A novel double-stranded RNA mycovirus from Fusarium graminearum; Nucleic acid sequence and genomic structure.
(Archives of Virology, 2011-01-07)
Ten Fusarium graminearum isolates from China were screened for dsRNA mycoviruses. Five dsRNAs (2.4 to 3.5 kbp) were purified from isolate China 9, cloned, and sequenced. BLAST analysis showed that the proteins encoded by ...
Application of FTACards to Sample Microbial Plant Pathogens for PCR and RT-PCR
(Journal of Phytopathology, 2010-11-02)
For the detection of microbial plant pathogens, like fungi, bacteria, viruses and viroids, methods based on nucleic acids have gained importance as the availability of sequence information increased. This requires ...
Antagonistic interactions between the biocontrol agents Beauveria bassiana and Heterorhabditis indica
(Russian Journal of Nematology, 2014)
The effect of the pathogenic fungus, Beauveria bassiana, on the invasion and proliferation of the entomopathogenic nematode, Heterorhabditis indica, in larvae of the waxmoth, Galleria mellonella, was investigated. ...
Genotyping of sixteen grapevine (Vitis vinifera) varieties in Palestine using microsatellite markers
(Bethlehem University Journal, 2013)
Cultivated grapevines (Vitis vinifera L. ssp. Sativa) are economically the second important fruit-trees after olives in Palestine with more than 20 cultivars covering about 7% of the total cultivated lands and an annual ...
Molecular Identification of Six Steinernema Isolates and Characterization of their Internal Transcribed Spacers Regions
Molecular identification and genotyping of entomopathogenic nematodes (EPNs) are prerequisites for their proper classification, biodiversity studies, and their potential use in biological control programs. In Palestine, ...
Making a friend from a foe: expressing a GroEL gene from the whitefly Bemisia tabaci in the phloem of tomato plants confers resistance to tomato yellow leaf curl virus
(Archives of Virology, 2007-03-05)
Some (perhaps all) plant viruses transmitted in a circulative manner by their insect vectors avoid destruction in the haemolymph by interacting with GroEL homologues, ensuring transmission. We have previously shown that ...
