The phytopathogenic Actinomycete Rhodococcus fascians induces leafy galls on a wide range of hosts, causing major economical losses in the ornamentals industry. Although differences in the responsivity occur within species, no plant tested so far could be considered resistant to R. fascians strain D188 infection. Here, we observed that members of the genus Dalbergia, which belong to the Fabaceae, did not develop leafy galls when challenged with R. fascians and we set out to unravel the… CONTINUE READING
