Downy mildew, a foliar disease caused by the oomycete Pseudoperonospora cubensis (Berk. and Curt.) Rostov. is one of the most destructive diseases of cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.). Moderately resistant cultivars are available, but yield losses are high without the use of fungicides. Higher levels of resistance are needed to reduce the need for fungicides. The objective of this study was to identify new sources of resistance to downy mildew among Plant Introduction accessions from the U.S…

Evaluation of Selected Cucumis sativus Accessions for Resistance to Pseudoperonospora cubensis in Egypt

High levels of resistance were observed in several Plant Introduction (PI) cucumber accessions that could be useful for the breeding for resistance to P. cubensis in cucumber.

Development of Downy Mildew-resistant Cucumbers for Late-season Production in the Northeastern United States

In a trial of 27 lines that included Cornell breeding material and the most resistant cultivars and U.S. Department of Agriculture accessions identified in previous studies, the Cornell breeding line DMR-NY264 had the highest level of downy mildew resistance and the highest yields under disease pressure.

Downy Mildew Disease Progress in Resistant and Susceptible Cucumbers Tested in the Field at Different Growth Stages

A set of cucumber cultigens was tested, including highly resistant PI accessions and susceptible control lines, to observe the effect of plant age on resistance, and it was found that older plants had more disease symptoms, even those classified as resistant, such as PI 197088.

Identification of quantitative trait loci for downy mildew resistance in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.)

This QTL allele from Santou and several of the most effective QTL alleles identified in CS-PMR1 should be highest priority for selection to efficiently breed new cultivars that carry adequate levels of downy mildew resistance.

Identification of a New Source of Resistance to Anthracnose in Cucumber in Japan

Anthracnose, caused by the fungal pathogen Colletotrichum orbiculare , is one of the severest diseases in open-field cucumber ( Cucumis sativus L.) cultivation in Japan. Genetically conferred host

Molecular analysis of new sources of resistance to Pseudoperonospora cubensis (Berk. et Curt.) Rostovzev in cucumber

Molecular analysis confirmed results of classical quantitative genetics indicating that resistance to Pseudoperonospora cubensis in PI 197085 is polygenic trait.

Heritability and Genetic Variance Estimates for Resistance to Downy Mildew in Cucumber Accession Ames 2354

The objectives of this study were to develop an effective method for measuring resistance to DM and to determine the type of gene action controlling resistance in Ames 2354.

Resurgence of Pseudoperonospora cubensis: The Causal Agent of Cucurbit Downy Mildew.

The downy mildew pathogen, Pseudoperonospora cubensis, which infects plant species in the family Cucurbitaceae, has undergone major changes during the last decade and offers challenges to scientists in many research areas including pathogen biology, epidemiology and dispersal, population structure and population genetics, host preference, host-pathogen interactions and gene expression, genetic host plant resistance, inheritance of host and fungicide resistance, and chemical disease control.



Downy Mildew Resistance of the Cucumber Germplasm Collection in North Carolina Field Tests

Evaluating all available plant introduction accessions of cucumber for downy mildew resistance under field conditions in North Carolina found nine cultigens to be more resistant than the most resistant elite cultivars and breeding lines tested.

Downy mildew of Cucurbits (Pseudoperonospora Cubensis): the Fungus and its hosts, distribution, epidemiology and control

Apart from the leaf wetness essential for infection, the factors determining disease progress are: rate of foliage growth and physiological age of the host; amount of primary inoculum available, light, and the rate at which lesions necrotize.

Downy mildew of cucurbits.

Downy mildew of cucurbits, caused by the fungus Pseudoperonospora cubensis, is found annually on squash, cucumbers, pumpkins, muskmelons, and other cucurbits grown in all areas of Florida. This same

A set of Cucurbitaceae taxa for differentiation of Pseudoperonospora cubensis pathotypes

The data about host genera and pathogen variation summarized here fully support previous reports about the existence of distinct physiological forms (pathotypes and races) of P. cubensis, and evidence that such forms may be delimited based on host genus, species and intraspecific specificities is presented.

Relation in the inheritance of resistance to Pseudoperonospora cubensisrost and Sphaerotheca fuligineapoll. in cucumber (Cucumis sativusl. L.)

This gene s for resistance of the hypocotyl is linked to or identical with gene p for resistance to Pseudoperonospora cubensis and is present in the cultivars Ashley, Poinsett, Natsufushinari, Pixie, Taipei.

A new pathotype ofPseudoperonospora cubensis causing downy mildew in cucurbits in Israel

Host range pathogenicity studies revealed high compatibility of the new population with cucumber, melon, pumpkin and summer squash but low compatibility with watermelon, and this new population was designated as pathotype 6.

The combined effects of temperature, leaf wetness, and inoculum concentration on infection of cucumbers with Pseudoperonospora cubensis.

Linkage of random amplified polymorphic DNA markers to downy mildew resistance in cucumber (Cucumis sativus L.)

A study was conducted to identify random amplified polymorphic DNA markers linked to the downy mildew resistance gene (dm) which would be suitable for marker assisted selection (MAS), and these genetic markers may be exploited to develop an efficient MAS strategy for breeding resistant cucumber cultivars.
