Anti-Immune Strategies of Pathogenic Fungi
(Frontiers Media Sa, 2016-11-15)
Pathogenic fungi have developed many strategies to evade the host immune system. Multiple escape mechanisms appear to function together to inhibit attack by the various stages of both the adaptive and the innate immune ...
The urochloa foliar blight and collar rot pathogen rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA emerged in South America via a host shift from rice
(The American Phytopathological Society, 2015-10-22)
The fungus Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group (AG)-1 IA emerged in the early 1990s as an important pathogen causing foliar blight and collar rot on pastures of the genus Urochloa (signalgrass) in South America. We tested ...
Graphene biosensors for bacterial and viral pathogens
The infection and spread of pathogens (e.g., COVID-19) pose an enormous threat to the safety of human beings and animals all over the world. The rapid and accurate monitoring and determination of pathogens are of great ...
Macrophomina phaseolina: General Characteristics of Pathogenicity and Methods of Control
(Frontiers Media, 2021-04-22)
Macrophomina phaseolina is a generalist soil-borne fungus present all over the world. It cause diseases such as stem and root rot, charcoal rot and seedling blight. Under high temperatures and low soil moisture, this fungus ...
Strangers in the matrix: plant cell walls and pathogen susceptibility
(Elsevier Science London, 2008-11)
Early in infection, pathogens encounter the outer wall of plant cells. Because pathogen hydrolases targeting the plant cell wall are well-known components of virulence, it has been assumed that wall disassembly by the plant ...
Classification of Avian Pathogenic Escherichia coli by a Novel Pathogenicity Index Based on an Animal Model
(Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, 2016)
Pathogenicity, colony morphology and diversity of isolates of Guignardia citricarpa and G-mangiferae isolated from Citrus spp.
In the present study, the pathogenicity of 36 isolates of Guignardia species isolated from asymptomatic 'Tahiti' acid lime fruit peels and leaves, 'Pera-Rio' sweet orange leaves and fruit peel lesions, and a banana leaf ...
EVALUATION OF DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES FOR THE DIFFERENTIATION OF PATHOGENIC AND NON PATHOGENIC STRAINS OF YERSINIA-ENTEROCOLITICA
(Soc Brasileira Microbiologia, 1995-04-01)
Different methods and tests have been used to evaluate the pathogenic potential of distinct Y. enterocolitica serotypes and biotypes. We tested a total of 60 Y. enterocolitica strains, being 25 of human origin (serotype ...
What Makes a Bacterial Species Pathogenic?:Comparative Genomic Analysis of the Genus Leptospira
Leptospirosis, caused by spirochetes of the genus Leptospira, is a globally widespread, neglected and emerging zoonotic disease. While whole genome analysis of individual pathogenic, intermediately pathogenic and saprophytic ...
