CSP00114 - Analysis of plant defence responses to the broad host range fungal pathogen, Rhizoctonia solani, using wheat and Arabidopsis

Plain text source: 
The project has made excellent progress in identifying key genes linked to oxidative stress that, when mutated, make the model plant Arabidopsis highly susceptible to AG8... The project has also identified other genes whose expression is highly induced following R. solani infection in Arabidopsis and wheat... The exciting results were further supported by large scale analysis of gene expression that revealed the resistance to AG8 was associated with the activity of a number of genes linked to the generation of ROS and similar induction of ROS related genes was seen in wheat after AG8 infection using microarrays...
