- ... KEY MESSAGE: TaUGT5: can reduce the proliferation and destruction of F. graminearum and enhance the ability of FHB resistance in wheat. Deoxynivalenol (DON) is one of the most important toxins produced by Fusarium species that enhances the spread of the pathogen in the host. As a defense, the UDP-glycosyltransferase (UGT) family has been deduced to transform DON into the less toxic form DON-3-O-gl ...

- ... The resistance to Fusarium head blight (FHB) in wheat is mainly via the restrain of fungal expansion through spike rachis (type II resistance). In order to unravel the resistance mechanisms, Brachypodium distachyon 21 (Bd21), a monocotyledonous model plant, was previously proved to interact with F. graminearum, while the disease development in spike still needs to be explored in detail. Herein, it ...
