discovery of a novel linoleate dioxygenase of fusarium oxysporum and linoleate diol synthase of colletotrichum graminicola.fungal pathogens constitute serious threats for many forms of life. the pathogenic fungi fusarium and colletotrichum and their formae speciales (f. spp.) infect many types of crops with severe consequences and fusarium oxysporum can also induce keratitis and allergic conditions in humans. these fungi code for homologues of dioxygenase-cytochrome p450 (dox-cyp) fusion proteins of the animal heme peroxidase (cyclooxygenase) superfamily. the objective was to characterize the enzymatic activities of ...201526438098
arabidopsis incurvata2 regulates salicylic acid and abscisic acid signaling, and oxidative stress responses.epigenetic regulatory states can persist through mitosis and meiosis, but the connection between chromatin structure and dna replication remains unclear. arabidopsis incurvata2 (icu2) encodes the catalytic subunit of dna polymerase α, and null alleles of icu2 have an embryo-lethal phenotype. analysis of icu2-1, a hypomorphic allele of icu2, demonstrated that icu2 functions in chromatin-mediated cellular memory; icu2-1 strongly impairs icu2 function in the maintenance of repressive epigenetic mar ...201526423959
non-random species loss in bacterial communities reduces antifungal volatile production.the contribution of low-abundance microbial species to soil ecosystems is easily overlooked because there is considerable overlap between metabolic abilities (functional redundancy) of dominant and subordinate microbial species. here we studied how loss of less abundant soil bacteria affected the production of antifungal volatiles, an important factor in the natural control of soil-borne pathogenic fungi. we provide novel empirical evidence that the loss of soil bacterial species leads to a decl ...201526405729
the effect of d123 wheat as a companion crop on soil enzyme activities, microbial biomass and microbial communities in the rhizosphere of watermelon.the growth of watermelon is often threatened by fusarium oxysporum f. sp. niveum (fon) in successively monocultured soil, which results in economic loss. the objective of this study was to investigate the effect of d123 wheat as a companion crop on soil enzyme activities, microbial biomass and microbial communities in the rhizosphere of watermelon and to explore the relationship between the effect and the incidence of wilt caused by fon. the results showed that the activities of soil polyphenol ...201526388851
role of antagonistic microorganisms and organic amendment in stimulating the defense system of okra against root rotting fungi.without application of chemical pesticides control of soilborne diseases is a great challenge. stimulation of natural plant's defense is considered as one of the most promising alternative strategy for crop protection. organic amendment of soil besides direct suppressing the pathogen, has been reported to have an influence on phytochemicals in plants. in the present study, pseudomonas aeruginosa, a plant growth promoting rhizobacterium and paecilomyces lilacinus, an egg parasite of root knot and ...201526373176
tomato i2 immune receptor can be engineered to confer partial resistance to the oomycete phytophthora infestans in addition to the fungus fusarium oxysporum.plants and animals rely on immune receptors, known as nucleotide-binding domain and leucine-rich repeat (nlr)-containing proteins, to defend against invading pathogens and activate immune responses. how nlr receptors respond to pathogens is inadequately understood. we previously reported single-residue mutations that expand the response of the potato immune receptor r3a to avr3a(em), a stealthy effector from the late blight oomycete pathogen phytophthora infestans. i2, another nlr that mediates ...201526367241
antifungal activity of a synthetic cationic peptide against the plant pathogens colletotrichum graminicola and three fusarium species.a small cationic peptide (jh8944) was tested for activity against a number of pathogens of agricultural crops. jh8944 inhibited conidium growth in most of the tested plant pathogens with a dose of 50 μg/ml, although one isolate of fusarium oxysporum was inhibited at 5 μg/ml of jh8944. most conidia of fusarium graminearum were killed within 6 hours of treatment with 50 μg/ml of jh8944. germinating f. graminearum conidia required 238 μg/ml of jh8944 for 90% growth inhibition. the peptide did not c ...201526361481

plant-microbe rhizosphere interactions mediated by rehmannia glutinosa root exudates under consecutive monoculture.under consecutive monoculture, the biomass and quality of rehmannia glutinosa declines significantly. consecutive monoculture of r. glutinosa in a four-year field trial led to significant growth inhibition. most phenolic acids in root exudates had cumulative effects over time under sterile conditions, but these effects were not observed in the rhizosphere under monoculture conditions. it suggested soil microbes might be involved in the degradation and conversion of phenolic acids from the monocu ...201526515244
fungal pathogen uses sex pheromone receptor for chemotropic sensing of host plant signals.for more than a century, fungal pathogens and symbionts have been known to orient hyphal growth towards chemical stimuli from the host plant. however, the nature of the plant signals as well as the mechanisms underlying the chemotropic response have remained elusive. here we show that directed growth of the soil-inhabiting plant pathogen fusarium oxysporum towards the roots of the host tomato (solanum lycopersicum) is triggered by the catalytic activity of secreted class iii peroxidases, a famil ...201526503056
molecular phylogeny and diversity of fusarium endophytes isolated from tomato stems.plant tissues are a known habitat for two types of fusarium species: plant pathogens and endophytes. here, we investigated the molecular phylogeny and diversity of endophytic fusaria, because endophytes are not as well studied as pathogens. a total of 543 fusarium isolates were obtained from the inside of tomato stems cultivated in soils mainly obtained from agricultural fields. we then determined partial nucleotide sequences of the translation elongation factor-1 alpha (ef-1α) genes of the isol ...201526298015
efficacy of fungal decolorization of a mixture of dyes belonging to different classes.dyes are the most difficult constituents to remove by conventional biological wastewater treatment. colored wastewater is mainly eliminated by physical and chemical procedures, which are very expensive and have drawbacks. therefore, the advantage of using biological processes, such as the biotransformation of dyes, is that they may lead to complete mineralization or formation of less toxic products. to prove the possibility of using fungal processes for decolorization and other applications, the ...201526273256
