Six plant pathogenic isolates of Pseudomonas
syringae pv. glycinea, the causal agent of bacterial
blight of Glycine max (L.) Merrill, and one isolate of
P. syringae pv. phaseolicola, the causal agent of halo
blight of Phaseolus vulgaris L., have been examined for
the presence of circular duplex deoxyribonucleic acid
A pathogenicity locus of Pseudomonas syringae pv.
syringae identified by Tn5 mutagenesis was investigated.
The mutant strain PS9024 is attenuated for disease
expression in its host, Phaseolus vulgaris, but produces
the hypersensitive reaction (HR) in the nonhost, tobacco
(Nicotina tabacum). A cosmid clone carrying 16 kilobases
(kb) of contiguous genomic...
1S801 is a transposable element isolated from Pseudomonas syringae pathovar
(pv.) phaseolicola, the causal agent of halo blight of bean. Fragments of the element are
present in multiple copies on an indigenous plasmid, pMMC7105, of strain LR781, and
have been implicated as sites of homologous recombination leading to imprecise
Inbreeding of the avirulent physiologic race 8 strains of Ustilago hordei was
purported to have increased its pathogenicity in a stepwise manner that led to a highly
pathogenic race, designated race 14. The analysis of electrophoretic karyotypes and
restriction fragment length polymorphism profiles detected with a telomere-specific probe
Sporulation in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae involves
the process of meiosis which is accompanied by ascospore formation.
Using intact cells or spores, preliminary biochemical evidence is
given to identify ascospore wall components not found in vegetative
cell walls. Cell surface components are solubilized by treatment
with 8 M urea and...
The objective of this study was to provide basic
information on the interaction of the bunt fungi
Tilletia caries and T. controversa with their host,
Triticum aestivum. Studies on the ability of haploid
strains to colonize wheat heads provided the basis for
experiments in which haploid strains were crossed in...
