Cover for Molecular detection strategies for phytopathogenic bacteria.

Detection of bacterial plant pathogens on seed and other plant parts used to propagate agricultural and ornamental crops is an important component of disease prevention strategies. Disease prevention or avoidance strategies are particularly important in controlling bacterial diseases since there...

Cover for Molecular assessment of soil microbial communities with potential for plant disease suppression.

It is known that soil microbial communities, in part, determine the level of disease suppressiveness of soil. However, because of the very high complexity of soil microbial communities, it has been extremely difficult to understand which organisms, or combinations of organisms, cause disease...

Cover for Signal transduction pathways and disease resistant genes and their applications to fungal disease control.

Plants must continuously defend themselves against attack from fungi, bacteria, viruses, invertebrates and even other plants. The regulation mechanisms of any plant-pathogen interaction are complex and dynamic. The application of biochemical and molecular genetic techniques has resulted in major...

Cover for Modulating quorum sensing and type III secretion systems in bacterial plant pathogens for disease management.

In this chapter, we briefly describe three major classes of quorum sensing (QS) systems as well as the structural components, substrates, chaperones, signals and regulation of the type III secretion system (T3SS). In addition, we discuss current knowledge about the regulatory network between QS and ...

Cover for Interactions between plant and virus proteomes in susceptible hosts: identification of new targets for antiviral strategies.

Plant viruses are obligate parasites that depend on their hosts for each step of their replication cycle. Host factors that facilitate the replication of the viral genome and its subsequent spread throughout the plant have been characterized and include, but are not limited to: translation factors, ...

Cover for Mechanisms of plant virus evolution and identification of genetic bottlenecks: impact on disease management.

The majority of characterized plant viruses have RNA genomes. Genetic variability is a fundamental feature of RNA viruses. High mutation rates, recombination and reassortment are the three basic mechanisms that are responsible for the enormous genetic polymorphism and rapid evolution of RNA...

Cover for Molecular understanding of viroid replication cycles and identification of targets for disease management.

The replicative strategies of viroids differ in several fundamental aspects from those of RNA plant viruses. Rather than replicating in the cytoplasm, like most viruses, viroids must first be transported into either the nucleus (pospiviroids) or the chloroplast (avsunviroids) before the beginning...

Cover for Molecular diagnostic methods for plant viruses.

Plants are frequently infected by a wide range of viruses that cause important agronomic, economic and social impact. Detection of viruses at early stages of infection is crucial to reduce economic losses. Biological indexing and serological enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) methods are...

Cover for Molecular identification and diversity of phytoplasmas.

Phytoplasmas are a large, diverse group of organisms and causal agents of plant diseases of great economic relevance. Since they cannot be grown in axenic culture, several aspects of phytoplasma biology are still poorly understood. An absolute prerequisite for the control of phytoplasma diseases is ...
