- ... The growth of the biotrophic pathogen Cladosporium fulvum within the tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) leaf is restricted to the intercellular space. Previous studies from this laboratory have demonstrated that γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) accumulates to millimolar concentrations in the apoplast during a compatible interaction. We decided to further investigate the role of GABA during infection ...

- ... Palatinose (isomaltulose, 6-O-α-D-glucopyranosyl-D-fructose) is a structural isomer of sucrose which is produced from sucrose by some bacterial strains as a reserve material during periods of low carbon availability. The ability to synthesise palatinose is not only advantageous for the bacteria but is also of industrial interest since palatinose is used as a sucrose substitute in food production. ...
