Additional yield loss caused by the fungus the total financial costs of the rice blast disease for all years in each of the three scenarios were $265,691,269, $117,507,463, and $775,071,706 respectively overall, these findings necessitate: (1) more research on cisgenic breeding for blast resistance, (2) more. Two simulation models, ceres-rice (a rice growth simulation model) and blastsim (a rice leaf blast epidemic simulation model) were com- bined by linking the effects of leaf blast on rice leaf photosynthesis and biomass production based on previous experimental data new subroutines were developed, and some.
Genetic mapping showed that the rice blast avirulence gene avr-pita is tightly linked to a telomere on chromosome 3 in the plant pathogenic fungus magnaporthe grisea avr-pita corresponds in gene-for-gene fashion to the disease resistance (r) gene pi-ta analysis of spontaneous avr-pita– mutants indicated that the. And gfp-tagged fusion proteins yeast two-hybrid screening of a blast-induced rice cdna library revealed that the rice nucleus-localized protein hira was one of the interactors of this family of zinc finger effectors the interaction between zinc finger effectors and hira was in the nucleus of the rice cell, as shown by.
