Development of a tomato/root knot nematode bioassay to screen beneficial microbes
(New Zealand Plant Protection Society (Inc.), 2009)
In common with other root knot nematodes Meloidogyne hapla is a serious plant pest. A rapid screening system for candidate microbes that benefit plant growth is a first step to developing screening bioassays in ...
The NADPH oxidases Nox1 and Nox2 differentially regulate volatile organic compounds, fungitastic activity, plant growth promotion and nutrient assimilation in Trichoderma atroviride
(Frontiers Media, 2019-01-23)
In eukaryotic systems, membrane-bound NADPH oxidases (Nox) generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) as a part of normal physiological functions. In the soil-borne mycoparasitic and plant facultative symbiont Trichoderma ...
TrichoGate: An improved vector system for a large scale of functional analysis of Trichoderma genes
(Frontiers Media, 2019-12-10)
Species of the genus Trichoderma are ubiquitous in the environment and are widely used in agriculture, as biopesticides, and in the industry for the production of plant cell wall-degrading enzymes. Trichoderma represents ...
Transformation of Cyclaneusma minus with green fluorescent protein (GFP) to enable screening of fungi for biocontrol activity
(MDPI AG, 2012)
Cyclaneusma needle-cast has a major impact on the New Zealand forest industry. The causal agent, Cyclaneusma minus, causes most severe damage to 11–20 year-old trees and currently there are no economically viable procedures ...
Pheromones use in smart-autoinoculation systems using insects as vectors of plant pathogens in weed biocontrol
(National Centre for Advanced Bio-Protection Technologies, 2004-07)
Insect pheromones have also been developed and successfully used in a number of New Zealand horticultural crops for monitoring or direct control strategies Synthetic pheromones have been used in NZ for delimiting the Asian ...
Development of an isolate-specific marker for tracking Phaeomoniella chlamydospora infection in grapevines
(Mycological Society of America, 2005)
Petri disease causes decline of grapevines worldwide. The grapevine endophyte Phaeomoniella chlamydospora is the most important fungal pathogen associated with this disease. Epidemiological studies of this pathogen have ...
