- Role of L -Phenylalanine ammonia Lyase in the induced resistance and susceptibility of sotato plants. Gerasimova, N. G.; Pridvorova, S. M.; Ozeretskovskaya, O. L. // Applied Biochemistry & Microbiology;Jan2005, Vol. 41 Issue 1, p103
Biogenic elicitors (chitosan and its complex with salicylic acid) and an immunosuppressor (laminarin) were shown to increase the activity of L -phenylalanine ammonia lyase (EC 188.8.131.52) and protein synthesis in potato tubers. Laminarin did not decrease L -phenylalanine ammonia lyase activity. It...
- Dissection and analysis of quantitative disease resistance in tetraploid potato. Bradshaw, John E.; Bryan, Glenn J.; Hackett, Christine A.; McLean, Karen; Pande, Barnaly; Stewart, Helen E.; Waugh, Robbie // Euphytica;Mar2004, Vol. 137 Issue 1, p13
The theory of linkage and QTL analysis in autotetraploids is summarised. Applications are presented to the analysis of quantitative disease resistance in the European cultivated potato, Solanum tuberosum subsp. tuberosum. The implications are discussed for practical potato breeding, practical...
- ENHANCE RESISTANCE TO ALTERNARIA ALTERNATA CAUSING POTATO BROWN LEAF SPOT DISEASE BY USING SOME PLANT DEFENSE INDUCERS. Soleimani, Mohammad Javad; Kirk, William // Journal of Plant Protection Research;2012, Vol. 52 Issue 1, p83
Host resistance is an efficient and effective component in integrated management of plant diseases. The aim of this study was to test whether Acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM), Chitosan, Heads-up and Acetyl Salicylic Acid (ASA), known to induce resistance against various diseases, can help protect...
- The Effect of Long Term Storage on Bacterial Soft Rot Resistance in Potato. Chung, Yong; Goeser, Nicholas; Cai, Xingkui; Jansky, Shelley // American Journal of Potato Research;Aug2013, Vol. 90 Issue 4, p351
Bacterial soft rot is a serious disease in potato ( Solanum tuberosum L.), causing rapid tuber tissue maceration and, consequently, marketable yield loss. Soft rot bacteria, including Pectobacterium carotovorum subsp. carotovorum ( Pbc), are favored by moist conditions, which are prevalent in...
- Evaluating Incidence of Helminthosporium solani and Colletotrichum coccodes on Asymptomatic Organic Potatoes and Screening Potato Lines for Resistance to Silver Scurf. Mattupalli, Chakradhar; Genger, Ruth; Charkowski, Amy // American Journal of Potato Research;Aug2013, Vol. 90 Issue 4, p369
Silver scurf, caused by Helminthosporium solani, and black dot, caused by Colletotrichum coccodes, cause tuber blemishes on potato ( Solanum tuberosum L.) which affect processing and fresh market trade. Tubers from ten cultivars were collected at harvest from three organic farms in Wisconsin and...
