Molecular Plant Pathology: The Top 10 oomycete pathogens in molecular plant pathology (2014)

Molecular Plant Pathology: The Top 10 oomycete pathogens in molecular plant pathology (2014) | Molecular plan pathology | Scoop.it

Oomycetes form a deep lineage of eukaryotic organisms that includes a large number of plant pathogens that threaten natural and managed ecosystems. We undertook a survey to query the community for their ranking of plant pathogenic oomycete species based on scientific and economic importance. In total, we received 263 votes from 62 scientists in 15 countries for a total of 33 species. The Top 10 species and their ranking are: (1) Phytophthora infestans; (2, tied) Hyaloperonospora arabidopsidis; (2, tied) Phytophthora ramorum; (4) Phytophthora sojae; (5) Phytophthora capsici; (6) Plasmopara viticola; (7) Phytophthora cinnamomi; (8, tied) Phytophthora parasitica; (8, tied) Pythium ultimum; and (10) Albugo candida. The article provides an introduction to these 10 taxa and a snapshot of current research. We hope that the list will serve as a benchmark for future trends in oomycete research.

Cyclic lipopeptides from Bacillus subtilis activate distinct patterns of defence responses in grapevine - Farace - Molecular Plant Pathology - Wiley Online Library

Cyclic lipopeptides from Bacillus subtilis activate distinct patterns of defence responses in grapevine - Farace - Molecular Plant Pathology - Wiley Online Library | Molecular plan pathology | Scoop.it
Summary

Non-self recognition of microorganisms partly relies on the perception of microbe-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs) and leads to the activation of an innate immune response. Bacillus subtilis produces three main families of cyclic lipopeptides (LPs), namely, surfactins, iturins and fengycins. Although LPs have been involved in ISR activation, little is known about defence responses induced by these molecules and their involvement in local resistance to fungi. Here we showed that purified surfactin, mycosubtilin (iturin family) and plipastatin (fengycin family) are perceived by grapevine plant cells. Although surfactin and mycosubtilin stimulated grapevine innate immune responses, they differentially activated early signalling pathways and defence gene expression. By contrast, plipastatin perception by grapevine cells only resulted in early signalling activation. Gene expression analysis suggested that mycosubtilin activated salicylic acid (SA) and jasmonic acid (JA) signalling pathways whereas surfactin mainly induced a SA-regulated response. Although mycosubtilin and plipastatin displayed direct antifungal activity, only surfactin and mycosubtilin treatments resulted in a local long-lasting enhanced tolerance to the necrotrophic fungus Botrytis cinerea in grapevine leaves. Moreover, challenge with specific strains overproducing surfactin and mycosubtilin led to a slightly enhanced stimulation of defence response compared to the LPs non-producing strain of B. subtilis. Altogether, our results provide the first comprehensive view of the involvement of LPs from B. subtilis in grapevine plant defence and local resistance against the necrotrophic pathogen B. cinerea. Moreover, this work is the first to highlight the ability of mycosubtilin to trigger an immune response in plants.
