About this book

This book is a first attempt to link well known plant resistance phenomena with emerging concepts in molecular biology. Resistance phenomena such as the local lesion response, induced resistance, "green islands" and resistance in various crop plants are linked with new information on gene-silencing mechanisms, gene silencing suppressors, movement proteins and plasmodesmatal gating, downstream signalling components, etc.

Contents

Preface. Contributors. Part A. General Aspects. 1. Applied aspects of induced resistance to plant virus infection. 2. Viral determinants of resistance versus susceptibility. 3. RNA silencing: a natural resistance mechanism in plants. 4. Recognition and signal transduction associated with R gene-mediated resistance. 5. The local lesion response. 6. Induced resistance mechanisms. 7. Host gene-mediated virus resistance mechanisms and signaling in Arabidopsis. 8. Viral counter-defense molecules. 9. Dark green islands; the phenomenon. 10. Resistance to infection. 11. Reducing virus associated crop loss through resistance to insect vectors. 12. Cross-protection. 13. Arrest in viral transport as basis for plant resistance to infection. 14. Plant metabolism associated with resistance and susceptibility. Part B. Crop Related. 1. Resistance to viruses in potato. 2. Common beans. 3. Virus susceptibility and resistance in lettuce. 4. Resistance to tobacco mosaic virus and tomato mosaic virus in tomato. 5. Resistance to Turnip mosaic virus in the Brassicaceae. 6.

Biography

Gad Loebenstein. Ph.D. Graduated from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and joined the Agricultural Research Organization, Volcani Center, Israel. He served as Head of the Department pf Plant Virology, Director pf the Agricultural Research Organization and Chief Scientist of the Ministry of Agriculture. His major research interests are plant virus diseases and natural resistance mechanisms of plants to viruses. His published work includes more than 200 scientific and technical papers. He was appointed as Adjunct Professor at the Hebrew University and at the Tel Aviv University, and at the latter as Professor Emeritus. He is a Fellow of the American Phytopathological Society, a Corresponding Member at the German Phytomedizinische Society and a member of the Kazakh Academy for Agriculture. In 1982 he received the Rothschild Prize for Agriculture. Dr. John P. Carr PhD in UK with Michael Wilson (1980-83), Postdoc with Dan Klessig (University of Utah and Rutgers University: 1984-1989), Research Associate with Milton Zaitlin (Cornell University: 1989-1993), own research group at Cambridge University since 1993 (Senior Lecturer in Molecular Plant Pathology).
