- ... Cerato-platanin proteins (CPPs) are small non-catalytic, cysteine-rich hydrophobic proteins produced by filamentous fungi. The genome of Fusarium graminearum, the causal agent of Fusarium head blight disease of wheat and other cereal grains, contains two genes putatively encoding for CPPs. To better characterize their features, the two FgCPPs were heterologously expressed in Pichia pastoris. The r ...

- ... A better understanding of the plant metabolites produced in response to disease infection may be useful for the development of disease-resistant crop varieties. In the present study, ultra high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to quadrupole-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (QTOF-MS) was used to identify differentially accumulated metabolites in a subset of sugar beet genotypes harbouring ...
