Race-specific resistance against powdery mildews is well documented in small grains but, in other crops such as grapevine, controlled analysis of host-pathogen interactions on resistant plants is uncommon. In the current study, we attempted to confirm powdery mildew resistance phenotypes through vineyard, greenhouse, and in vitro inoculations for test cross-mapping populations for two resistance sources: (i) a complex hybrid breeding line, 'Bloodworth 81-107-11', of at least Vitis rotundifolia…

Vitis rupestris B38 Confers Isolate-Specific Quantitative Resistance to Penetration by Erysiphe necator.

Vitis rupestris B38 showed an enhanced penetration resistance to a powdery mildew isolate with the ability to overcome the Run1 gene, making it an interesting resistance source to prolong the durability of this gene.

Discovery of the REN11 Locus From Vitis aestivalis for Stable Resistance to Grapevine Powdery Mildew in a Family Segregating for Several Unstable and Tissue-Specific Quantitative Resistance Loci

A new qualitative resistance locus, named REN11, on the chromosome (Chr) 15 was found to be effective in nearly all vineyard environments on leaves, rachis, berries, and most of the time on stems, which could indicate race-specific resistance or their roles in different timepoints in epidemic progress.

Title Identification of two novel powdery mildew resistance loci , Ren 6 and Ren 7 , from the wild Chinese grape species

Background: Grapevine powdery mildew Erysiphe necator is a major fungal disease in all grape growing countries worldwide. Breeding for resistance to this disease is crucial to avoid extensive

Construction of a high-density genetic map and detection of a major QTL of resistance to powdery mildew (Erysiphe necator Sch.) in Caucasian grapes (Vitis vinifera L.)

The genetic analysis conducted revealed that the Caucasian grapes in this study exhibit a resistant haplotype different from that of Central Asian grape accessions, suggesting a widespread presence of this resistance in the surveyed germplasm.

Identification of two novel powdery mildew resistance loci, Ren6 and Ren7, from the wild Chinese grape species Vitis piasezkii

A comparison of the kinetics of induction of powdery mildew resistance mediated by Ren6, Ren7 and the Run1 locus from Muscadinia rotundifolia indicated that the speed and strength of resistance conferred by Ren 6 is greater than that of Run1 which, in turn, is superior to that conferred byRen7.

Grapevine Gene Systems for Resistance to Gray Mold Botrytis cinerea and Powdery Mildew Erysiphe necator

This review elucidates the main mechanisms of plant—pathogen interactions, the immune systems developed by plants, as well as the identified genes for resistance and susceptibility to the biotrophic pathogen Erysiphe necator and the necrotrophic Pathogen Botrytis cinerea.

Identification of mildew resistance in wild and cultivated Central Asian grape germplasm

Evidence that powdery mildew resistance is present in V. vinifera subsp.

Genetic mapping and survey of powdery mildew resistance in the wild Central Asian ancestor of cultivated grapevines in Central Asia

Results of PM resistance in multiple accessions of V. vinifera subsp.

Susceptibility of Cultivated and Wild Vitis spp. to Wood Infection by Fungal Trunk Pathogens.

No one cultivar is likely to provide resistance to the range of trunk pathogens but that certain cultivars may be promising candidates for commercially relevant host resistance in grape-production systems where the dominant cultivars are very susceptible.

The cytological basis of powdery mildew resistance in wild Chinese Vitis species.

Variation Within and Among Vitis spp. for Foliar Resistance to the Powdery Mildew Pathogen Erysiphe necator.

The results underscore the importance of uniform testing in multiple environments and the need for strategies for the development of cultivars with durable resistance to powdery mildew.

A single dominant locus, ren4, confers rapid non-race-specific resistance to grapevine powdery mildew.

A powdery mildew resistance mechanism not previously described in the Vitaceae or elsewhere is document, in which a dominantly inherited resistance prevents hyphal emergence and is non-race-specific and tissue-independent.

Development of apple powdery mildew on sources of resistance to Podosphaera leucotricha, exposed to an inoculum virulent against the major resistance gene Pl‐2

Tests of pathogenicity in controlled conditions and observations in an orchard showed that the initial progenitor of Pl-2, MAL 68/1, was overcome by a virulent inoculum, as a consequence, all selections derived from MAL68/1 may lose their resistance to powdery mildew, if Pl-1 is used alone.

Development of SCAR markers linked to powdery mildew (Uncinula necator) resistance in grapevine (Vitis vinifera L. and Vitis sp.)

Sequence-characterized amplified regions markers (SCARs) were developed from six randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers linked to the major QTL region for powdery mildew (Uncinula necator)

Variation in pathogenicity and aggressiveness of Erysiphe necator from different Vitis spp. and geographic origins in the eastern United States.

It is found no differences in components of aggressiveness latent period and lesion size among isolates from different source hosts when inoculated on V. vinifera, which is highly susceptible to powdery mildew, however significant variation was evident among isolate on the more resistant V. labruscana 'Niagara'.

Genetic dissection of resistance to anthracnose and powdery mildew in Medicago truncatula.

Genetic analyses showed that resistance to anthracnose is governed mainly by a single major locus to both races, named Ct1 and located on the upper part of chromosome 4, and resistance to powdery mildew involves three distinct loci, Epp1 on chromosome 4 andEpa1 and Epa2 on chromosome 5.

Resistance to Erysiphe necator in the grapevine ‘Kishmish vatkana’ is controlled by a single locus through restriction of hyphal growth

‘Kishmish vatkana’ allowed pathogen entry into epidermal cells at a rate comparable to that in the susceptible control Vitis vinifera ‘Nimrang’, but was able to limit subsequent hyphal proliferation.

The powdery mildew resistance gene REN1 co-segregates with an NBS-LRR gene cluster in two Central Asian grapevines

The REN1 gene resides in an NBS-LRR gene cluster tightly delimited by two flanking SSR markers, which can assist in the selection of this DNA block in breeding between Vitis vinifera cultivars.

Identification by genetic analysis of two races of Erysiphe polygoni DC. causing powdery mildew disease in mungbean

The Akola isolate is identified as a second race of E. polygoni, which could be explained as the result of mutation of the dominant avirulence Avr 1 Aw 1 genes to virulenceAvr 1 avr 1 genes corresponding to host resistance Pm 1 Pm1 genes.


To develop molecular markers linked to resistance to grape powdery mildew (Erysiphe necator), Vitis romanetii was used to create a pseudo-backcross 2 mapping population and two markers, VMC7f2 and SNPlexE1M4R1 were shown to be tightly linked to powdery Mildew resistance and seedlessness.
