Several Lathyrus species, particularly Lathyrus sativus and L. cicera, have a high potential both as food and fodder crops. Rust and powdery mildew fungi are among the most important pathogens of major grain legumes including Lathyrus species. We review and critically discuss available knowledge of the existence of resistance and the underlying resistance mechanisms against rust and powdery mildew in the L. sativus and L. cicera crop species.

    Summary. The oomycete Plasmopara viticola is native to North America and was accidentally introduced into Europe at the end of the 19th century, where it caused widespread damage to the grape industry. Since that time, the damage caused by this plant pathogen has generally been controlled with...

    Durum wheat, Triticum turgidum ssp. durum Desf., is an important crop particularly in the Mediterranean basin. Powdery mildew, caused by the pathogen Blumeria graminis f. sp. tritici ( Bgt), is a major disease of wheat that results in significant yield losses worldwide. A recombinant inbred line...

    The Rpv3 locus is a major determinant of downy mildew resistance in grapevine ( Vitis spp.). A selective sweep at this locus was revealed by the DNA genotyping of 580 grapevines, which include a highly diverse set of 265 European varieties that predated the spread of North American mildews, 82...

    The Resistance to Powdery Mildew 8 (RPW8) locus confers broad-spectrum resistance to powdery mildew in Arabidopsis thaliana. There are four Homologous to RPW8s (BrHRs) in Brassica rapa and three in Brassica oleracea (BoHRs). Brassica napus (Bn) is derived from diploidization of a hybrid between...
