects of Genetic Control.
TLDR
Enhanced research in the last decade under the umbrella of the Borlaug Global Rust Initiative has identified various race-specific resistance genes that can be utilized, preferably in combinations, to develop resistant varieties. Expand
Detection of Virulence to Resistance Gene Sr36 Within the TTKS Race Lineage of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici.
TLDR
The occurrence of race TTTSK with combined virulence on Sr31 and Sr36 has further broadened the virulence spectrum of the TTKS lineage and rendered an important source of resistance ineffective. Expand
Challenges for sustainable cereal rust control in South Africa
TLDR
A national strategy for cereal rust control, with particular emphasis on pathogen and host resources, and breeding for resistance, is urgently needed because of significant losses in commercial wheat production over the past 10 years. Expand
First Report of a New TTKSF Race of Wheat Stem Rust (Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici) in South Africa and Zimbabwe.
TLDR
TTKSF+ is the eighth race detected in the Ug99 group of Puccinia graminis f. Expand
A genetic analysis of adult plant resistance to stripe rust in the wheat cultivar Kariega
TLDR
Analysis of field data for adult plant stripe rust resistance identified two major and two minor QTLs in the resistant cultivar Kariega, and the results of the QTL analysis demonstrate its higher resolution power compared to the mixture model analysis by detecting the presence of minorQTLs. Expand
Identification of adult plant resistance to stripe rust in the wheat cultivar Cappelle-Desprez
TLDR
Following the appearance of stripe rust in South Africa in 1996, efforts have been made to identify new sources of durable resistance to stripe rust by selecting for Cappelle-Desprez derived APR effective against South African pathotypes of the stripe rust fungus. Expand
