Summary of "Transcriptional response of grapevine to infection with the fungal pathogen Lasiodiplodia theobromae."

Botryosphaeria dieback on the grapevine is caused by Botryosphaeriaceae fungi, which threatens the yield and quality of grapes. At present, chemical control strategies are often observed to be ineffective in controlling the disease worldwide. Improving our understanding of the molecular mechanisms that confer resistance to pathogens would facilitate the development of more pathogen-tolerant grape varieties. Here, we used RNA sequencing analysis to profile the transcriptome of grapevine green shoots infected with Lasiodiplodia theobromae over a time course of 4, 8 and 12 hours post inoculation. A total of 5181 genes were identified as differentially expressed genes (DEGs), and DEGs were more abundant over time. Further analysis revealed that many of these DEGs are involved in plant-pathogen interactions, hormone signal transduction and phenylpropanoid biosynthesis pathways, suggesting that innate immunity, phytohormone signaling and many phenylpropanoid compounds, which constitute a complex defense network in plants, are involved in the response of grapevine against to L. theobromae infection. This study provides novel insights into the molecular mechanisms of plant-pathogen interactions that will be valuable for the genetic improvement of grapevines.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mitosporic Ophiostomataceae fungal genus, whose species Sporothrix schenckii is a well-known animal pathogen. The conidia of this soil fungus may be inhaled causing a primary lung infection, or may infect independently via skin punctures.

Infection with a fungus of the genus COCCIDIOIDES, endemic to the SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES. It is sometimes called valley fever but should not be confused with RIFT VALLEY FEVER. Infection is caused by inhalation of airborne, fungal particles known as arthroconidia, a form of FUNGAL SPORES. A primary form is an acute, benign, self-limited respiratory infection. A secondary form is a virulent, severe, chronic, progressive granulomatous disease with systemic involvement. It can be detected by use of COCCIDIOIDIN.

Fungal pathogen which causes Soybean Rust disease in Soybeans (Glycine max).

A mitosporic Ceratobasidiaceae fungal genus that is an important plant pathogen affecting potatoes and other plants. There are numerous teleomorphs.

Infection by a variety of fungi, usually through four possible mechanisms: superficial infection producing conjunctivitis, keratitis, or lacrimal obstruction; extension of infection from neighboring structures - skin, paranasal sinuses, nasopharynx; direct introduction during surgery or accidental penetrating trauma; or via the blood or lymphatic routes in patients with underlying mycoses.
