Great mystery of a plant defence pathway unravelled

New research findings could provide fresh leads for breeding crops with an improved defence against diseases caused by pathogenic microbes. Together with several partners, scientists from Wageningen UR (University & Research centre) have discovered that RLP-receptors located at the outside of plant cells and playing an important role in plant defence, join forces with other...

In-depth understanding of the molecular warfare of plants against pathogens.

Scientist from the Sainsbury Laboratory and the John Innes Centre on the Norwich Research Park have used the synchrotron’s powerful structural biology capabilities, at Diamond Light Sources, to investigate the interplay between thale cress ( Arabidopsis thaliana ) and the bacteria Pseudomonas syringae , a well-known plant-pathogen ‘model’ system. This study adds...

An approach for crop defence waiting to be commercialise

Antibody-mediated resistance is a new genetic engineering strategy to attenuate or control plant pathogens. This is a multidisciplinary strategy that needs experts in immunology, plant biologist and genetic engineering to develop. Antibody-mediated resistance is an extension of pathogen mediated resistance; it allows disease-resistance to be introduced to plants. Antibodies are ectopic...
