- ... Verticillium dahliae Kleb. is a soil-borne fungi that colonizes vascular tissues and induces early senescence in potato in a disease called Verticillium wilt. A diploid potato clone, 07506-01, was infected at high levels with V. dahliae but did not develop symptoms, indicating tolerance to the pathogen. Tolerance was not associated with the Ve2 resistance gene as 07506-01 was found to carry suscep ...
