Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
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...

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The project achieved good progress in characterising a novel herbicide-responsive switch (HRE1) including a detailed mutational analysis to determine critical nucleotides important for HRE1 activity... The project identified R. solani strains with a range of pathogenicity, a susceptible mutant and genes whose expression correlates well with resistance to R. solani... A number of transgenic lines containing the construct were generated and used for further analysis, with HRE1 activity being measured by light emitting units per plant in different tissues, during plant development and in response to important plant defence and stress signals...
