Barley yellow dwarf viruses (BYDVs) belong to the family Luteoviridae and cause disease in cereals. Because of the large and complex genome of cereal plants, it is difficult to study host-virus interactions. In order to establish a model host system for the studies on BYDVs, we examined the susceptibility of a monocot model plant, Brachypodium distachyon, to BYDV-GAV infection. Fourteen days after BYDV-GAV inoculation by aphid transmission, B. distachyon plants (inbred line Bd21-3) showed… Expand
Sugarcane mosaic virus infection of model plants Brachypodium distachyon and Nicotiana benthamiana
It is demonstrated that SCMV strain FZ1 can systemically infect Brachypodium distachyon inbred line Bd21 and Nicotiana benthamiana through inoculation, double antibody sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent, transmission electron microscopy, and reverse transcription PCR assays. Expand
Barley yellow dwarf virus-GAV-derived vsiRNAs are involved in the production of wheat leaf yellowing symptoms by targeting chlorophyll synthase
This report is the first to demonstrate that BYDV-GAV-derived vsiRNAs can target wheat transcripts for symptom development, and the results help to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying leaf yellowing after viral infection. Expand
Brachypodium Phenylalanine Ammonia Lyase (PAL) Promotes Antiviral Defenses against Panicum mosaic virus and Its Satellites
A significant role for PAL1 is found in the production of salicylic acid (SA) in response to PMV/SPMV infections and that SA is an essential component of the defense response preventing the plant from succumbing to viral infection. Expand
Brachypodium: A Monocot Grass Model Genus for Plant Biology[OPEN]
The intent of this review is to introduce this model system genus Brachypodium and describe some key outcomes of nearly a decade of research since the first draft genome sequence of the flagship species, B. distachyon, was completed. Expand
Brachypodium and plant viruses: Entwined tools for discovery.
The current knowledge of Brachypodium-virus interactions is broadly frame and how these findings may inform virus studies of grasses in the laboratory, field and natural settings are broadly framed. Expand
Transcriptome-based identification and validation of optimal reference genes for quantitative real-time PCR normalisation in Psathyrostachys huashanica
A series of appropriate RGs suited for RT-qPCR-mediated identification of target genes from P. huashanica are established and will offer a valuable resource for gene expression analysis and functional gene research in P. Expand


Psathyrostachys huashanica, a potential resource for resistance to Barley yellow dwarf virus-GAV
It is demonstrated that Psathyrostachys huashanica is highly resistant to BYDV-GAV and possibly has a negative effect on the movement of the viral particles from inoculated leaves to new leaves. Expand
Brachypodium distachyon. A new model system for functional genomics in grasses.
A new model for grass functional genomics is described based on Brachypodium distachyon, which in the evolution of the Pooideae diverged just prior to the clade of "core pooid" genera that containExpand
Investigations of barley stripe mosaic virus as a gene silencing vector in barley roots and in Brachypodium distachyon and oat
This work demonstrates the successful BSMV-mediated virus induced gene silencing (VIGS) of three different genes in barley roots, i.e. the barley homologues of the IPS1, PHR1, and PHO2 genes known to participate in Pi uptake and reallocation in Arabidopsis. Expand
Root and Shoot Responses to Bird Cherry‐Oat Aphids and Barley yellow dwarf virus in Spring Wheat
It is concluded that R. padi infestation caused acute injury to spring wheat plants while BYDV caused chronic injury. Expand
Fine Mapping of the Bsr1 Barley Stripe Mosaic Virus Resistance Gene in the Model Grass Brachypodium distachyon
The results indicate that resistance segregates as expected for a single dominant gene, which is designated Barley stripe mosaic virus resistance 1 (Bsr1), and the power of using RILs to rapidly map the genetic determinants of BSMV resistance in Brachypodium is demonstrated. Expand
High-efficiency Agrobacterium-mediated transformation of Brachypodium distachyon inbred line Bd21-3
The identification of a transformable inbred diploid line, Bd21-3, and the development of a transformation method with transformation efficiencies as high as 41% of co-cultivated calluses producing transgenic plants are described. Expand
A High Throughput Barley Stripe Mosaic Virus Vector for Virus Induced Gene Silencing in Monocots and Dicots
An Agrobacterium delivery system for BSMV and a ligation independent cloning (LIC) strategy to mediate efficient cloning of host genes are developed and results imply that the PMR5 gene has maintained similar functions across monocot and dicot families. Expand
Effects of barley yellow dwarf virus on root growth in spring oat
The effects of a nonspecifically transmitted strain of barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV-PAV-IL) on root growth of four spring oat (Avena sativa) genotypes differing in BYDV tolerance were compared.Expand
Importance of Cell Wall Degrading Enzymes Produced by Fusarium graminearum during Infection of Wheat Heads
The reduced gold labelling densities in the infected host cell walls indicate that these polysaccharide degrading enzymes might be important pathogenicity factors of F. graminearum during infection of wheat spikes. Expand
