sclerospora graminicola axenic culture.sclerospora graminicola (sacc.) schroet., the obligate pathlogen causing downy mildew (green-ear) of pearl millet (pennisetum typhoides stapf. and hubb.) has been successfully cultured for the first time on a known semisynthetic mediumn with no evident loss of fructifications. sclerospora graminicola was first grown on host callus tissue and subsequently on a modification of white's basal medium that contained casein hydrolyzate (oxoid). 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, and kinetin.19695762609
detection of genetic variability in pearl millet downy mildew (sclerospora graminicola) by aflp.downy mildew, caused by sclerospora graminicola, is an economically important disease of pearl millet in the semiarid regions of asia and africa. amplified restriction fragment length polymorphism (aflp) was used to detect the extent of genomic variation among 19 fungal isolates from different cultivars of pearl millet grown in various regions of india. fourteen aflp primer combinations produced 184 polymorphic bands. an unweighted pair-group method of averages cluster analysis represented by de ...200314994825
rust and downy mildew resistance in pearl millet (pennisetum glaucum) mediated by heterologous expression of the afp gene from aspergillus giganteus.the cdna encoding the antifungal protein afp from the mould aspergillus giganteus was introduced into two pearl millet (pennisetum glaucum) genotypes by particle bombardment. stable integration and expression of the afp gene was confirmed in two independent transgenic t0 plants and their progeny using southern blot and rt-pcr analysis. in vitro infection of detached leaves and in vivo inoculation of whole plants with the basidomycete puccinia substriata, the causal agent of rust disease, and the ...200616779647
purification and characterization of proline/hydroxyproline-rich glycoprotein from pearl millet coleoptiles infected with downy mildew pathogen sclerospora graminicola.hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (hrgps) are important plant cell wall structural components, which are also involved in response to pathogen attack. in pearl millet, deposition and cross-linking of hrgps in plant cell walls was shown to contribute to the formation of resistance barriers against the phytopathogenic oomycete sclerospora graminicola. in the present study, the purification and characterization of hrgps that accumulated in coleoptiles of pearl millet seedlings in response to s. gra ...200717166528
role of hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins in resistance of pearl millet against downy mildew pathogen sclerospora graminicola.hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (hrgps) are important plant cell wall components involved in plant defense response to pathogen attack. in the present study, a resistant pearl millet (pennisetum glaucum) cultivar, ip18292, was compared with a susceptible cultivar, 7042s, to investigate the contribution of hrgps in the successful defense against the phytopathogenic oomycete s. graminicola. northern hybridization using mehrgp cdna, a heterologous probe from cassava, indicated steady accumulation ...200717554553

importance of seed-borne fungi of sorghum and pearl millet in burkina faso and their control using plant extracts.seed-borne fungi of sorghum and pearl millet in burkina faso were surveyed. a total of 188 seed samples from various locations, collected in 1989 (42) and 2002 (146), were tested, using the blotter, dry inspection and washing methods. infection experiments were carried out with the major fungi recorded on each crop by the blotter test. six essential oils of plants were investigated for their inhibitory activity against eight pathogenic fungi. thirty four and 27 fungal species were found in seed ...200818817152
simple sequence repeat markers useful for sorghum downy mildew (peronosclerospora sorghi) and related species.a recent outbreak of sorghum downy mildew in texas has led to the discovery of both metalaxyl resistance and a new pathotype in the causal organism, peronosclerospora sorghi. these observations and the difficulty in resolving among phylogenetically related downy mildew pathogens dramatically point out the need for simply scored markers in order to differentiate among isolates and species, and to study the population structure within these obligate oomycetes. here we present the initial results f ...200819040756
anti-oomycete compounds from ganoderma appalantum, a wood rot basidiomycete.solvent extracts of 17 different basidiomycetes were tested for their ability to inhibit sclerospora graminicola. among those tested, only three basidiomycete crude extracts exhibited significant inhibition on pathogen sporulation, zoospore release and zoospore motility. in vitro, the chloroform extract of ganoderma appalantum (3 mg ml(-1)) recorded a maximum sporangial inhibition of 52.5 and 82.0% zoospore release and 92.5% motility. crude extracts of three different basidiomycete fungi were tr ...200919418357
accumulation of pearl millet downy mildew resistance in mali--2006 results.few crop breeding programs today are breeding crops in their areas of diversity and origin. this study reports on a malian breeding program in an area of genetic diversity. it has the objective to accumulate resistance to major populations of sclerospora graminicola (= sg) with modern breeding and selection methods. this study is part of the development of pearl millet top cross hybrids, with a reduced plant height, sg-resistance (= resistance to pearl millet downy mildew) and 'stay green' at ph ...200718399456
how do obligate parasites evolve? a multi-gene phylogenetic analysis of downy mildews.plant parasitism has independently evolved as a nutrition strategy in both true fungi and oomycetes (stramenopiles). a large number of species within phytopathogenic oomycetes, the so-called downy mildews, are defined as obligate biotrophs since they have not, to date, been cultured on any artificial medium. other genera like phytophthora and pythium can in general be cultured on standard or non-standard agar media. within all three groups there are many important plant pathogens responsible for ...200716990040
development of transgenic pearl millet (pennisetum glaucum (l.) r. br.) plants resistant to downy mildew.transgenic pearl millet lines expressing pin gene--exhibiting high resistance to downy mildew pathogen, sclerospora graminicola--were produced using particle-inflow-gun (pig) method. shoot-tip-derived embryogenic calli were co-bombarded with plasmids containing pin and bar genes driven by camv 35s promoter. bombarded calli were cultured on ms medium with phosphinothricin as a selection agent. primary transformants 1t(0), 2t(0), and 3t(0) showed the presence of both bar and pin coding sequences a ...200616607531
