The plant defense activator, acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM) was tested for its ability to protect tomato seedlings against verticillium wilt caused by Verticillium dahliae. ASM exhibited in vitro an antifungal activity in dose-dependent manner against three strains of the pathogen with the less virulent strain SH being the most inhibited. This inhibition of mycelial growth reached 75 % when ASM was applied at concentrations higher than 50 μg ml−1. ASM also induced an elevated protection against the… 

Protective effect of three brown seaweed extracts against fungal and bacterial diseases of tomato

It is suggested that induced resistance is probably the main mechanism of protection afforded by ASE, as ASE-treated plants had significantly higher levels of activity of defense enzymes polyphenol oxidase and peroxidase compared to the control.

Synthesis and in planta antibacterial activity of head-to-head bis-benzimidazole and bis-benzoxazole derivatives

The results suggest that the bis-benzoimidazole and bis- Benzoxazole derivatives act as antioxidants and may be used to protect plants against bacterial diseases.

Induced Resistance in Tomato Plants against Verticillium Wilt by the Binuclear Nickel Coordination Complex of the Ligand 2,5-Bis(pyridin-2-yl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole.

It is demonstrated that L and Ni2L2 can be considered as new activators of plant defense responses in controlling Verticillium wilt.

Effect of altering the steric hindrance of the nitrogen atom in 2,5-bis(pyridin-n-yl)-1,3,4 thiadiazole isomers on their ability to elicit tomato defense responses against Verticillium wilt and crown gall diseases

It is demonstrated that the presence of the N atom within the two pyridinyl groups in the position 3 or 4 highly enhanced the activity of plant defense and antioxidant responses as well as their ability to reduce the severity of symptoms caused by V. dahliae on tomato.

Functional Analogues of Salicylic Acid and Their Use in Crop Protection

High-throughput screening methods of chemical libraries allowed the identification of new compounds that do not affect plant growth, and whose mechanisms of action are based on priming of plant defenses, rather than on their direct activation.

The mononuclear nickel(II) complex bis(azido-κN)bis[2,5-bis(pyridin-2-yl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole-κ2 N2 ,N3 ]nickel(II) protects tomato from Verticillium dahliae by inhibiting fungal growth and activating plant defences.

It is demonstrated that the coordination of the ligand with Ni associated with the azide as a coligand resulted in an improvement in its biological activity by both inhibiting the growth of V. dahliae and activating plant defence responses.



Induction of Systemic Acquired Resistance in Pepper Plants by Acibenzolar-S-methyl against Bacterial Spot Disease

The ability of acibenzolar-S-methyl to induce resistance in pepper plants against Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria was investigated in both growth chamber and open field conditions. Growth

Acibenzolar-s-methyl-induced resistance to Japanese pear scab is associated with potentiation of multiple defense responses.

The mode of action of acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM) against Japanese pear scab is reported, suggesting that resistance triggered by ASM may be SA-independent and active oxygen species may be involved as a signal for the activation of PR proteins or genes.

Biological and molecular analyses of the acibenzolar-S-methyl-induced systemic acquired resistance in flue-cured tobacco against Tomato spotted wilt virus.

Findings together with previous field experiments demonstrate that ASM is a potential option for management of TSWV in flue-cured tobacco and minimized the phytotoxicity.

Induced Resistance of Acibenzolar-S-methyl (CGA 245704) to Cucumber and Japanese Pear Diseases

It was suggested that acibenzolar-S-methyl induced resistance to some but not all diseases on cucumber and Japanese pear and induction of disease resistance in cucumber was rapidly triggered after treatment with this compound.

Benzothiadiazole-mediated induced resistance to fusarium oxysporum f. sp. radicis-lycopersici in tomato

Benzo-(1,2,3)-thiadiazole-7-carbothioic acid S-methyl ester (BTH), a synthetic chemical, was applied as a foliar spray to tomato plants and evaluated for its potential to confer increased resistance against the soil-borne pathogen FORL.

Evaluation of acibenzolar-S-methyl-induced resistance against iris yellow spot tospovirus

Acibenzolar-S-Methyl is a functional analog of salicylic acid that activates local and systemic acquired resistance (SAR) responses in plants against a wide variety of pathogens and could be useful in potentially developing novel SAR-based options for virus management.

Suppression of Phytophthora Root and Crown Rot on Pepper Plants Treated with Acibenzolar-S-Methyl.

ABM could be an important management tool for Phytophthora root and crown rot on pepper plants and survival among chile pepper plants treated twice with 25, 50, or 75 μg/ml of ABM and grown in soil infested with P. capsici was not different.

A benzothiadiazole primes parsley cells for augmented elicitation of defense responses

The ability of various chemicals to enhance plant disease resistance correlated with their capability to potentiate parsley PAL gene elicitation, emphasizing an important role for defense response potentiation in acquired plant disease resistant.

Gene Expression During Acibenzolar-S-Methyl-Induced Priming for Potentiated Responses to Venturia nashicola in Japanese Pear

Three defence-related genes that are involved in the signalling network from Japanese pear, including a non-expresser of pathogenesis-related protein 1 (jpNPR1), a respiratory burst oxidase homologues (jpRBOH) and a mitogen-activated protein kinase (jpMAPK), are cloned and expression in the same conditions that allow protection afforded by ASM is studied.
