Summary of "Isolate-Cultivar Interactions, In Vitro Growth, and Fungicide Sensitivity of Fusarium oxysporum Isolates Causing Seedling Disease on Soybean."

Fusarium oxysporum is frequently associated with soybean root rot in the United States. Information about pathogenicity and other phenotypic characteristics of F. oxysporum populations is limited. The objective of the research described herein was to assess phenotypic characteristics of F. oxysporum isolates from soybean, including the interaction between isolates and soybean cultivars, fungal growth characteristics in culture, and sensitivity to fungicides commonly used as seed treatment products. The pathogenicity of 14 isolates was evaluated in rolled-towel and Petri-dish assays using 11 soybean cultivars. In the rolled-towel assay, seed were inoculated with a conidial suspension and disease severity was observed. In the Petri-dish assay, F. oxysporum isolates were grown on 2% water agar and seed were placed on the F. oxysporum colony to observe the symptoms that developed. Cultivars differed in susceptibility to F. oxysporum, and significant (P = 0.0140) isolate-cultivar interactions were observed. F. oxysporum isolates differed in radial growth on potato dextrose agar at 25°C. Pyraclostrobin and trifloxystrobin reduced conidial germination with average 50% effective concentration (EC) of 0.15 and 0.20 µg active ingredient (a.i.)/ml, respectively. Ipconazole reduced fungal growth with average EC of 0.23 µg a.i./ml, whereas fludioxonil was ineffective. Our results illustrate soybean F. oxysporum isolate variability and the potential for their management through cultivar selection or seed treatment.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The concentration of a compound needed to reduce population growth of organisms, including eukaryotic cells, by 50% in vitro. Though often expressed to denote in vitro antibacterial activity, it is also used as a benchmark for cytotoxicity to eukaryotic cells in culture.

Screening techniques first developed in yeast to identify genes encoding interacting proteins. Variations are used to evaluate interplay between proteins and other molecules. Two-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for protein-protein interactions, one-hybrid for DNA-protein interactions, three-hybrid interactions for RNA-protein interactions or ligand-based interactions. Reverse n-hybrid techniques refer to analysis for mutations or other small molecules that dissociate known interactions.

A technique of culturing mixed cell types in vitro to allow their synergistic or antagonistic interactions, such as on CELL DIFFERENTIATION or APOPTOSIS. Coculture can be of different types of cells, tissues, or organs from normal or disease states.

The interactions of particles responsible for their scattering and transformations (decays and reactions). Because of interactions, an isolated particle may decay into other particles. Two particles passing near each other may transform, perhaps into the same particles but with changed momenta (elastic scattering) or into other particles (inelastic scattering). Interactions fall into three groups: strong, electromagnetic, and weak. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science & Technology, 7th ed)

An assisted reproductive technique that includes the direct handling and manipulation of oocytes and sperm to achieve fertilization in vitro.
