A new avirulence gene of Leptosphaeria maculans, AvrLm14, identifies a resistance source in American broccoli (Brassica oleracea) genotypes.

Mol Plant Pathol 2021 Aug 31. Epub 2021 Aug 31.

Université Paris-Saclay, INRAE, UMR BIOGER, Thiverval-Grignon, France.

In many cultivated crops, sources of resistance to diseases are sparse and rely on introgression from wild relatives. Agricultural crops often are allopolyploids resulting from interspecific crosses between related species, which are sources of diversity for resistance genes. This is the case for Brassica napus (oilseed rape, canola), an interspecific hybrid between Brassica rapa (turnip) and Brassica oleracea (cabbage). Read More

Nanosensor Detection of Synthetic Auxins using Corona Phase Molecular Recognition.

ACS Sens 2021 08 10;6(8):3032-3046. Epub 2021 Aug 10.

Disruptive & Sustainable Technologies for Agricultural Precision IRG, Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research and Technology, 1 CREATE Way, #03-06/07/08 Research Wing, Singapore 138602, Singapore.

Synthetic auxins such as 1-naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) and 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) have been extensively used in plant tissue cultures and as herbicides because they are chemically more stable and potent than most endogenous auxins. A tool for rapid detection of these compounds will enhance our knowledge about hormone distribution and signaling and facilitate more efficient usage of synthetic auxins in agriculture. In this work, we show the development of real-time and nondestructive NAA and 2,4-D nanosensors based on the concept of corona phase molecular recognition (CoPhMoRe), to replace the current state-of-the-art sensing methods that are destructive and laborious.

Challenging the Preference-Performance Hypothesis in an above-belowground insect.

Oecologia 2021 Sep 7;197(1):179-187. Epub 2021 Aug 7.

IGEPP-UMR 1349, INRAE, Institut Agro, Univ Rennes 1, 35000, Rennes, France.

The relationship between female oviposition preference and offspring performance has been a question of special interest in the study of host plant selection by phytophagous insects. The Preference-Performance Hypothesis (PPH) is one of the main hypotheses proposed to explain this relationship, stating that females should preferentially lay eggs on plants providing the best larval development. The PPH has been extensively tested on aboveground insects but its application to species with belowground larvae is still mostly unknown. Read More

Distinct immune sensor systems for fungal endopolygalacturonases in closely related Brassicaceae.

Nat Plants 2021 Sep 29;7(9):1254-1263. Epub 2021 Jul 29.

Department of Plant Biochemistry, Centre of Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP), Eberhard-Karls-University of Tübingen, Tübingen, Germany.

Plant pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) facilitate recognition of microbial patterns and mediate activation of plant immunity. Arabidopsis thaliana RLP42 senses fungal endopolygalacturonases (PGs) and triggers plant defence through complex formation with SOBIR1 and SERK co-receptors. Here, we show that a conserved 9-amino-acid fragment pg9(At) within PGs is sufficient to activate RLP42-dependent plant immunity. Read More
