A tale of two grass species: Temperature affects the symbiosis of a mutualistic Epichloë endophyte in both tall fescue and perennial ryegrass
(Frontiers Media SA, 2020-05-08)
Many cool-season grasses form permanent, mutualistic symbioses with asexual Epichloë endophytes. These fungal symbionts often perform a protective role within the association as many strains produce secondary metabolites ...
Biases in the metabarcoding of plant pathogens using rust fungi as a model system
Plant pathogens such as rust fungi (Pucciniales) are of global economic and ecological importance. This means there is a critical need to reliably and cost‐effectively detect, identify, and monitor these fungi at large ...
Endophytic ability of the insecticidal bacterium Brevibacillus laterosporus in brassica
(Public Library of Science, 2019-05-22)
Brevibacillus laterosporus (Bl), is an insecticidal bacterium recorded as toxic to a range of invertebrates after ingestion. Isolates of Bl, which were initially recovered from surface-sterilised cabbage (Brassica oleracea ...
Transcriptional reprogramming of Arabidopsis thaliana defence pathways by the entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana correlates with resistance against a fungal pathogen but not against insects
(Frontiers Media, 2019-03-29)
The entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana can adopt an endophytic lifestyle by colonising a wide array of plant species. Beauveria-colonised plants can show enhanced resistance against insects and plant pathogens ...
Identification of novel genes associated with conidiation in Beauveria bassiana with suppression subtractive hybridization
(Mycological Society of America, 2008)
The conidiation of the entomopathogenic fungus Beauveria bassiana (Hyphomycete) is a complex process that involves the stage- and cell-type-specific expression of hundreds of genes. The suppression subtractive hybridization ...
