Chitinases (EC 3.2.2.14), expressed during the plant-pathogen interaction, are associated with plant defense against pathogens. In the present study, a positive correlation between chitinase activity and sugarcane smut resistance was found. ScChi (GenBank accession no. KF664180), a Class III chitinase gene, encoded a 31.37 kDa polypeptide, was cloned and identified. Subcellular localization revealed ScChi targeting to the nucleus, cytoplasm and the plasma membrane. Real-time quantitative PCR… Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that sugarcane chitinase family exhibit differential responses to biotic and abiotic stress, providing new insights into their function. Expand
Sugarcane calcineurin B-like (CBL) genes play important but versatile roles in regulation of responses to biotic and abiotic stresses
TLDR
expression in Escherichia coli BL21 cells showed that ScCBLs can enhance tolerance to NaCl or copper stress, and Overexpression of ScC BLs in Nicotiana benthamiana leaves promoted their resistance to infection with the tobacco pathogen Ralstonia solanacearum. Expand

TLDR
CaChiIV1-silenced pepper plants displayed increased susceptibility to P. capsici infection due to changes in expression of defense-related genes, thus showing its coregulation affect in particular conditions. Expand

Chitinase family genes in grape differentially expressed in a manner specific to fruit species in response to Botrytis cinerea.
TLDR
Among different isoforms of VvChis, the interaction of Chi17 with Metallothionein (MTL) as oxidative stress protection is confirmed, which suggests Vv chitinases can modulate oxidative stress during postharvest storage in ripened fruits. Expand

TLDR
Gene ontology (GO) enrichment analysis revealed that CaChi genes primarily contribute in response to biotic, abiotic stresses and metabolic/catabolic process within the biological process category. Expand
ScAOC1, an allene oxide cyclase gene, confers defense response to biotic and abiotic stresses in sugarcane.
TLDR
Prokaryotic expression analysis showed overexpression of ScAOC1 in Escherichia coli BL21 could enhance its tolerance to NaCl, mannitol, and cold stimuli, indicating that ScA OC1 may play an active role in response to biotic and abiotic stresses in sugarcane. Expand
Antifungal activity of chitinase II against Colletotrichum falcatum Went. causing red rot disease in transgenic sugarcane.
TLDR
Two transgenic lines of sugarcane modified with the barley chitinase class-II gene exhibited strong resistance against inoculated C. falcatum in an in vitro bioassay, as they remained healthy and green in comparison with the control Sugarcane plants, which turned yellow and eventually died 3 weeks after infection. Expand
Genome-wide identification and expression analysis of chitinase gene family in Brassica rapa reveals its role in clubroot resistance.
TLDR
The findings indicate that chitinases play a crucial role in pathogen resistance of the host plants and offer an insight into the role of chit inase in B. rapa-P. Expand
