Plant-Microbe Interactions, Volume 6 chronicles research and contributes to the advancement of the science of plant-microbe interactions. This edition continues the exploration into fascinating plant-microbe interactions along with nematode-plant interactions at the molecular level, which leads to significant progress in the economically important areas of agriculture and plant biology. Includes a memorium to Dr. Noel T. Keen.
In this volume:
- Discover the phenomenon of microbial-induced gall formation
- Explore new frontiers with the best-described plant-microbe association, the T-DNA transfer from Agrobacterium tumefaciens to plants and its subsequent integration into the plant genome.
- Read about the transformation of Erwinia herbicola from a normal plant epiphyte into a gall-forming pathogen.
- Delve further into type III secretory pathway with a discussion on the role of the type III protein systems in the pathogenicity of Pseudomonas syringae.
- Learn about the involvement of modulation of phytochrome levels by Rhodococcus fascians in gall formation. Molecular studies are yielding a great deal of information on the molecular basis of this interaction.
- Find out how genomic sequence information makes it possible to classify genes and deduce their evolutionary relationships. The elucidation of the important role that proteins play in plant defense is described using genomic architecture and the evolution of nucleotide-binding-site-leucine-rich-repeat plant resistance genes.
- Read a comprehensive review about the role of transporters in bacterial and fungal pathogens and their plant hosts. Transporters have been grouped into specific classes based on their structure and mechanism.
- Explore our current understanding of the well-developed genetic systems, of Ustilago maydis, a model organism being used to investigate fungal-plant pathogenicity.
- Peruse a wealth of information on the mechanisms by which Pseudomonas species protect plants from pathogens.
- See the commonality between the plant host response to viral, bacterial and fungal infection using Cauliflower mosaic virus. This relatively simple viral genome is an excellent system to demonstrate the contribution of pathogen factors to plant disease resistance and cell death.
- Review up-to-date molecular and genomic information on plant parasitic nematodes, one of the most devastating pathogens in agriculture systems, and discover their contributions toward the understanding of mechanisms of pathogenicity.
- Recognize the role of ion fluxes in the initial response of legume roots to the lip-chitooligosaccharide nodulation signals produced by symbiotic rhizobia.
