Synergies and trade-offs between insect and pathogen resistance in maize leaves and roots

Erb, Matthias ; Balmer, Yves ; de Lange, Elvira S. ; von Merey, Georg ; Planchamp, Chantal ; Robert, Christelle Aurélie Maud ; Röder, Gregory ; Sobhy, Islam ; Zwahlen, Claudia ; Mauch-Mani, Brigitte ; Turlings, Ted C. J.

In: Plant, Cell & Environment, 2011, vol. 34, no. 7, p. 1088-1103

Determining links between plant defence strategies is important to understand plant evolution and to optimize crop breeding strategies. Although several examples of synergies and trade-offs between defence traits are known for plants that are under attack by multiple organisms, few studies have attempted to measure correlations of defensive strategies using specific single attackers. Such links...

Study of the Role of Antimicrobial Glucosinolate-Derived Isothiocyanates in Resistance of Arabidopsis to Microbial Pathogens

Tierens, Koenraad F.M.-J. ; Thomma, Bart P.H.J. ; Brouwer, Margreet ; Schmidt, Jürgen ; Kistner, Katherine ; Porzel, Andrea ; Mauch-Mani, Brigitte ; Cammue, Bruno P.A. ; Broekaert, Willem F.

In: Plant Physiology, 2001, vol. 125, no. 4, p. 1688-1699

Crude aqueous extracts from Arabidopsis leaves were subjected to chromatographic separations, after which the different fractions were monitored for antimicrobial activity using the fungus Neurospora crassa as a test organism. Two major fractions were obtained that appeared to have the same abundance in leaves from untreated plants versus leaves from plants challenge inoculated with the...

ß-Aminobutyric Acid-Induced Protection of Arabidopsis against the Necrotrophic Fungus Botrytis cinerea

Zimmerli, Laurent ; Métraux, Jean-Pierre ; Mauch-Mani, Brigitte

In: Plant Physiology, 2001, vol. 126, no. 2, p. 517-523

The non-protein amino acid ß-aminobutyric acid (BABA) protects numerous plants against various pathogens. Protection of Arabidopsis plants against virulent pathogens involves the potentiation of pathogen-specific defense responses. To extend the analysis of the mode of action of BABA to necrotrophs we evaluated the effect of this chemical on Arabidopsis plants infected with the gray mold fungus...

Antifungal Hydrolases in Pea Tissue : II. Inhibition of Fungal Growth by Combinations of Chitinase and β-1,3-Glucanase

Mauch, Felix ; Mauch-Mani, Brigitte ; Boller, Thomas

In: Plant Physiology, 1988, vol. 88, no. 3, p. 936-942

Chitinase and ß-1,3-glucanase purified from pea pods acted synergistically in the degradation of fungal cell walls. The antifungal potential of the two enzymes was studied directly by adding protein preparations to paper discs placed on agar plates containing germinated fungal spores. Protein extracts from pea pods infected with Fusarium solani f.sp. phaseoli, which contained high...
