    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract In agriculture, plant diseases caused by Phytophthora species are widespread and cause enormous yield losses in a large variety of crops. Disease control is costly and often depends on preventive fungicide treatments that can have harmful side effects. Development of durable resistant cultivars to control plant diseases is therefore under a high demand. We are studying on a novel type of immune receptors that could be employed as genetically determined Phytophthora disease resistance components. Previously, Arabidopsis lectin receptor kinase I.9 (LecRK-I.9) was found to be essential for Phytophthora resistance (Bouwmeester et al. 2011 PloS Pathogens). LecRK-I.9 is a member of a family of 45 LecRKs in Arabidopsis. The functions of these LecRKs were determined by screening the phenotypes of a genome-wide collection of T-DNA insertion mutants upon infection with various Phytophthora spp. and with bacterial and fungal pathogens. One candidate was selected for more detailed analysis. In addition, homologs of Arabidopsis LecRKs in potato and tomato are being investigated for a function in Phytophthora disease resistance.
