Present study illustrates the role of Fusarium oxysporum ciceri Race1 (Foc1) induced redox responsive transcripts in regulating. Abstract. Based on the differential reaction of 10 chickpea cultivars to pathogenic isolates of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. ciceri, the existence of at. About ha are sown annually to chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) in Andalucia, southern Spain, approximately 66% of the total national acreage of the crop.

Three biological replicates were used for all microscopic studies. Along with PG, PL has also been postulated to be involved fuwarium plant penetration and colonization by phytopathogens [ 61 ].

Tissue sectioning, fixation, and dehydration likely led to membrane injury resulting rwces abnormal stain uptake even by uninduced samples. Kistler HC Genetic diversity in the plant-pathogenic fungus Fusarium oxysporum.

JG62 selection from germplasm is susceptible to Fusarium f.sp.ciceeri, while Digvijay Phule G X Bheema is resistant to the disease [ 7 ]. Expression of both bZIP domain containing TF and homeodomain leucine zipper like protein showed expressional changes in both plants during all time points of the assay. Although this hypothesis is reasonable, the lack of phylogenetic resolution within monophyletic formae speciales of F.

In WR, cell shrinkage and nuclear adpression were evident at 12dpi, but to a lesser extent than in infected JG62 plants Fig. Transcription factor associated proteins, such as polynucleotidyl transferase FAR1 showed comparably higher expression in susceptible JG62 plants compared to resistant plants, except at 1. Several redox-responsive transcripts, cellular transporters, TFs, and sugar-metabolizing ESTs identified in the chickpea— Fusarium case study [27][29] were subjected to BLAST analyses, their Arabidopsis homologous genes identified and used as inputs for network generation using Pathway Studio Software version7.

In the present study, the role of sugar metabolizers as intracellular signal transmitters and modulators are also examined.

Survival of Fusarium oxysporum f. In addition, auto fluorescence of chickpea plants was assessed at wavelengths of — nm.

These soluble sugars are known to actively participate in oxidative stress regulation []. Plant Signaling and Behavior 5: Biochemical and immunoblot assays showed dissimilar results, probably due to different substrate identities for MDA—TBA and MDA—protein conjugates in biochemical and immunoblot experiments, respectively.


Biochem Biophys Res Comm Three sets of primers viz. HSF3 downregulated peroxidases Fig. I—Lwhereas WR plants showed uniform cell layers as uninfected controls Fig. Thus the gene mainly expressed during initial surface colonization and up to 2 dpi, when the fungus invades root cortex; and vascular region thereafter in JGI, as also observed by confocal microscopy.

However, in the present case study, in compatible interactions such nuclear migration was assumed to be the morphological feature indicating gradual PCD [55]but in oxyspoum of incompatible interactions in which PCD was not evident, why such nuclear migration occurred was unclear.

Cell wall extracellular matrix proteins CWEMPs are the glycoproteins covalently linked to cell wall matrix and are major pathogen virulence factors. In compatible interaction, fungal pegs were initially observed in cortical root cells at 4dpi Fig.

MYB domain containing TF, a regulator of HR, biotic stress and salt tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana [96] — [98]was found to show fluctuations at early time points of Foc1 infection which reached stable expressional levels at later time points in resistant plants.

Quantitative real time polymerase chain reaction exhibited differential expression patterns of redox regulators, cellular transporters and transcription factors during Foc1 progression. Pathogenic variability and host resistance in the Fusarium oxysporum f.

We transformed Foc race 2 using green fluorescent protein GFP gene and used it to characterize pathogen progression and colonization in wilt-susceptible JG62 and wilt-resistant Digvijay chickpea cultivars using confocal microscopy. The present study illustrates the mode of pathogen entry and investigates the expression pattern of several redox responsive transcripts such as ROS generators and scavengers, cytochrome-dependent redox signal transducers, and intracellular ROS signal transducers during pathogen progression and establishment.

Races of Fusarium oxysporum ciceri in Andalucia, southern Spain

Conversely, race 5 shows the lowest diversity in fingerprinting and RAPD haplotypes and is the most virulent of all races reported in the Mediterranean region [13,15,17]. Differences in the stages of plant-pathogen interaction might account for the difference in aggressiveness between F. Zhang K, Letham DS, John PC Cytokinin controls the cell cycle at mitosis by stimulating the tyrosine dephosphorylation and activation of p34cdc2-like H1 histone kinase. Regardless of the origin, the similarities in race composition between the Mediterranean region and California indicate that repeated migration has occurred between these two areas rather than the independent evolution of races in different regions.


World J Microbiol Biotechnol. Ann Rev Phytopathol Therefore, we would expect an ancestral race to be virulent on fewer resistant cultivars than the more recently derived races. Mol Plant Pathol 5: These fungal pathogenicity genes are categorized based on formation of infection structures, cell wall degradation, toxin biosynthesis, signaling and proteins suppressing plant defense [ 8 — 10 ].

These results were found to validate earlier reports [36]. It can be speculated that the Mediterranean region, or the Fertile Crescent, which is the diversity center for Cicer spp.

Expression and content of sugar metabolizing genes and sugars in Foc1 infected chickpea roots. Annu Rev Phytopathol Additionally, the expression of several candidate pathogen virulence genes was analyzed using quantitative reverse transcriptase PCR qRT-PCRwhich showed their characteristic expression in wilt-susceptible and resistant chickpea cultivars.

Biochem Biophys Acta in press. Similar procedure was followed for estimating the biomass of the pathogen in the fractions of chickpea root and shoot tissues 2 inch fractions from the root tip clipped for inoculation at different time points. However, 2dpi showed comparable expression in both the infected varieties, while 3dpi exhibited a reversed expression pattern in resistant plants Fig. Disappearance f.sp.cixeri CBR at 3dpi in resistant plants suggests a transitory attempt of the fungus to overpower the resistant host machinery, which probably failed at later hours of infection.
