Modification of gibberellin signalling (metabolism & signal transduction) in sugar beet: analysis of potential targets for crop improvement
Sugar beet, Beta vulgaris spp. vulgaris is a biennial long day plant with an obligate requirement for vernalization (prolonged exposure to low temperature). As a spring crop in temperate European climates, it is vulnerable ...
Progress towards the understanding and control of sugar beet rhizomania disease
Rhizomania is a soil-borne disease that occurs throughout the major sugar beet growing regions of the world, causing severe yield losses in the absence of effective control measures. It is caused by Beet necrotic yellow ...
The selection and characterisation of resistance to Polymyxa betae, vector of Beet necrotic yellow vein virus, derived from wild sea beet.
The plasmodiophoromycete Polymyxa betae is an obligate root parasite that transmits Beet necrotic yellow vein virus (BNYVV), the cause of sugar beet rhizomania disease. Currently, control of this disease is achieved through ...
Barley root morphology affects the zoospore production rate by the obligate root parasite and soil-borne virus vector Polymyxa graminis.
Plasmodiophorid parasites in the genus Polymyxa infect roots by means of zoospores and transmit more than 15 soil-borne viruses in a wide range of arable crops. Barley mutants, selected for variations in root hair formation ...
Barley elicits a similar early basal defence response during host and non-host interactions with Polymyxa root parasites
Plant viruses transmitted by the obligate root-infecting plasmodiophorid parasites Polymyxa graminis and Polymyxa betae cause devastating yield losses to cereal and sugar beet crops worldwide. Barley is a non-host for P. ...
Gibberellin as a factor in floral regulatory networks
Gibberellins (GAs) function not only to promote the growth of plant organs, but also to induce phase transitions during development. Their involvement in flower initiation in long-day (LD) and biennial plants is well ...
