    Abstract  Lesion mimic mutants are characterized by the formation of necrotic lesions in the absence of pathogens. Such genetic defects often result in enhanced resistance to pathogen infection and constitutive expression of defense response genes. To understand the genetic mechanisms...

  • Activity of Botanical Extracts on Paddy Rice Pathogen. Obi, Vitus Ikechwukwu // American-Eurasian Journal of Sustainable Agriculture;Apr/Jun2012, Vol. 6 Issue 2, p66 

    The conscious environmental sustenance and ecological compatibility, has thrown up the need and desirability to at all times emphasize on the search for the alternative which employs natural agro-biological balance to address the problems from plant and plant product disease. Extracts from six...

  • Preformed expression of defense is a hallmark of partial resistance to rice blast fungal pathogen Magnaporthe oryzae. Vergne, Emilie; Grand, Xavier; Ballini, Elsa; Chalvon, Véronique; Saindrenan, P.; Tharreau, D.; Nottéghem, J.-L.; Morel, J.-B. // BMC Plant Biology;2010, Vol. 10, p206 

    Background: Partial resistance to plant pathogens is extensively used in breeding programs since it could contribute to resistance durability. Partial resistance often builds up during plant development and confers quantitative and usually broad-spectrum resistance. However, very little is known...

  • Phenolic Phytoalexins in Rice: Biological Functions and Biosynthesis. Man-Ho Cho; Sang-Won Lee // International Journal of Molecular Sciences;2015, Vol. 16 Issue 12, p29120 

    Phytoalexins are inducible secondary metabolites possessing antimicrobial activity against phytopathogens. Rice produces a wide array of phytoalexins in response to pathogen attacks and environmental stresses. With few exceptions, most phytoalexins identified in rice are diterpenoid compounds....

  • Expression of a plant defensin in rice confers resistance to fungal phytopathogens. Jha, Sanjay; Chattoo, Bharat B. // Transgenic Research;Jun2010, Vol. 19 Issue 3, p373 

    Transgenic rice ( Oryza sativa L. cv. Pusa basmati 1), overexpressing the Rs-AFP2 defensin gene from the Raphanus sativus was generated by Agrobacterium tumefaciens-mediated transformation. Expression levels of Rs-AFP2 ranged from 0.45 to 0.53% of total soluble protein in transgenic plants. It...

    Pathogens have evolved different strategies to overcome the various barriers that they encounter during infection of their hosts. The rice blast fungus Magnaporthe grisea causes one of the most damaging diseases of cultivated rice and has emerged as a paradigm system for investigation of foliar...

  • Plant disease: Underground life for rice foe. Valent, Barbara // Nature;9/30/2004, Vol. 431 Issue 7008, p516
