By R. K. S. Wood FRS (auth.), John A. Bailey (eds.)

This publication is a set of papers awarded at a NATO complicated study Workshop on "Biology and Molecular Biology of Plant-Pathogen Interactions" which was once held at Dillington university, Ilminster, united kingdom, 1-6 September 1985. It have been preceded via complex research Institutes at Porte Conte, Sardinia in 1975 and at Cape Sounion, Greece in 1981. lately, equipment for the manipulation and move of genes have revolutionized our knowing of gene constitution and serve as. It was once hence opportune to assemble scientists from specified disciplines, e. g. plant pathology, cytology, biochemistry and molecular biology to debate our current knowing of mobile interactions among crops. We additionally explored how the capability provided via the more recent molecular applied sciences might top be learned. It quickly turned glaring on the Workshop, and is a repeated topic of this ebook, that destiny learn will want centred multi­ disciplinary programmes. some of the new methods could be priceless. for instance, immunocytochemistry does, for the 1st time, permit molecules to be positioned accurately inside of contaminated tissues. both, the equipment of DNA isolation and gene transformation will facilitate the isolation and characterization of genes linked to pathogenesis and specificity. the outline on the Workshop of immunocytochemical protocols and of transformation platforms for pathogenic fungi have already motivated an upsurge in study on plant-pathogen relationships. The papers talk about many interactions among vegetation and fungal and bacterial pathogens, but in addition supply a comparability with mycorrhizal and symbiotic relationships, and people regarding mycoparasites.

Furthermore, a recent ultrastructural study [38] indicates that the fungi only develop in tissues where cells are dead and that hyphae in contact with living non-host cells become vacuolate and senesce. Ericoid endomycorrhizal fungi can, on the contrary, penetrate the living cells of roots of non-host plants. The fungus extensively colonizes the root tissues, including the central cylinder, but does not form hyphal coils in the non-host cells. The plant plasmalemma does not extend around the invading hyphae and there is no increase in the cytoplasmic content of the cells in response to the fungal invasion.

As noted by Aist [13], the possible physiological significance of these specialized infection structures merits more attention. Intracellular primary hyphae emerge from infection vesicles and colonize adjacent epidermal and cortical cells. Primary hyphae are greatly constricted where they penetrate from cell to cell, and as with infection pegs, penetration appears to involve localized enzymic degradation of the cell wall [3,14]. 41 Figure 2. Host wall (HW) adjacent to infection peg (IP) shows enhanced staining with: a) periodic acid-chromic acid-phosphotungstic acid b) periodic acid-silver methenamine A, appressorium; AC, appressorial cone; Cu, cuticle.
