Parasitism of Rhizoctonia solani by strains of Trichoderma spp.  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Rhizoctonia solani causes serious diseases in a wide range of plant species. The fungus Trichoderma has been shown to be particularly effective in the control of the pathogen. Thus, this research was carried out to screen fourteen Trichoderma strains against R. solani in vitro. All strains tested inhibited the growth of R. solani. Three T. koningii strains produced toxic metabolites with strong activity against R. solani, inhibiting the mycelial growth by 79%. T. harzianum, Th-9 reduced the viability of sclerotia of R. solani by 81.8% and T. koningii, TK-5 reduced by 53%. Electron microscopic observations revealed that all T. harzianum strains interacted with R. solani. Th-9 grew toward and coiled around the host cells, penetrating and destroying the hyphae. Penetration of host cells was apparently accomplished by mechanical activity.

Factors affecting protoplast formation by Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Novozym 234 was the most frequently used enzyme for production of Rhizoctonia solani protoplasts. Since manufacture of this enzyme was discontinued in the late 1990s, a new procedure was developed by testing lytic enzymes from Sigma and by examining factors affecting protoplast formation. The combination of 20 mg/mL Driselase and 10mg/mL lysing enzyme was effective in releasing protoplasts from R. solani. The optimal condition for enzyme treatment of mycelium was incubation at 37 degrees C for 15 min followed by 34 degrees C for 105 min. The amount of protoplasts produced was positively correlated with growth rate and negatively correlated with mycelial density. Under favorable conditions, R. solani mycelia released 1.68 x 10(6) protoplasts/mL that is comparable with that produced with Novozym 234. Among various media tested, the best solid medium for protoplast regeneration was 1% V-8 juice agar, while the best liquid medium was 10% potato dextrose broth. PMID:19715779

Patogenicidade de Rhizoctonia solani em morangueiro Pathogenicity of Rhizoctonia solani to strawberry  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available O fungo Rhizoctonia solani Kuhen tem sido isolado com maior freqüência de mudas e plantas adultas de morangueiro com sintomas de subdesenvolvimento, declínio progressivo, avermelhamento ou arroxeamento dos folíolos, pecíolos e estolhos, além do apodrecimento do ápice da coroa, estipulas e base dos pecíolos. As plantas doentes apresentavam, com freqüência, raízes escuras ou com áreas necrosadas. Fusarium spp. e Pythium spp. também estavam, reiteradamente, associados às plantas doentes. Para determinar a causa dos sintomas descritos e verificar, isoladamente ou em mistura, possível interação entre os patógenos R. solani, Fusarium sp. e Pythium sp., testaram-nos quanto à patogenicidade, em mudas de morangueiro, em casa de vegetação. Observou-se que somente quando R. solani estava presente havia reprodução dos sintomas, de modo semelhante ao observado no campo, comprovando sua patogenicidade. Fusarium e Pythium, no entanto, foram reisolados de lesões radiculares, o que indica seu possível envolvimento no complexo da doença, aumentando os sintomas de declínio em condições de campo.Rhizoctonia solani was consistently associated with strawberry plants in nurseries or in fruit production fields, with symptoms of progressive decline, stunt, reddening of leaflets, petioles and runners, besides dry rots of the crown apex, estipules and base of the petioles. These plants showed frequently roots with necrotic lesions. Fusarium spp. and Pythium spp. also were isolated from the diseased plants. This study was conducted to determine the role of each referred fungus on the disease and to investigate a possible interaction between them. For this purpose, R. solani, Pythium sp. and Fusarium sp., alone or combined one with other, were inoculated in strawberry plants, in the greenhouse. The results showed that only when R. solani was present, there was an identical reproduction of the symptoms observed in the field. Fusarium and Pythium, nevertheless, were reisolated from root lesions, indicating the possibility of its involvement with the disease, increasing the symptoms of decline under field conditions.

A rare case of human mycosis by Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani is a most widely recognized strong saprophyte with a great diversity of host plants. It is a first ever case of extensive human mycosis caused by Rhizoctonia solani in a 65-year-old diabetic and hypertensive farmer, with a history of head injury caused by fall of mud wall. Necrotic material collected revealed septate fungal hyphae with bacterial co-infection. Fungal culture on SDA at 25°C showed cotton wooly growth progressing to greyish-white to shiny metallic black colonies and identified on basis of septate mycelial growth without conidia, right angle branching, presence of compact hyphal forms and anastomosis between branching hyphae on LPCB mount.

When both isolates were considered simultaneously, genotypes Sancho, AF-1805, Athenas, AF-682, Torreon, and Galileo were highly resistant. Genotypes Sancho and AF-1805 had the lowest disease severity levels in relation to isolate RS-9, and genotype Gold Pride, in relation to RS-10. These genotypes differed significantly from the others, within isolates. Therefore, they are potential sources of resistance to R. solani and should be considered as a priority planting choice in infested areas.

Full Text Available Isolados de Rhizoctonia solani e Rhizoctonia oryzae, agentes causais da queima-da-bainha e mancha-da-bainha, respectivamente, foram coletados em lavouras de arroz irrigado no Estado do Tocantins. O objetivo deste trabalho foi avaliar a resistência de 12 cultivares de arroz a essas doenças, sob condições artificiais de inoculação, em casa de vegetação. Não houve correlação entre resistência das cultivares a R. oryzae e R. solani quanto ao comprimento da lesão na bainha infectada pelo método de palito de dentes. A relação entre tamanho da lesão na bainha e folha foi linear e significativamente negativa (r = -0,66, PIsolates of Rhizoctonia solani and Rhizoctonia oryzae, the causal agents of sheath blight and sheath rot diseases, respectively, were collected from irrigated rice fields in the State of Tocantins, Brazil. The main objective of the investigation was to assess the resistance of 12 genotypes to these diseases, under artificial inoculation tests in greenhouse condition. There was no correlation between the resistance of cultivars to R. oryzae and R. solani for lesion extension on sheath infection obtained by the toothpick method. The relationship between lesion size on sheath and leaf was linear and significantly negative (r = -0.66, P<=0.05, thereby indicating that there is no relationship between resistance of sheath and leaf to infection by R. solani in rice cultivars. Among the early maturing genotypes Labelle was highly susceptible in all methods of inoculation. The area under disease progress curve based on lesion height on the culm and the inoculation method with rice husk and grain were found more adequate for determining the differences in the degree of resistance among cultivars. Leaves exhibited resistance to infection by R. oryzae in inoculation tests with mycelial discs.

Interrelationships of Rotylenchulus reniformis with Rhizoctonia solani on Cotton  

Science.gov (United States)

The interrelationships between reniform nematode (Rotylenchulus reniformis) and the cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) seedling blight fungus (Rhizoctonia solani) were studied using three isolates of R. solani, two populations of R. reniformis at multiple inoculum levels, and the cotton cultivars Dehapine 90 (DP 90) and Dehapine 41 (DP 41). Colonization of cotton hypocotyl tissue by R. solani resulted in increases (P ? 0.05) in nematode population densities in soil and in eggs recovered from the root systems in both 40- and 90-day-duration experiments. Increases in soil population densities resulted mainly from increases in juveniles. Enhanced reproduction of R. reniformis in the presence of R. solani was consistent across isolates (1, 2, and 3) of R. solani and populations (1 and 2) and inoculum levels (0.5, 2, 4, and 8 individuals/g of soil) of R. reniformis, regardless of cotton cultivar (DP 90 or DP 41). Severity of seedling blight was not influenced by the nematode. Rhizoctonia solani caused reductions (P ? 0.05) in cotton growth in 40- and 90-day periods. Rotylenchulus reniformis reduced cotton growth at 90 days. The relationship between nematode inoculum levels and plant growth reductions was linear. At 90 days, the combined effects of these pathogens were antagonistic to plant growth.

Antifungal effect and mechanism of chitosan against the rice sheath blight pathogen, Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

The antifungal properties and mechanism of three types of chitosan against the rice sheath blight pathogen, Rhizoctonia solani, were evaluated. Each chitosan had strong antifungal activity against R. solani and protected rice seedlings from sheath blight, in particular, two types of acid-soluble chitosan caused a 60-91 % inhibition in mycelial growth, 31-84 % inhibition of disease incidence, and 66-91 % inhibition in lesion length. The mechanism of chitosan in protection of rice from R. solani pathogen was attributed to direct destruction of the mycelium, evidenced by scanning and transmission electron microscopic observations and pathogenicity testing; indirect induced resistance was evidenced by the changes in the activities of the defense-related phenylalanine ammonia lyase, peroxidase and polyphenol oxidase in rice seedling. To our knowledge, this is the first report on the antifungal activity of chitosan against rice R. solani. PMID:22932934

Proteomic analysis of Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 sclerotia maturation.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani (R. solani), a soil-borne necrotrophic pathogen, causes various plant diseases. Rhizoctonia solani is a mitosporic fungus, the sclerotium of which is the primary inoculum and ensures survival of the fungus during the offseason of the host crop. Since the fungus does not produce any asexual or sexual spores, understanding the biology of sclerotia is important to examine pathogen ecology and develop more efficient methods for crop protection. Here, one- and two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (1-DE and 2-DE, respectively) were used to examine protein regulation during the maturation of fungal sclerotia. A total of 75 proteins (20 proteins from 1-DE using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI)-time of flight (TOF) mass spectrometry (MS) and 55 proteins from 2-DE using MALDI-TOF MS or MALDI-TOF/TOF MS) were differentially expressed during sclerotial maturation. The identified proteins were classified into ten categories based on their biological functions, including genetic information processing, carbohydrate metabolism, cell defense, amino acid metabolism, nucleotide metabolism, cellular processes, pathogenicity and mycotoxin production, and hypothetical or unknown functions. Interestingly, two vacuole function-related proteins were highly up-regulated throughout sclerotial maturation, which was confirmed at the transcript level by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis. These findings contribute to our understanding of the biology of R. solani sclerotia. PMID:24863472

Incompatibilidade somática em Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA da soja Somatic incompatibility in Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA of soybean

Full Text Available O fungo Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA é um dos patógenos mais importantes que afeta a cultura da soja no Brasil, causando a mela ou queima foliar. A doença está associada com a fase teleomórfica de R. solani, o basidiomiceto Thanatephorus cucumeris. Neste estudo, baseando em conhecimento prévio sobre a biologia de R. solani AG-1 IA, duas hipóteses foram testadas. Na primeira hipótese postulou-se a ocorrência de incompatibilidade somática em populações de R. solani AG-1 IA. A segunda hipótese testada foi de que esta população de R. solani AG-1 IA da soja apresenta indicações de estrutura sexual clonal. Duas amostras de isolados de R. solani AG-1 IA da soja obtidas no Maranhão e no Mato Grosso foram utilizadas. Na primeira amostra, foram selecionados isolados apresentando diferentes perfis de RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA, procurando maximizar a diversidade dos isolados, e evitando a introdução de possíveis clones no teste. Os isolados foram pareados em todas as combinações possíveis em meio de BDA mais carvão ativado e examinados quanto às interações somáticas resultantes. Seis grupos de incompatibilidade somática (GCS foram detectados entre 24 isolados do AG-1 IA. Entretanto, análises microscópicas dos pareamentos entre isolados indicaram maior freqüência de incompatibilidade somática, impossibilitando o grupamento em GCS. No geral, a metodologia de avaliação das interações somáticas macroscópicas em meio BDA + carvão ativado, não se mostrou totalmente apropriada para discriminação das categorias de reações de compatibilidade entre isolados de R. solani AG-1 IA. Com a segunda amostra procurou-se determinar a ocorrência de clones na população do patógeno, ou seja, isolados que compartilham o mesmo padrão fenotípico de RAPD e somaticamente compatíveis. No caso de R. solani AG 1 IA da soja, a gama de interações somáticas entre pareamentos de isolados e, principalmente, os desvios na associação estrita entre os GCS detectados neste trabalho, conjuntamente com os perfis de RAPD observados anteriormente por Fenille (11 e Meyer (20, são consistentes com recombinação. Entretanto, o patógeno ainda apresenta um componente clonal expressivo na população. De um total de 43 isolados, os exemplos de prováveis clones na população do patógeno totalizaram 16 isolados.Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group 1 IA (AG-1 IA is considered one of the most important pathogens affecting soybean in Brazil, causing the aerial or foliar blight. This disease is associated with the teleomorphase of R. solani AG-1 IA, the basidiomycete fungus Thanatephorus cucumeris. In this study, based on previous knowledge of the biology of R. solani AG-1 IA, two hypotheses were tested. In the first we postulated the occurrence of somatic incompatibility in populations of R. solani AG-1 IA. The second was that the population of R. solani AG1 IA from soybean has a clonal structure. Two population samples of R. solani AG-1 IA from soybean, obtained in Maranhão and Mato Grosso were analyzed. In the first sample, isolates with distinct RAPD (Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA profile were selected to maximize the genetic diversity of isolates and to avoid the introduction of clones in the assay. The isolates were paired in all possible combinations in PDA plus charcoal medium and examined according to the resulting somatic interactions. Six somatic compatibility groups (SCG were detected among 24 isolates of AG-1 IA. However, microscopic analyzes of the pairings indicated higher frequency of somatic incompatibility, resulting in the impossibility of grouping any two isolates of R. solani AG-1 IA into SCG. In general, the methodology for evaluating the macroscopic somatic interactions in PDA plus charcoal medium seemed not totally appropriate for discriminating between categories of somatic compatibility amongst isolates of R. solani AG-1 IA. With the second sample of isolates we aimed to determine the occurrence of clones in the population of the pathogen, i.e., isolates that sha

Sugar beet root rot appears regularly each year, but its intensity depends on agro ecological conditions. The predominant causers of root rot in Vojvodina are fungi from Fusarium genus and species Macrophomina phaseolina. Over the last couple of years, more intense occurrence of Rhizoctonia root rot has been observed. Rhizoctonia solani, the causal agent of root rot is present in sugar beet fields. During 2000-2005, on the territory of Vojvodina, the frequency of Rhizoctonia solani in phytopa...

Some Properties of Inulinase from Rhizoctonia solani  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The preparation and some biochemical properties of inulinase from R. solani which isolated from soil in Tekirdag - Turkey, was carried out by dialysis and concentrated with silica gel-60 then, further proceeded with Sephadex G-150 and DEAE-Cellulose chromatographies. The specific activity of the enzyme was enhanced from 0.256-5.43 U mg -1. The enzyme showed maximum activity at 35?C and pH 5.0, it was stable in the pH range of 5.0-6.5 and up to 40?C. The activity of enzyme was inhibited strongly by Hg2+ and Ag2+ and KCN and DTNB. The action mode of enzyme for inulin was determined as endohydrolitic-action by TLC.

TEMPERATURE EFFECT ON RHIZOCTONIA SOLANI ANALYZED BY MICROCALORIMETRY  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Temperature is one of the factors playing an important role in fungi growth and spread. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of temperature on the growth of ten Rhizoctonia solani isolates. Colony Growth Rate (GR was measured in potato-agar-dextrose cultures and Metabolic Efficiency (ME by isothermal microcalorimetry in R. solani isolates growing in a temperature range of 10 to 40°C at 5°C intervals. The apparent activation Energy (Ea was determined in the range of 15 to 30°C. Different values of Ea were found for each of the strains analyzed. GR increased as temperature increased up to 30°C, showing the highest values between 25°C. ME decreased as temperature increased in nine out of ten isolates, reaching an optimum for the different isolates between 15 and 25°C. Both GR and ME analyses showed different behaviors for each isolate. R. solani AG4 isolates showed a variable response to the same temperature of exposure and it appears that microcalorimetry is more sensitive in detecting early effects of heat stress.

Quantification of rice sheath blight progression caused by Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani has a wide host range, including almost all cultivated crops and its subgroup anastomosis group (AG)-1 IA causes sheath blight in rice. An accurate measurement of pathogen's biomass is a convincing tool for enumeration of this disease. Mycological characteristics and molecular diagnosis simultaneously supported that all six strains in this study were R. solani AG-1 IA. Heterokaryons between strains Rs40104, Rs40105, and Rs45811 were stable and viable, whereas Rs40103 and Rs40106 did not form viable fused cells, except for the combination of Rs40106 and Rs40104. A primer pair was highly specific to RsAROM gene of R. solani strains and the amplified fragment exists as double copies within fungal genome. The relationship between crossing point (CP) values and the amount of fungal DNA was reliable (R (2) >0.99). Based on these results, we determined R. solani's proliferation within infected stems through real time PCR using a primer pair and a Taqman probe specific to the RsAROM gene. The amount of fungal DNA within the 250 ng of tissue DNA from rice cv. Dongjin infected with Rs40104, Rs40105, and Rs45811 were 7.436, 5.830, and 5.085 ng, respectively. In contrast, the fungal DNAs within the stems inoculated with Rs40103 and Rs40106 were 0.091 and 0.842 ng. The sheath blight symptom progression approximately coincided with the amount of fungal DNA within the symptoms. In summary, our quantitative evaluation method provided reliable and objective results reflecting the amount of fungal biomass within the infected tissues and would be useful for evaluation of resistance germplasm or fungicides and estimation of inoculum potential.

Studies on Biological Control of Sugarbeet Pathogen Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A field experiment was carried out to investigate the biological control of R. solani by different organisms including bacteria and fungi. Three methods of application were used during the study. Control results differed with the method of application used. The present study indicated that all the antagonists tested inhibited infection by R. solani and that the efficacy of prevention depended on the application method used. Coating sugarbeet seeds with antagonists was produced results for applying the antagonist to control R. solani. A soil preinoculation that contained the antagonist was better than treating them with extracts of antagonists although antimicrobial compounds in the extracts have been found to control the disease to the same extent. The most effective biocontrol agent was Trichoderma harzianum. Hyphal interactions between T. harzianum and R. solani were observed by scanning electron microscopy. T. harzianum attached to the host by hyphal coils.

In Vitro Protein Synthesis and Aging in Rhizoctonia solani  

Science.gov (United States)

A study was made of the ability of cell-free protein synthesis systems from vegetative cells of different age of the fungus Rhizoctonia solani to produce polyphenylalanine. Polyuridylic acid-directed phenylalanine incorporation into peptides decreased linearly with cell age. The 105,000 × g supernatant fluid and ribosomal fractions were equally responsible for the total loss of synthetic activity of the older cells. Initial rates of phenylalanyl-transfer ribonucleic acid (tRNA) synthetase activity decreased with increasing cell age, which accounted for the defect of the supernatant fraction. An accelerated degradation of soluble phenylalanyl-RNA was associated with the ribosomes of the older cells. In vitro systems from cells of different age transferred phenylalanine from phenylalanyl-tRNA to polyphenylalanine at similar rates. Of the 15 specific aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases assayed, 5 increased and 5 decreased in specific activity with increased age; 3 others did not change during aging and 2 were below acceptable detectable levels.

Metabolite composition and bioactivity of Rhizoctonia solani sclerotial exudates.  

Science.gov (United States)

Sclerotia are vegetative structures that play a major role in survival of fungi under adverse conditions. The sclerotia of the plant pathogen Rhizoctonia solani AG2-2 IIIB exude liquid brown droplets that were evaluated for their bioactivity and toxicity against microorganisms and plant species. Also, their metabolic composition was analyzed by integrating Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance-mass spectrometry (FT-ICR/MS), gas chromatography-MS (GC/MS), and proton nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H NMR) spectroscopy. The results showed that exudates are complex mixtures composed of phenolics (17.40%), carboxylic acids (12.79%), carbohydrates (6.08%), fatty acids (3.78%), and amino acids (3.47%). The presence of such metabolites contributed to their antifungal and phytotoxic activities. The biological interpretation of the results highly suggests that the exudates not only have multiple roles in fungal physiology but also are a potential bioactive source with moderate toxicity. Our findings show with certainty that the integration of different analytical platforms is a powerful approach for extracting the maximum and reliable information on the metabolic composition of complex biological samples.

Characterization of field isolates of Trichoderma antagonistic against Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

The aim of the present study was to characterize sixteen isolates of Trichoderma originating from a field of sugar beet where disease patches caused by Rhizoctonia solani were observed. Use of both molecular and morphological characteristics gave consistent identification of the isolates. Production of water-soluble and volatile inhibitors, mycoparasitism and induced systemic resistance in plant host were investigated using in vitro and in vivo tests in both sterilized and natural soils. This functional approach revealed the intra-specific diversity as well as biocontrol potential of the different isolates. Different antagonistic mechanisms were evident for different strains. The most antagonistic strain, T30 was identified as Trichoderma gamsii. This is the first report of an efficient antagonistic strain of T. gamsii being able to reduce the disease in different conditions. The ability to produce water-soluble inhibitors or coil around the hyphae of the pathogen in vitro was not related to the disease reduction in vivo. Additionally, the strains collected from the high disease areas in the field were better antagonists. The antagonistic activity was not characteristic of a species but that of a population.

Effects of Soil Texture on the Interaction Between Rhizoctonia solani and Meloidogyne incognita on Cotton Seedlings  

Science.gov (United States)

Soils containing 60, 75, and 90% coarse particles (sand plus coarse silt) were prepared by dilution of a field soil with 246?m (60-mesh) silica sand. As the coarse-particle content of the soils increased, the synergistic interaction between Meloidogyne incognita and Rhizoctonia solani on cotton seedlings increased. Increasing the coarse-particle content of the soil also increased damage from the nematode alone and slightly increased soreshin damage from R. solani alone.

A novel postharvest rot of okra pods caused by Rhizoctonia solani in Brazil Uma nova podridão pós-colheita de frutos de quiabo causada por Rhizoctonia solani  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Okra pods with unusual brown lesions and rot were collected in a local supermarket in Brasília DF. The objective of this paper was to characterize the causal agent, to fulfill Koch's postulates and to determine some conditions conducive to disease. The pathogen was identified as Rhizoctonia solani based on morphological characteristics which fitted the fungus description, such as pale to brown hyphae, with nearly right-angled side branches constricted at the base, hyphal cells 6-10 µm wide ...

Gottlieb, David (University of Illinois, Urbana), and James L. Van Etten. Changes in fungi with age. I. Chemical composition of Rhizoctonia solani and Sclerotium bataticola. J. Bacteriol. 91:161–168. 1966.—The chemical composition of the mycelium of Rhizoctonia solani and Sclerotium bataticola was determined in cells of various ages. The percentage, per unit of dry weight, of soluble amino nitrogen, deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), ribonucleic acid (RNA), ergosterol, and protein decreased with age in both fungi. Total lipids and fatty acids increased with age in S. bataticola but remained constant in R. solani. Total carbohydrate increased with age in R. solani and decreased in S. bataticola. Fewer changes with age were observed when the results were calculated in ratio to DNA. There was no change in the ratios of protein, RNA, and soluble amino nitrogen to DNA with age in either fungus, but the ergosterol-DNA ratio decreased. The total lipid-DNA ratio and the total fatty acid-DNA ratio increased with age in both fungi, whereas the total carbohydrate-DNA ratio increased in R. solani but remained constant in S. bataticola. Both fungi contained myristic, palmitic, palmitoleic, stearic, oleic, and linoleic acids. In addition, R. solani contained pentadecanoic acid, and S. bataticola had myristoleic, linolenic, and arachidic acids. No marked change in the fatty acid pattern of S. bataticola was observed with age, whereas in R. solani the percentage of linoleic acid per total fatty acids decreased slightly when oleic acid increased.

Role of Biological Control on Some Physiological Aspects of Zea mays Infected by Rhizoctonia solani  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The results revealed that treatment with either Trichoderma harzianum or Bacillus subtilis by soil inoculation or grain coating significantly increased the percentage of healthy seedlings as well as the length, fresh and dry weight of seedlings. Photosynthetic pigments content of the leaves significantly increased in absence of Rhizoctonia solani alone. The same almost applied to soluble sugar content, amino acid content or total nitrogen of the seedlings, though less apparent or insignificant when the grains were treated with B. subtilis before growing in soil treated with 3% R. solani. R. solani lowered the test elemental content of Zea mays seedlings, while the reverse was most prominent by sowing the grains in soil amended with R. solani and T. harzianum. The results also revealed that infestation by Rhizoctonia solani significantly lowered the length of the ears and weight of 100 grains. In the mean time the weight of 100 grains significantly dropped; a response that was hardly, if at all affected by implying R. solani with Bacillus subtilis or T. harzianum. The presence of the three microorganisms increased the fresh weight of the ears but the total count or weight of the grains was lowered. The presence of R. solani in soil lowered the lipid, total carbohydrates and protein content of corn flour. Meanwhile using the biological control agents T. harzianum or B. subtilis or both initiated the increase of these components.

Reaction of faba bean genotypes to Rhizoctonia solani and resistance stability Reação de genótipos de fava a Rhizoctonia solani e estabilidade da resistência  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The production of faba bean (Phaseolus lunatus is limited due to the occurrence of Rhizoctonia canker, caused by the fungus Rhizoctonia solani. In order to select materials with potential for use in faba beans breeding programs and/or disease integrated management, 72 genotypes were evaluated and also stability of the disease resistance in relation to different pathogen isolates, inoculum densities and soil type. The seeds were sown in soil infested with the pathogen by the addition of colonized substrate (rice grains. The evaluation of genotypes was done after 15 days, using a note scale to discriminate the genotypes into five reaction classes. None of the 72 genotypes showed immunity to R. solani and only four genotypes (F-42, F-49, F-53 and F-58 behaved as highly resistant. The reactions presented by these genotypes varied according to the R. solani isolate, inoculum density and soil used. The genotype F-58 showed more stable resistance to pathogen isolates and inoculum densities. The genotype F-53 showed resistance stability in soils collected in different locations, remaining highly resistant in all situations. The genotype F-58 did not show high resistance to only one tested soil. Therefore, the genotypes F-58 and F-53 are promising sources of resistance to R. solani and should be indicated in areas infested by the pathogen.A produção de fava (Phaseolus lunatus é limitada pela ocorrência da rizoctoniose, causada pelo fungo Rhizoctonia solani.

Influence of Rhizoctonia solani on Egg Hatching and Infectivity of Rotylenchulus reniformis  

Science.gov (United States)

The effects of culture filtrates of Rhizoctonia solani and root exudates of R. solani-infected cotton (Gossypium hirsutum) seedlings on hatching of eggs and infectivity of females of Rotylenchulus reniformis were evaluated in an attempt to account for the enhanced nematode reproduction observed in the presence of this fungus. Crude filtrates of R. solani cultures growing over sterile, deionized distilled water did not affect egg hatching. Exudates from roots of cotton seedlings increased hatching of R. reniformis eggs over that observed in water controls. Exudates from cotton seedling roots not infected or infected with R. solani did not differ in their effect on egg hatching. However, infection of cotton seedlings by reniform females was increased in the presence of R. solani, resulting in the augmented egg production and juvenile population densities in soil observed in greenhouse studies.

Ultrastructural analysis of anastomosis group 9 of Rhizoctonia solani  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

The ultrastructure of R. solani AG-9 (S-21, ATCC 62804) was investigated with transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The most important characteristics were those related with cell wall thickness, cytoplasmic matrix composition, number of nuclei and nucleoli and secretory material production. The majority of examined hyphae showed lateral cell walls thinner than those recorded before. The cytoplasmic matrix consistently appeared differentiated into two classes, one formed by a highly electron dense granular fine material and the other one showing a coloidal substance of very low density which give these cells a 'tiger-like' aspect. The granular dense matrix always had abundant free ribosomes and usually surrounded the cytoplasmic organelles and the septal pore apparatus. The somatic cells showed up to 5 nuclei, some of which with three nucleoli. Masses of secretory material surrounded by membrane were regularly seen in the cytoplasm, with sizes similar to those of nuclei

Van Etten, James L. (University of Illinois, Urbana), H. Peter Molitoris, and David Gottlieb. Changes in fungi with age. II. Respiration and respiratory enzymes of Rhizoctonia solani and Sclerotium bataticola. J. Bacteriol. 91:169–175. 1966.—The rate of respiration of Rhizoctonia solani and Sclerotium bataticola decreased with age. This decrease in respiratory rate might be produced by a decrease in the specific activity of one or more enzymes involved in carbohydrate metabolism. Specific activities in cell-free extracts were measured for most of the enzymes in the hexose monophosphate shunt, Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas pathway, tricarboxylic acid cycle, and terminal electron-transport system. In addition, glucose oxidase, isocitritase, and malic enzyme were measured. In R. solani, increases in activity with age occurred for hexokinase, ?-glycerolphosphate dehydrogenase, malic dehydrogenase, and cytochrome oxidase. Decreases occurred for phosphohexokinase, aconitase, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-specific isocitric dehydrogenase, reduced nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide oxidase, and at least one of the enzymes between 3-phosphoglycerate and pyruvate. In S. bataticola, increases in activity with age were observed for phosphohexokinase, pyruvic dehydrogenase, fumarase, malic dehydrogenase, and malic enzyme, whereas none of the enzymes decreased. The specific activities of the remaining enzymes did not change with age in either fungus.

Reação de resistência de genótipos de tomateiro (Lycopersicum spp. à infecção por Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn Resistance reaction of tomato genotypes (Lycopersicum spp. to Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Dada a importância da tomaticultura no Brasil e das enfermidades que atacam esta cultura, da mesma forma que visando futuros estados em programas de melhoramento vegetal para resistência à patógenos, este trabalho teve por objetivos: avaliar o grau de patogenicidade de quatro isolados de Rhizoctonia solani obtidos de plantas doentes de tomateiro (RT, berinjelas (RB1 e RB2 e pimentão (RP, em viveiros, frente a 9 genótipos de tomateiros e avaliar a reação de resistência de 73 genótipos de tomateiros ao R. solani. Nos experimentos utilizou-se solo esterilizado, em condições de casa de vegetação. Para o experimento I, os isolados de R. solani, oriundos das plantas de tomateiro (RT e berinjela (RB, foram igualmente mais patogênicos que os isolados de berinjela (RB, e pimentão (RP, com relação aos 9 genótipos de tomateiro testados. Pode-se dizer que os isolados variaram em graus de agressividade. Quanto às reações de resistência a R. solani, observou-se que os diferentes genótipos não diferiram estatisticamente entre si. Com relação ao experimento II, entre os 73 genótipos de tomateiro (incluindo espécies selvagens, variedades nacionais e introduções, pode-se observar que houve grande variabilidade quanto a reação de resistência a R. solani (isolado do tomateiro - RT, com percentuais de sobrevivência de plantas variando de 91%, para a cultivar Quinck Pick, até 0% de sobrevivência para o genótipo LA-462. Não foi verificada imunidade em nenhum material avaliado e sim níveis de resistência, onde esta, expressa em percentagem de sobrevivência, ocorreu de uma maneira contínua, desde uma reação de suscetibilidade até altos níveis de resistência.The present study was undertaken with the following objectives: 1 to evaluate the level of pathogenicity of four Rhizoctonia solani isolates obtained from diseased tomato plants (RT, from eggplant (RB1 and RB2, and pepper (RP and tested on 9 tomato genotypes grown in experimental plots; and 2 evaluate the resistance reaction of 73 tomato genotypes to the pathogen. Experiments were performed in greenhouse using sterilized soil. In experiment I, R. solani isolates from RT and RB2 plants were identically more pathogenic RB1 and RP. In experiment II, wide variability in the resistance reaction to R. solani (isolated from a tomato plant - RT was observed among the 73 tomato genotypes (which included wild species, Brazilian varieties and introduced material, with percentage of plant survival ranging from 91% for the cultivar Quick Pick to 0% for the genotype LA-462. None of the materials tested showed immunity, but different levels of resistance were observed, ranging from susceptibility to high resistance, as expressed by the survival percentages.

Bioactive saponin from tea seed pomace with inhibitory effects against Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

The present study was aimed to characterize the antifungal principles in methanol extract of tea ( Camellia oleifera ) seed pomace. Totally, two flavonoids, camelliasides A (1) and B (2), and one saponin mixture composed of camelliasaponin B(1) (3) were identified from the methanol extract. These constituents were tested for their ability to reduce the infection of cabbage seedlings by Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn AG-4 and to inhibit growth of the pathogen on potato dextrose agar plates. The saponin mixture is a potential candidate as a new plant-derived pesticide to control Rhizoctonia damping-off of vegetable seedlings. PMID:20681650

Los aislamientos del antagonista aumentaron la qerminación de las semillas, la emergencia y el tamaño de las plántulas y redujeron la severidad de la enfermedad ocasionada por R. solani en fríjol.Several experiments were conducted to study the antagonism of 17 isolates of Trichoderma from Colombian soils with Fusarium oxysporum and Rhizoctonia solani. In "in vitro" tests, a high antagonism between colonies was found being greater the antagonism of Trichoderma with R. solani. At the microscopic level it was observed a great interaction between T. harzianum and T. hamatum with R. solani in such a way that the hyphae of the pathogen showed coiling, penetration, fragmentation and lysis. The Trichoderma isolates caused reduction in the disease severity, in the incubation period and a lower number of diseased cucumber plants when they were inoeulated with F. oxysporum f. sp, cucumerinum and these effects were better than Benomyl application. The same Trichoderma isolates increased seed germination, emergence and seedling size of bean plants inoculated with R. solani. A reduction of the disease severity was also found.

Degradation of Chlorbromuron and Related Compounds by the Fungus Rhizoctonia solani1  

Science.gov (United States)

The ability of the soil fungus Rhizoctonia solani to degrade phenyl-substituted urea herbicides was investigated. The fungus was able to transform chlorbromuron [3-(3-chloro-4-bromophenyl)-1-methyl-1-methoxyurea] to the demethylated product [3-(3-chloro-4-bromophenyl)-1-methoxyurea], which was isolated and identified. Evidence was obtained that further degradation of chlorbromuron occurred. Several other phenylurea compounds (chloroxuron, diuron, fenuron, fluometuron, linuron, metobromuron, neburon, and siduron) were also metabolized by the fungus, indicating that R. solani may possess a generalized ability to attack this group of herbicides.

Effects of Soil Temperatures and Inoculum Levels of Meloidogyne incognita and Rhizoctonia solani on Seedling Disease of Cotton  

Science.gov (United States)

Soreshin of cotton was more severe from combined infections of Rhizoctonia solani and Meloidogyne incognita than from either organism alone, when both critical soil temperature and inoculum concentrations were present. Optimum soil temperatures for disease development from combined infections were 18 and 21 C. Either 2,500 or 5,000 M. incognita larvae per plant, combined with R. solani, increased seedling disease severity over that caused by R. solani alone. When 100 or 500 larvae per plant were added with R. solani, disease severity did not change. Disease severity increased with the highest level of R. solani inoculum either alone or combined with M. incognita.

Comparative analysis of putative pathogenesis-related gene expression in two Rhizoctonia solani pathosystems.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani, teleomorph Thanatephorus cucumeris, is a polyphagous necrotrophic plant pathogen of the Basidiomycete order that is split into 14 different anastomosis groups (AGs) based on hyphal interactions and host range. In this investigation, quantitative real-time PCR (qRT-PCR) techniques were used to determine potential pathogenicity factors of R. solani in the AG1-IA/rice and AG3/potato pathosystems. These factors were identified by mining for sequences of pathogen origin in a library of rice tissue infected with R. solani AG1-IA and comparing these sequences against the recently released R. solani AG3 genome. Ten genes common to both AGs and two specific to AG1-IA were selected for expression analysis by qRT-PCR. Results indicate that a number of genes are similarly expressed by AG1 and AG3 during the early stages of pathogenesis. Grouping of these pathogenicity factors based on relatedness of expression profiles suggests three key events are involved in R. solani pathogenesis: early host contact and infiltration, adjustment to the host environment, and pathogen proliferation through necrotic tissue. Further studies of the pathogenesis-associated genes identified in this project will enable more precise elucidation of the molecular mechanisms that allow for the widespread success of R. solani as a phytopathogen and allow for more targeted, effective methods of management.

A novel postharvest rot of okra pods caused by Rhizoctonia solani in Brazil Uma nova podridão pós-colheita de frutos de quiabo causada por Rhizoctonia solani  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Okra pods with unusual brown lesions and rot were collected in a local supermarket in Brasília DF. The objective of this paper was to characterize the causal agent, to fulfill Koch's postulates and to determine some conditions conducive to disease. The pathogen was identified as Rhizoctonia solani based on morphological characteristics which fitted the fungus description, such as pale to brown hyphae, with nearly right-angled side branches constricted at the base, hyphal cells 6-10 µm wide with a septum near the base. Five isolates were obtained from infected pods and identified as AG 1-IB anastomosis group. Wounded or unwounded okra pods cv. Santa Cruz 47 were inoculated with mycelium disks of R. solani and kept in humid chambers at 12 ºC or 25 ºC. After seven days at 25 ºC, both wounded and unwounded pods were completely rotted and brown, while those kept at 12 ºC showed small lesions ranging from 0.6 to 1.0 mm only in wounded pods. The pathogen was able to grow in different materials used for assembling crates and packs of horticultural products, such as pinewood, corrugated carton, plastic, Styrofoam and newspaper sheets when kept in humid chambers (24 ºC, 96 % RH. The disease occurrence can be related to careless handling practices and to the transmission of R. solani propagules by infected plant debris or soil particles. This is the first report of Rhizoctonia solani causing postharvest rot in okra pods in Brazil.Frutos de quiabo apresentando podridão e lesões marrons foram coletados em um supermercado de Brasília DF.

Genetic and Genomic Analysis of Rhizoctonia solani Interactions with Arabidopsis; Evidence of Resistance Mediated through NADPH Oxidases  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Rhizoctonia solani is an important soil-borne necrotrophic fungal pathogen, with a broad host range and little effective resistance in crop plants. Arabidopsis is resistant to R. solani AG8 but susceptible to R. solani AG2-1. A screen of 36 Arabidopsis ecotypes and mutants affected in the auxin, camalexin, salicylic acid, abscisic acid and ethylene/jasmonic acid pathways did not reveal any variation in response to R. solani and demonstrated that resistance to AG8 was independent of these defe...

Factors affecting antifungal activity of Streptomyces philanthi RM-1-138 against Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Sheath blight disease of rice caused by Rhizoctonia solani Kühn is economically important disease in most of the world's rice growing areas. The disease causes severe yield losses of >20% of rice in Thailand. Our previous investigation reported the antifungal activity of Streptomyces philanthi RM-1-138 against R. solani PTRRC-9. In this study, glucose yeast-malt extract medium, initial pH of 7.5 and a temperature of 30 °C were found to be optimum for both cell growth and antifungal activity of S. philanthi RM-1-138. The inhibition of 94 and 100% on the growth of R. solani PTRRC-9 were achieved from the antifungal metabolites of the 6 and 9-days-old culture filtrates of S. philanthi RM-1-138, respectively. Heat treatment on the culture filtrate had slight effect on its antifungal activity. The culture broth demonstrated higher antifungal activity on growth of R. solani PTRRC-9 (90.4%) than the culture filtrate (31.5%) and its effective dose was at 0.1% (v/v). The present results indicated the possibilities of using either the culture broth or culture filtrate of S. philanthi RM-1-138 to inhibit growth of R. solani PTRRC-9. PMID:23839715

Crop Residue Affects Rhizoctonia solani Population Dynamics and Seedling Blight of Canola  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Seedling blight caused by Rhizoctonia solani Kühn substantially reduces stand establishment and seed yield of canola (Brassica napus L. in western Canada. The effect of crop residue on soil populations of R. solani and canola seedling blight was examined under field, greenhouse and laboratory conditions. Field plots were established with inoculation or noninoculation with R. solani as the main plot and barley, canola, oat and field pea residues as the sub-plots. Soil samples were collected from each subplot for analysis in a greenhouse bioassay and laboratory assay of R. solani population before seeding canola. The crop residue effect was not significant. Under inoculation with R. solani, the yield was consistently greater when canola was grown on barley residue compared to the canola residue over two-year trials, although oat and pea residue contributed to greater yield. Without inoculation, canola yield was greatest when grown on barley residue, intermediate on oat and pea and the least on canola in the first trial and in the second trial greater yield was obtained on barley and oat residues compared to other residues. In the greenhouse bioassay, canola seedling emergence was greater, while damping off and root rot were less severe, following barley or oat compared to canola or field pea in both inoculated and non-inoculated treatments. Populations of Rhizoctonia were lower following barley or oat relative to canola or field pea. Crop rotation and incorporation of barley or oat residue between canola crops may be a useful strategy to reduce seedling blight of canola.

Endophytic Bacillus Species Confer Increased Resistance in Cotton Against Damping off Disease Caused by Rhizoctonia solani  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Endophytic bacterial strains were evaluated for their efficacy against the damping off disease caused by Rhizoctonia solani in cotton. Among hundred and three endophytic bacterial strains isolated, two strains (Bacillus sp. strains EPCO102 and EPCO16 significantly increased plant growth and inhibited the mycelial growth of Rhizoctonia solani in vitro conditions. The efficacy of talc-based bioformulation of endophytic bacterial strains, EPCO102, EPCO16 and Pseudomonas fluorescens strain Pf1 amended with and without chitin in inducing systemic resistance was tested against damping off disease under greenhouse conditions. The application of the bioformulation through seed, soil and foliar spray significantly reduced disease incidence under greenhouse conditions. The amendment of chitin in the formulation further reduced the disease incidence. EPCO102, EPCO16 and Pf1 strain along with chitin treatment was recorded 46.7, 53.3 and 40.0% damping-off incidence compared to control 83.3%. Treatment with the endophytic bacterial bioformulation increased the levels of the defence-related enzymes chitinase, ?-1,3-glucanase, peroxidase, polyphenol oxidase, phenylalanine ammonia-lyase and phenol in cotton plants which had been challenged with R. solani. In addition to plant growth and antibiosis, endophytic bacterial strains enhanced the resistance in plants through the induction of defense enzymes in cotton plants.

Genetic diversity of Rhizoctonia solani associated with potato tubers in France.  

Science.gov (United States)

The soilborne fungus Rhizoctonia solani is a pathogen of many plants and causes severe damage in crops around the world. Strains of R. solani from the anastomosis group (AG) 3 attack potatoes, leading to great yield losses and to the downgrading of production. The study of the genetic diversity of the strains of R. solani in France allows the structure of the populations to be determined and adapted control strategies against this pathogen to be established. The diversity of 73 French strains isolated from tubers grown in the main potato seed production areas and 31 strains isolated in nine other countries was assessed by phylogenetic analyses of (i) the internal transcribed spacer sequences (ITS1 and ITS2) of ribosomal RNA (rRNA), (ii) a part of the gene tef-1? and (iii) the total DNA fingerprints of each strain established by amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP). The determination of the AGs of R. solani based on the sequencing of the ITS region showed three different AGs among our collection (60 AG 3 PT, 8 AG 2-1 and 5 AG 5). Grouping of the strains belonging to the same AG was confirmed by sequencing of the gene tef-1? used for the first time to study the genetic diversity of R. solani. About 42% of ITS sequences and 72% of tef-1? sequences contained polymorphic sites, suggesting that the cells of R. solani strains contain several copies of ITS and the tef-1? gene within the same nucleus or between different nuclei. Phylogenetic trees showed a greater genetic diversity within AGs in tef-1? sequences than in ITS sequences. The AFLP analyses showed an even greater diversity among the strains demonstrating that the French strains of R. solani isolated from potatoes were not a clonal population. Moreover there was no relationship between the geographical origins of the strains or the variety from which they were isolated and their genetic diversity. PMID:21642342

Rhizoctonia root rot (Rhizoctoni solani K ü h n of sugar beet in province Vojvodina  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Sugar beet root rot appears regularly each year, but its intensity depends on agro ecological conditions. The predominant causers of root rot in Vojvodina are fungi from Fusarium genus and species Macrophomina phaseolina. Over the last couple of years, more intense occurrence of Rhizoctonia root rot has been observed. Rhizoctonia solani, the causal agent of root rot is present in sugar beet fields. During 2000-2005, on the territory of Vojvodina, the frequency of Rhizoctonia solani in phytopathological isolations from rotted sugar beet roots was between 0,0-18,2%. The intensity of the disease depends on localities, agro ecological conditions and genotypes. Symptoms of Rhizoctonia root rot were registered at some localities in all regions of Vojvodina: Srem, Banat and Ba?ka. The disease appearance is above all local. It occurs in small patches, on heavy, non-structured soil and on depressed wet parts of plots. Individual diseased plants can be found during July. Brown rot appears on sugar beet roots, with dried tissue on surface, which is present on the tail as well as on the middle part and the head of root. Tissues with described symptoms are deeper regarding the healthy part of root. On vertical root section, the necrotic changes are clearly visible comparing to tissue section without symptoms. The heavily infected tissue forms fissures on roots in most cases. Besides the above-mentioned symptoms on roots, the plant wilting and leaf handle necrosis as well as leaf dying are also observed. When rot spreads to the whole root head, plants quickly die.

The in vitro production of chitinases and ?-1,3-glucanases by Stachybotrys elegans, a mycoparasite of Rhizoctonia solani, was examined under various culture conditions, such as carbon and nitrogen sources, pH, and incubation period. Production of both enzymes was influenced by the carbon source incorporated into the medium and was stimulated by acidic pH and NaNO3. The activity of both enzymes was very low in culture filtrates from cells grown on glucose and sucrose compared with that detected on chitin (for chitinases) and cell wall fragments (for ?-1,3-glucanases). Protein electrophoresis revealed that, depending on the carbon source used, different isoforms of chitinases and ?-1,3-glucanases were detected. S. elegans culture filtrates, possessing ?-1,3-glucanase and chitinase activities, were capable of degrading R. solani mycelium. Images

Randomly Amplified Polymorphic DNA of Trichoderma isolates and antagonism against Rhizoctonia solani  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD procedure was used to examine the genetic variability among fourteen isolates of Trichoderma and their ability to antagonize Rhizoctonia solani using a dual-culture assay for correlation among RAPD products and their hardness to R. solani. Seven oligodeoxynucleotide primers were selected for the RAPD assays which resulted in 197 bands for 14 isolates of Trichoderma. The data were entered into a binary matrix and a similarity matrix was constructed using DICE similarity (SD index. A UPGMA cluster based on SD values was generated using NTSYS (Numerical Taxonomy System, Applied Biostatistics computer program. A mean coefficient of similarity obtained for pairwise comparisons among the most antagonics isolates was around 40%. The results presented here showed that the variability among the isolates of Trichoderma was very high. No relationship was found between the polymorphism showed by the isolates and their hardness, origin and substrata.

[The influence of cultural medium composition on the proteolytic enzyme secretion of fungus Rhizoctonia solani].  

Science.gov (United States)

It was shown that change of medium growth composition of photopathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani Kühn, especially accessible sources of nutrition, leads to change of both quantity of produced proteinases and their action specificity. The mineral source of nitrogen suppressed the fungus proteinase secretion on cultivation medium containing potato thermostable proteins but an organic source of nitrogen accelerated mycelium growth and increased proteinase secretion. On the basis of an analysis of a fungus extracellular proteinase substrate-specificity, it is established that the presence of thermostable proteins of a potato in the cultural liquid induces the secretion of trypsin-like proteinases mainly, and the addition of yeast extract to this growth medium induces the secretion of subtilisin-like ones, thus suppressing the trypsin-like enzymes production. This fact can indicate that mycelium of fungus R. solani loses pathogenic properties and becomes saprophytes when the growth medium was enriched by an organic source of nitrogen. PMID:20586290

Effect of Population Dynamics of Pseudomonas cepacia and Paecilomyces lilacinus on Colonization of Polyfoam Rooting Cubes by Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Suspensions of Pseudomonas cepacia (strain 5.5B) and Paecilomyces lilacinus (isolate 6.2F) were applied to polyfoam rooting cubes for control of stem rot of poinsettia caused by Rhizoctonia solani. The populations of antagonists and colonization of rooting cubes by R. solani were monitored during a 3-week period. Colonization of cubes by R. solani was reduced in cubes treated with P. cepacia, but the population of P. cepacia decreased by as much as 97% during the test period. Increased colonization by R. solani was correlated with a decline in population of P. cepacia. P. lilacinus was more persistent than P. cepacia in cubes, with only a 21% reduction observed during the 3-week period. Colonization of the P. lilacinus-treated cubes by R. solani was significantly less than colonization of infested controls. No correlation existed between population of P. lilacinus and colonization of cubes by R. solani. PMID:16349353

Postharvest dark skin spots in potato tubers are an oversuberization response to Rhizoctonia solani infection.  

Science.gov (United States)

Israeli farmers export 250,000 tons of potato tubers annually, ?40,000 tons of which are harvested early, before skin set. In recent years, there has been an increase in the occurrence of dark skin spots on early-harvested potato tubers ('Nicola') packed in large bags containing peat to retain moisture. The irregular necrotic spots form during storage and overseas transport. Characterization of the conditions required for symptom development indicated that bag temperature after packing is 11 to 13°C and it reaches the target temperature (8°C) only 25 days postharvest. This slow decrease in temperature may promote the establishment of pathogen infection. Isolates from typical lesions were identified as Rhizoctonia spp., and Koch's postulates were completed with 25 isolates by artificial inoculation performed at 13 to 14°C. Phylogenetic analysis, using the internal transcribed spacer sequences (ITS1 and ITS2) of rDNA genes, assigned three isolates to anastomosis group 3 of Rhizoctonia solani. Inoculation of wounded tubers with mycelium of these R. solani isolates resulted in an oversuberization response in the infected area. With isolate Rh17 of R. solani, expression of the suberin biosynthesis-related genes StKCS6 and CYP86A33 increased 6.8- and 3.4-fold, respectively, 24 h postinoculation, followed by a 2.9-fold increase in POP_A, a gene associated with wound-induced suberization, expression 48 h postinoculation, compared with the noninoculated tubers. We suggest that postharvest dark spot disease is an oversuberization response to R. solani of AG-3 infection that occurs prior to tuber skin set. PMID:21391824

Pseudomonas aeruginosa inducing rice resistance against Rhizoctonia solani: production of salicylic acid and peroxidases.  

Science.gov (United States)

Three isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa were used for seed treatment of rice; all showed plant growth promoting activity and induced systemic resistance in rice against Rhizoctonia solani G5 and increased seed yield. Production of salicylic acid (Sal) by P. aeruginosa both in vitro and in vivo was quantified with high performance liquid chromatography. All three isolates produced more Sal in King's B broth than in induced roots. Using a split root system, more Sal accumulated in root tissues of bacterized site than in distant roots on the opposite site of the root system after 1 d, but this difference decreased after 3 d. Sal concentration 0-200 g/L showed no inhibition of mycelial growth of R. solani in vitro, while at > or =300 g/L it inhibited it. P. aeruginosa-pretreated rice plants challenged inoculation with R. solani (as pathogen), an additional increase in the accumulation of peroxidase was observed. Three pathogenesis-related peroxidases in induced rice plants were detected; molar mass of these purified peroxidases was 28, 36 and 47 kDa. Purified peroxidase showed antifungal activity against phytopathogenic fungi R. solani, Pyricularia oryzae and Helminthosporium oryzae. PMID:17176755

Over-expression of a protein kinase gene enhances the defense of tobacco against Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

To identify Nicotiana tabacum genes involved in resistance and susceptibility to Rhizoctonia solani, suppression subtractive hybridization was used to generate a cDNA library from transcripts that are differentially expressed during a compatible and incompatible interaction. This allowed the isolation of a protein kinase cDNA that was down-regulated during a compatible and up-regulated during an incompatible interaction. Quantitative RT-PCR analysis of this gene confirmed the differential expression patterns between the compatible and incompatible interactions. Over-expression of this gene in tobacco enhanced the resistance to damping-off produced by an aggressive R. solani strain. Furthermore, silencing of this protein kinase gene reduced the resistance to a non-aggressive R. solani strain. A set of reported tobacco-resistant genes were also evaluated in tobacco plants over-expressing and silencing the protein kinase cDNA. Several genes previously associated with resistance in tobacco, like manganese superoxide dismutase, Hsr203J, chitinases and phenylalanine ammonia-lyase, were up-regulated in tobacco plants over-expressing the protein kinase cDNA. Potentially, the protein kinase gene could be used to engineer resistance to R. solani in tobacco cultivars susceptible to this important pathogen. PMID:20004236

Biological Control of Potato Isolate of Rhizoctonia solani by Streptomyces olivaceus Strain 115  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available This is the first report of antifungal activity of Iranian actinomycete isolates against Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn AG-3 (Teleomorph: Thanatephorus cucumeris [(Frank Donk]. Biological control offers an environmentally friendly alternative to the use of antimicrobials for controlling plant diseases. A collection of about 200 actinomycete strains was screened for the ability to produce metabolites that inhibit R. solani growth in vitro. The Streptomyces olivaceus strain 115 showed strong in vitro antagonistic activity against R. solani in agar disc and Well-diffusion methods by producing extracellular antifungal metabolites. The strain No. 115 was propagated in submerged cultures and active crude was prepared upon which some biological characterization performed. The active metabolite(s is polar, soluble in H2O and methanol but insoluble in chloroform, dichloromethane or hexane. Thermal inactivation point of active phase of S. olivaceus strain 115 was 80?C. Antifungal active phase of S. olivaceus strain 115 tolerate range of pH (6-9. Antifungal gene from strain 115 may be a useful candidate for genetic engineering of agriculturally important crop for increased tolerance against R. solani.

The supernatant of Bacillus pumilus SQR-N43 has antifungal activity towards Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

For clarification of the antagonistic mechanism of Bacillus pumilus SQR-N43 (N43) against Rhizoctonia solani Q1, production of antibiotics by N43 was determined, and the effect of the antibiotics on the pathogen mycelium was microscopically observed. Further more, the control efficiencies of the antifungal compounds on damping-off disease were investigated. The results obtained are listed as follows: N43 produced antibiotic substances towards R. solani Q1 at logarithmic growth phase. The antibiotics caused hyphal deformation and enlargement of cytoplasmic vacuoles in R. solani Q1 mycelia. 70% saturation of ammonium sulfate made a complete precipitation of the antibiotics in culture broth. When treated with protease K and trypsase, the activities of antibiotics were decreased by 79% and 53%, respectively, compared with control. The antibiotics were sensitive to high temperature and were alkaline stable. The molecular weights of the substances were about 500-1000 Da. The bio-control efficiencies of the antibiotics had no significant difference with that of N43 cell suspension. It is a first report that B. pumilus strain produced oligopeptides which had inhibitory effect on R. solani Q1 at logarithmic growth phase. PMID:23417338

Differential expression of Phaseolus vulgaris genes induced during the interaction with Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is the most important grain legume for direct human consumption; however, bean production is affected by several diseases such as Rhizoctonia root rot. Few bean cultivars have been identified that effectively resist the attack of this fungus. Herein, we used the P. vulgaris Pv-2094 landrace, which is less susceptible to Rhizoctonia root rot, for the construction of a suppressive subtractive hybridization cDNA library in order to isolate plant defense-related genes. Total RNAs obtained after 8 and 16 h from inoculated and non-inoculated roots with R. solani Kühn, were used as the source of the "tester" and the "driver" samples, respectively. A total of 136 unigenes were obtained and classified into 12 functional categories. Six unigenes were selected to analyze for differential expression by qRT-PCR, including a receptor-like kinase (PvRK20-1), an acid phosphatase associated to defense (PA), a pathogenesis related protein (PR1), an ethylene responsive factor (ERF), a polygalacturonase inhibitor protein (PGIP), and an alpha-dioxygenase (?-DOX). These genes were found to be differentially expressed in a time-dependent manner in bean roots during the interaction with R. solani. Data generated from this study will contribute to the understanding of the molecular mechanisms associated with plant defense against root rot in common bean. PMID:21416283

Effect of Population Dynamics of Pseudomonas cepacia and Paecilomyces lilacinus on Colonization of Polyfoam Rooting Cubes by Rhizoctonia solani  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Suspensions of Pseudomonas cepacia (strain 5.5B) and Paecilomyces lilacinus (isolate 6.2F) were applied to polyfoam rooting cubes for control of stem rot of poinsettia caused by Rhizoctonia solani. The populations of antagonists and colonization of rooting cubes by R. solani were monitored during a 3-week period. Colonization of cubes by R. solani was reduced in cubes treated with P. cepacia, but the population of P. cepacia decreased by as much as 97% during the test period. Increased coloni...

DNA Microsatellite Analysis of Kenyan Isolates of Rhizoctonia solani from Common Bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Seven hundred and fifty bean plant samples with root rot symptoms were collected from farmers' fields during two surreys carried out in Embu district, Kenya. Various fungal pathogens were isolated in the laboratory from these samples; among them were 50 isolates of Rhizoctonia solani, which were subjected to pathogenicity tests in a glasshouse. Thirty-six isolates of R. solani obtained from beans with root rots were subjected to DNA microsatellite analysis. Five isolates of R. solani that cause black scarf of potatoes (Solanum tuberosum L. were also analysed alongside those from the beans. A total of 50 alleles were detected when six microsatellite loci were typed in the 41 samples, with the mean of 8.33 and a range of 3 at locus RB23 to 19 at locus AF513014. The smallest allele size was 129 basepair at locus RE102 and the largest was 297 basepair at locus AY212027. Microsatellite analysis showed a moderate variation among the isolates from different agro-ecological zones and administrative boundaries (divisions. Phylogenetic analysis revealed 3 major clusters within the population of 41 isolates of R. solani from Kenya. Clusters 1, 2 and 3 had 15, 10 and 75% isolates, respectively. However, cluster 3 had 4 sub-clusters and cluster 1 had 2 sub-clusters, while cluster 2 did not have a sub-cluster. There was no relationship between microsatellites and geographical origin of the isolates. This is the first study on the genetic diversity of R. solani using DNA microsatellite analysis in Kenya.

Effects of Meloidogyne spp. and Rhizoctonia solani on the Growth of Grapevine Rootings  

Science.gov (United States)

A disease complex involving Meloidogyne incognita and Rhizoctonia solani was associated with stunting of grapevines in a field nursery. Nematode reproduction was occurring on both susceptible and resistant cultivars, and pot experiments were conducted to determine the virulence of this M. incognita population, and of M. javanica and M. hapla populations, to V. vinifera cv. Colombard (susceptible) and to V. champinii cv. Ramsey (regarded locally as highly resistant). The virulence of R. solani isolates obtained from roots of diseased grapevines also was determined both alone and in combination with M. incognita. Ramsey was susceptible to M. incognita (reproduction ratio 9.8 to 18.4 in a shadehouse and heated glasshouse, respectively) but was resistant to M. javanica and M. hapla. Colombard was susceptible to M. incognita (reproduction ratio 24.3 and 41.3, respectively) and M. javanica. Shoot growth was suppressed (by 35%) by M. incognita and, to a lesser extent, by M. hapla. Colombard roots were more severely galled than Ramsey roots by all three species, and nematode reproduction was higher on Colombard. Isolates of R. solani assigned to putative anastomosis groups 2-1 and 4, and an unidentified isolate, colonized and induced rotting of grapevine roots. Ramsey was more susceptible to root rotting than Colombard. Shoot growth was inhibited by up to 15% by several AG 4 isolates and by 20% by the AG 2-1 isolate. AG 4 isolates varied in their virulence. Root rotting was higher when grapevines were inoculated with both M. incognita and R. solani and was highest when nematode inoculation preceded the fungus. Shoot weights were lower when vines were inoculated with the nematode 13 days before the fungus compared with inoculation with both the nematode and the fungus on the same day. It was concluded that both the M. incognita population and some R. solani isolates were virulent against both Colombard and Ramsey, and that measures to prevent spread in nursery stock were therefore important.

Diversidad genética de aislados de Rhizoctonia solani (Kuhn) de chile en México / Genetic diversity of Rhizoctonia solani isolates (Kuhn) from pepper in Mexico  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Mexico | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish Una de las principales limitantes para la producción de chile son los hongos patógenos causantes de la enfermedad conocida como "marchitez del chile" o "secadera". Esta enfermedad puede ser devastadora cuando las condiciones climáticas son favorables para el patógeno. A pesar de que se han intentado [...] diferentes medios de control (químicos y culturales) ninguno ha tenido éxito. Una alternativa para su control es producir germoplasma resistente, sin embargo para poder establecer un programa de mejoramiento efectivo es necesario conocer la distribución y diversidad genética de los patógenos involucrados, particularmente de Rhizoctonia solani, que por su ubicuidad representa un peligro potencial en todas las zonas productoras. Por ello el objetivo fue caracterizar a R. solani en las zona Centro Norte de México y determinar su diversidad genética. Para cumplir con este objetivo se consideraron los estados de Chihuahua, Durango, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosí, Colima, Querétaro y Guanajuato donde en 2009 se colectaron plantas adultas de Chile con síntomas de marchitez, se aisló al hongo y se encontró una incidencia del 33%, encontrándose tanto en tallo como en raíz. Las células miceliales fueron multinucleadas, características de las cepas patogénicas. Las pruebas de anastomosis demostaron la presencia en México de los grupos GA4, GA-2.1, GA-IIB, GA-2IV, GA7, GA11, GA12 y GA13. La diversidad genética de este hongo fue muy alta, de tal manera que las relaciones demostradas por la construcción de dendrogramas no muestran tendencias homogéneas pues los principales grupos formados contienen elementos de todos los estados.

This disease can be devastating when weather conditions are favorable for the pathogen. Although different means of control (chemical and cultural) have benn use [...] d but none has been successful. An alternative to control is to produce resistant germplasm, however in order to establish an effective breeding program is necessary to know the distribution and genetic diversity of the pathogens involved, particularly Rhizoctonia solani, which by its ubiquity represents a potential danger in all producing areas. Thus, the objective was to characterize R. solani in North Central area from Mexico and determine its genetic diversity. To achieve with this goal are considered the states of Chihuahua, Durango, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosi, Colima, Queretaro and Guanajuato where in 2009 were collected adult plants of pepper with pepper blight symptoms, the fungus was isolated and found an incidence of 33%, finding it in both stem and root. Mycelial cells were multinucleated, a characteristic from pathogenic strains. The anastomosis testing showed that in Mexico are present the groups GA4, GA-2. 1, GA-IIB, GA-2IV, GA7, GA11, GA12 and GA13. The genetic diversity of this fungus was very high, so that the relationships demonstrated by the construction of dendrogram show no homogeneous trends so as the main groups formed contain elements of all states.

The population genetic structure of Rhizoctonia solani AG-3PT from potato in the Colombian Andes.  

Science.gov (United States)

The soilborne fungus Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group 3 (AG-3PT) is a globally important potato pathogen. However, little is known about the population genetic processes affecting field populations of R. solani AG-3PT, especially in the South American Colombian Andes, which is near the center of diversity of the two most common groups of cultivated potato, Solanum tuberosum and S. phureja. We analyzed the genetic structure of 15 populations of R. solani AG-3PT infecting potato in Colombia using 11 simple-sequence repeat (SSR) markers. In total, 288 different multilocus genotypes were identified among 349 fungal isolates. Clonal fractions within field populations were 7 to 33%. RST statistics indicated a very low level of population differentiation overall, consistent with high contemporary gene flow, though moderate differentiation was found for the most distant southern populations. Genotype flow was also detected, with the most common genotype found widely distributed among field populations. All populations showed evidence of a mixed reproductive mode, including both asexual and sexual reproduction, but two populations displayed evidence of inbreeding. PMID:23464900

Genetic Variability in Rhizoctonia solani Isolated from Vitis vinifera Based on Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Problem statement: Rhizoctonia solani is a potential grapevine pathogen. In order to develop effective methods of control, it is necessary to document its genetic diversity. Approach: The objective of this study was to analyze the genetic variability of R. solani isolated from the rhizosphere of ungrafted V. vinifera var. perlette seedless planted in Sonora, Mexico using Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP. Results: In the selective amplification using eight primer combinations we obtained a total of 446 AFLP markers with a 100% polymorphism. Out of 41 isolates, 36 different AFLP patterns were observed and five were replicates of the same pattern. The dendrogram shows inter- and intrapopulation similarity indexes of 0.26, 0.98 and 0.31, 0.98, respectively. Six groups emerged from the principal components analysis, five of which were clearly defined, while the other one was spread out. Conclusion: We conclude that R. solani growing in Sonoran vineyards shows a high degree of genetic variability, even under similar environmental conditions.

Development of artificial conidia for ecological studies of Rhizoctonia solani in soil.  

Science.gov (United States)

Artificial conidia of Rhizoctonia solani were developed by releasing protoplasts from young mycelia with lytic enzymes and by inducing cell wall formation in stabilizer solution. Conidia produced in this way were spherical with sizes ranging from 10 to 20?m in diameter. Artificial conidia were sensitive to soil fungistasis. Young hyphae originated from artificial conidia were also sensitive to fungistasis and mycolysis in soils. These results demonstrate that the previously reported insensitivity of R. solani to fungistasis and mycolysis in soils is due to special ability of propagules used rather than the inherited nature of the organism. Germination rates of artificial conidia on soils were inversely correlated with the amount of fungicide Flutolanil added. When germination of artificial conidia was used to detect suppressive soils, 3 out of 30 soil samples collected from different parts of Taiwan were suppressive to R. solani and all these suppressive soils were low in pH. Using artificial conidia for assay of fungicide activity in soil and detection of suppressive soils has the advantages of being fast and precise in comparison with relative hyphal growth. However, preparation of artificial conidia at this stage is tedious and time-consuming. PMID:20713193

Triallelic SNP-mediated genotyping of regenerated protoplasts of the heterokaryotic fungus Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

The aneuploid and heterokaryotic nuclear condition of the soil fungus Rhizoctonia solani have provided challenges in obtaining a complete genome sequence. To better aid in the assembly and annotation process, a protoplast and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP)-based method was developed to identify regenerated protoplasts with a reduced nuclear genome. Protocol optimization experiments showed that enzymatic digestion of mycelium from a 24 h culture of R. solani increased the proportion of protoplasts with a diameter of ?7.5 ?m and 1-4 nuclei. To determine whether strains regenerated from protoplasts with a reduced number of nuclei were genetically different from the parental strain, triallelic SNPs identified from variance records of the genomic DNA sequence reads of R. solani were used in PCR-based genotyping assays. Results from 16 of the 24 SNP-based PCR assays provided evidence that one of the three alleles was missing in the 11 regenerated protoplast strains, suggesting that these strains represent a reduced genomic complement of the parental strain. The protoplast and triallelic SNP-based method used in this study may be useful in strain development and analysis of other basidiomycete fungi with complex nuclear genomes. PMID:22321572

Riboflavin induces resistance in rice against Rhizoctonia solani via jasmonate-mediated priming of phenylpropanoid pathway.  

Science.gov (United States)

Vitamins are plant growth regulators and activators of defense responses against pathogens. The cytomolecular mechanisms involved in the induction of resistance by chemicals especially vitamins on monocotyledonous plants are largely unknown. Here, we show that riboflavin, which acts as a defense activator in rice against economically important sheath blight caused by Rhizoctonia solani, primed the expression of lipoxygenase (LOX) as a key gene in octadecanoid pathway, and enhanced lignification. Exogenous jasmonic acid (JA) application on rice induces resistance against R. solani in a manner similar to riboflavin. Application of jasmonate-deficient rice mutant hebiba and using a LOX inhibitor revealed the main role of octadecanoid pathway in riboflavin-induced resistance (IR). In riboflavin-treated inoculated plants, upregulation of phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) expression, as a major marker of phenylpropanoid pathway, was detected downstream of LOX upregulation. Co-application of riboflavin and 5, 8, 11, 14-eicosatetraynoic acid (ETYA) on rice leaves revealed no upregulation of PAL and no priming in lignification. Furthermore, lower levels of PAL transcripts and lignin were detected in hebiba compared with control. These findings indicate the role of octadecanoid pathway in the induction of phenylpropanoid metabolism leading to lignification as a novel mechanism of riboflavin-IR in Oryza sativa-R. solani pathosystem.

Chitosan-cinnamon beads enhance suppressive activity against Rhizoctonia solani and Meloidogyne incognita in vitro.  

Science.gov (United States)

A novel chitosan-cinnamon bead carrier was prepared in this study. Chitosan was mixed with cinnamon powder (CP) and cinnamon extract (CE) to obtain chitosan-cinnamon powder (CCP) beads and chitosan-cinnamon extracted (CCE) beads, respectively. The potential antifungal and nematicidal activities of CCP and CCE were investigated against Rhizoctonia solani and Meloidogyne incognita in vitro. Relative antifungal activity of the CCP (5% CP) bead-treated R. solani was 30.9 and 23.9% after 1 and 2 day incubations, respectively. Relative antifungal activity of the CCE (0.5% CE) bead-treated R. solani was 4.3, 3.0 and 4.2% after 1, 2 and 3 days of incubation. Inhibition of hatch by CCP beads with CP of 5% was 78.8%. Inhibition of hatch by CCE beads with CE of 0.5% was 82.0%. J2 mortality following the CCP (5% CP) and CCE (0.5% CE) bead treatments was 85.0 and 95.8%, respectively against M. incognita after 48 h incubations. PMID:24417978

Diversity of Rhizoctonia solani associated with pulse crops in different agro-ecological regions of India.  

Science.gov (United States)

Four hundred seventy Rhizoctonia solani isolates from different leguminous hosts originating from 16 agro-ecological regions of India covering 21 states and 72 districts were collected. The disease incidence caused by R. solani varied from 6.8 to 22.2 % in the areas surveyed. Deccan plateau and central highlands, hot sub-humid ecoregion followed by northern plain and central highlands and hot semi-arid ecoregion showed the highest disease incidence. R. solani isolates were highly variable in growth diameter, number, size and pattern of sclerotia formation as well as hyphal width. The isolates obtained from aerial part of the infected plants showing web blight symptoms produced sclerotia of 1-2 mm in size whereas, the isolates obtained from infected root of the plants showing wet root rot symptoms produced microsclerotia (high level of genetic similarity among isolates representing different AGs, crops and regions. ITS groups did not correspond to the morphological characters. The sequence data from this article has been deposited with NCBI data libraries with JF701707 to JF701795 accession numbers.

Elucidating the role of the phenylacetic acid metabolic complex in the pathogenic activity of Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group 3.  

Science.gov (United States)

The soil fungus Rhizoctonia solani produces phytotoxic phenylacetic acid (PAA) and hydroxy (OH-) and methoxy (MeO-) derivatives of PAA. However, limited information is available on the specific role that these compounds play in the development of Rhizoctonia disease symptoms and concentration(s) required to induce a host response. Reports that PAA inhibits the growth of R. solani conflict with the established ability of the fungus to produce and metabolize PAA. Experiments were conducted to clarify the role of the PAA metabolic complex in Rhizoctonia disease. In this study the concentration of PAA and derivatives required to induce tomato root necrosis and stem canker, in the absence of the fungus, and the concentration that inhibits mycelial growth of R. solani were determined. The effect of exogenous PAA and derivatives of PAA on tomato seedling growth also was investigated. Growth of tomato seedlings in medium containing 0.1-7.5 mM PAA and derivatives induced necrosis of up to 85% of root system. Canker development resulted from injection of tomato seedling stems with 7.5 mM PAA, 3-OH-PAA, or 3-MeO-PAA. PAA in the growth medium reduced R. solani biomass, with 50% reduction observed at 7.5 mM. PAA, and derivatives were quantified from the culture medium of 14 isolates of R. solani belonging to three distinct anastomosis groups by GC-MS. The quantities ranged from below the limit of detection to 678 nM, below the concentrations experimentally determined to be phytotoxic. Correlation analyses revealed that isolates of R. solani that produced high PAA and derivatives in vitro also caused high mortality on tomato seedlings. The results of this investigation add to the body of evidence that the PAA metabolic complex is involved in Rhizoctonia disease development but do not indicate that production of these compounds is the primary or the only determinant of pathogenicity.

Biocontrol of Rhizoctonia solani, the causal agent of bean damping-off by fluorescent pseudomonads.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizosphere bacteria belonging to the fluorescent pseudomonads are receiving increasing attention for the protection of plants against soil-borne fungal pathogens. Among these pathogens, Rhizoctonia solani, the causal agent of bean damping- off is very important in bean fields of Iran. In this study, the antagonistic activity of 46 isolates of fluorescent pseudomonads (isolated from different area of Iran) and Pseudomonas fluorescens strain CHA0 investigated against one isolate of R. solani. About 64% of isolates revealed antagonistic activity against R. solani. Production of antifungal metabolites such as HCN, siderophore and protease was evaluated. The results showed that 97.8%, 17% and 78% of isolates produced siderophore, HCN and protease respectively. There was no significant correlation between antagonistic activity and production of these metabolites. Isolates P-5, P-10 and P-32 with strain CHA0 were selected in order to investigate involvement of siderophore, volatile metabolites (HCN), and non-volatile metabolites in reducing mycelial growth of R. olani. Isolate P-5 showed much more inhibitory effect by production of volatile metabolites and siderophore. Non-volatile metabolites in isolates P-32 and P-5 completely inhibited mycelial growth of the fungus. After the primary labrotory tests, isolates P-14, P-35, P-30, P-5 and strain CHA0 were selected for in vivo experiments. These selected isolates with benomyl fungicide were used as seed coating and soil drenching in sterile soil under greenhouse condition. The result indicated that in seed treatment method, isolates P-30 by 66% had the most effect in disease reduction while in soil treatment method, strain CHAO by 60% had the most effect, such that this two isolates showed significant differences in comparison with plants inoculated with R. solani inoculums.

Observou-se que o grau de similaridade das amostras que apresentaram melhor desempenho antagônico foi bastante baixo, em torno de 40%. Os resultados demonstraram que a variabilidade entre os isolados de Trichoderma é muito alta. Aparentemente não foi demonstrada nenhuma relação entre o perfil de RAPD obtido e o nível de antagonismo dos isolados de Trichoderma nem agrupamento em função da origem dos isolados ou substrato. Abstract in english Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) procedure was used to examine the genetic variability among fourteen isolates of Trichoderma and their ability to antagonize Rhizoctonia solani using a dual-culture assay for correlation among RAPD products and their hardness to R. solani. Seven oligodeoxynucl [...] eotide primers were selected for the RAPD assays which resulted in 197 bands for 14 isolates of Trichoderma. The data were entered into a binary matrix and a similarity matrix was constructed using DICE similarity (SD) index. A UPGMA cluster based on SD values was generated using NTSYS (Numerical Taxonomy System, Applied Biostatistics) computer program. A mean coefficient of similarity obtained for pairwise comparisons among the most antagonics isolates was around 40%. The results presented here showed that the variability among the isolates of Trichoderma was very high. No relationship was found between the polymorphism showed by the isolates and their hardness, origin and substrata.

Full Text Available Phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB metabolites are organic acids, phosphomonoesterase enzyme (alkaline phosphatase and antibiotic, which is able to dissolve insoluble phosphate. Phosphate solubilizing bacteria used in this study was expected to suppress Rhizoctonia solani attacks. This experiment was aimed at (1 identifiying and quantifying PSB metabolites, and (2 examining their capability as biocontrol agent for Rhizoctonia solani in vitro and hydroponics soybean. This study was conducted in three stages. The first stage of this study was culturing two PSB isolates (Pseudomonas putida 27.4B and Pseudomonas diminuta in the Pikovskaya medium to analyze their metabolites. The second and third stage of this study was testing the antagonist of two bacteria to suppressed R. solani activity, which was conducted in vitro, and in hydroponics medium soybean as indicator plant. The results showed that P. putida 27.4B and P. diminuta produced organic acids i.e.: citrate, formic, succinic, acetic, propionate, butyrate, and oxalate. The totals of organic acids from each bacterium were 70,3 mg.kg-1 and 61,9 mg.kg-1. Production of alkaline phosphatase enzyme in Pikovskaya medium of P. Putida 27.4B was 11,71 ìg pNP .mL-1.h-1 and P. diminuta was 24,04 ìg pNP.mL-1.h-1. Concentration of this enzyme in soil medium was higher than that in Pikovskaya medium with 26,27 ìg pNP.g-1.h-1 and 39,03 ìg pNP.g-1.h-1 respectively. This study also showed that total concentration of antibiotics (tetracycline, oxitetracycline and penicillin produced by the PSB, were 3,2 ìg.mL-1 (P. putida 27.4B and 10,96 ìg.m1-1 (P. diminuta, respectively. The results from second stage of this study showed that by using in vitro, the reduced growth of R. solani was observed 58,35% with P. putida 27.4B and 41,96% with P. diminuta. In addition, inoculations of PSB in hydroponics medium reduced the fungal pathogenesis from 10,71% to 21,42% of pre and post emergence damping-off. Visually, the symptom of pathogen attack appeared within the period of 2 untill 14 days after infection.

Population Dynamics of Sugar Beets, Rhizoctonia solani, and Laetisaria arvalis: Responses of a Host, Plant Pathogen, and Hyperparasite to Perturbation in the Field †  

Digital Repository Infrastructure Vision for European Research (DRIVER)

Rhizoctonia solani causes crown rot of sugar beets, a severe disease that has destroyed up to 60% of the plants in a test field in western Nebraska. Laetisaria arvalis, a natural hyperparasite of Rhizoctonia spp., was isolated from fields in western Nebraska. To test for the potential for biological control of R. solani, in November 1980 (following harvest) we applied various combinations of a nematicide (Telone II; Dow Chemical Co.), a nutrition source (sugar beet pulp), and an inoculum of L...

Full Text Available Áreas de uma microbacia sem a incidência de doenças causadas por Rhizoctonia solani GA 4 foram agrupadas estatisticamente, pelo método de Ward, com relação à supressividade dos solos ao patógeno, avaliada pela taxa de crescimento micelial. Entre os grupos formados, foi definido um gradiente de supressividade. A relação entre gradientes de supressividade e tipos de cobertura vegetal foi descrita com auxílio da análise de correspondências múltiplas, sendo que, de modo geral, o pasto e o pousio, seguidos da mata, tornaram os solos mais supressivos, ao passo que a cana-de-açúcar (Saccharum officinarum, o milho (Zea mays , o café (Coffea arabica e o solo arado tornaram os solos mais conducentes. Porém, os resultados mostraram que outros fatores, além da cobertura vegetal, podem estar afetando a supressividade. Um tratamento biocida (fumigação dos solos mais supressivos promoveu um maior incremento da taxa de crescimento do patógeno do que o observado com solos mais conducentes.

Age-Dependent Metabolic Differences in Peripheral Hyphae of Rhizoctonia solani  

Science.gov (United States)

Peripheral hyphae were separated from the remaining thallus of Rhizoctonia solani in exponential and stationary phases of growth. The QO2 in whole cells of peripheral hyphae from young fungal colonies was on the average 2.6 times and the protein content 1.6 times greater than in peripheral hyphae from old fungal colonies. The overall rate of amino acid uptake was less in old than in young fungal colonies. In a polyuridylic acid-polyphenylalanine incorporating system, the two kinds of peripheral hyphae required ribosomes, supernatant fraction, polyuridylic acid, soluble ribonucleic acid, adenosine triphosphate, and pyruvate kinase. The rate of polyphenylalanine synthesis in old fungal colonies was slower than in the young fungal colonies. The ribosomes and supernatant fraction of the young and old fungal colonies were interchangeable and active. The factor responsible for deficient protein synthesis in old fungal colonies appears to be in the soluble fraction of the mycelium.

Vesicle trafficking via the Spitzenkörper during hyphal tip growth in Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Growing hyphae of Rhizoctonia solani were stained with the endocytic marker dye FM4-64 and imaged by confocal microscopy. Staining of the plasma membrane was followed by labeling of organelles in the cytoplasm (after ~1 min) and of the Spitzenkörper (Spk; after ~2 min). Fluorescence recovery after photobleaching (FRAP) of the stained Spk demonstrated the vectorial flow of secretory vesicles from the apical cytoplasm to the Spk. This flux was modelled in a two-compartment model. The turnover time of the vesicles of the Spk was estimated to be 1.3-2.5 min. These results are roughly consistent with the expected flux of vesicles through the Spk based on the number of secretory vesicles within the Spk and the number of secretory vesicles that would be necessary to fuse with the apical plasma membrane to maintain hyphal extension rates. These results suggest that membrane retrieval via endocytosis is not as significant as previously suggested. PMID:23334442

Soil Pseudomonas community structure and its antagonism towards Rhizoctonia solani under the stress of acetochlor.  

Science.gov (United States)

In a microcosm experiment, the amplified ribosomal DNA restriction analysis was adopted to investigate the Pseudomonas community structure in soils applied with different concentrations (0, 50, 150, and 250 mg/kg) of acetochlor, and an in vitro assay was made to examine the antagonistic activity of isolated Pseudomonas strains acting on soil-borne pathogen Rhizoctonia solani. The results showed that acetochlor application changed the community structure of Pseudomonas in aquic brown soil. The diversity of Pseudomonas and the amount of isolated Pseudomonas strains with antagonistic activity decreased with an increasing acetochlor concentration, and the toxic effect of acetochlor reached to a steady level at 150-250 mg/kg.

Influence of herbicides on root rot of French beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.), caused by Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

The effects of four herbicides, namely bromacil, diuron, nitrofen, and alachlor, at 0.04 and 0.02% concentrations in vitro and nitrofen and alachlor at two concentrations under field conditions, were studied against root rot of French beans, caused by Rhizoctonia solani. Diuron at 0.04% concentration completely checked the growth of R. solani in in vitro incubation up to 72 hours. Alachlor was highly effective at both the concentrations, followed by nitrofen and bromacil. In field trials in 1977 and 1978, pre-inoculation application of both the herbicides was less effective than post-inoculation application. Pre-emergence mortality, following post-inoculation application of nitrofen and alachlor, varied in the two trials from 5.7 to 11.4% and 5.3 to 7.6%. respectively, as compared to 16.6 to 19.3% in untreated plots. Post-emergence mortality in post-inoculation application of nitrofen and alachlor varied from 3.9 to 9.5 and 5.3 to 12.2, respectively, whereas in untreated plots it was 13.8 to 21.9%. Yield of green pods was also significantly higher in post-inoculation application than in untreated control. PMID:6649952

The identification and characterization of four laccases from the plant pathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Four distinct laccase genes, lcc1, lcc2, lcc3 and lcc4, have been identified in the fungus Rhizoctonia solani. Both cDNA and genomic copies of these genes were isolated and characterized. Hybridization analyses indicate that each of the four laccase genes is present in a single copy in the genome. The R. solani laccases can be divided into two groups based on their protein size, intron/exon organization, and transcriptional regulation. Three of these enzymes have been expressed in the fungus Aspergillus oryzae. Two of the recombinant laccases, r-lcc1 and r-lcc4, as well as the native lcc4 enzyme were purified and characterized. The purified proteins are homodimeric, comprised of two subunits of approximately 66kDa for lcc4 and 50-100kDa for the recombinant lcc1 protein. These laccases have spectral properties that are consistent with other blue copper proteins. With syringaldazine as a substrate, lcc4 has optimal activity at pH7, whereas lcc1 has optimal activity at pH6. PMID:8598061

Application of Fluorescent Pseudomonads in Biological Control of Rhizoctonia solani , Causal Agent of Colza  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available   Two hundred fifty seven bacterial isolates were collected from colza root and rhizosphere in Golestan, Mazandaran, Guilan and Tehran provinces. Antagonistic effect of bacterial isolates on Rhizoctonia solani, the causal agent of colza damping off, was studied using dual culture method. The results showed that, 60 isolates had the ability to inhibit the growth of R. solani on PDA medium. On the basis of the biochemical, physiological and morphological tests, isolates P1, P2 and P3 were identified as Pseudomonas fluorescens. Biocontrol mechanism studies showed that isolates produced antibiotics and volatile metabolites prevented the mycelial growth of the fungus. The isolates produced some of antimicrobial metabolites including hydrogen cyanide, protease and siderophore. Isolate P3 was more effective to inhibit the growth of the fungus in-vitro. The effect of isolates on disease reduction in comparison with control was significantly different. None of the isolates were able to prevent disease occurrence completely. Isolates applied as soil treatment had a significantly higher disease control as compared to seed treatment method. Isolate P3 had considerable effect on reduction disease in the greenhouse conditions. All isolates were capable of colonizing canola roots and so increased canola growth in free-causal agent conditions.

Entomotoxic effects of fungal lectin from Rhizoctonia solani towards Spodoptera littoralis.  

Science.gov (United States)

The effects of the Rhizoctonia solani lectin (RSA) on the growth, development and survival of an economically important caterpillar in agriculture and horticulture, the cotton leafworm, Spodoptera littoralis were studied. The high lectin concentration present in the sclerotes of the soil pathogen R. solani allowed the purification of large amounts of the pure lectin for feeding experiments with cotton leafworm. Rearing of insects on a diet containing different concentrations of RSA exerted a strong effect on the larval weight gain. This effect was visible at the lowest concentration of 0.1 % RSA at day 8 and day 11. Interestingly with 1 % RSA, there was a dramatic reduction in larval weight of 89 % at the end of L6 which was followed by a high mortality rate of 82 % in the treated larvae. Furthermore, the other developmental stages of pupation and adult formation were also affected. In addition, the data demonstrated that the combination of RSA with Bt toxin yielded synergistic effects. For instance, 0.03 % RSA+0.005 % Bt toxin caused reduced growth rate and higher mortalities. These findings suggest that RSA is an interesting tool that can be used for bioengineering insect resistance in important agronomical crops. PMID:20965059

Mechanism for mercury tolerance in fungi. [Aspergillus niger; Rhizoctonia solani; Pythium ultimum  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Aspergillus niger was protected from mercury (Hg) poisoning by sulfhydryl (SH) compounds (glutathione and cysteine) in culture experiments, whereas Rhizoctonia solani and Pythium ultimum were not protected. Two- to 30-day-old mycelium of A. niger was found to be more tolerant to Hg than either younger or older mycelia. Mycelia of the other fungi were sensitive regardless of age. Mercury tolerance of A. niger mycelium was altered when sulfur nutrition was modified; it was greater after growth on a substrate containing reduced sulfur than after growth on one containing sulfate. The Hg tolerance of A. niger mycelium appears to be due to a pool of intracellular SH that is free of protein and that protects enzyme systems by forming complexes with Hg as it is taken up by the thallus. Potato-dextrose broth-grown mats of A. niger contained about 100 ..mu..g of SH/g of dry mycelia after 36 hr and after 5 days. R.. solani had about 9 ..mu..g of SH/g of mycelia after 5 days; a measurable amount was not recovered from P. ultimum. 20 references, 1 figure, 2 tables.

Biocontrol of Rhizoctonia solani Damping-Off of Tomato with Bacillus subtilis RB14  

Science.gov (United States)

Bacillus subtilis RB14, which showed antibiotic activities against several phytopathogens in vitro by producing the antibiotics iturin A and surfactin, was subjected to a pot test to investigate its ability to suppress damping-off of tomato seedlings caused by Rhizoctonia solani. To facilitate recovery from soil, B. subtilis RB14-C, a spontaneous streptomycin-resistant mutant of RB14, was used. Damping-off was suppressed when the culture broth, cell suspension, or cell-free culture broth of RB14-C was inoculated into soil. Iturin A and surfactin were recovered from the soils inoculated with the cell suspension of RB14-C, confirming that RB14-C produced them in soil. The gene lpa-14, which was cloned from RB14 and required for the production of both antibiotics, was mutated in RB14-C, and a mutant, R(Delta)1, was constructed. The level of disease suppressibility of R(Delta)1 was low, but R(Delta)1(pC115), a transformant of R(Delta)1 with the plasmid pC115 carrying lpa-14, was restored in suppressibility. These results show that the antibiotics iturin A and surfactin produced by RB14 play a major role in the suppression of damping-off caused by R. solani. RB14-C, R(Delta)1, and R(Delta)1(pC115) persisted in soil during the experimental period and were recovered from the soil, mostly as spores.

Isolation and characterization of siderophore producing antagonistic rhizobacteria against Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Plant protection through siderophore producing rhizobacteria (SPR) has emerged as a sustainable approach for crop health management. In present study, 220 bacteria isolated from tomato rhizosphere were screened for in vitro antagonistic activity against Rhizoctonia solani AG-4. Nine potent antagonistic strains viz., Alcaligenes sp. (MUN1, MB21, and MPF37), Enterobacter sp. (MPM1), Pseudomonas sp. (M10A and MB65), P. aeruginosa (MPF14 and MB123) and P. fluorescens (MPF47) were identified on the basis of physiological characters and 16S rDNA sequencing. These strains were able to produce hydrolytic enzymes, hydrogen cyanide, indole acetic acid, although, only few strains were able to solubilize phosphate. Two strains (MB123 and MPF47) showed significant disease reduction in glasshouse conditions were further evaluated under field conditions using three different application methods. Application of P. fluorescens (MPF47) in nursery as soil mix?+?seedling root treatments prior to transplantation resulted in significant disease reduction compared to control. Total chlorophyll and available iron were significantly higher in the MPF47 treated plants in contrast to infected control. In conclusion, siderophore producing bacteria MPF47 have strong biocontrol abilities and its application as soil mix?+?seedling root treatments provided strong shield to plant roots against R. solani and could be used for effective bio-management of pathogen.

Comparison of different methods for total RNA extraction from sclerotia of Rhizoctonia solani  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Chile | Language: English Abstract in english Background Rhizoctonia solani (teleomorph: Thanatephorus cucumeris) is one of the most important pathogens of rice (Oryza sativa L.) that causes severe yield losses in all rice-growing regions. Sclerotia, formed from the aggregation of hyphae, are important structures in the life cycles of R. solani [...] and contain a large quantity of polysaccharides, lipids, proteins and pigments. In order to extract high-quality total RNA from the sclerotia of R. solani, five methods, including E.Z.N.A.™ Fungal RNA Kit, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)-sodium borate, SDS-polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), guanidinium thiocyanate (GTC) and modified Trizol, were compared in this study. Results The electrophoresis results showed that it failed to extract total RNA from the sclerotia using modified Trizol method, whereas it could extract total RNA from the sclerotia using other four methods. Further experiments confirmed that the total RNA extracted using SDS-sodium borate, SDS-PVP and E.Z.N.A.™ Fungal RNA Kit methods could be used for RT-PCR of the specific amplification of GAPDH gene fragments, and that extracted using GTC method did not fulfill the requirement for above-mentioned RT-PCR experiment. Conclusion It is concluded that SDS-sodium borate and SDS-PVP methods were the better ones for the extraction of high-quality total RNA that could be used for future gene cloning and expression studies, whereas E.Z.N.A.™ Fungal RNA Kit was not taken into consideration when deal with a large quantity of samples because it is expensive and relatively low yield.

Factors influencing black scurf formation in untreated crops and after haulm destruction were investigated. As potato tubers mature they may gradually become covered with black scurf, the sclerotia of the fungus Rhizoctonia solani AG-3. After haulm destruction, black scurf formation is stimulated by changes at the tuber surface due to accelerated tuber maturation. These changes probably start within 3 to 6 days.The final amount of black scurf at harvesting depended on the method of haulm dest...

A novel L-amino acid oxidase from Trichoderma harzianum ETS 323 associated with antagonism of Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Trichoderma spp. are used as biocontrol agents against phytopathogens such as Rhizoctonia solani, but their biocontrol mechanisms are poorly understood. A novel L-amino oxidase (Th-LAAO) was identified from the extracellular proteins of Trichoderma harzianum ETS 323. Here, we show a FAD-binding glycoprotein with the best substrate specificity constant for L-phenylalanine. Although the amino acid sequence of Th-LAAO revealed limited homology (16-24%) to other LAAO members, a highly conserved FAD-binding motif was identified in the N-terminus. Th-LAAO was shown to be a homodimeric protein, but the monomeric form was predominant when grown in the presence of deactivated Rhizoctonia solani. Furthermore, in vitro assays demonstrated that Th-LAAO had an antagonistic effect against Rhizoctonia solani and a stimulatory one on hyphal density and sporulation in T. harzianum ETS 323. These findings further our understanding of T. harzianum as a biocontrol agent and provide insight into the biological function of l-amino acid oxidase. PMID:21456553

Genome Sequencing and Comparative Genomics of the Broad Host-Range Pathogen Rhizoctonia solani AG8  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani is a soil-borne basidiomycete fungus with a necrotrophic lifestyle which is classified into fourteen reproductively incompatible anastomosis groups (AGs). One of these, AG8, is a devastating pathogen causing bare patch of cereals, brassicas and legumes. R. solani is a multinucleate heterokaryon containing significant heterozygosity within a single cell. This complexity posed significant challenges for the assembly of its genome. We present a high quality genome assembly of R. solani AG8 and a manually curated set of 13,964 genes supported by RNA-seq. The AG8 genome assembly used novel methods to produce a haploid representation of its heterokaryotic state. The whole-genomes of AG8, the rice pathogen AG1-IA and the potato pathogen AG3 were observed to be syntenic and co-linear. Genes and functions putatively relevant to pathogenicity were highlighted by comparing AG8 to known pathogenicity genes, orthology databases spanning 197 phytopathogenic taxa and AG1-IA. We also observed SNP-level “hypermutation” of CpG dinucleotides to TpG between AG8 nuclei, with similarities to repeat-induced point mutation (RIP). Interestingly, gene-coding regions were widely affected along with repetitive DNA, which has not been previously observed for RIP in mononuclear fungi of the Pezizomycotina. The rate of heterozygous SNP mutations within this single isolate of AG8 was observed to be higher than SNP mutation rates observed across populations of most fungal species compared. Comparative analyses were combined to predict biological processes relevant to AG8 and 308 proteins with effector-like characteristics, forming a valuable resource for further study of this pathosystem. Predicted effector-like proteins had elevated levels of non-synonymous point mutations relative to synonymous mutations (dN/dS), suggesting that they may be under diversifying selection pressures. In addition, the distant relationship to sequenced necrotrophs of the Ascomycota suggests the R. solani genome sequence may prove to be a useful resource in future comparative analysis of plant pathogens.

Effects of Pseudomonas aureofaciens 63-28 on defense responses in soybean plants infected by Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

The objective of this work was to investigate the ability of the plant growth-promoting rhizobacterium Pseudomonas aureofaciens 63-28 to induce plant defense systems, including defense-related enzyme levels and expression of defense-related isoenzymes, and isoflavone production, leading to improved resistance to the phytopathogen Rhizoctonia solani AG-4 in soybean seedlings. Seven-dayold soybean seedlings were inoculated with P. aureofaciens 63-28, R. solani AG-4, or P. aureofaciens 63-28 plus R. solani AG-4 (P+R), or not inoculated (control). After 7 days of incubation, roots treated with R. solani AG-4 had obvious damping-off symptoms, but P+R-treated soybean plants had less disease development, indicating suppression of R. solani AG-4 in soybean seedlings. Superoxide dismutase (SOD) and catalase (CAT) activities of R. solani AG-4-treated roots increased by 24.6% and 54.0%, respectively, compared with control roots. Ascorbate peroxidase (APX) and phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) activities of R. solani AG-4-treated roots were increased by 75.1% and 23.6%, respectively. Polyphenol oxidase (PPO) activity in soybean roots challenged with P. aureofaciens 63-28 and P+R increased by 25.0% and 11.6%, respectively. Mn-SOD (S1 band on gel) and Fe-SOD (S2) were strongly induced in P+R-treated roots, whereas one CAT (C1) and one APX (A3) were strongly induced in R. solani AG-4- treated roots. The total isoflavone concentration in P+Rtreated shoots was 27.2% greater than the control treatment. The isoflavone yield of R. solani AG-4-treated shoots was 60.9% less than the control.

Identification of Rhizoctonia solani isolates from sugar beet roots by analyzing the ITS region of ribosomal DNA  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Rhizoctonia solani (Kühn is one of the most important sugar beet pathogens Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis groups (AGs 2-2 and 4 are proven to be the most common pathogenic strains on sugar beet. AG 2-2 (intraspecific groups IIIB and IV can cause root and crown rot while damping-off of seedlings is most frequently attributed to AG 4. Four isolates of R. solani from sugar beet roots showing characteristic crown and root rot symptoms, collected from different localities in Vojvodina Province, were chosen and compared to the well-characterized R. solani isolate R9, AG 2-2 IV, from the USA. All Vojvodinian isolates showed medium level of pathogenicity and were able to cause crown and root rot symptoms on inoculated sugar beet roots. Based on anastomosis reaction, isolates from Vojvodina did not belong to the AG 2-2 group. Sequencing of the ITS (internal transcribed spacer region of ribosomal DNA was performed on the Vojvodinian isolates from R9 in order to determine their relatedness. Sequence analysis showed that these isolates were different than R9 and were closely related (99-100% sequence homology to anastomosis group 4, subgroup HG II.

A One-Step, Immunochromatographic Lateral Flow Device Specific to Rhizoctonia solani and Certain Related Species, and Its Use to Detect and Quantify R. solani in Soil.  

Science.gov (United States)

ABSTRACT A murine hybridoma cell line GD2 secreting an immunoglobulin (Ig)M monoclonal antibody (MAb) was produced against surface antigens from an anastomosis group (AG) 4 isolate of Rhizoctonia solani (teleomorph: Thanatephorus cucumeris). Ascites were produced in mice using GD2 hybridoma cells and used to develop a rapid immunochromatographic lateral flow device (LFD) for the detection of antigens from R. solani and certain related Rhizoctonia spp. The LFD was tested for specificity against surface antigens from related and unrelated soil fungi. Antigens from representative isolates of R. solani AGs 1, 2-1, 2-3, 2-t, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, and BI gave a positive response in LFD tests, as did antigens from Thanatephorus orchidicola, T. praticola, R. fragariae (teleomorph: Ceratorhiza fragariae), Ceratorhiza goodyerae-repentis, Ceratobasidium cornigerum, and binucleate AGE. Antigens from R. solani AGs 2-2, 2-2IIIB, and 2-2IV and from the related fungi R. carotae, R. cerealis (teleomorph: Ceratobasium cereale), R. crocorum (teleomorph: Helicobasidium brebissonii), R. oryzae (teleomorph Waitea circinata), and R. zeae gave negative responses, as did antigens from a range of unrelated fungi and oomycetes including Fusarium, Gliocladium, Trichoderma, Pythium, and Phytophthora spp. The usefulness of the LFD to detect R. solani was demonstrated in soils naturally infested with R. solani AG3. There was close agreement between results of LFD tests and conventional plate enrichment tests employing selective medium. The specificity of the technique was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction PCR using R. solani AG3-specific primers and by analyses based on sequences of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS)1-5.8S-ITS2 rRNA-encoding regions of unrelated fungi recovered from soil samples. The LFD was used to quantify R. solani AG4 in artificially infested soil samples (chopped potato soil inoculum). Estimates of CFU per gram of soil were derived using a most-probable number technique, which was based on the presence or absence of a detectable signal in the LFD. Estimates of CFU obtained in LFD tests and those obtained in a plate-trapped antigen enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay incorporating MAb GD2 were identical (449 CFU g(-1) of soil). PMID:18943976

Susceptibility to Enzymatic Degradation of Cell Walls From Bean Plants Resistant and Susceptible to Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn 1  

Science.gov (United States)

Enzymes in culture filtrates of Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn grown using 4-day old or 20-day old bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) hypocotyl cell walls as a carbon source degraded xylan, galactan, galactomannan, araban, polygalacturonic acid, and carboxymethylcellulose. Extracts of lesions from R. solani infected plants, but not healthy plants, contained similar enzymatic activities. These enzyme sources readily solubilized cell wall constituents containing arabinose, galactose, and glucose from 4-day old, but not from 20-day old, bean cell walls. Analysis of cell walls prepared from infected plants revealed that the alterations in cell wall composition in the diseased host were limited largely to the immediate lesion areas and occurred during the early phases of pathogenesis. The cell walls of young susceptible bean seedlings could be degraded by R. solani enzymes, but the cell walls of older plants which are resistant to this pathogen were not susceptible to enzymatic destruction by the same enzyme preparation.

Mobile elements and mitochondrial genome expansion in the soil fungus and potato pathogen Rhizoctonia solani AG-3.  

Science.gov (United States)

The soil fungus Rhizoctonia solani is an economically important pathogen of agricultural and forestry crops. Here, we present the complete sequence and analysis of the mitochondrial genome of R. solani, field isolate Rhs1AP. The genome (235 849 bp) is the largest mitochondrial genome of a filamentous fungus sequenced to date and exhibits a rich accumulation of introns, novel repeat sequences, homing endonuclease genes, and hypothetical genes. Stable secondary structures exhibited by repeat sequences suggest that they comprise functional, possibly catalytic RNA elements. RNA-Seq expression profiling confirmed that the majority of homing endonuclease genes and hypothetical genes are transcriptionally active. Comparative analysis suggests that the mitochondrial genome of R. solani is an example of a dynamic history of expansion in filamentous fungi. PMID:24461055

Mechanism of the generation of new somatic compatibility groups within Thanatephorus cucumeris (Rhizoctonia solani).  

Science.gov (United States)

Single-basidiospore isolates (SBIs) were obtained from field isolates of Thanatephorus cucumeris (Rhizoctonia solani) AG-1 IC and AG-2-2 IV. Formation of distinctive tufts, a recognized feature of heterokaryon synthesis, was observed, and isolates derived from hyphal-tipped tuft hyphae were obtained following pairings between various strains. Three distinctive types of tufts were formed: the fibrous type of mating-compatible homokaryon-homokaryon (Hom-Hom) pairings, the sparse type between heterokaryon-homokaryon (Het-Hom) pairings originating from one parent, and the compact type between Het-Hom pairings originating from different parents. Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) profile of fingerprints of these tuft isolates verified that they were all heterokaryotic. Because of heterokaryotic vigor, the growth and pathogenicity of the majority of tuft isolates increased compared with their contributing SBIs. New somatic compatibility groups (SCGs) that were different from parental field isolates occurred following heterokaryon formation within T. cucumeris. Tuft isolates produced by Hom-Hom and Het-Hom pairings among isolates of different parents yielded no somatic compatibility with the original parent isolates and a high frequency of new SCGs (62-100%). This was in contrast to those produced by Hom-Hom and Het-Hom pairings among isolates with a common parent that yielded only 12-37% new SCGs. The SCG diversity of R. solani in the field may be attributed to new fitter heterokaryons formed between a heterokaryon of one pair of parents and a homokaryon of another parent pair. This mechanism greatly contributes to genetic diversity in the field and accounts for the failure to recover the expected distribution of SCGs from a field population. PMID:23995511

In vitro attachment of phylloplane yeasts to Botrytis cinerea, Rhizoctonia solani, and Sclerotinia homoeocarpa.  

Science.gov (United States)

The ability of yeasts to attach to hyphae or conidia of phytopathogenic fungi has been speculated to contribute to biocontrol activity on plant surfaces. Attachment of phylloplane yeasts to Botrytis cinerea, Rhizoctonia solani, and Sclerotinia homoeocarpa was determined using in vitro attachment assays. Yeasts were incubated for 2 d on potato dextrose agar (PDA) prior to experimentation. A total of 292 yeasts cultured on PDA were screened for their ability to attach to conidia of B. cinerea; 260 isolates (89.1%) attached to conidia forming large aggregates of cells, and 22 isolates (7.5%) weakly attached to conidia with 1 or 2 yeast cells attached to a few conidia. Ten yeasts (3.4%), including 8 isolates of Cryptococcus laurentii, 1 isolate of Cryptococcus flavescens, and an unidentified species of Cryptococcus, failed to attach to conidia. All non-attaching yeasts produced copious extracellular polysaccharide (EPS) on PDA. Seventeen yeast isolates did not attach to hyphal fragments of B. cinerea, R. solani, and S. homoeocarpa after a 1 h incubation, but attachment was observed after 24 h. Culture medium, but not culture age, significantly affected the attachment of yeast cells to conidia of B. cinerea. The 10 yeast isolates that did not attach to conidia when grown on agar did attach to conidia (20%-57% of conidia with attached yeast cells) when cultured in liquid medium. Attachment of the biocontrol yeast Rhodotorula glutinis PM4 to conidia of B. cinerea was significantly greater at 1 x 10(7) yeast cells x mL(-1) than at lower concentrations of yeast cells. The ability of yeast cells to attach to fungal conidia or hyphae appears to be a common phenotype among phylloplane yeasts. PMID:15714235

Preparation and characterization of nano-sized calcium carbonate as controlled release pesticide carrier for validamycin against Rhizoctonia solani  

International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

Nano-sized calcium carbonate (nano-CC) was studied in terms of acting as a carrier for a pesticide. Nano-CC was prepared by reaction of calcium chloride and sodium carbonate by the reversed-phase microemulsion method and then loaded with the pesticide validamycin. The resulting material was characterized by X-ray diffraction analysis and scanning electron microscopy. The loading efficiency, sustained-release performance, germicidal efficacy, and stability also were investigated. The size of the loaded nano-CC can be adjusted to between 50 to 200 nm by varying the water/surfactant molar ratio from 30/1 to 10/1, and the loading efficiency can be increased to about 20% by increasing the size of the nano-CC. The material displayed better germicidal efficacy against Rhizoctonia solani compared to conventional technical validamycin after about 7 days, and the time of the release of validamycin was extended to 2 weeks. Given the loading efficiency, stability, sustained-release performance and good environmental compatibility of the material, the method for its preparation may be extended to other hydrophilic pesticide.

Development of a difenoconazole/propiconazole microemulsion and its antifungal activities against Rhizoctonia solani AG1-IA.  

Science.gov (United States)

According to its physical and chemical properties, the composition of difenoconazole/propiconazole microemulsion was as follows: xylene as solvent, emulsifier HSH as surfactant and methanol as cosurfactant. The optimal formulation of difenoconazole/propiconazole microemulsion was oil/SAA/water = 1/2/5 (w/w), in which the SAA consisted of emulsifier HSH and methanol with ratio of 3/2 (w/w). The cloud point of difenoconazole/propiconazole microemulsion was 70 degrees C and its effective ingredient content was 2.5% measured by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). Its heat storage stability was studied according to the standards. The decomposition rates of the difenoconazole/propiconazole microemulsion were merely 2.45%, 2.63% respectively and met the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) standards of pesticide microemulsion. Investigated by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM) the particle size of difenoconazole/propiconazole microemulsion was 90-140 nm and its antifungal activities against Rhizoctonia solani AG1-IA were tested and compared with that of Meiyu. We found that the inhibition rates in the difenoconazole/propiconazole microemulsion treatment group were significantly higher than that of the emulsion group with the same content of effective ingredients and the study also revealed that its inhibiting ability on the formation and germination of sclerotia was significant.

Role of Bacterial Communities in the Natural Suppression of Rhizoctonia solani Bare Patch Disease of Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia bare patch and root rot disease of wheat, caused by Rhizoctonia solani AG-8, develops as distinct patches of stunted plants and limits the yield of direct-seeded (no-till) wheat in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. At the site of a long-term cropping systems study near Ritzville, WA, a decline in Rhizoctonia patch disease was observed over an 11-year period. Bacterial communities from bulk and rhizosphere soil of plants from inside the patches, outside the patches, and recovered patches were analyzed by using pyrosequencing with primers designed for 16S rRNA. Taxa in the class Acidobacteria and the genus Gemmatimonas were found at higher frequencies in the rhizosphere of healthy plants outside the patches than in that of diseased plants from inside the patches. Dyella and Acidobacteria subgroup Gp7 were found at higher frequencies in recovered patches. Chitinophaga, Pedobacter, Oxalobacteriaceae (Duganella and Massilia), and Chyseobacterium were found at higher frequencies in the rhizosphere of diseased plants from inside the patches. For selected taxa, trends were validated by quantitative PCR (qPCR), and observed shifts of frequencies in the rhizosphere over time were duplicated in cycling experiments in the greenhouse that involved successive plantings of wheat in Rhizoctonia-inoculated soil. Chryseobacterium soldanellicola was isolated from the rhizosphere inside the patches and exhibited significant antagonism against R. solani AG-8 in vitro and in greenhouse tests. In conclusion, we identified novel bacterial taxa that respond to conditions affecting bare patch disease symptoms and that may be involved in suppression of Rhizoctonia root rot and bare batch disease.

Genetic variation and pathogenicity of anastomosis group 2 isolates of Rhizoctonia solani in Australia.  

Science.gov (United States)

A collection of isolates of Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group (AG) 2 was examined for genetic diversity and pathogenicity. Anastomosis reactions classified the majority of isolates into the known subgroups of AG 2-1 and AG 2-2 but the classification of several isolates was ambiguous. Morphological characters were consistent with the species, with no discriminating characters existing between subgroups. Vertical PAGE of pectic enzymes enabled the separation of zymogram group (ZG) 5 and 6 within AG 2-1, but not the separation of ZG 4 and 10 within AG 2-2. PCR analysis using inter-simple sequence repeats (ISSR) and the intron-splice junction (ISJ) region supported the separation of ZG 5 and 6, while the AG 2-2 isolates were separated by geographic region. A comparison of distance matrices produced by the zymogram analysis and PCR indicated a strong correlation between the marker types. Pathogenicity studies suggested canola (Brassica napus) cultivars were most severely affected by AG 2-1, while cultivars of two species of medic (Medicago truncatula cv. Caliph and M. littoralis cv. Herald) were susceptible to both AG 2-1 and 2-2. The results indicate that AG 2 is a polyphyletic group in which the classification of subtypes is sometimes difficult. Further investigation of the population structure within Australia is required to determine the extent and origin of the observed diversity. PMID:17707626

Expression of a chitinase gene from Metarhizium anisopliae in tobacco plants confers resistance against Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

The chit1 gene from the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae, encoding the endochitinase CHIT42, was placed under the control of the CaMV 35S promoter, and the resulting construct was transferred to tobacco. Seventeen kanamycin-resistant transgenic lines were recovered, and the presence of the transgene was confirmed by polymerase chain reactions and Southern blot hybridization. The number of chit1 copies was determined to be varying from one to four. Copy number had observable effects neither on plant growth nor development. Substantial heterogeneity concerning production of the recombinant chitinase, and both general and specific chitinolytic activities were detected in leaf extracts from primary transformants. The highest chitinase activities were found in plants harboring two copies of chit1 inserts at different loci. Progeny derived from self-pollination of the primary transgenics revealed a stable inheritance pattern, with transgene segregation following a mendelian dihybrid ratio. Two selected plants expressing high levels of CHIT42 were consistently resistant to the soilborne pathogen Rhizoctonia solani, suggesting a direct relationship between enzyme activity and reduction of foliar area affected by fungal lesions. To date, this is the first report of resistance to fungal attack in plants mediated by a recombinant chitinase from an entomopathogenic and acaricide fungus. PMID:19593671

Genetic Analysis of Banded Leaf and Sheath Blight Resistance (Rhizoctonia Solani In Maize  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Line × tester analysis involving 12 inbred lines and 5 inbred testers were carried to study the genetics of resistance to banded leaf and sheath blight in maize incited by Rhizoctonia solani in Kharif2010at B.A.U. research farm. Out of seventeen inbreds including five testers, three lines were resistant, twelve lines were moderately resistant and two lines were moderately susceptible. Both additive and dominance components were important in the inheritance of this disease with the predominant role of additive gene action. The inbreds, BAUIM-3, BQPM-2 and BQPM-4 were good general combiners for disease resistance as well as yield. Among the testers, BAUIM-2 was found to be the best general combiner for disease resistance as well as yield. The estimate of specific combining ability effect revealed that the cross combinations, BAU1M-3× CM-150, BAU1M-1×BAU1M-2, BAU1M-4×HKI 193-1, BAU1M-4×HKI163, V341× CM150, BQPM-2× BAU1M-2 and CML161× HKI 193-1 were identified as best cross combinations in respect of disease resistance as well as yield.

En el país se han identificado los grupos anastomósicos presentes y se ha realizado la caracterización cultural del hongo pero no la molecular ni la de virulencia, por lo que estos objetivos fueron planteados en el presente trabajo. Se utilizaron cuarenta aislamientos obtenidos de los estados Táchira, Mérida, Trujillo y Lara. Se utilizaron las técnicas de RAPD, UPR e ITS para la caracterización molecular, y pruebas de patogenicidad en papa ‘Kennebec’ para determinar la virulencia. Con las tres técnicas moleculares se observaron variaciones genéticas entre las cepas del hongo y se confirmó la presencia de AG-3 y AG-2.1 de R. solani. Las cepas mostraron diferencias significativas en la virulencia, la cual estuvo influenciada por la temperatura.Rhizoctonia solani causes the disease known as rizoctoniosis in potato and it is a serious problem in Venezuela.

High protection of protein kinase NtPK against the phytopatogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani / La proteína quinasa NtPK confiere alto nivel de protección contra el hongo fitopatógeno Rhizoctonia solani  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Cuba | Language: English Abstract in spanish Con el objetivo de identificar los genes involucrados en la resistencia y susceptibilidad de la Nicotiana tabacum al hongo fitopatógeno Rhizoctonia solani, se generaron (a través de librerías substractivas) transcriptos que se expresan diferentemente en cada interacción. Ello permitió el aislamiento [...] de un gen que codifica para una proteína quinasa que se silencia durante la interacción de susceptibilidad y se activa durante la resistencia. La expresión de este gen en plantas de tabaco incrementó significativamente su resistencia frente a un aislado agresivo de R. solani. Sin embargo, el silenciamiento del gen redujo drásticamente la resistencia a una cepa no agresiva de R. solani. Además se evaluaron genes como superóxido dismutasa, hsr203j, quitinasas y fenilalanina amonio-liasa relacionados con la resistencia a enfermedades en plantas de tabaco en las que se sobrexpresa o silencia el gen que codifica para la proteína quinasa. Este gen se puede utilizar para el diseño de una estrategia de resistencia a R. solani en cultivos de tabaco u otras plantas de la familia Solanácea, susceptibles a este fitopatógeno. Abstract in english To identify Nicotiana tabacum genes involved in resistance and susceptibility to the phytopathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani, transcripts were generated (by subtractive libraries), which were differentially expressed in each interaction. This enabled isolation of a gene coding for a protein kinase [...] that becomes silent during the susceptibility interaction and is activated during resistance. The expression of this gene in tobacco plants significantly increased resistance against an aggressive isolate of R. solani. However, silencing the gene drastically reduced resistance to a non-aggressive isolate of R. solani. Besides, genes such as: superoxide dismutase, hsr203j, chitinases and phenylalanine ammonia lyase, related with resistance to tobacco plant diseases, in which the gene coding for the protein kinase is overexpressed or silenced, were evaluated. This gene can be used to design a strategy of resistance to R. solani in tobacco cultures or other plants of the Solanaceae family, susceptible to this phytopathogen.

Genetic and Genomic Analysis of Rhizoctonia solani Interactions with Arabidopsis; Evidence of Resistance Mediated through NADPH Oxidases  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani is an important soil-borne necrotrophic fungal pathogen, with a broad host range and little effective resistance in crop plants. Arabidopsis is resistant to R. solani AG8 but susceptible to R. solani AG2-1. A screen of 36 Arabidopsis ecotypes and mutants affected in the auxin, camalexin, salicylic acid, abscisic acid and ethylene/jasmonic acid pathways did not reveal any variation in response to R. solani and demonstrated that resistance to AG8 was independent of these defense pathways. The Arabidopsis Affymetrix ATH1 Genome array was used to assess global gene expression changes in plants infected with AG8 and AG2-1 at seven days post-infection. While there was considerable overlap in the response, some gene families were differentially affected by AG8 or AG2-1 and included those involved in oxidative stress, cell wall associated proteins, transcription factors and heat shock protein genes. Since a substantial proportion of the gene expression changes were associated with oxidative stress responses, we analysed the role of NADPH oxidases in resistance. While single NADPH oxidase mutants had no effect, a NADPH oxidase double mutant atrbohf atrbohd resulted in an almost complete loss of resistance to AG8, suggesting that reactive oxidative species play an important role in Arabidopsis's resistance to R. solani.

Mungbean plants expressing BjNPR1 exhibit enhanced resistance against the seedling rot pathogen, Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Mungbean, Vigna radiata (L.) Wilczek is an important pulse crop that is widely cultivated in semi- arid tropics. The crop is attacked by various soil-borne pathogens like Rhizoctonia solani, which causes dry rot disease and seriously affects its productivity. Earlier we characterized the non-expressor of pathogenesis related gene-1(BjNPR1) of mustard, Brassica juncea, the counterpart of AtNPR1 of Arabidopsis thaliana. Here, we transformed mungbean with BjNPR1 via Agrobacterium tumefaciens. Because of the recalcitrant nature of mungbean, the effect of some factors like Agrobacterium tumefaciens strains (GV2260 and LBA4404), pH, L: -cysteine and tobacco leaf extract was tested in transformation. The transgenic status of 15 plants was confirmed by PCR using primers for nptII. The independent integration of T-DNA in transgenic plants was analyzed by Southern hybridization with an nptII probe and the expression of BjNPR1 was confirmed by RT-PCR. Some of the T(0) plants were selected for detached leaf anti-fungal bioassay using the fungus Rhizoctonia solani, which showed moderate to high level of resistance depending on the level of expression of BjNPR1. The seedling bioassay of transgenic T(2) plants indicated resistance against dry rot disease caused by R. solani. PMID:21584838

Queima foliar e tombamento de mudas em plantas medicinais causadas por Rhizoctonia solani AG1 - 1B Leaf blight and seedling damping-off of medicinal plants caused by Rhizoctonia solani AG1 - 1B  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Recentemente, em plantas medicinais da família Labiatae (Rosmarinus officinalis, Lavandula sp., Salvia officinalis e Thymus vulgaris, constatou-se tombamento de mudas em pós-emergência e queima foliar ascendente. Em isolamentos efetuados a partir de tecidos doentes, observou-se o desenvolvimento de um fungo com hifas ramificadas em ângulo de aproximadamente 90º, constrição na base da ramificação, septo próximo à inserção da hifa lateral e outras características típicas do gênero Rhizoctonia. Inoculou-se o fungo em plantas sadias cultivadas em vasos plásticos. Naquelas inoculadas por pincelamento de inóculo, ocorreu queima foliar de forma generalizada aos quatro dias da inoculação, enquanto nas inoculadas pela deposição de inóculo na superfície dos vasos, houve queima foliar ascendente, como observado em condições naturais, aos dez dias da inoculação. Com base na morfologia da colônia, crescimento micelial, número de núcleos, identificação do grupo e subgrupo de anastomose e da fase teleomórfica, o patógeno foi caracterizado como Rhizoctonia solani (fase anamórfica de Thanatephorus cucumeris. Com a reprodução dos sintomas da doença por inoculação artificial nas mudas e o reisolamento, em meio de batata dextrose ágar (BDA, do mesmo fungo a partir de tecidos doentes confirmou-se R. solani como o agente etiológico da doença.Recently, seedling damping off and blight progressing from old to young leaves were found on medicinal plants of the family Labiatae (Rosmarinus officinalis, Lavandula sp., Salvia officinalis and Thymus vulgaris. A fungus was isolated from diseased tissues, in which the hyphae had diameter, ramification angle of about 90º, basal constriction, a septum next to the lateral hyphae, and other typical characteristics of the genus Rhizoctonia. The fungus was inoculated on healthy plants cultivated in plastic pots by brushing inoculum suspension on leaves (brushing or by pouring the inoculum suspension on the surface of pots (soil infestation. On plants inoculated by brushing, disease symptoms occurred on all leaves four days after inoculation. On plants inoculated by soil infestation, leaf blight continued to ascent for ten days after inoculation under natural conditions. Based on colony morphology, mycelial growth, number of nuclei, identification of anastomosys group and subgroup, and on the teleomorph, the pathogen was considered to be Rhizoctonia solani (anamorph of Thanatephorus cucumeris. As disease symptoms were reproduced by artificial inoculation on plants and the fungus was reisolated on potato dextrose agar (PDA from diseased tissues, R. solani was confirmed to be the causal agent of the disease.

Full Text Available Rhizoctonia solani isolates obtained from common beans (Phaseolus vulgaris grown in the mountainous Atlantic Rainforest (Mata Atlântica region of São Paulo, Brazil, were analyzed to determine their genetic diversity using internal transcribed spacer (ITS, microsatellite and telomere sequence-based PCR primers. Restriction digestion of the ITS1/5.8S/ITS2 ribosomal regions yielded unique banding patterns specific for AG4 and its subgroups. The ITS restriction digestion (ITS/RFLP, telomere and microsatellite primers identified five to 11 genotypes within the isolates of R. solani. While all isolates were pathogenic on beans, there was no correlation found between genotypic differences and pathogenicity. The different PCR primers revealed a number of isolates that were genetically similar. Some of these genetic groups were supported by more than one of the primers utilized in this study, thus confirming their relationship.A diversidade genética de 18 isolados de Rhizoctonia solani de feijoeiro (Phaseolus vulgaris cultivado na Mata Atlântica de São Paulo, Brasil foi avaliada através da análise do espaçadores transcritos internos (ITS, microssatélites e iniciadores ("primers" específicos para sequências teloméricas. A análise de restrição da região ribossomal ITS1/5,8S/ITS2 produziu um padrão de bandas específico para o grupo de anastomose 4 (GA 4 e seus subgrupos. O padrão obtido com ITS/RFLP, microsatélites e os iniciadores teloméricos permitiram identificar cinco a 11 genótipos entre os isolados de R. solani. Enquanto todos os isolados foram patogênicos em feijoeiro, não houve correlação entre patogenicidade e diferenças genotípicas. Os diferentes iniciadores para PCR revelaram que muitos isolados são geneticamente similares, análise esta que pode ser confirmada por mais de um conjunto de iniciadores, fortalecendo a relação deste agrupamento.

N-nitrourea derivatives as novel potential fungicides against Rhizoctonia solani: synthesis, antifungal activities, and 3D-QSAR.  

Science.gov (United States)

A series of N-nitrourea derivatives bearing various aryl substituents were conveniently obtained via three steps including nitration, carbamic chlorination, and aminolysis reactions. The structures of all newly synthesized compounds were characterized and confirmed by IR, ¹H-NMR, MS, and elemental analysis. The preliminary bioassays indicate that five compounds possess sufficient fungicidal activity against Rhizoctonia solani. Structure-activity relationship (SAR) is also discussed based on the experimental data, and the further quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) was analyzed using comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) and comparative molecular similarity indices analysis (CoMSIA).

Regulation of L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase from Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Maximal levels of L-henylalanine ammonia-lyase activity were observed when the mycelial felts of Rhizoctonia solani were grown for 4.5 days on Byrde synthetic medium containing 3.5% glucose and 0.3% L-phenylalanine, Differential centrifugation studies have indicated that the enzyme is localized in the soluble fraction. The time course of induction of L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activity by L-phenylalanine showed a lag period of 1 to 1.5 h and reached a maximum around 4 to 6 h after the addition of the inducer to the medium. L-Phenylalanine, L-tyrosine, and L-tryptophan were nearly equally efficient inducers of the enzyme. D-Phenylalanine was as efficient as the L-isomer, whereas D-tyrosine was a poor inducer. Light, gibberellic acid, indole 3-acetic acid, and kinetin had no effect on the induction of L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activity. Cycloheximide did not inhibit the uptake of amino acids by the mycelia but completely blocked the incorporation of radioactive amino acids into soluble proteins and the development of L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activity. Actinomycin D inhibited both the incorporation of 32P into ribonucleic acid and the enzyme activity. Conclusive evidence for de novo synthesis of L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase was obtained by the incorporation of radioactive amino acids into the enzyme. Electrophoretic analysis of the purified preparation showed a single protein band that coincided with radioactivity and L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activity. Glucose and intermediates of the tricarboxylic acid cycle, like citric acid, alpha-ketoglutaric acid, and succinic acid, and the metabolites of L-phenylalanine, like o-coumaric acid, o-hydroxyphenylacetic acid, and protocatechuic acid, significantly repressed L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activity. The observed repression was not relieved by cyclic adenosine 5'-triphosphate. Images

Induction of systemic resistance in rice by leaf extracts of Zizyphus jujuba and Ipomoea carnea against Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Plants accumulate a great diversity of natural products, many of which confer protective effects against phytopathogenic attack. Earlier we had demonstrated that the leaf extracts of Zizyphus jujuba and Ipomoea carnea inhibit the in vitro mycelial growth of Rhizoctonia solani, and effectively reduce the incidence of sheath blight disease in rice. Here we demonstrate that foliar application of the aqueous leaf extracts of Z. jujuba and I. carnea followed by challenge inoculation with R. solani induces systemic resistance in rice as evident from significantly increased accumulation of pathogenesis-related proteins such as chitinase, ?-1,3-glucanase and peroxidase, as well as defense-related compounds such as phenylalanine ammonia-lyase and phenolic substances. Thin layer chromatographic separation of secondary metabolites revealed presence of alkaloid and terpenoid compounds in the leaf extracts of Z. jujuba that exhibited toxicity against R. solani under in vitro condition. Thus, the enhanced sheath blight resistance in rice seedlings treated with leaf extracts of Z. jujuba or I. carnea can be attributed to the direct inhibitory effects of these leaf extracts as well as their ability to elicit systemic resistance against R. solani.

A novel mycovirus closely related to viruses in the genus Alphapartitivirus confers hypovirulence in the phytopathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

We report here the biological and molecular attributes of a novel dsRNA mycovirus designated Rhizoctonia solani partitivirus 2 (RsPV2) from strain GD-11 of R. solani AG-1 IA, the causal agent of rice sheath blight. The RsPV2 genome comprises two dsRNAs, each possessing a single ORF. Phylogenetic analyses indicated that this novel virus species RsPV2 showed a high sequence identity with the members of genus Alphapartitivirus in the family Partitiviridae, and formed a distinct clade distantly related to the other genera of Partitiviridae. Introduction of purified RsPV2 virus particles into protoplasts of a virus-free virulent strain GD-118 of R. solani AG-1 IA resulted in a derivative isogenic strain GD-118T with reduced mycelial growth and hypovirulence to rice leaves. Taken together, it is concluded that RsPV2 is a novel dsRNA virus belonging to Alphapartitivirus, with potential role in biological control of R. solani. PMID:24889241

Evidence from mycelial studies for differences in the sterol biosynthetic pathway of Rhizoctonia solani and Phytophthora cinnamomi.  

Science.gov (United States)

Phytophthora cinnamomi, a member of the Pythiacease, does not synthesize sterols. Small amounts of squalene, but no squalene epoxide or sterol, were isolated from the dried mycelium of this fungus after growth in sterol-free medium. The dried mycelium of Rhizoctonia solani, a sterol-synthesizing fungus grown under the same conditions, contained small amounts of squalene and squalene epoxide and large amounts of ergosterol. When the two organisms were grown in the presence of [14C]acetate, only labelled geraniol, farnesol and squalene were recovered from the P. cinnamomi mycelium, whereas labelled geraniol, farnesol, squalene, squalene epoxide and ergosterol were recovered from the R. solani mycelium. Similar results were obtained when the organisms were incubated in the presence of [2(-14)C]mevalonate; in this case, labelled lanosterol was also detected in the R. solani mycelium. Both organisms, when incubated in the presence of unlabelled squalene, squalene epoxide or lanosterol, incorporated these compounds into their mycelia; however, only the R. solani mycelium was able to convert these substrates into products further along the sterol pathway. It appears that squalene is the terminal compound in the sterol biosynthetic pathway of P. cinnamomi.

The double life of Ceratobasidium: orchid mycorrhizal fungi and their potential for biocontrol of Rhizoctonia solani sheath blight of rice.  

Science.gov (United States)

Ceratobasidium includes orchid mycorrhizal symbionts, plant pathogens and biocontrol agents of soilborne plant pathogens. It is not known to what extent members of the first guild also can participate in the others. Ceratobasidium spp. were isolated from roots of Colombian orchids and identified by phylogeny based on nrITS sequences. Phylogenetic grouping of Ceratobasidium spp. isolates corresponded to orchid host substrate (epiphytic vs. terrestrial). Isolates were tested for virulence on rice and for biocontrol of Rhizoctonia solani, causal agent of sheath blight of rice. All Ceratobasidium spp. isolates caused some signs of sheath blight but significantly less than a pathogenic R. solani used as a positive control. When Ceratobasidium spp. isolates were inoculated on rice seedlings 3 d before R. solani, they significantly reduced disease expression compared to controls inoculated with R. solani alone. The use of Ceratobasidium spp. from orchids for biological control is novel, and biodiverse countries such as Colombia are promising places to look for new biocontrol agents. PMID:22962357

Biocontrol of Rhizoctonia solani AG-2, the causal agent of damping-off by Muscodor cinnamomi CMU-Cib 461.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani is a damping-off pathogen that causes significant crop loss worldwide. In this study, the potential of Muscodor cinnamomi, a new species of endophytic fungus for controlling R. solani AG-2 damping-off disease of plant seedlings by biological fumigation was investigated. In vitro tests showed that M. cinnamomi volatile compounds inhibited mycelial growth of pathogens. Among nine solid media tested, rye grain was the best grain for inoculum production. An in vivo experiment of four seedlings, bird pepper, bush bean, garden pea and tomato were conducted. The results indicated that treatment with 30 g of M. cinnamomi inoculum was the minimum dose that caused complete control of damping-off symptoms of all seedlings after one month of planting. The R. solani-infested soil showed the lowest percentage of seed germination. In addition, M. cinnamomi did not cause any disease symptoms. From the results it is clear that M. cinnamomi is effective in controlling R. solani AG-2 both in vitro and in vivo. PMID:22806753

Trichoderma harzianum strain SQR-T37 and its bio-organic fertilizer could control Rhizoctonia solani damping-off disease in cucumber seedlings mainly by the mycoparasitism.  

Science.gov (United States)

Damping-off disease is caused by Rhizoctonia solani and leads to serious loss in many crops. Biological control is an efficient and environmentally friendly way to prevent damping-off disease. Optical micrographs, scanning electron micrographs, and the determination of hydrolytic enzymes were used to investigate the antagonism of Trichoderma harzianum SQR-T37 (SQR-T37) against R. solani. Experiments were performed in pots to assess the in vivo disease-control efficiency of SQR-T37 and bio-organic fertilizer. The results indicate that the mycoparasitism was the main mechanism accounting for the antagonistic activity of SQR-T37. In one experiment, the population of R. solani was decreased from 10(6) internal transcribed spacer (ITS) copies per gram soil to 10(4) ITS copies per gram soil by the presence of the antagonist. In this experiment, 45% of the control efficiency was obtained when 8 g of SQR-T37 hyphae per gram soil was applied. In a second experiment, as much as 81.82% of the control efficiency was obtained when bio-organic fertilizer (SQR-T37 fermented organic fertilizer, BIO) was applied compared to only 27.27% of the control efficiency when only 4 g of SQR-T37 hyphae per gram soil was applied. Twenty days after incubation, the population of T. harzianum was 4.12 × 10(7) ITS copies per gram soil in the BIO treatment, which was much higher than that in the previous treatment (8.77 × 10(5) ITS copies per gram soil), where only SQR-T37 was applied. The results indicated that SQR-T37 was a potent antagonist against R. solani in a mycoparasitic way that decreased the population of the pathogen. Applying BIO was more efficient than SQR-T37 application alone because it stabilized the population of the antagonist. PMID:21484203

Micoflora asociada a dos sustratos orgánicos y su efecto en el control de Rhizoctonia solani Kühn / Mycoflora of two organic substrates and its effect on the control of Rhizoctonia solani Kühn

Full Text Available SciELO Colombia | Language: Spanish Abstract in spanish Los abonos orgánicos se vienen utilizando como ente supresor de enfermedades de la raíz de la planta, debido a la gran cantidad de microorganismos que interactúan en ellos, lo que ha llevado a considerarlos como parte de las estrategias de control biológico. En este contexto, se evaluó la diversidad [...] de la micoflora de dos sustratos orgánicos (suelo orgánico y lombricompuesto) y su efecto sobre el control del hongo Rhizoctonia solani. La diversidad de la micoflora de los sustratos se determinó a través del método de dilución de placas de Warcup, que permitió contar el número de colonias e identificar los hongos. Los aislamientos más abundantes de cada sustrato fueron seleccionados para realizar cultivos duales con Rhizoctonia solani. Se encontraron 16 aislamientos de hongos pertenecientes a tres ordenes y ocho géneros, incluyendo (Penicillium sp., Aspergillus sp., Fusarium sp. y Trichoderma harzianum Rifai). En el lombricompuesto se encontró una micoflora significativamente más abundante (P?0,05) que en el suelo orgánico. En los cultivos duales, T. harzianum presentó un porcentaje de inhibición de R. solani significativamente superior (P?0,05) al del resto de los hongos. Con la incorporación del lombricompuesto no se introdujeron nuevos hongos, pero sí se incrementaron las poblaciones existentes en la micoflora nativa. T. harzianum resultó ser el hongo de mayor crecimiento y mayor porcentaje de inhibición, lo que sugiere que es un controlador biológico de R. solani, y que es factible incorporarlo al suelo durante la preparación del mismo. Abstract in english The use of organic manures for root disease control, which results from the remarkable diversity of microorganisms that interact there, has led to consider them as part of biological control strategies. In this context, we evaluated the mycological diversity of two organic substrates, (organic soil [...] and vermicompost) and their effect on the control of the fungus Rhizoctonia solani. The mycoflora of the two organic substrates was assessed through Warcup's soil plate method, which allowed identifying the fungi and counting the number of colonies. The most abundant isolates were grown against R. solani in dual cultures. The results allowed identifying 16 isolates belonging to three orders and eight genera of fungi, including Penicillium sp., Aspergillus sp., Fusarium sp. and Trichoderma harzianum Rifai. A significantly more abundant mycoflora (P?0.05) was found in the vermicompost substrate. In the dual cultures, T. harzianum attained a higher pathogen inhibition percentage (P?0.05) than the other fungi. The vermicompost substrate did not determine the growth of new fungi, but enhanced the development of the pre-existing native ones. Not only having shown the best results in controlling R. solani, but also the most vigorous growth among the identified fungi, T. harzianum comes up as a promissory biological controller of the pathogen, that can be incorporated to the soil during its preparation.

Para promover a infestação artificial, foram colocados 800 mg de inóculo em 1 kg de cada material de solo. O silicato de cálcio aumentou os teores de Ca trocável e a soma de bases nos dois solos. Um decréscimo na saturação por Al de 70 para 19% e um aumento na saturação por bases de 9 para 21% alteraram significativamente a supressividade natural do LEa à R. solani. Com relação à TRe, a aplicação de silicato não teve nenhum efeito na sua conducividade, dado ao seu natural caráter eutrófico, o qual já é favorável ao desenvolvimento deste fungo. A esterilização não influiu no desenvolvimento de R. solani, o que sugere que os fatores abióticos foram os responsáveis pela supressividade ou conducividade desses solos.The effect of calcium silicate slag and soil sterilization on the natural suppressiveness of a Typic Acrustox (clay Dark Red Latosol -- LEa and the natural conduciveness of an Oxic Haplustoll (TRe to Rhizoctonia solani were studied under greenhouse conditions. The experimental design was a three-replicate completely randomized one, with 2 x 3 x 2 factorial combination of the following treatments: two soil kinds (LEa and TRe, collected at 0-20 cm layer; three treatments with and without soil sterilization, calcium silicate slag and nontreated control; and uninfested and infested with R. solani. Each soil material was infested previously with 800 mg of the inoculum per kg soil. Application of silicate was done mixing 0,63 g of this product with 1 kg each soil material and incubated for 30 days. The application ofsilicate increased the exchangeable Ca2+ and bases amount in both soils. The decrease in the aluminum saturation level from 70 to 19% and the increase in base saturation from 9 to 21% altered significantly the natural suppressiveness of LEa to R. solani. Application of silicate to the TRe had no effect on its conduciveness, for its natural eutrophic character, which is benefic to R. solani development. Sterilization by autoclavation did not influence disease development on bean by R. solani. This suggests that possibly other abiotic factors were responsible for either suppressiveness or conduciveness of these soils.

Solarização do solo em casa-de-vegetação e campo para o controle de Rhizoctonia solani AG-4 / Soil solarization under greenhouse and field conditions to the control of Rhizoctonia solani AG-4  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese Os cultivos em ambientes protegidos apresentaram uma grande expansão na década de 1990 no Brasil. O solo desses locais pode, por ser intensa e sucessivamente cultivado, se tornar infestado por patógenos como Rhizoctonia solani, responsável por tombamento e podridão de raízes em muitas espécies de pl [...] antas. O presente trabalho avaliou o emprego da solarização, dentro e fora de uma casa-de-vegetação vedada com plástico transparente, para o controle de R. solani. Quatro experimentos foram realizados, dois no verão de 1997/1998 e outros dois no verão seguinte, 1998/1999, em Piracicaba, SP (latitude 22º 42' e longitude 47º 38'). Bolsas de náilon contendo solo autoclavado misturado a grãos de trigo colonizados com R. solani AG-4 foram enterradas a 10 e a 20 cm de profundidade em parcelas solarizadas e não solarizadas, dentro e fora da casa-de-vegetação, sendo coletadas após 20, 30 e 40 dias para os dois primeiros experimentos e 15, 30 e 45 dias para o terceiro e quarto. Avaliou-se a viabilidade do patógeno após a recuperação dos grãos dos solos, por meio do plaqueamento destes em ágar-água, contando-se, dois dias depois, sob microscópio estereoscópio, os que apresentaram crescimento micelial característico de R. solani. Foi obtida a erradicação do patógeno após 20 e 30 dias de solarização na casa de vegetação e após 30 a 45 dias no campo, provavelmente porque houve menor perda de calor durante a noite no ambiente protegido, pois as temperaturas médias (40 a 45 º C, dependendo do experimento) e máxima (49º C) dos solos solarizados às 15:00 horas, a 10 cm de profundidade, foram semelhantes nos dois ambientes. Nas parcelas não solarizadas da casa-de-vegetação o patógeno também perdeu a viabilidade, porém mais lentamente (40 dias de tratamento para sua erradicação) que nas parcelas solarizadas. Abstract in english Crops grown under protected environment have had a great expansion in Brazil in the decade of 1990. In such environments soil is intensively and successively used and it may become infested with soilborne plant pathogens, such as Rhizoctonia solani, responsible for seedling damping-off and root rots [...] of several plant species. In the present work soil solarization was used to the control of R. solani under greenhouse and field conditions. Four experiments were carried out, two in the summer of 1997/1998 and the other two in 1998/1999 in Piracicaba city, São Paulo state, Brazil (latitude 22º 42' and longitude 47º 38'). Nylon bags containing disinfested soil with propagules of R. solani AG4 (wheat grains previously colonized with the pathogen) were buried at 10 and 20 cm soil depth in solarized and non-solarized plots. After 20, 30, and 40 days in the two first experiments and 15, 30, and 45 days in the third and fourth experiments, the bags were removed from the soil. The grains were collected from the soil of each bag and placed in water-agar Petri dishes. After two days of incubation, grains showing typical growth of R. solani mycelium were assessed. Eradication of R. solani was accomplished after 20 to 30 days of soil solarization inside the greenhouse and after 30 to 45 days in the field, probably because in the protected environment the heat loss was smaller at night, since at 15:00 h the soil temperatures were similar in the solarized soils of both environments; with maximum of 49º C and medium temperatures between 40 and 45 º C, at 10 cm soil depth. In the non-solarized soil of the greenhouse the pathogen also lost its viability, although more slowly (40 days of treatment) than in the solarized plots.

Biological Control of Rhizoctonia solani, the Causal Agent of Rice Sheath Blight by Antagonistics Bacteria in Greenhouse and Field Conditions  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Pseudomonas fluorescens isolates that inhibited growth of Rhizoctonia solani Kühn, the rice sheath blight pathogen were collected the rhizosplane and surrounding soil of healthy and rice sheath blight disease in farming of the Guilan province, Iran. Two hundred eighty eight isolates tested and among them only antagonistic ability of 8 isolates were demonstrated by using the dual culture method. According to the results of biochemical and morphological trials all isolates were identified as P. fluorescens biovar 3. By determining the effects of volatile metabolites, secretion of extracellular and antibiotics of these isolates inhibited mycelial growth of R. solani in vitro. All P. fluorescens isolates produced siderophore on King`s medium B, inhibited the mycelial growth of the R. solani. Antagonistics isolates reduced the germination and cause the lysis of sclerotia of R. solani. In greenhouse conditions antagonistic isolates were used by seed coating, soil drenching and foliar spray. Statistical analysis of data indicated that there existed significant differences between seed, soil and plant treatments. All of the isolates in seed coating are more effective. In the field conditions foliar spray of isolate B41 mixed with benlate were applied. The disease intensity in B41 isolate for seed coating, soil drenching and seed coating + foliar spray were 10.5, 11.75 and 18.75%, respectively, while the control plants showed 52% disease intensity. These results suggest that the P. fluorescens isolates studied have an excellent potential to be used as biocontrol agents of R. solani in rice at the field conditions.

Biocontrol of Rhizoctonia solani damping-off disease in cucumber with Bacillus pumilus SQR-N43.  

Science.gov (United States)

Biological control is an efficient and environmentally friendly way to prevent damping-off disease. Micrographs were used to investigate the ability of Bacillus pumilus (B. pumilus) SQR-N43 to control Rhizoctonia solani (R. solani) Q1 in cucumbers. The root colonization ability of B. pumilus SQR-N43 was analyzed in vivo with a green fluorescent protein (GFP) tag. A pot experiment was performed to assess the in vivo disease-control efficiency of B. pumilus SQR-N43 and its bio-organic fertilizer. Results indicate that B. pumilus SQR-N43 induced hyphal deformation, enlargement of cytoplasmic vacuoles and cytoplasmic leakage in R. solani Q1 mycelia. A biofilm on the root surface was formed when the roots were inoculated with 10(7)-10(8)cells g(-1) of soil of GFP-tagged B. pumilus SQR-N43. In the pot experiment, the biocontrol reduced the concentration of R. solani. In contrast to applications of only B. pumilus SQR-N43 (N treatment), which produced control efficiencies of 23%, control efficiencies of 68% were obtained with applications of a fermented organic fertilizer inoculated with B. pumilus SQR-N43 (BIO treatment). After twenty days of incubation, significant differences in the number of CFUs and the percentage of spores of B. pumilus SQR-N43 were recorded between the N treatment (2.20×10(7)CFU g(-1) of soil and 79%, respectively) and the BIO treatment (1.67×10(8)CFU g(-1) of soil and 52%, respectively). The results indicate that B. pumilus SQR-N43 is a potent antagonist against R. solani Q1. The BIO treatment was more effective than the N treatment because it stabilized the population and increased the active form of the antagonist. PMID:21775112

Population Dynamics of Sugar Beets, Rhizoctonia solani, and Laetisaria arvalis: Responses of a Host, Plant Pathogen, and Hyperparasite to Perturbation in the Field †  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani causes crown rot of sugar beets, a severe disease that has destroyed up to 60% of the plants in a test field in western Nebraska. Laetisaria arvalis, a natural hyperparasite of Rhizoctonia spp., was isolated from fields in western Nebraska. To test for the potential for biological control of R. solani, in November 1980 (following harvest) we applied various combinations of a nematicide (Telone II; Dow Chemical Co.), a nutrition source (sugar beet pulp), and an inoculum of L. arvalis in a randomized block design. Populations of R. solani, L. arvalis, and sugar beets were monitored monthly through October 1981 (just after harvest). In control and nematicide plots, the R. solani population did not change significantly through time. In plots inoculated with L. arvalis, the R. solani populations declined through March, concomitant with an increase in L. arvalis. L. arvalis then declined with a corresponding increase in the R. solani populations. Beet plant numbers declined significantly in all treatments. We suggest that reduction of the R. solani populations with the hyperparasite L. arvalis is possible but that a stable equilibrium naturally exists.

Effects of fescue Festuca arundinacea and/or clover Trifolium repens debris and fescue leaf leachate on clover as modified by ozone and Rhizoctonia solani  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Clover Trifolium repens and tall fescue Festuca arundinacea plants were exposed to ozone and inoculated with Rhizoctonia solani separately and in combination to investigate ozone/R. solani interactions on clover and tall fescue biomass, in the presence of clover and/or tall fescue debris or fescue leaf leachate. Ozone reduced biomass in clover. Rhizoctonia solani alone reduced clover biomass but the amount of this reduction was significantly greater in the presence of a single acute O/sub 3/ exposure. In the presence of multiple O/sub 3/ exposures the synergistic effect on clover biomass disappeared and the stress from R. solani was lost. The effects of O/sub 3/ and R. solani were not as pronounced on fescue as they were on clover. The debris treatments increased biomass of both clover and fescue, but the magnitude of change depended on the debris type. Leachate from fescue modified the effects of R. solani and O/sub 3/, but debris from clover and/or fescue did not. Clover plants treated with R. solani and O/sub 3/ had less biomass than control plants when stressed by leachate from fescue, but significantly greater biomass in the presence of leachate from O/sub 3/-treated fescue leaves.

Evolutionary diversification indicated by compensatory base changes in ITS2 secondary structures in a complex fungal species, Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

The rRNA cistron (18S-ITS1-5.8S-ITS2-28S) is used widely for phylogenetic analyses. Recent studies show that compensatory base changes (CBC) in the secondary structure of ITS2 correlate with genetic incompatibility between organisms. Rhizoctonia solani consists of genetically incompatible strain groups (anastomosis groups, AG) distinguished by lack of anastomosis between hyphae of strains. Phylogenetic analysis of internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences shows a strong correlation with AG determination. In this study, ITS sequences were reannotated according to the flanking 5.8S and 28S regions which interact during ribogenesis. One or two CBCs were detected between the ITS2 secondary structure of AG-3 potato strains as compared to AG-3 tobacco strains, and between these two strains and all other AGs. When a binucleate Rhizoctonia species related to Ceratobasidiaceae was compared to the AGs of R. solani, which were multinucleate (3-21 nuclei per cell), 1-3 CBCs were detected. The CBCs in potato strains of AG-3 distinguish them from AG-3 tobacco strains and other AGs yielding further evidence that the potato strains of AG-3 originally described as R. solani are a species distinct from other AGs. The ITS1-5.8S-ITS2 sequences were analyzed by direct sequencing of PCR products from 497 strains of AG-3 isolated from potato. The same 10 and 4 positions in ITS1 and ITS2, respectively, contained variability in 425 strains (86%). Nine different unambiguous ITS sequences (haplotypes) could be detected in a single strain by sequencing cloned PCR products indicating that concerted evolution had not homogenized the rRNA cistrons in many AG-3 strains. Importantly, the sequence variability did not affect the secondary structure of ITS2 and CBCs in AG-3. PMID:19609478

Suppression of Rhizoctonia solani on Impatiens by Enhanced Microbial Activity in Composted Swine Waste-Amended Potting Mixes.  

Science.gov (United States)

ABSTRACT Peat moss-based potting mix was amended with either of two composted swine wastes, CSW1 and CSW2, at rates from 4 to 20% (vol/vol) to evaluate suppression of pre-emergence damping-off of impatiens (Impatiens balsamina) caused by Rhizoctonia solani (anastomosis group-4). A cucumber bioassay was used prior to each impatiens experiment to monitor maturity of compost as the compost aged in a curing pile by evaluating disease suppression toward both Pythium ultimum and R. solani. At 16, 24, 32, and 37 weeks after composting, plug trays filled with compost-amended potting mix were seeded with impatiens and infested with R. solani to determine suppression of damping-off. Pre-emergence damping-off was lower for impatiens grown in potting mix amended with 20% CSW1 than in CSW2-amended and nonamended mixes. To identify relationships between disease suppression and microbial parameters, samples of mixes were collected to determine microbial activity, biomass carbon and nitrogen, functional diversity, and population density. Higher rates of microbial activity were observed with increasing rates of CSW1 amendment than with CSW2 amendments. Microbial biomass carbon and nitrogen also were higher in CSW1-amended mixes than in CSW2-amended potting mixes 1 day prior to seeding and 5 weeks after seeding. Principal component analysis of Biolog-GN2 profiles showed different functional diversities between CSW1- and CSW2-amended mixes. Furthermore, mixes amended with CSW1 had higher colony forming units of fungi, endospore-forming bacteria, and oligotrophic bacteria. Our results suggest that enhanced microbial activity, functional and population diversity of stable compost-amended mix were associated with suppressiveness to Rhizoctonia damping-off in impatiens.

Induction of Laccase Activity in Rhizoctonia solani by Antagonistic Pseudomonas fluorescens Strains and a Range of Chemical Treatments  

Science.gov (United States)

Fungi often produce the phenoloxidase enzyme laccase during interactions with other organisms, an observation relevant to the development of biocontrols. By incorporating the laccase substrate 2,2?-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzthiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) into agar, we analyzed laccase induction in the plant-pathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani when paired against isolates of the soil bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens. Substantial induction of R. solani laccase was seen only in pairings with strains of P. fluorescens known to produce antifungal metabolites. To study laccase induction further, a range of chemical treatments was applied to R. solani liquid cultures. p-Anisidine, copper(II), manganese(II), calcium ionophore A23187, lithium chloride, calcium chloride, cyclic AMP (cAMP), caffeine, amphotericin B, paraquat, ethanol, and isopropanol were all found to induce laccase; however, the P. fluorescens metabolite viscosinamide did not do so at the concentrations tested. The stress caused by these treatments was assessed by measuring changes in lipid peroxidation levels and dry weight. The results indicated that the laccase induction seen in pairing plate experiments was most likely due to calcium or heat shock signaling in response to the effects of bacterial metabolites, but that heavy metal and cAMP-driven laccase induction was involved in sclerotization.

Evidence from cell-free systems for differences in the sterol biosynthetic pathway of Rhizoctonia solani and Phytophthora cinnamomi.  

Science.gov (United States)

Cell-free preparations of both Rhizoctonia solani, a sterol-synthesizing fungus, and Phytophthora cinnamomi, a non-sterol-synthesizing fungus, incubated in the presence of [2(-14)C]mevalonate and iodacetamide, converted the mevalonate into labelled mevalonate 5-phosphate, mevalonate 5-pyrophosphate and isopentenyl pyrophosphate. In the absence of iodoacetamide, but under anaerobic conditions, the same preparations converted the mevalonate into labelled geraniol, farnesol and squalene, the first two compounds presumably as their pyrophosphates. When cell-free preparations of both organisms were incubated aerobically in the presence of [1(-14)C]isopentenyl pyrophosphate, only labelled geraniol, farnesol and squalene were recovered from the P. cinnamomi reaction mixture, whereas labelled geraniol, farnesol, squalene, squalene epoxide, lanosterol and ergosterol were present in the R. solani reaction mixture. When these same preparations were incubated in the presence of 14C-labelled squalene, labelled squalene epoxide, lanosterol and ergosterol were recovered from the R. solani reaction mixture. In contrast, the P. cinnamomi preparation was unable to convert the squalene into products further along the sterol pathway; instead, a portion of the labelled squalene was converted into water-soluble products, indicating the possible existence of a squalene-degradation process in this organism. It appears that the block in the sterol biosynthetic pathway of P. cinnamomi occurs at the level of squalene epoxidation.

Screening, identification and evaluation of potential biocontrol fungal endophytes against Rhizoctonia solani AG3 on potato plants.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani is an important soilborne pathogen of potato plants whose control typically depends on chemicals. Here, we screened six fungal endophytes for the suppression of R. solani growth both in vitro and in a greenhouse. These isolates were identified using morphology and internal transcribed spacer regions of rDNA as Alternaria longipes, Epicoccum nigrum, Phomopsis sp., and Trichoderma atroviride. Both T. atroviride and E. nigrum showed significant in vitro inhibition of mycelial growth of R. solani, with the greatest inhibition zone observed for E. nigrum species in dual cultures. The highest inhibition was observed for T. atroviride. The inhibition rate was also significantly correlated with the culture filtrates of these isolates. Confocal microscopy showed that T. atroviride acts as a mycoparasite and competitor. However, E. nigrum and A. longipes produce secondary metabolites, while Phomospsis sp. competes for nutrients and space. Greenhouse experiments confirmed that T. atroviride and E. nigrum improved potato yield significantly and decreased the stem disease severity index of sensitive potato. PMID:20738401

Characterization of mycolytic enzymes of Bacillus strains and their bio-protection role against Rhizoctonia solani in tomato.  

Science.gov (United States)

Four antagonists bacteria namely, Bacillus megaterium MB3, B. subtilis MB14, B. subtilis MB99 and B. amyloliquefaciens MB101 were able to produce chitinase, ?-1,3-glucanase and protease in different range with the presence of Rhizoctonia solani cell wall as a carbon source. Amplification of chitinase (chiA) gene of 270 bp and ?-1, 3-glucanase gene of 415 bp was given supportive evidence at molecular level of antibiosis. After in vitro screening, all antagonists were tested against R. solani under greenhouse conditions. Root treatment of Bacillus strains showed superior defense during pathogen suppression in terms of chitinase, glucanase, peroxidase, poly phenol oxidase, phenylalanine ammonia-lyase activity and total phenolic content in leaves of tomato. All these enzymes accumulated high in tomato leaves as compared to roots. Pathogenesis-related proteins and defense-related enzymes accumulation was directly correlated with plant protection and greenhouse results indicated that B. amyloliquefaciens MB101- and B. subtilis MB14-treated plants offered 69.76 and 61.51 % disease reductions, respectively, over the infected control. These results established that these organisms have the potential to act as biocontrol agents. This study could be highlighted a mutual importance of liquid formulation of antagonistic Bacillus spp. against root associated sclerotia former pathogen R. solani. PMID:22684745

The Nature and Role of Metabolic Leakage from Root-knot Nematode Galls and Infection by Rhizoctonia solani  

Science.gov (United States)

A severe root rot of tomato caused by Meloidogyne incognita and Rhizoctonia solani was associated with nutrient mobilization into gall tissue and root exudation. Root decay did not develop when root exudates were continuously removed by leaching. When leachates were collected from M. incognita-infected and control roots and applied to roots of tomatoes inoculated with R. solani alone, roots receiving leachates from M. incognita-infected roots developed a severe rot while roots receiving leachates from control roots were free of decay. During the fourth and fifth weeks following nematode infection, an increased mobilization of ¹?C labelled compounds to nematode-infected roots occurred. Higher counts of water soluble nonvolatile ¹?C labelled exudates leaked from nematode-infected roots than from control roots at each weekly sampling period. Higher concentrations of Ca, Mg, Na, K, Fe, and Cu were found in exudates from nematode-infected roots than from the control roots. During the first 14 days following nematode infection, carbohydrates were the major organic constituents in exudates leaking from nematode-infected roots. Fourteen days after nematode infection, nitrogenous compounds become the major organic constituents leaking from roots. Shifts in C/N ratio of root exudates from nematode-infected roots were associated with parasitic development of R. solani in tomato roots.

In vitro antagonists of Rhizoctonia solani tested on lettuce: rhizosphere competence, biocontrol efficiency and rhizosphere microbial community response.  

Science.gov (United States)

The rhizosphere competence of 15 in vitro antagonists of Rhizoctonia solani was determined 4 weeks after sowing inoculated lettuce seeds into nonsterile soil. Based on the colonization ability determined by selective plating, eight strains were selected for growth chamber experiments to determine their efficacy in controlling bottom rot caused by R. solani on lettuce. Although in the first experiment all antagonists colonized the rhizosphere of lettuce with CFU counts above 2 x 10(6) g(-1) of root fresh weight, only four isolates significantly reduced disease severity. In subsequent experiments involving these four antagonists, only Pseudomonas jessenii RU47 showed effective and consistent disease suppression. Plate counts and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) fingerprints of Pseudomonas-specific gacA genes amplified from total community DNA confirmed that RU47 established as the dominant Pseudomonas population in the rhizosphere of inoculated lettuce plants. Furthermore, the DGGE fingerprint revealed that R. solani AG1-IB inoculation severely affected the bacterial and fungal community structure in the rhizosphere of lettuce and that these effects were much less pronounced in the presence of RU47. Although the exact mechanism of antagonistic activity and the ecology of RU47 remain to be further explored, our results suggest that RU47 is a promising agent to control bottom rot of lettuce.

Efeito do silício nas concentrações de lignina e de açúcares em bainhas de folhas de arroz infectadas por Rhizoctonia solani / Effect of silicon on lignin and sugar concentrations of leaf sheaths in rice plants infected by Rhizoctonia solani  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese A queima das bainhas, causada pelo fungo Rhizoctonia solani Kühn, é uma das mais importantes doenças que afetam a produção de arroz no mundo. Este trabalho teve como objetivo verificar o efeito do silício (Si) nas concentrações de lignina solúvel e insolúvel e de açúcares totais em bainhas de folhas [...] de arroz infectadas por R. solani. Plantas de arroz dos cultivares BR-Irga-409 e Labelle foram cultivadas em solução nutritiva sem (0 mM) ou com (2 mM) Si. A concentração de Si nas bainhas das folhas das plantas dos cultivares BR-Irga-409 e Labelle supridas com Si aumentou em 77% e 84%, respectivamente, em relação às plantas não supridas com Si. O comprimento relativo da lesão de queima das bainhas foi significativamente menor nas bainhas das plantas supridas com Si em relação às bainhas das plantas não supridas com esse elemento. Não houve efeito do Si e nem da inoculação com R. solani nas concentrações de mananas, galactanas, arabinanas, xilanas, glucanas e de açúcares totais nas bainhas das plantas dos dois cultivares. Para as plantas dos dois cultivares supridas com Si, a concentração de açúcares totais foi menor quando comparada com a dos dois cultivares na ausência de Si. Não houve variação na concentração de lignina insolúvel, solúvel e total entre os cultivares. As concentrações de lignina insolúvel e total foram maiores nas plantas supridas com Si, independentemente da inoculação com R. solani. Em conclusão, plantas de arroz supridas com Si foram mais resistentes à queima das bainhas devido a uma maior lignificação dos tecidos das bainhas e menor concentração de açúcares totais. Abstract in english Sheath blight, caused by the fungus Rhizoctonia solani Kühn, is the major disease affecting rice production worldwide. This study aimed to verify the effect of silicon (Si) on the concentrations of soluble and insoluble lignin and sugars in the leaf sheaths of rice plants infected by R. solani. Rice [...] plants from cultivars BR-Irga-409 and Labelle were grown in nutrient solution without or with Si (2 mM). As compared to plants non-supplied with Si, the Si concentration in leaf sheaths in cultivars BR-Irga-409 and Labelle supplied with Si increased by 77% and 84%, respectively. The relative lesion length of sheath blight was significantly lower in plants supplied with Si compared to non-supplied plants. There was no effect of Si or inoculation with R. solani on the concentrations of mannans, galactans, arabinans, xylans, glucans and sugars in the sheaths of plants from both cultivars. There was no variation in the concentrations of insoluble, soluble and total lignin between the cultivars. The concentrations of total and insoluble lignin were higher on plants supplied with Si regardless of inoculation with R. solani. In conclusion, the rice plants supplied with Si were more resistant to sheath blight due to an increase in the lignifications of the leaf sheath tissues and the lower concentration of total sugars.

Analysis of Phaseolus vulgaris Response to Its Association with Trichoderma harzianum (ALL-42) in the Presence or Absence of the Phytopathogenic Fungi Rhizoctonia solani and Fusarium solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

The present study was carried out to evaluate the ability of Trichoderma harzianum (ALL 42-isolated from Brazilian Cerrado soil) to promote common bean growth and to modulate its metabolism and defense response in the presence or absence of the phytopathogenic fungi Rhizoctonia solani and Fusarium solani using a proteomic approach. T. harzianum was able to promote common bean plants growth as shown by the increase in root/foliar areas and by size in comparison to plants grown in its absence. The interaction was shown to modulate the expression of defense-related genes (Glu1, pod3 and lox1) in roots of P. vulgaris. Proteomic maps constructed using roots and leaves of plants challenged or unchallenged by T. harzianum and phytopathogenic fungi showed differences. Reference gels presented differences in spot distribution (absence/presence) and relative volumes of common spots (up or down-regulation). Differential spots were identified by peptide fingerprinting MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. A total of 48 identified spots (19 for leaves and 29 for roots) were grouped into protein functional classes. For leaves, 33%, 22% and 11% of the identified proteins were categorized as pertaining to the groups: metabolism, defense response and oxidative stress response, respectively. For roots, 17.2%, 24.1% and 10.3% of the identified proteins were categorized as pertaining to the groups: metabolism, defense response and oxidative stress response, respectively. PMID:24878929

El análisis UP-PCR y DS-PCR permitió determinar tres grupos de aislamientos; dentro de estas asociaciones formadas no se encontró ninguna relación evidente entre la posición en el dendrograma y la actividad antagónica, pero sí permitió separar las especies de Trichoderma por grupos, e incluso encontrar diferencias dentro de aislamientos de una misma especie. Los resultados muestran que el comportamiento micoparasítico de los aislamientos de Trichoderma spp. varía según el hongo fitopatógeno, evidenciando una amplia especificidad del antagonista por su sustrato, es decir por el hongo atacado; por lo tanto es necesario realizar cuidadosas selecciones del aislamiento de Trichoderma que se utilice en programas de control de fitopatógenos. Abstract in english The biological effectiveness of eight isolates of Trichoderma spp. coming from Colombian soils was evaluated under in vitro and greenhouse conditions for the controlled causal agents of damping-off, Sclerotium rolfsii and Rhizoctonia solani.

The analysis UP-PCR and DS-PCR permitted the determination of three groups of isolates. Within these associations no clear link between the position in the dendrogram and antagonistic activity was found, but it allowed separation of species of Trichoderma by groups and even within isolates of the same species. The results indicate that the mycoparasitic capacity of Trichoderma spp. varies according to the phytopathogen fungi, showing a broad specificity of the antagonist for its substrate that is attacked by the fungus. Therefore it is necessary to make careful selections of the isolates of Trichoderma to be used in pathogens control programs.

Gene expression profiling of the plant pathogenic basidiomycetous fungus Rhizoctonia solani AG 4 reveals putative virulence factors.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani is a ubiquitous basidiomycetous soilborne fungal pathogen causing damping-off of seedlings, aerial blights and postharvest diseases. To gain insight into the molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis a global approach based on analysis of expressed sequence tags (ESTs) was undertaken. To get broad gene-expression coverage, two normalized EST libraries were developed from mycelia grown under high nitrogen-induced virulent and low nitrogen/methylglucose-induced hypovirulent conditions. A pilot-scale assessment of gene diversity was made from the sequence analyses of the two libraries. A total of 2280 cDNA clones was sequenced that corresponded to 220 unique sequence sets or clusters (contigs) and 805 singlets, making up a total of 1025 unique genes identified from the two virulence-differentiated cDNA libraries. From the total sequences, 295 genes (38.7%) exhibited strong similarities with genes in public databases and were categorized into 11 functional groups. Approximately 61.3% of the R. solani ESTs have no apparent homologs in publicly available fungal genome databases and are considered unique genes. We have identified several cDNAs with potential roles in fungal pathogenicity, virulence, signal transduction, vegetative incompatibility and mating, drug resistance, lignin degradation, bioremediation and morphological differentiation. A codon-usage table has been formulated based on 14694 R. solani EST codons. Further analysis of ESTs might provide insights into virulence mechanisms of R. solani AG 4 as well as roles of these genes in development, saprophytic colonization and ecological adaptation of this important fungal plant pathogen.

Full Text Available El éxito de la selección de individuos resistentes a las enfermedades, se basa en la utilización de métodos de inoculación que induzcan un nivel de incidencia de la enfermedad cercana al 100%. Con el objeto de determinar un método eficiente de inoculación de arroz con R. solani, se llevó a cabo un ensayo durante los años 2001 y 2002 en Araure, estado Portuguesa. El ensayo se realizó en bloques al azar con cuatro repeticiones, utilizando dos fuentes de inóculo, esclerocios (Es y granos de arroz infectados con R. solani (GAI. Los métodos de inoculación con GAI difirieron en la dosis, forma y época de aplicación del inóculo. Los resultados indican que la inoculación con Es fue más confiable, con una incidencia superior al 98%, en ambos años. Los resultados obtenidos con GAI fueron variables, al ser afectados por las precipitaciones ocurridas en el período post-inoculación, en el año 2002. Durante el año 2001, sin embargo, se alcanzó una incidencia cercana al 100%, en las parcelas donde se aplicaron 25 g de arroz infectado, al voleo, 70 días después de la siembra. Este método es más práctico y puede ser recomendado, en el caso donde la cantidad de individuos a ser evaluados es elevada, si la inoculación coincide con el período de salidas deAbstract Resistance breeding success depends on the use of efficient inoculation techniques, which guarantee levels of disease incidence close to 100 %. In order to select an efficient rice inoculation technique with R. solani, an experiment was carried out during 2001 and 2002 in Araure, Portuguesa. The experimental design was a Randomized Complete Block with four repetitions, where sclerotia (Sc and rice grains infected by R. solani (IRG were used as sources of inocula. Techniques based on IRG differed in the amount, form and time of inocula application. Results indicate that Sc inoculation was the most reliable technique, since incidence levels were close to 100%, in both years. Results attained with IRG were variable, being affected by rains that occurred on the post-inoculation period, in 2002. During the 2001 experiment, however, an incidence level close to 100% was reached when 25 g of IRG were broadcasted on the plots, 70 days after sowing. This technique is easier and may be recommended in cases where the amount of individuals to be evaluated is high. The IRG technique should not be used during the peak of the rainy season to reduce the odds of having rains on the post-inoculation period

Expression of genes of Rhizoctonia solani and the biocontrol Stachybotrys elegans during mycoparasitism of hyphae and sclerotia.  

Science.gov (United States)

Knowledge of mycoparasitism has been focused on how antagonists affect pathogens in relation to mechanisms, metabolites and gene expression. Just as microbial antagonists use a diverse arsenal of mechanisms to dominate interactions with hosts, hosts also have diverse responses to counteract antagonism. In this study differential gene expression of eight mycoparasitism-induced genes and eight host-response genes was monitored during in vivo interactions between the mycoparasite Stachybotrys elegans and hyphae and sclerotia of the host, Rhizoctonia solani over 5 d of interaction. Using real time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction, comparative analyses demonstrated that hyphal and sclerotial structures triggered different expression patterns. These results indicated that multiple regulatory mechanisms might be involved. The high elevated expression of some genes belonging to the mycoparasite and the host suggest that these genes play an important role during the mycoparasitic process and host defense respectively.

Diversity of Fluorescent Pseudomonas in Potato Crops of the Cundiboyacense Region and its in vitro Antagonic Activity against Rhizoctonia solani  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Fluorescent Pseudomonas are one of the most important benefic bacteria of the rizhosphere. It is because they can control some soil borne phytopatogen agents as a result of their antagonistic capacity. There are few works about the composition and diversity of fluorescent Pseudomonas in tropical countries. In this work we studied the composition of fluorescent Pseudomonas form different potato crops located at the Cundiboyacense región between 2100 and 3200 mosl, which is the most important area of potato production in Colombia. This study also assesses the effect of some crop practices variables on rizosphere bacteria richness and diversity. Finally, it was determined the antagonistic capacity of some Pseudomonas fluorescens isolates against Rhizoctonia solani. A total of 45 rhizosphere samples were taken from 15 potato fields. To isolate the Pseudomonas it was used king B medium modified by us. Our results showed that this modified medium consistently allowed a more efficient recovery of the fluorescent Pseudomonas than the media reported in the literature. 80.7% and 82.7% of the fluorescent Pseudomonas isolated from the rizosphere and rizoplane respectively were Pseudomonas fluorescens. It suggest a low fluorescent pseudomonas diversity. Our work also denotes an effect of the maize-potato crop rotation strategy on the amount of the fluorescent Pseudomonas isolated from the rizosphere. These results may have importance in designing appropriate strategies for bio-controlling soil borne phytopathogens. In tropical countries like Colombia, this knowledge might help to improve crop yields. Finally it was found native isolates with antagonistic activity against Rhizoctonia solani in the bioassays in vitro, such results if not assure an efficient control of the pathogen in field conditions, may give an idea of the potentiality of P.fluorescens to be applied as bacterial community, strains or derived products of them.

Molecular identification of thirteen isolates of Trichoderma spp. and evaluation of their pathogenicity towards Rhizoctonia solani Kühn / Identificación molecular y evaluación patogénica de trece aislamientos de Trichoderma spp. frente a Rhizoctonia solani Kühn  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Cuba | Language: English Abstract in spanish La incidencia de las enfermedades causadas por Rhizoctonia solani Kühn en las plantas aumenta cada año. Su control es fundamentalmente con productos químicos, en su mayoría muy tóxicos. Por tal razón, se investigan alternativas bioplaguicidas. Trichoderma spp. es uno de los hongos más utilizados par [...] a el control biológico de plagas, por sus propiedades y mecanismos de acción: competencia por el sustrato, antibiosis y micoparasitismo. Este trabajo tuvo como objetivos la identifi cación molecular y evaluación patogénica de 13 aislamientos del género Trichoderma frente a aislamientos de R. solani. Se evaluó su efecto antibiótico sobre aislamientos de 3 grupos de anastomosis de R. solani (AG-2.1, AG-5, AG-8) por el método de celofán. La identificación molecular partió de la secuenciación del espaciador interno del transcrito de la región del ADN ribosomal y del factor de elongación de la traducción EF1A. Más del 70 % de los aislamientos evaluados ejerció un efecto fungistático; mientras que el resto actuó como fungicida. La evaluación de la eficacia técnica en condiciones de campo corroboró estos resultados. A partir de la secuenciación y comparación de los datos de las secuencias depositadas en TrichoBLAST/GenBank, se comprobó que todos los aislamientos tenían el 100 % de identidad con la especie Trichoderma asperellum Samuels. Se seleccionaron los aislamientos 3, 13, 17, 75, 78, 85 y 90 como promisorios agentes de control biológico, por su alto potencial antibiótico y eficacia técnica en condiciones de campo. Abstract in english Disease caused by Rhizoctonia solani Kühn infestations has become a growing problem for commercially important crops. Although this fungus is usually controlled through the application of chemicals, the heavy ecological and financial toll of the latter has prompted for research on biopesticides as a [...] viable alternative. Trichoderma spp. is a well-known fungus often used for the biological control of crop pests, whose anti-fungal mechanisms include competition for the substrate, antibiosis and/or mycoparasitism. In the present work, we have used molecular techniques (sequencing of amplicons from the internal transcribed spacer of ribosomal DNA and the EF1A translation elongation factor) for the taxonomic identification of 13 Trichoderma spp. isolates in our collection, also evaluating their antibiotic effect on strains from three anastomosis groups of R. solani (AG-2.1, AG-5, AG-8) by the cellophane method. The sequences obtained from all isolates exhibited 100 % identity with deposited T. asperellum Samuels sequences in TrichoBLAST/GenBank, enabling their taxonomic assignment to this species. When analyzed by in vitro tests, over 70 % of the isolates exhibited a fungistatic effect towards R. solani, with the remaining strains exhibiting fungicidal activity; these results were later corroborated by technical efficacy tests under field conditions. Isolates 3, 13, 17, 75, 78, 85 and 90 were selected as potential biocontrol agents due to their high antibiotic activity and technical efficacy under field conditions.

Development of a DNA probe and a PCR based diagnostic assay for Rhizoctonia solani using a repetitive DNA sequence cloned from a Sri Lankan isolate.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani is a destructive fungal pathogen of many economically important plants all over the world and the causative organism of sheath blight of rice in many tropical countries including Sri Lanka. A repetitive sequence from the genome of R. solani was cloned and characterized with a view to develop a DNA probe and a PCR diagnostic assay for detection of the fungus. The cloned sequence was 1550 bp long and appeared to be interspersed throughout the genome. The cloned sequence hybridized only to R. solani DNA and was sensitive enough to detect 100 pg of R. solani genomic DNA. PCR primers were designed from the cloned sequence and it was possible to develop a PCR assay for the specific detection of the fungal DNA with 10 pg sensitivity. PMID:15323247

Nuclear magnetic resonance: a tool for imaging belowground damage caused by Heterodera schachtii and Rhizoctonia solani on sugar beet  

Science.gov (United States)

Belowground symptoms of sugar beet caused by the beet cyst nematode (BCN) Heterodera schachtii include the development of compensatory secondary roots and beet deformity, which, thus far, could only be assessed by destructively removing the entire root systems from the soil. Similarly, the symptoms of Rhizoctonia crown and root rot (RCRR) caused by infections of the soil-borne basidiomycete Rhizoctonia solani require the same invasive approach for identification. Here nuclear magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was used for the non-invasive detection of belowground symptoms caused by BCN and/or RCRR on sugar beet. Excessive lateral root development and beet deformation of plants infected by BCN was obvious 28 days after inoculation (dai) on MRI images when compared with non-infected plants. Three-dimensional images recorded at 56 dai showed BCN cysts attached to the roots in the soil. RCRR was visualized by a lower intensity of the MRI signal at sites where rotting occurred. The disease complex of both organisms together resulted in RCRR development at the site of nematode penetration. Damage analysis of sugar beet plants inoculated with both pathogens indicated a synergistic relationship, which may result from direct and indirect interactions. Nuclear MRI of plants may provide valuable, new insight into the development of pathogens infecting plants below- and aboveground because of its non-destructive nature and the sufficiently high spatial resolution of the method.

The impact of the pathogen Rhizoctonia solani and its beneficial counterpart Bacillus amyloliquefaciens on the indigenous lettuce microbiome  

Science.gov (United States)

Lettuce belongs to the most commonly raw eaten food worldwide and its microbiome plays an important role for both human and plant health. Yet, little is known about the impact of potentially occurring pathogens and beneficial inoculants of the indigenous microorganisms associated with lettuce. To address this question we studied the impact of the phytopathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani and the biological control agent Bacillus amyloliquefaciens FZB42 on the indigenous rhizosphere and phyllosphere community of greenhouse-grown lettuce at two plant stages. The rhizosphere and phyllosphere gammaproteobacterial microbiomes of lettuce plants showed clear differences in their overall and core microbiome composition as well as in corresponding diversity indices. The rhizosphere was dominated by Xanthomonadaceae (48%) and Pseudomonadaceae (37%) with Rhodanobacter, Pseudoxanthomonas, Dokdonella, Luteimonas, Steroidobacter, Thermomonas as core inhabitants, while the dominating taxa associated to phyllosphere were Pseudomonadaceae (54%), Moraxellaceae (16%) and Enterobacteriaceae (25%) with Alkanindiges, Pantoea and a group of Enterobacteriaceae unclassified at genus level. The preferential occurrence of enterics in the phyllosphere was the most significant difference between both habitats. Additional enhancement of enterics on the phyllosphere was observed in bottom rot diseased lettuce plants, while Acinetobacter and Alkanindiges were identified as indicators of healthy plants. Interestingly, the microbial diversity was enhanced by treatment with both the pathogen, and the co-inoculated biological control agent. The highest impact and bacterial diversity was found by Rhizoctonia inoculation, but FZB42 lowered the impact of Rhizoctonia on the microbiome. This study shows that the indigenous microbiome shifts as a consequence to pathogen attack but FZB42 can compensate these effects, which supports their role as biocontrol agent and suggests a novel mode of action.

Biological Control Potential of Two Streptomyces Isolates on Rhizoctonia solani, the Causal Agent of Damping-off of Sugar Beet  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Biological control of sugar beet damping-off of Rhizoctonia solani by two Streptomyces isolates (S2 and C was evaluated in this study. The in vitro antagonism assays showed that active isolates had inhibitory effects on mycelium growth of the three R. solani AG-4 isolates (Rs1, Rs2 and Rs3. Soil treatment either with isolate S2 or C formulation inhibited the disease completely and increased seedling stand in infected and uninfected treatments significantly (p<0.05. Compared to controls, all treatments containing bacteria had enhanced shoot and root dry weight and root density. Both bacterial isolates maintained normal growth in pH ranges of 5.6, 7.2 and 8.0 at 29°C. Isolate C grew in pH ranges 5.6, 7.2 and 8.0 at 23-37°C, isolate S2 grew at 18-37°C in pH 5.6-8.0 but did not grow in acidic medium at 37°C. When pH decreased to 5.0, growth of C decreased and S2 inhibited. To elucidate the mode of antagonism, chitinase activity and siderophore production were evaluated. Both isolates showed chitinase activity on medium containing colloidal chitin. Biosynthesis of siderophore was detectable in isolate C but not in S2. The results of this study showed that these isolates had antifungal activities by production of siderophore and chitinase.

The adaptive potential of a plant pathogenic fungus, Rhizoctonia solani AG-3, under heat and fungicide stress.  

Science.gov (United States)

The ability to improve fitness via adaptive evolution may be affected by environmental change. We tested this hypothesis in an in vitro experiment with the plant pathogen Rhizoctonia solani Anastomosis Group 3 (AG-3), assessing genetic and environmental variances under two temperatures (optimal and higher than optimal) and three fungicide concentrations (no fungicide, low and high concentration of a copper-based fungicide). We measured the mean daily growth rate, the coefficient of variation for genotypic (I (G)) and environmental variance (I (E)) in growth, and broad-sense heritability in growth. Both higher temperature and increased fungicide concentration caused a decline in growth, confirming their potential as stressors for the pathogen. All types of standardized variances in growth-I (G), phenotypic variance, and I (E) as a trend-increased with elevated stress. However, heritability was not significantly higher under enhanced stress because the increase in I (G) was counterbalanced by somewhat increased I (E). The results illustrate that predictions for adaptation under environmental stress may depend on the type of short-term evolvability measure. Because mycelial growth is linked to fitness, I (G) reflects short-term evolvability better than heritability, and it indicates that the evolutionary potential of R. solani is positively affected by stress.

We examined basal defense responses and cytomolecular aspects of riboflavin-induced resistance (IR) in sugar beet-Rhizoctonia solani pathsystem by investigating H(2)O(2) burst, phenolics accumulation and analyzing the expression of phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) and peroxidase (cprx1) genes. Riboflavin was capable of priming plant defense responses via timely induction of H(2)O(2) production and phenolics accumulation. A correlation was found between induction of resistance by riboflavin and upregulation of PAL and cprx1 which are involved in phenylpropanoid signaling and phenolics metabolism. Application of peroxidase and PAL inhibitors suppressed not only basal resistance, but also riboflavin-IR of sugar beet to the pathogen. Treatment of the leaves with each inhibitor alone or together with riboflavin reduced phenolics accumulation which was correlated with higher level of disease progress. Together, these results demonstrate the indispensability of rapid H(2)O(2) accumulation, phenylpropanoid pathway and phenolics metabolism in basal defense and riboflavin-IR of sugar beet against R. solani.

The complete genomic sequence of a novel mycovirus from Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA strain B275.  

Science.gov (United States)

The complete genome of a novel mycovirus, Rhizoctonia solani dsRNA virus 1 (RsRV1) was sequenced and analyzed. It is composed of two dsRNA genome segments, 2379 bp and 1811 bp in length, which were referred to as RsRV1-1 and RsRV1-2, respectively. RsRV1-1 contains a single open reading frame (ORF1), which has a conserved RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) domain, whereas RsRV1-2 contains a single ORF2, which might encode a multifunctional protein. The genome organization of RsRV1 is similar to that of members of the family Partitiviridae. However, phylogenetic analysis indicated that RsRV1 formed a distinct clade together with three other unclassified viruses, suggesting that RsRV1 may belong to a new family of dsRNA mycoviruses. This is the first report of the full-length nucleotide sequence of a novel dsRNA mycovirus, RsRV1, infecting R. solani AG-1 IA strain B275, the causal agent of rice sheath blight. PMID:23443932

Primary study on mode of action for macrocyclic fungicide candidates (7B3, D1) against Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn.  

Science.gov (United States)

A novel macrolactam fungicide candidate (7B3) and a novel aza-macrolactone fungicide candidate (D1) were designed and synthesized, and the bioassay showed that both displayed excellent fungicidal activity against Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn. To elucidate the biochemical mode of action of the two compounds against R. solani and illustrate the similarities and differences of action mechanism resulting from subtle differences in structure of the two compounds, the effects of the two compounds on the ultrastructure of hyphae, electrolyte leakage, and respiration of mycelia cell suspension caused by 7B3 or D1 were studied. The results showed that the two compounds had very similar modes of action. Both induced irregular swelling of hyphae, vacuolation of cytoplasm, and thickening of cell wall. The conductivity of mycelia cell suspension increased in the presence of 7B3 or D1, which indicated that the two compounds had a similar effect on cell membrane permeability. In addition, both 7B3 and D1 were insufficient in inhibiting the respiration of mycelia. PMID:20050666

Potential for the integration of biological and chemical control of sheath blight disease caused by Rhizoctonia solani on rice.  

Science.gov (United States)

Biological control using antagonistic microbes to minimize the use of chemical pesticides has recently become more prevalent. In an attempt to find an integrated control system for sheath blight, caused by Rhizoctonia solani in rice, Streptomyces philanthi RM-1-138, commercial formulations of Bacillus subtilis as Larminar® and B. subtilis strain NSRS 89-24+MK-007 as Biobest® and chemical fungicides including carbendazim®, validamycin®, propiconazole® and mancozeb® were applied alone and in combination with S. philanthi RM-1-138. In vitro experiments showed that all treatments tested did provide some control against mycelial growth and sclerotia production by R. solani PTRRS-9. In addition, the four chemical fungicides had no detrimental effects on S. philanthi RM-1-138 even at high concentrations (up to 100 ?g/ml). The efficacy of S. philanthi RM-1-138, the commercial formulations of B. subtilis, chemical fungicides alone or in combination with S. philanthi RM-1-138 was also tested in a greenhouse experiment against sheath blight disease on rice plants. All treatments showed some protection of rice for sheath blight by 47-60 % when carbendazim® was applied alone and up to 74 % when combined with S. philanthi RM-1-138. PMID:23653261

Efecto de algunos fungicidas sobre la interacción Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn-Micorriza vesículo arbuscular en soya, Glycine max Merril  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available En el campo se dispuso de dos preparaciones de suelo: natural y desinfectado químicamente (Ditrapex-CE y en el invernadero de suelo esterilizado con vapor. Se utilizaron los fungicidas Propamocarb, SN-84364, PCNB y Vitavax-300. Se contó con la flora micorrizógena natural y una cepa introducida, Glomus manihotis. R. solani disminuyó en un 50 % la emergencia de la soya, comportándose más agresivo en suelo desinfectado. En los primeros 15 días su ataque se incrementó y redujo el desarrollo de MVA en suelo natural. Al avanzar la edad de la planta decreció su infección. Con relación a la MVA la tendencia es contraria. La presencia de la MVA, incluyendo G. manihotis no incrementó significativamente la materia seca y el rendimiento de la soya. Al desinfectar el suelo los fungicidas afectaron negativamente la infección micorrizógena, mientras que en suelo natural no sucedió este fenómeno, al contrario SN-84364 incrementó su presencia. Este producto es el que menos afecta la simbiosis en el suelo desinfectado. Los fungicidas SN-84364 y PCNB mostraron gran especificidad contra R. solani y Vitavax-300 mayor espectro de acción.With the object to evaluate in the soybeans crop behavior in the interaction of Rhizoctonia solani, vesicular-arbuscular mycorrhizae (VAM and fungicides used to treatment of seed, two different soil preparations were used in the field trials: natural and chemically disinfected (Ditrapex-CE and under greenhouse: using vapor- sterilized. Was utilized the fungicides Propamocarb, SN-84364, PCNB y Vitavax- 300. Be had into account the natural mycorrhizal flora and a source of Glomus manihotis introduced. R. solani reduced the emergence of soybean by 50%, the above-metioned pathogen was more agressive in disinfected soil. In the 15 days first the attack increased and reduced the VAM development in the natural soil. With the age of the plant the pathogen infection decreased. With relation by VAM is contrary the tendency. The presence of VAM, G. manihotis including, not increased significantly the dry mass and yield of the soybean. The fungicides diminished the VAM infection in both chemically and physically disinfected soil, whereas this does not ocurr in natural soil,SN-84364, on the other hand, increased the VAM infection. This product affected least the simbiosis in the disinfected soil. SN-84364 and PCNB exhibitited their great especifity against R. solani and Vitavax-300 a greater spectrum of action.

The Interaction Pattern between a Homology Model of 40S Ribosomal S9 Protein of Rhizoctonia solani and 1-Hydroxyphenaize by Docking Study  

Science.gov (United States)

1-Hydroxyphenazine (1-OH-PHZ), a natural product from Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain SD12, was earlier reported to have potent antifungal activity against Rhizoctonia solani. In the present work, the antifungal activity of 1-OH-PHZ on 40S ribosomal S9 protein was validated by molecular docking approach. 1-OH-PHZ showed interaction with two polar contacts with residues, Arg69 and Phe19, which inhibits the synthesis of fungal protein. Our study reveals that 1-OH-PHZ can be a potent inhibitor of 40S ribosomal S9 protein of R. solani that may be a promising approach for the management of fungal diseases.

Molecular diversity analysis of Rhizoctonia solani isolates infecting various pulse crops in different agro-ecological regions of India.  

Science.gov (United States)

Genetic diversity of 89 isolates of Rhizoctonia solani isolated from different pulse crops representing 21 states from 16 agro-ecological regions of India, 49 morphological, and 7 anastomosis groups (AGs) was analyzed using 12 universal rice primers (URPs), 22 random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD), and 23 inter-simple sequence repeats (ISSR) markers. Both URPs and RAPD markers provided 100 % polymorphism with the bands ranging from 0.1 to 5 kb in size, whereas ISSR markers gave 99.7 % polymorphism with the bands sizes ranging from 0.1 to 3 kb. The marker URP 38F followed by URP13R, URP25F, and URP30F, RAPD marker R1 followed by OPM6, A3 and OPA12 and ISSR3 followed by ISSR1, ISSR4, and ISSR20 produced the highest number of amplicons. R. solani isolates showed a high level of genetic diversity. Unweighted pair group method with an arithmetic average (UPGMA) analysis grouped the isolates into 7 major clusters at 35 % genetic similarity using the three sets of markers evaluated. In spite of using three different types of markers, about 95 % isolates shared common grouping patterns. The majority of the isolates representing various AGs were grouped together into different sub-clusters using all three types of markers. Molecular groups of the isolates did not correspond to agro-ecological regions or states and crops of the origin. An attempt was made for the first time in the present study to determine the genetic diversity of R. solani populations isolated from different pulse crops representing various AGs and agro-ecological regions.

Effects of methamidophos on the community structure, antagonism towards Rhizoctonia solani, and phlD diversity of soil Pseudomonas.  

Science.gov (United States)

A microcosm incubation study using an aquic brown soil from northeast China (a Cambisol in the UN Food and Agriculture Organization FAO Soil Taxonomy) was conducted to examine the effects of different concentrations (0, 50, 150, and 250 mg kg(-1)) of methamidophos (O,S-dimethyl phosphoramidothioato) on Pseudomonas, one of the most important gram-negative bacteria in soil. Amplified ribosomal DNA restriction analysis (ARDRA) was performed to study the Pseudomonas community structure, an in vitro assay was made to test the antagonistic activity of isolated Pseudomonas strains against soil-borne Rhizoctonia solani, a major member of the pathogens highly related to soil-borne plant diseases, and special primer amplification and sequencing were performed to investigate the diversity of phlD, an essential gene in the biosynthesis of 2, 4-diacetylphloroglucinol (2, 4-DAPG), which has biocontrol activity in phlD(+)isolates. With exposure to increasing methamidophos concentrations, the total number of soil Pseudomonas ARDRA patterns decreased significantly, but with less change in the same treatments over 1, 3, and 5 weeks of incubation. The number of isolated Pseudomonas strains with antagonistic activity against R. solani as well as the diversity and appearance frequency of the strains' phlD gene also decreased with increasing concentrations of methamidophos, especially at high methamidophos concentrations. Applying methamidophos could increase the risk of soil-borne plant diseases by decreasing the diversity of the soil Pseudomonas community and the amount of R. solani antagonists, particularly those with the phlD gene.

Identification of Rhizoctonia solani associated with soybean in Brazil by rDNA-ITS sequences Identificação de Rhizoctonia solani associada à soja no Brasil através de seqüências da região rDNA-ITS  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The aim of this study was to identify isolates of Rhizoctonia solani causing hypocotyl rot and foliar blight in soybean (Glycine max in Brazil by the nucleotide sequences of ITS-5.8S regions of rDNA. The 5.8S rDNA gene sequence (155 bp was highly conserved among all isolates but differences in length and nucleotide sequence of the ITS1 and ITS2 regions were observed between soybean isolates and AG testers. The similarity of the nucleotide sequence among AG-1 IA isolates, causing foliar blight, was 95.1-100% and 98.5-100% in the ITS1 and ITS2 regions, respectively. The nucleotide sequence similarity among subgroups IA, IB and IC ranged from 84.3 to 89% in ITS1 and from 93.3 to 95.6% in ITS2. Nucleotide sequence similarity of 99.1% and 99.3-100% for ITS1 and ITS2, respectively, was observed between AG-4 soybean isolates causing hypocotyl rots and the AG-4 HGI tester. The similarity of the nucleotide sequence of the ITS-5.8S rDNA region confirmed that the R. solani Brazilian isolates causing foliar blight are AG-1 IA and isolates causing hypocotyl rot symptoms are AG-4 HGI. The ITS-5.8S rDNA sequence was not determinant for the identification of the AG-2-2 IIIB R. solani soybean isolate.O objetivo deste estudo foi identificar, através da seqüência de nucleotídeos das regiões ITS-5.8S do rDNA, isolados de Rhizoctonia solani causadores de podridão de hipocótilos e de queima foliar em soja (Glycine max, no Brasil.

Severidade da mela da soja causada por Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA em função de doses de potássio Severity of hte foliar blight of the soylean caused by Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA infunction of doses of potassium  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available O fungo Rhizoctonia solani pertencente ao grupo de anastomose 1 IA (AG-1 IA é um dos patógenos mais importantes afetando a cultura da soja no Brasil. Este fungo causa queima da folha e/ou mela em soja, para a qual medidas de manejo cultural são consideradas alternativas importantes para controle antes do estabelecimento da doença. Há evidências de que a adubação potássica diminui substancialmente a severidade dos sintomas de várias doenças da soja como a queima foliar (Cercospora kikuchii, a seca da haste e da vagem (Phomopsis phaseoli var. sojae e o cancro da haste (Diaporthe phaseolorum f. sp. meridionalis. Apesar das evidências do efeito do potássio no controle de várias doenças da soja, não há informação na literatura sobre o efeito desse nutriente no controle da mela. A hipótese testada foi que a mela da soja pode ser controlada através de incrementos na adubação potássica. De maneira geral, concluiu-se que, sob condições de casa de vegetação, o incremento de K no solo não resultou no controle da mela da soja. É necessário, entretanto, confirmar esta observação conduzindo-se experimentos sob condições de campo, podendo-se incluir a avaliação do efeito da doença sob aspectos da produção.The fungus Rhizoctonia solani, belonging to anastomosis group 1IA (AG-1 IA is one of the most important pathogens affecting soybean in Brazil. This fungus causes aerial or foliar blight of soybean, and cultural measures are thought as important choices for the control before the establishment of the disease. Based on evidences that potassium amendments can substantially reduce the severity of several soybean diseases such as Cercospora leaf blight (Cercospora kikuchii, pod and stem blight (Phomopsis phaseoli var. sojae and stem canker (Diaporthe phaseolorum f. sp. meridionalis. Despite all evidence, there is no information in the literature about the effect of potassium controlling the soybean foliar blight. The hypothesis tested went that the foliar blight could be controlled by potassium amendments. In general, under controlled conditions, the increments of potassium in soil did not result in disease control. Therefore, to corroborate this observation it is necessary to conduct follow-up field experiments and to evaluate the effects of the soybean foliar blight and its impact on yield.

Biotic and abiotic factors associated with soil suppressiveness to Rhizoctonia solani  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Crop management may modify soil characteristics, and as a consequence, alter incidence of diseases caused by soilborne pathogens. This study evaluated the suppressiveness to R. solani in 59 soil samples from a microbasin. Soil sampling areas included undisturbed forest, pasture and fallow ground areas, annual crops, perennial crops, and ploughed soil. The soil samples were characterized according to abiotic variables (pH; electrical conductivity; organic matter content; N total; P; K; Ca; Mg; Al; H; S; Na; Fe; Mn; Cu; Zn; B; cation exchange capacity; sum of bases and base saturation and biotic variables (total microbial activity evaluated by the CO2 evolution and fluorescein diacetate hydrolysis; culturable bacterial, fungal, actinomycetes, protozoa, fluorescent Pseudomonas and Fusarium spp. communities. The contribution and relationships of these variables to suppression to R. solani were assessed by path analysis. When all samples were analyzed together, only abiotic variables correlated with suppression of R. solani, but the entire set of variables explained only 51% of the total variation. However, when samples were grouped and analyzed by vegetation cover, the set of evaluated variables in all cases accounted for more than 90% of the variation in suppression of the pathogen. In highly suppressive soils of forest and pasture/fallow ground areas, several abiotic variables and fluorescein diacetate hydrolysis correlated with suppression of R. solani and the set of variables explained more than 98% of suppressiveness.

Use of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in the control od root-knot disease complex in tomato: the effects of different inoculum levels of Meloidogyne javanica and Rhizoctonia solani  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available The potential impact of Pseudomons aeruginosa strain IE-6 as a biological control agent against Meloidogyne javanica at four inoculum densities (0, 250, 500 and 1000 eggs/plant and Rhizoctonia solani at three inoeulum levels (0, 1 and 3 ml culture suspension/kg of soil was examined on tomato in the greenhouse experiments. The biocontrol bacterium suppressed root infection caused by R. solani and M. javanica on tomato in both sterilized and non-sterilized soils. Root-rot infection increased with the increase in pathogen(s concentration. P. aeruginosa showed better biocontrol effects at low population levels of M.javanica and R. solani than at higher population densities of the pathogen(s. Root-rot disease severity was more pronounced in sterilized soil compared to the non-sterilized one. Soil infested with high population densities ofR. solani (3 ml /kg of soil and M. javanica (2000 eggs/pot resulted in complete mortality of tomato seedlings in sterilized soil, whereas some plants were found to survive in non-stenlized soil. There seems to be a correlation between population density of M. javanica and root colonization by R. solani. Root colonization by other three root-infecting fungi including Macrophomina phaseolina, Fusarium oxysporum and Fusarium solani was also lower in the presence of P. aeruginosa in non-sterilized soil. P. aeruginosa enhanced plant growth in both types of soil.

The Mechanism of Antifungal Action of a New Polyene Macrolide Antibiotic Antifungalmycin 702 from Streptomyces padanus JAU4234 on the Rice Sheath Blight Pathogen Rhizoctonia solani  

Science.gov (United States)

Antifungalmycin 702, a new polyene macrolide antibiotic produced by Streptomycespadanus JAU4234, has a broad antifungal activity and may have potential future agricultural and/or clinical applications. However, the mechanism of antifungal action of antifungalmycin 702 remains unknown. Antifungalmycin 702 strongly inhibited mycelial growth and sclerotia formation/germination of Rhizoctonia solani. When treated with antifungalmycin 702, the hyphae morphology of R. solani became more irregular. The membrane and the cellular organelles were disrupted and there were many vacuoles in the cellular space. The lesion in the plasma membrane was detected through the increase of membrane permeability, lipid peroxidation and leakage of cell constituents. In summary, antifungalmycin 702 may exert its antifungal activity against R. solani by changing the structure of cell membranes and the cytoskeleton and interacting with the organelles.

Divergence between sympatric rice- and maize-infecting populations of Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA from Latin America.  

Science.gov (United States)

ABSTRACT The basidiomycetous fungus Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group (AG)-1 IA is a major pathogen in Latin America causing sheath blight (SB) of rice. Particularly in Venezuela, the fungus also causes banded leaf and sheath blight (BLSB) on maize, which is considered an emerging disease problem where maize replaced traditional rice-cropping areas or is now planted in adjacent fields. Our goals in this study were to elucidate (i) the effects of host specialization on gene flow between sympatric and allopatric rice and maize-infecting fungal populations and (ii) the reproductive mode of the fungus, looking for evidence of recombination. In total, 375 isolates of R. solani AG1 IA sampled from three sympatric rice and maize fields in Venezuela (Portuguesa State) and two allopatric rice fields from Colombia (Meta State) and Panama (Chiriquí State) were genotyped using 10 microsatellite loci. Allopatric populations from Venezuela, Colombia, and Panama were significantly differentiated (Phi(ST) of 0.16 to 0.34). Partitioning of the genetic diversity indicated differentiation between sympatric populations from different host species, with 17% of the total genetic variation distributed between hosts while only 3 to 6% was distributed geographically among the sympatric Venezuelan fields. We detected symmetrical historical migration between the rice- and the maize-infecting populations from Venezuela. Rice- and maize-derived isolates were able to infect both rice and maize but were more aggressive on their original hosts, consistent with host specialization. Because the maize- and rice-infecting populations are still cross-pathogenic, we postulate that the genetic differentiation was relatively recent and mediated via a host shift. An isolation with migration analysis indicated that the maize-infecting population diverged from the rice-infecting population between 40 and 240 years ago. Our findings also suggest that maize-infecting populations have a mainly recombining reproductive system whereas the rice-infecting populations have a mixed reproductive system in Latin America.

Induction of defense response against Rhizoctonia solani in cucumber plants by endophytic bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis GS1.  

Science.gov (United States)

An endophytic bacterium, Bacillus thuringiensis GS1, was isolated from bracken (Pteridium aquilinum) and found to have maximal production of chitinase (4.3 units/ml) at 5 days after culture. This study investigated the ability of B. thuringiensis GS1 to induce resistance to Rhizoctonia solani KACC 40111 (RS) in cucumber plants. Chitinase activity was greatest in RS-treated plants at 4 days. beta-1,3- Glucanase activity was highest in GS1-treated plants at 5 days. Guaiacol peroxidase (GPOD) activity increased continuously in all treated plants for 5 days. Ascorbate peroxidase (APX) activity in RS-treated plants was increased 1.5-fold compared with the control at 4 days. Polyphenol oxidase (PPO) activity in RS-treated plants was increased 1.5-fold compared with the control at 3 days. At 5 days after treatment, activity staining revealed three bands with chitinase activity (Ch1, Ch2, and Ch3) on SDSPAGE of cucumber plants treated with GS1+RS, whereas only one band was observed for RS-treated plants (Ch2). One GPOD isozyme (Gp1) was also observed in response to treatment with RS and GS1+RS at 4 days. One APX band (Ap2) was present on the native-PAGE gel of the control, and GS1- and GS1+RS-treated plants at 1 day. PPO bands (Po1 and Po2) from RS- and GS1+RS-treated plants were stronger than in the control and GS1-treated plants upon native-PAGE at 5 days. Taken together, these results indicate that the induction of PR proteins and defense-related enzymes by B. thuringiensis GS1 might have suppressed the damping-off caused by R. solani KACC 40111 in cucumber plants.

Full Text Available A study was conducted to evaluate the effects on the development of root rot on common bean, cv. 'Dufrix' after treatment with four volumes of water (0, 30%, 60%, and 90%, v/w added to rice grains previously immersed in water for 24 hours before autoclaving and colonization of grains by Rhizoctoniasolani AG-4. Colonized rice grains and non-infested rice grains were mixed in pots with sterilized soil and sand (2:1, where beans were sown. Based on results of area under plant emergence curve, plant height, plant dry weight, and disease severity, we conclude that inoculum is more effective in causing disease when no water is added to the rice grains before autoclaving.Foi conduzido um estudo com o objetivo de avaliar os efeitos de quatro volumes de água (0, 30%, 60% e 90%, v/p adicionados a grãos de arroz previamente embebidos em água por 24 horas antes de eles serem autoclavados e colonizados por Rhizoctonia solani sobre o desenvolvimento da podridão-radicular de feijão, cv. 'Dufrix'. Grãos de arroz colonizados e não colonizados foram misturados em vasos contendo substrato de solo e areia (2:1, com posterior semeadura de feijão. Baseados nos resultados de área abaixo da curva de emergência das plantas, altura das plantas, massa de plantas secas e severidade da doença, conclui-se que o inóculo é mais eficiente em causar doença quando não se adiciona água aos grãos de arroz antes de eles serem autoclavados.

Responses of 2 epiphytic yeasts to foliar infection by Rhizoctonia solani or mechanical wounding on the phylloplane of tall fescue.  

Science.gov (United States)

A growth-chamber experiment was conducted to determine how foliar disease or wounding affects the ability of 2 phylloplane yeasts (Rhodotorula glutinis and Cryptococcus laurentii) to colonize leaves of tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea). Yeasts were applied separately and together onto healthy leaves, leaves infected with Rhizoctonia solani (diseased), and mechanically bruised (wounded) leaves. In all 3 trials, the leaf disturbance treatment significantly affected the abundance of yeast on the phylloplane of tall fescue. Yeast abundance on the diseased or wounded leaves was significantly greater than on the nontreated, healthy leaves. In 2 of the 3 trials, the yeast species applied also had a significant affect on yeast abundance. Typically, R. glutinis was significantly more abundant than C. laurentii when applied individually, but not significantly greater than the total yeast colony-forming units of the co-inoculated treatment. When the 2 yeasts were co-inoculated onto the leaves, R. glutinis comprised 89.7%, 75.4%, and 67.6% of the recovered yeast colony-forming units on healthy, diseased, and wounded leaves, respectfully. Our data suggest that these 2 species of yeasts will differentially colonize compromised leaf tissue with disease or wounds favoring populations of R. glutinis over C. laurentii. PMID:19935888

Septal Pore Cap Protein SPC18, Isolated from the Basidiomycetous Fungus Rhizoctonia solani, Also Resides in Pore Plugs?  

Science.gov (United States)

The hyphae of filamentous fungi are compartmentalized by septa that have a central pore. The fungal septa and septum-associated structures play an important role in maintaining cellular and intrahyphal homeostasis. The dolipore septa in the higher Basidiomycota (i.e., Agaricomycotina) are associated with septal pore caps. Although the ultrastructure of the septal pore caps has been studied extensively, neither the biochemical composition nor the function of these organelles is known. Here, we report the identification of the glycoprotein SPC18 that was found in the septal pore cap-enriched fraction of the basidiomycetous fungus Rhizoctonia solani. Based on its N-terminal sequence, the SPC18 gene was isolated. SPC18 encodes a protein of 158 amino acid residues, which contains a hydrophobic signal peptide for targeting to the endoplasmic reticulum and has an N-glycosylation motif. Immunolocalization showed that SPC18 is present in the septal pore caps. Surprisingly, we also observed SPC18 being localized in some plugs. The data reported here strongly support the hypothesis that septal pore caps are derived from endoplasmic reticulum and are involved in dolipore plugging and, thus, contribute to hyphal homeostasis in basidiomycetous fungi.

FT-ICR/MS and GC-EI/MS Metabolomics Networking Unravels Global Potato Sprout's Responses to Rhizoctonia solani Infection  

Science.gov (United States)

The complexity of plant-pathogen interactions makes their dissection a challenging task for metabolomics studies. Here we are reporting on an integrated metabolomics networking approach combining gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) with Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance/mass spectrometry (FT-ICR/MS) and bioinformatics analyses for the study of interactions in the potato sprout-Rhizoctonia solani pathosystem and the fluctuations in the global metabolome of sprouts. The developed bioanalytical and bioinformatics protocols provided a snapshot of the sprout's global metabolic network and its perturbations as a result of pathogen invasion. Mevalonic acid and deoxy-xylulose pathways were substantially up-regulated leading to the biosynthesis of sesquiterpene alkaloids such as the phytoalexins phytuberin, rishitin, and solavetivone, and steroidal alkaloids having solasodine and solanidine as their common aglycons. Additionally, the perturbation of the sprout's metabolism was depicted in fluctuations of the content of their amino acids pool and that of carboxylic and fatty acids. Components of the systemic acquired resistance (SAR) and hypersensitive reaction (HR) such as azelaic and oxalic acids were detected in increased levels in infected sprouts and strategies of the pathogen to overcome plant defense were proposed. Our metabolic approach has not only greatly expanded the multitude of metabolites previously reported in potato in response to pathogen invasion, but also enabled the identification of bioactive plant-derived metabolites providing valuable information that could be exploited in biotechnology, biomarker-assisted plant breeding, and crop protection for the development of new crop protection agents.

Characterization of the arom gene in Rhizoctonia solani, and transcription patterns under stable and induced hypovirulence conditions.  

Science.gov (United States)

The quinate pathway is induced by quinate in the wild-type virulent Rhizoctonia solani isolate Rhs 1AP but is constitutive in the hypovirulent, M2 dsRNA-containing isolate Rhs 1A1. Constitutive expression of the quinate pathway results in downregulation of the shikimate pathway, which includes the pentafunctional arom gene in Rhs 1A1. The arom gene has 5,323 bp including five introns as opposed to a single intron found in arom in ascomycetes. A 199-bp upstream sequence has a GC box, no TATAA box, but two GTATTAGA repeats. The largest arom transcript is 5,108 nucleotides long, excluding the poly(A) tail. It contains an open reading frame of 4,857 bases, coding for a putative 1,618-residue pentafunctional AROM protein. A Kozak sequence (GCGCCATGG) is present between +127 and +135. The 5'-end of the arom mRNA includes two nucleotides (UA) that are not found in the genomic sequence, and are probably added post-transcriptionally. Size and sequence heterogeneity were observed at both 5'- and 3'-end of the mRNA. Northern blot and suppression subtractive hybridization analyses showed that presence of a low amount of quinate, inducer of the quinate pathway, resulted in increased levels of arom mRNA, consistent with the compensation effect observed in ascomycetes.

Silício alterando compostos derivados da pirólise de bainhas foliares de plantas de arroz infectadas por Rhizoctonia solani / Silicon altering compounds derived from the pyrolyses of leaf sheaths of rice plants infected with Rhizoctonia solani  

Scientific Electronic Library Online (English)

Full Text Available SciELO Brazil | Language: Portuguese Abstract in portuguese Este trabalho teve como objetivo elucidar, por meio da pirólise analítica acoplada à cromatografia gasosa e espectrometria de massa, alterações na composição química da lignina nas bainhas de plantas de arroz das cultivares BR-Irga 409 e Labelle supridas ou não com silício (Si) e infectadas por Rhiz [...] octonia solani. A concentração de Si nas bainhas das plantas supridas com esse elemento foi significativamente maior (2,7 dag kg-1) em comparação com as plantas não supridas (0,45 dag kg-1). Na presença de Si, a área abaixo da curva do progresso da queima das bainhas foi significativamente reduzida em 19 e 25%, respectivamente, para as plantas das cultivares BR-Irga-409 e Labelle em relação à ausência desse elemento na solução nutritiva. Com base nos espectros de massas obtidos, foram identificados 33 compostos, dos quais 10 foram produtos da degradação de carboidratos e 23 derivados da lignina. Dentre os derivados da lignina, oito compostos eram do tipo p-hidroxifenila, 11 compostos do tipo guaiacila e quatro compostos do tipo siringila. Nas bainhas das plantas das duas cultivares de arroz, supridas ou não com Si, a concentração de lignina (p-hidroxifenila, siringila (S) e guaiacila (G)) foi de, aproximadamente, 15%. Houve aumento na relação S/G apenas nas bainhas das plantas da cultivar BR-Irga 409 supridas com Si e infectadas por R. solani. A maior concentração de Si nas bainhas das plantas de arroz das duas cultivares, que por sua vez resultou em aumento na relação S/G, contribuiu para reduzir os sintomas da queima das bainhas. Abstract in english This study elucidated, through analytical pyrolysis coupled to gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, changes in the chemical composition of lignin on leaf sheaths of rice plants of cultivars BR-Irga 409 and Labelle supplied or non-supplied with silicon (Si) and infected with Rhizoctonia solani. [...] The Si concentration on leaf sheaths of plants supplied with this element was significatively higher (2.7 dag kg-1) as compared to non-supplied plants (0.45 dag kg-1). In the presence of Si, the area under leaf sheath blight progress curve was significantly reduced by 19 and 25% for plants from cultivars BR-Irga 409 and Labelle, respectively, in comparison to the absence of Si. Based on the mass spectra obtained, 33 compounds were identified, 10 of which were products from the degradation of carbohydrates and 23 derivate from lignin. From lignin derivatives, eight compounds were p-hydroxiphenil type, eleven compounds were guaiacyl type and four compounds were syringyl type. On leaf sheaths of both cultivars, the concentration of lignin (p-hydroxiphenil, syringyl (S) and guaiacyl (G)) was around 15%, regardless of Si. There was no increase in the S/G ratio only for the leaf sheaths of BR-Irga 409 supplied with Si and infected with R. solani. High Si concentration on leaf sheaths of both cultivars, which in turn resulted in an increase in the S/G ratio, contributed to reduce leaf sheath blight symptoms.

Phylogeography of the Solanaceae-infecting Basidiomycota fungus Rhizoctonia solani AG-3 based on sequence analysis of two nuclear DNA loci  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Abstract Background The soil fungus Rhizoctonia solani anastomosis group 3 (AG-3 is an important pathogen of cultivated plants in the family Solanaceae. Isolates of R. solani AG-3 are taxonomically related based on the composition of cellular fatty acids, phylogenetic analysis of nuclear ribosomal DNA (rDNA and beta-tubulin gene sequences, and somatic hyphal interactions. Despite the close genetic relationship among isolates of R. solani AG-3, field populations from potato and tobacco exhibit comparative differences in their disease biology, dispersal ecology, host specialization, genetic diversity and population structure. However, little information is available on how field populations of R. solani AG-3 on potato and tobacco are shaped by population genetic processes. In this study, two field populations of R. solani AG-3 from potato in North Carolina (NC and the Northern USA; and two field populations from tobacco in NC and Southern Brazil were examined using sequence analysis of two cloned regions of nuclear DNA (pP42F and pP89. Results Populations of R. solani AG-3 from potato were genetically diverse with a high frequency of heterozygosity, while limited or no genetic diversity was observed within the highly homozygous tobacco populations from NC and Brazil. Except for one isolate (TBR24, all NC and Brazilian isolates from tobacco shared the same alleles. No alleles were shared between potato and tobacco populations of R. solani AG-3, indicating no gene flow between them. To infer historical events that influenced current geographical patterns observed for populations of R. solani AG-3 from potato, we performed an analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA and a nested clade analysis (NCA. Population differentiation was detected for locus pP89 (?ST = 0.257, significant at P ST = 0.034, not significant. Results based on NCA of the pP89 locus suggest that historical restricted gene flow is a plausible explanation for the geographical association of clades. Coalescent-based simulations of genealogical relationships between populations of R. solani AG-3 from potato and tobacco were used to estimate the amount and directionality of historical migration patterns in time, and the ages of mutations of populations. Low rates of historical movement of genes were observed between the potato and tobacco populations of R. solani AG-3. Conclusion The two sisters populations of the basidiomycete fungus R. solani AG-3 from potato and tobacco represent two genetically distinct and historically divergent lineages that have probably evolved within the range of their particular related Solanaceae hosts as sympatric species.

Modulation of the phenylacetic acid metabolic complex by quinic acid alters the disease-causing activity of Rhizoctonia solani on tomato.  

Science.gov (United States)

The metabolic control of plant growth regulator production by the plant pathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani Kühn (teleomorph=Thanatephorus cucumeris (A.B. Frank) Donk) and consequences associated with the parasitic and saprobic activity of the fungus were investigated. Fourteen genetically distinct isolates of the fungus belonging to anastomosis groups (AG) AG-3, AG-4, and AG-1-IA were grown on Vogel's minimal medium N with and without the addition of a 25 mM quinic acid (QA) source of carbon. The effect of QA on fungal biomass was determined by measuring the dry wt of mycelia produced under each growth condition. QA stimulated growth of 13 of 14 isolates of R. solani examined. The production of phenylacetic acid (PAA) and the chemically related derivatives 2-hydroxy-PAA, 3-hydroxy-PAA, 4-hydroxy-PAA, and 3-methoxy-PAA on the two different media was compared by gas chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The presence of QA in the growth medium of R. solani altered the PAA production profile, limiting the conversion of PAA to derivative forms. The effect of QA on the ability of R. solani to cause disease was examined by inoculating tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) plants with 11 isolates of R. solani AG-3 grown on media with and without the addition of 25 mM QA. Mean percent survival of tomato plants inoculated with R. solani was significantly higher when the fungal inoculum was generated on growth medium containing QA. The results of this study support the hypotheses that utilization of QA by R. solani leads to reduced production of the plant growth regulators belonging to the PAA metabolic complex which can suppress plant disease development.

Los controles cultural y biológico constituyen las únicas herramientas orgánicas para su manejo. Acerca de la eficiencia de preparaciones vegetales, sólo se encuentra información de divulgación. Este trabajo evalúa el efecto de caldos fermentados de [...] cebolla sobre el crecimiento de Rhizoctonia solani y Sclerotium rolfsii y la incidencia de la enfermedad. Se obtuvieron caldo (B) y caldo esterilizado (SB), respectivamente, mediante hervido de trozos de cebollas y fermentación a temperatura ambiente, con o sin esterilización posterior. Se cultivaron los patógenos en APG suplementado con B y SB diluidos 1,7; 3,3; 8,3; 16,7 y 25%. Su crecimiento decreció con B al 8,3, 16,7 y 25%. La producción de esclerocios por S. rolfsii disminuyó con B, pero aumentó con SB. Penicillium purpurogenum, P. simplicissimum y Aspergillus niger aislados de B evidenciaron antibiosis, competencia e hiperparasitismo respecto de ambos patógenos. B y SB diluidos 10 y 50% fueron aplicados en almácigos de acelga (Beta vulgaris), tomate (Solanum lycopersicum), pimiento (Capsicum annuum) y berenjena (Solanum melongena) infestados. La pérdida de plántulas fue menor en el tratamiento con B al 50%, en relación al tratamiento con SB. Se concluye que la actividad antifúngica de B depende de su dilución y de su micota. La utilización de caldos de cebolla debería ser contemplada como alternativa para el manejo fitosanitario de bajo impacto ambiental. Se requiere continuar los estudios para completar el conocimiento acerca de los componentes químicos y microbiológicos de los caldos, y sus posibles cambios durante la fermentación.

Broth (B) and sterilized broth (SB) were respectively obtained by boiling chopped yellow onions in water, and incubating for 14 days at room temperature, with or without subsequent sterilization. The pathogens were grown on potato dextrose agar supplemented with B and SB, diluted at 1.7, 3.3, 8.3, 16.7 and 25% (v/v). Their growth was reduced by B at 8.3, 16.7 and 25%. Production of sclerotia by S. rolfsii was diminished by B, but stimulated by SB. Penicillium purpurogenum, P. simplicissimum and Aspergillus niger obtained from B behaved as antagonistic against both pathogens, showing antibiosis, competition and hyperparasitism in dual confrontations with them. Broth and SB at 10 and 50% dilutions were sprayed on chard (Beta vulgaris), tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), pepper (Capsicum annuum) and eggplant (Solanum melongena) seedlings cultivated in pathogen-colonized soil. Damping of incidence in the B treatment at 50% dilution was markedly lower than that in SB. It is concluded that B antifungal activity depends on its dilution and mycota. Broth sprays should be considered as a tool to control damping of in low-environment-impact crop production. Further studies are needed for a complete understanding of B chemical and microbiological components, as well as their changes during fermentation.

Os experimentos foram conduzidos em casa de vegetação, com 490 isolados. O tombamento das mudas foi avaliado uma semana após a aplicação à base das plântulas de substrato infestado com antagonista (1%) e patógeno (1%). Os doze isolados que proporcionaram mais de 85% de redução da doença foram testados em concentrações crescentes para o controle do patógeno (1%): 0,5, 1, 2, 3 e 4%. Também foi avaliado o efeito das combinações dos cinco isolados mais promissores. Os isolados mais efetivos foram identificados pelo sequenciamento da região espaçadores internos transcritos (ITS) do DNA ribossômico. Dos 490 isolados testados 44 (9%) reduziram o tombamento. As concentrações de antagonistas superiores a 2% foram as mais efetivas no controle da doença. Apenas duas combinações resultaram no aumento do controle da doença.

The experiments were carried out in a greenhouse with 490 isolates. The disease on cucumber seedlings was evaluated one week after the application of a commercial substrate infested with both antagonist (1%) and pathogen (1%) to the seedlings' root collar. The twelve isolates that conferred more than 85% of disease reduction were further evaluated in pathogen control (1%) at the concentrations 0.5, 1, 2, 3 and 4%. The effect of combining five of the most promising isolates in disease control was also evaluated. The most effective isolates were identified through the sequencing of the ribosomal internal transcribed spacers (ITS) region. Out of the 490 isolates tested 44 (9%) caused reduction of damping-off. Antagonist concentrations higher than 2% conferred the most effective disease control. Only two combinations of isolates resulted in increased disease control. The most effective isolates were identified as T. hamatum (IB08, IB30, IB60), T. harzianum (IB34, IB35), T. atroviride (IB13), T. spirale (IB16, IB24) and T. asperellum (IB44). Three isolates could not be identified at species level.

Effect of Foliar and Drench Applications of Acetyl Salicylic Acid on Control of Rhizoctonia solani and on Dry Matter Production and Partitioning of Potatoes  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Different concentrations of acetyl salicylic acid 1, 5 and 10 mM were applied through soil drench and foliar application at weekly intervals starting from emergence of the plants to investigate the effect of ASA on the control or Rhizoctonia solani and on general growth responses. Application of ASA did not influence the development of stem canker. Increasing concentrations of ASA produced reductions in tuber fresh weight and in total and component part dry weights. A concentration of 10 mM increased main stem numbers significantly, although this concentration was some what phytotoxic.

Enzyme Diffusion from Trichoderma atroviride (= T. harzianum P1) to Rhizoctonia solani Is a Prerequisite for Triggering of Trichoderma ech42 Gene Expression before Mycoparasitic Contact  

Science.gov (United States)

A plate confrontation experiment is commonly used to study the mechanism by which Trichoderma spp. antagonize and parasitize other fungi. Previous work with chitinase gene expression (ech42) during the precontact period of this process in which cellophane and dialysis membranes separated Trichoderma harzianum and its host Rhizoctonia solani resulted in essentially opposite results. Here, we show that cellophane membranes are permeable to proteins up to at least 90 kDa in size but that dialysis membranes are not. ech42 was expressed during the precontact stage of the confrontation between Trichoderma atroviride and its host only if the cellophane was placed between the two fungi. These results are consistent with enzyme diffusion from T. atroviride to R. solani generating the trigger of ech42 gene expression.

Microbial L-phenylalanine ammonia-lyase. Purification, subunit structure and kinetic properties of the enzyme from Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

1. Phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (EC 4.3.1.5) was purified to homogeneity from the acetone-dried powders of the mycelial felts of the plant pathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani. 2. A useful modification in protamine sulphate treatment to get substantial purification of the enzyme in a single-step is described. 3. The purified enzyme shows bisubstrate activity towards L-phenylalanine and L-tyrosine. 4. It is sensitive to carbonyl reagents and the inhibition is not reversed by gel filtration. 5. The molecular weight of the enzyme as determined by Sephadex G-200 chromatography and sucrose-density-gradient centrifugation is around 330000. 6. The enzyme is made up of two pairs of unidentical subunits, with a molecular weight of 70000 (alpha) and 90000 (beta) respectively. 7. Studies on initial velocity versus substrate concentration have shown significant deviations from Michaelis-Menten kinetics. 8. The double-reciprocal plots are biphasic (concave downwards) and Hofstee plots show a curvilinear pattern. 9. The apparent Km value increases from 0.18 mM to as high as 5.0 mM with the increase in the concentration of the substrate and during this process the Vmax, increases by 2-2.5-fold. 10. The value of Hill coefficient is 0.5. 11. Steady-state rates of phenylalanine ammonia-lyase reaction in the presence of inhibitors like D-phenylalanine, cinnamic, p-coumaric, caffeic, dihydrocaffeic and phenylpyruvic acid have shown that only one molecule of each type of inhibitor binds to a molecule of the enzyme. These observations suggest the involvement of negative homotropic interactions in phenylalanine ammonia-lyase. 12. The enzyme could not be desensitized by treatment with HgCl2, p-chloromercuribenzoic acid or by repeated freezing and thawing.

ABSTRACT Sheath blight disease (SBD) on rice, caused by Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA, is one of the most devastating rice diseases on a global basis, including China (in Eastern Asia), the world's largest rice-growing country. We analyzed the population genetics of nine rice-infecting populations from China using nine microsatellite loci. One allopatric population from India (Southern Asia) was included in the analyses. In total, 300 different multilocus genotypes were found among 572 fungal isolates. Clonal fractions within rice fields were 16 to 95%, suggesting that sclerotia were a major source of primary inoculum in some fields. Global Phi(ST) statistics (Phi(ST) = 42.49; P

Monomeric L-amino acid oxidase-induced mitochondrial dysfunction in Rhizoctonia solani Reveals a novel antagonistic mechanism of Trichoderma harzianum ETS 323.  

Science.gov (United States)

The monomeric L-amino acid oxidase (mTh-LAAO) of Trichoderma harzianum ETS 323 has been suggested to antagonize Rhizoctonia solani by an unknown mechanism. Here, the mTh-LAAO-treated R. solani exhibited hyphal lysis and apoptotic characteristics such as DNA fragmentation, reactive oxygen species (ROS) accumulation, lipid peroxidation, and mitochondrial membrane potential depolarization. This hyphal lysis was suppressed by the mitochondria-dependent apoptosis inhibitor oligomycin while accompanied by reduction of ROS accumulation. This result suggested that mitochondria-mediated apoptosis in R. solani was involved in mTh-LAAO-induced growth inhibition, which was supported by the evidence of cytocheome c release and activation of caspases 9 and 3. Furthermore, the data indicated that the mTh-LAAO-induced fungal cell death was also closely interrelated with the interaction of mTh-LAAO with R. solani hyphal cell wall proteins. These results illuminate the biological function and mechanism underlying the antagonistic action of T. harzianum mTh-LAAO against fungal pathogens. PMID:22352318

GalNAc/Gal-binding Rhizoctonia solani agglutinin has antiproliferative activity in Drosophila melanogaster S2 cells via MAPK and JAK/STAT signaling.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani agglutinin, further referred to as RSA, is a lectin isolated from the plant pathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani. Previously, we reported a high entomotoxic activity of RSA towards the cotton leafworm Spodoptera littoralis. To better understand the mechanism of action of RSA, Drosophila melanogaster Schneider S2 cells were treated with different concentrations of the lectin and FITC-labeled RSA binding was examined using confocal fluorescence microscopy. RSA has antiproliferative activity with a median effect concentration (EC(50)) of 0.35 µM. In addition, the lectin was typically bound to the cell surface but not internalized. In contrast, the N-acetylglucosamine-binding lectin WGA and the galactose-binding lectin PNA, which were both also inhibitory for S2 cell proliferation, were internalized whereas the mannose-binding lectin GNA did not show any activity on these cells, although it was internalized. Extracted DNA and nuclei from S2 cells treated with RSA were not different from untreated cells, confirming inhibition of proliferation without apoptosis. Pre-incubation of RSA with N-acetylgalactosamine clearly inhibited the antiproliferative activity by RSA in S2 cells, demonstrating the importance of carbohydrate binding. Similarly, the use of MEK and JAK inhibitors reduced the activity of RSA. Finally, RSA affinity chromatography of membrane proteins from S2 cells allowed the identification of several cell surface receptors involved in both signaling transduction pathways. PMID:22529896

Full Text Available En este trabajo el objetivo fue estudiar la relación entre la supresión del ahogamiento causado por Rhizoctonia solani y la estructura de la comunidad bacteriana en sustratos orgánicos (con base en vermicomposta y composta, para el crecimiento de plántulas de tomate. Dicha estructura comunitaria se determinó mediante T-RFLP (Terminal Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphisms del gen ARNr 16S, con la enzima Hin6I. Análisis de componentes principales (PCA a partir de las abundancias relativas de los T-RFs (Fragmentos de Restricción Terminales predominantes, mostraron que los sustratos con tendencia supresiva al patógeno poseen comunidades bacterianas similares, indicando la existencia de una relación entre la estructura de la comunidad y la supresividad. Los T-RFs predominantes se relacionaron con secuencias obtenidas de una librería genómica del gen ribosomal ARNr 16S de un sustrato con tendencia supresiva. Dicho análisis de PCA reveló que entre los TRFs que contribuyen a la diferenciación de los sustratos con tendencias supresivas, se encuentran tres (64, 205 y 211 que corresponden a secuencias 16S de los siguientes géneros: Burkholderia, Duganella, Telluria, Janthinobacterium, Pseudmomonas, Stenotrophomonas y Xanthomonas. Tales géneros presentan especies con capacidad biocontroladora específica sobre el patógeno, por lo que estos resultados sugieren que los T-RFs (Hin6I 64, 205, 211 y otros, podrían ser utilizados como indicadores a priori de la capacidad supresiva de un sustrato al ahogamiento causado por Rhizoctonia solani.

Correlation between specific double-stranded (ds RNA elements and up- or down- regulation of virulence, laccase activity and mycelial growth of Rhizoctonia solani (AG2 isolates  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A search for double-stranded RNA (dsRNA was done in 18 isolates of the pathogenic basidiomycete Rhizoctonia solani (AG2 isolated from Iranian sugar beet fields. Nucleic acids were extracted from freeze-dried mycelia and dsRNA separated by cellulose CF-11 chromatography. The nature of dsRNA was confirmed by digestion with specific nuclease (RNase A. Electrophoretic bands of dsRNAs were detected on agarose gel in one to 10 Kb from eight isolates. The partial curing of dsRNA attempted to remove dsRNA by excising hyphal tips from PDA containing the cyclohexamide (75ppm and dsRNA removed from 4 isolates. Both the isolates associated with dsRNA and without dsRNA were studied in more detail. The isolates showed pronounced morphological changes, including increased mycelial growth in isolates 156, reduced virulence toward sugar beet in isolate 156, increased virulence in isolate 144, and decreased laccase activity in isolates 151, 156 and 144. The results suggest that double–stranded RNA (dsRNA viruses of isolate 156 are associated with hypovirulence. This indicates the potential of using dsRNA mycoviruses as biological control against Rhizoctonia solani (AG2.

High entomotoxicity and mechanism of the fungal GalNAc/Gal-specific Rhizoctonia solani lectin in pest insects.  

Science.gov (United States)

Whole insect assays where Rhizoctonia solani agglutinin (RSA) was fed to larval stages of the cotton leaf-worm Spodoptera littoralis and the pea aphid Acyrthosiphon pisum demonstrated a high concentration-dependent entomotoxicity, suggesting that this GalNAc/Gal-specific fungal lectin might be a good control agent for different pest insects. RSA at 10 mg/g in the solid diet of 2nd-instar caterpillars caused 84% weight reduction after 8 days with none of the caterpillars reaching the 4th-instar stage. In sucking aphids, 50% mortality was achieved after 3 days with 9 ?M of RSA in the liquid diet. Feeding of FITC-labeled RSA to both insect pest species revealed strong lectin binding at the apical/luminal side of the midgut epithelium with the brush border zone, suggesting the insect midgut as a primary insecticide target tissue for RSA. This was also confirmed with cell cultures in vitro, where there was high fluorescence binding at the microvillar zone with primary cultures of larval midgut columnar cells of S. littoralis, and also at the surface with the insect midgut CF-203 cell line without lectin uptake in the midgut cells. In vitro assays using insect midgut CF-203 cells, revealed that RSA was highly toxic with an EC50 of 0.3 ?M. Preincubation with GalNAc and saponin indicated that this action of RSA was carbohydrate-binding dependent and happened at the surface of the cells. Intoxicated CF-203 cells showed symptoms of apoptosis as nuclear condensation and DNA fragmentation, and this concurred with an increase of caspase-3/7, -8 and -9 activities. Finally, RSA affinity chromatography of membrane extracts of CF-203 cells followed by LC-MS/MS allowed the identification of 5747 unique peptides, among which four putatively glycosylated membrane proteins that are associated with apoptosis induction, namely Fas-associated factor, Apoptosis-linked gene-2, Neuroglian and CG2076, as potential binding targets for RSA. These data are discussed in relation to the physiological effects of RSA. PMID:23291362

Rice oxalate oxidase gene driven by green tissue-specific promoter increases tolerance to sheath blight pathogen (Rhizoctonia solani) in transgenic rice.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rice sheath blight, caused by the necrotrophic fungus Rhizoctonia solani, is one of the most devastating and intractable diseases of rice, leading to a significant reduction in rice productivity worldwide. In this article, in order to examine sheath blight resistance, we report the generation of transgenic rice lines overexpressing the rice oxalate oxidase 4 (Osoxo4) gene in a green tissue-specific manner which breaks down oxalic acid (OA), the pathogenesis factor secreted by R.?solani. Transgenic plants showed higher enzyme activity of oxalate oxidase (OxO) than nontransgenic control plants, which was visualized by histochemical assays and sodium dodecylsulphate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE). Transgenic rice leaves were more tolerant than control rice leaves to exogenous OA. Transgenic plants showed a higher level of expression of other defence-related genes in response to pathogen infection. More importantly, transgenic plants exhibited significantly enhanced durable resistance to R.?solani. The overexpression of Osoxo4 in rice did not show any detrimental phenotypic or agronomic effect. Our findings indicate that rice OxO can be utilized effectively in plant genetic manipulation for sheath blight resistance, and possibly for resistance to other diseases caused by necrotrophic fungi, especially those that secrete OA. This is the first report of the expression of defence genes in rice in a green tissue-specific manner for sheath blight resistance. PMID:23809026

Trichoderma harzianum ETS 323-mediated resistance in Brassica oleracea var. capitata to Rhizoctonia solani involves the novel expression of a glutathione S-transferase and a deoxycytidine deaminase.  

Science.gov (United States)

Plant interactions with microbial biocontrol agents are used as experimental models to understand resistance-related molecular adaptations of plants. In a hydroponic three-way interaction study, a novel Trichoderma harzianum ETS 323 mediated mechanism was found to induce resistance to Rhizoctonia solani infection in Brassica oleracea var. capitata plantlets. The R. solani challenge on leaves initiate an increase in lipoxygenase activity and associated hypersensitive tissue damage with characteristic "programmed cell death" that facilitate the infection. However, B. oleracea plantlets whose roots were briefly (6 h) colonized by T. harzianum ETS 323 developed resistance to R. solani infection through a significant reduction of the host hypersensitive tissue damage. The resistance developed in the distal leaf tissue was associated with the expression of a H(2)O(2)-inducible glutathione S-transferase (BoGST), which scavenges cytotoxic reactive electrophiles, and of a deoxycytidine deaminase (BoDCD), which modulates the host molecular expression and potentially neutralizes the DNA adducts and maintains DNA integrity. The cDNAs of BoGST and BoDCD were cloned and sequenced; their expressions were verified by reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction analysis and were found to be transcriptionally activated during the three-way interaction.

Effect of Trichoderma harzianum biomass and Bradyrhizobium sp. strain NC 92 to control leaf blight disease of bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea caused by Rhizoctonia solani in the field  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Four hundred and sixty two strains of Trichoderma spp. were isolated from 23 soil samples in which groundnut (Arachis hypogaea L. and bambara groundnut (Vigna subterranea L. had been planted in Songkhla, Phattalung, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Narathiwat and Yala provinces. These fungi were tested against Rhizoctonia solani, a causal agent of leaf blight of bambara groundnut, using dual culture technique on PDA medium. Among 462 isolates tested, 226 isolates had an ability to overgrow R. solani completely. Further testing found 13 isolates having the ability to parasitize mycelia of R. solani. Among these isolates, ThB-1-54 produced a cellulolytic enzyme on congo-red agar. This isolate was later identified as T. harzianum Rifai. In the field test, applying biomass of the isolate ThB-1-54 cultured on ground mesocarp fiber of oil palm, the combination of the isolate ThB-1-54 on ground mesocarp fiber of oil palm and Bradyrhizobium sp. (strain NC 92, or fungicide (iprodione had no effect on disease severity, yield, or the amount of total nitrogen content in stems or seeds of bambara groundnut plant.

Redox-active pyocyanin secreted by Pseudomonas aeruginosa 7NSK2 triggers systemic resistance to Magnaporthe grisea but enhances Rhizoctonia solani susceptibility in rice.  

Science.gov (United States)

Pseudomonas aeruginosa 7NSK2 induces resistance in dicots through a synergistic interaction of the phenazine pyocyanin and the salicylic acid-derivative pyochelin. Root inoculation of the monocot model rice with 7NSK2 partially protected leaves against blast disease (Magnaporthe grisea) but failed to consistently reduce sheath blight (Rhizoctonia solani). Only mutations interfering with pyocyanin production led to a significant decrease in induced systemic resistance (ISR) to M. grisea, and in trans complementation for pyocyanin production restored the ability to elicit ISR. Intriguingly, pyocyanin-deficient mutants, unlike the wild type, triggered ISR against R. solani. Hence, bacterial pyocyanin plays a differential role in 7NSK2-mediated ISR in rice. Application of purified pyocyanin to hydroponically grown rice seedlings increased H202 levels locally on the root surface as well as a biphasic H202 generation pattern in distal leaves. Co-application of pyocyanin and the antioxidant sodium ascorbate alleviated the opposite effects of pyocyanin on rice blast and sheath blight development, suggesting that the differential effectiveness of pyocyanin with respect to 7NSK2-triggered ISR is mediated by transiently elevated H202 levels in planta. The cumulative results suggest that reactive oxygen species act as a double-edged sword in the interaction of rice with the hemibiotroph M. grisea and the necrotroph R. solani. PMID:17153925

Surface motility in Pseudomonas sp DSS73 is required for efficient biological containment of the root-pathogenic microfungi Rhizoctonia solani and Pythium ultimum  

DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

Pseudomonas sp. DSS73 was isolated from the rhizoplane of sugar beet seedlings. This strain exhibits antagonism towards the root-pathogenic microfungi Pythium ultimum and Rhizoctonia solani. Production of the cyclic lipopeptide amphisin in combination with expression of flagella enables the growing bacterial culture to move readily over the surface of laboratory media. Amphisin is a new member of a group of dual-functioning compounds such as tensin, viscosin and viscosinamid that display both biosurfactant and antifungal properties. The ability of DSS73 to efficiently contain root-pathogenic microfungi is shown to arise from amphisin-dependent surface translocation and growth by which the bacterium can lay siege to the fungi. The synergistic effects of surface motility and synthesis of a battery of antifungal compounds efficiently contain and terminate growth of the microfungi.

Bioconversion of wheat straw and wheat straw components into single-cell protein. [Spicaria fusispora, Cochliobolus specifer, Myrothecium verrucaria, Rhizoctonia solani, and Gliocladium sp  

Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

Several fungi (Aspergillus niger, A. terreus, Cochliobolus specifer, Myrothecium verrucaria, Rhizoctonia solani, Spicaria fusispora, Penicillium sp., and Gliocladium sp.) were isolated from decomposing wheat straw and tested for their ability to utilize whole straw and its components, holocellulose (hemicellulose and cellulose) and cellulose, for the production of single-cell protein (SCP). C. specifer was the most efficient fungus for protein synthesis with the 3 substrates. Using KNO/sub 3/ as N source in mixtures of .04 g N/g substrate (0.04% wt./vol.) at pH 4.5, it was found that incubation periods of 3, 4, and 5 days were optimal for protein production on cellulose and holocellulose fractions, and whole straw, respectively. Whole native straw was the most recalcitrant to bioconversion into SCP; however, protein production was almost doubled when the lignin component was removed using a mixture of NaClO/sub 2/ and HOAc.

Determination of the Anastomosis Grouping and Virulence of Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn Isolates Associated with Bean Plants Grown in Samsun/Turkey  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available Anastomosis groupings and virulence of 229 Rhizoctonia solani isolates, obtained from bean plants and soils in Samsun province, were determined. About 59 % of the isolates belonged to anastomosis group AG 4, 31 % to AG 2-2 and the remaining 10 % to AG 5. All the isolates selected for the pathogenicity test were found to be virulent at varying degrees to eight plants from different families. Isolate HAF 1-3 belonging to AG 4 were found to be the most virulent isolate. Sugarbeet was the most susceptible plant species while corn and leek seemed to be rather resistant. The virulence of the isolates on different bean cultivars varied. AG 4 and AG 2-2 group isolates caused severe symptoms of root rot on all cultivars. AG 5 isolate was highly to moderately virulent regarding the susceptibility of the bean cultivars. Horoz was found to be the most susceptible bean cultivar.

This article reports on the most comprehensive population-based study, providing evidence on the distribution of R. solani AG s in Colombian potato fields. A total of 433 isolates were sampled from the main potato cropping areas in Colombia from 2005 to 2009. Isolates were assigned to AG s by conventional PCR assays using specific primers for AG -3, sequencing of the ITS -rDNA and hyphal interactions. Most of the isolates evaluated were assigned to AG -3PT (88.45%), and a few to AG -2-1 (2.54%). The remaining isolates were binucleate Rhizoctonia (AG -A, E, and I). Pathogenicity tests on the stems and roots of different plant species, including the potato, showed that AG -3PT affects the stems of solanaceous plants. In other plant species, damage was severe in the roots, but not the stems. AG -2-1 caused stem canker of Solanum tuberosum cv. Capiro and in R. raphanistrumi and B.campestris subsp. Rapa plantlets and root rot in other plants. The results of our study indicated that R. solani AG -3PT was the principal pathogen associated with potato stem canker and black scurf diseases of potatoes in Colombia

Distinctively variable sequence-based nuclear DNA markers for multilocus phylogeography of the soybean- and rice-infecting fungal pathogen Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available A series of multilocus sequence-based nuclear DNA markers was developed to infer the phylogeographical history of the Basidiomycetous fungal pathogen Rhizoctonia solani AG-1 IA infecting rice and soybean worldwide. The strategy was based on sequencing of cloned genomic DNA fragments (previously used as RFLP probes and subsequent screening of fungal isolates to detect single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs. Ten primer pairs were designed based on these sequences, which resulted in PCR amplification of 200-320 bp size products and polymorphic sequences in all markers analyzed. By direct sequencing we identified both homokaryon and heterokaryon (i.e. dikaryon isolates at each marker. Cloning the PCR products effectively estimated the allelic phase from heterokaryotic isolates. Information content varied among markers from 0.5 to 5.9 mutations per 100 bp. Thus, the former RFLP codominant probes were successfully converted into six distinctively variable sequence-based nuclear DNA markers. Rather than discarding low polymorphism loci, the combination of these distinctively variable anonymous nuclear markers would constitute an asset for the unbiased estimate of the phylogeographical parameters such as population sizes and divergent times, providing a more reliable species history that shaped the current population structure of R. solani AG-1 IA.

Molecular characterization of the pathogenic plant fungus Rhizoctonia solani (Ceratobasidiaceae) isolated from Egypt based on protein and PCR-RAPD profiles.  

Science.gov (United States)

Twenty-one isolates of Rhizoctonia solani were categorized into three anastomosis groups consisting of AG-4-HG-I (eight isolates), AG-2-2 (nine isolates) and AG-5 (four isolates). Their pathogenic capacities were tested on cotton cultivar Giza 86. Pre-emergence damping-off varied in response to the different isolates; however, the differences were not significant. Soluble proteins of the fungal isolates were electrophoresed using SDS-PAGE and gel electrophoreses. A dendrogram of the protein banding patterns by the UPGMA of arithmetic means placed the fungal isolates into distinct groups. There was no evidence of a relationship between protein dendrogram, anastomosis grouping or level of virulence or geographic origin. The dendrogram generated from these isolates based on PCR analysis with five RAPD-PCR primers showed high levels of genetic similarity among the isolates from the same geographical locations. There was partially relationship between the genetic similarity and AGs or level of virulence or geographic origin based on RAPD dendrogram. These results demonstrate that RAPD technique is a useful tool in determining the genetic characterization among isolates of R. solani. PMID:23096684

Antagonistic Potentials of Rhizosphere-associated Bacterial Isolates Against Soil-borne Diseases of Tomato and Pepper Caused by Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Rhizoctonia solani  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available By use of selective media, putative antagonist bacterial isolates were isolated from rhizosphere-associated soils from different parts of the Amik plain. Isolates to be tested were chosen in approximate proportion to their abundance on the plates. Selected 113 bacterial isolates were screened for in vitro antagonism towards two important soil-borne root infecting plant pathogens, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and Rhizoctonia solani by using dual culture test. From this test, significant numbers of bacterial isolates, but not the yeast, were found to produce inhibition zones by inhibiting the hyphal growth of fungal pathogens to a varying degree. On the basis of the result obtained from the preliminary screening test, isolates belonging to Bacillus spp. and Pseudomonas spp. found to be highly efficient against fungal pathogens used in the experiment. Among the inhibitory isolates, bacterial isolates AKB50 and AFP104 significantly suppressed hyphal growth of S. sclerotiorum and R. solani by 75.3 and 83.3%, respectively. This study indicates that selected bacterial strain have potential for controlling of soil-borne disease agents.

Transgenic rice with inducible ethylene production exhibits broad-spectrum disease resistance to the fungal pathogens Magnaporthe oryzae and Rhizoctonia solani.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rice blast (Magnaporthe oryzae) and sheath blight (Rhizoctonia solani) are the two most devastating diseases of rice (Oryza sativa), and have severe impacts on crop yield and grain quality. Recent evidence suggests that ethylene (ET) may play a more prominent role than salicylic acid and jasmonic acid in mediating rice disease resistance. In this study, we attempt to genetically manipulate endogenous ET levels in rice for enhancing resistance to rice blast and sheath blight diseases. Transgenic lines with inducible production of ET were generated by expressing the rice ACS2 (1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylic acid synthase, a key enzyme of ET biosynthesis) transgene under control of a strong pathogen-inducible promoter. In comparison with the wild-type plant, the OsACS2-overexpression lines showed significantly increased levels of the OsACS2 transcripts, endogenous ET and defence gene expression, especially in response to pathogen infection. More importantly, the transgenic lines exhibited increased resistance to a field isolate of R. solani, as well as different races of M. oryzae. Assessment of the growth rate, generational time and seed production revealed little or no differences between wild type and transgenic lines. These results suggest that pathogen-inducible production of ET in transgenic rice can enhance resistance to necrotrophic and hemibiotrophic fungal pathogens without negatively impacting crop productivity.

Biocontrol of Rhizoctonia solani damping-off and promotion of tomato plant growth by endophytic actinomycetes isolated from native plants of Algerian Sahara.  

Science.gov (United States)

Thirty-four endophytic actinomycetes were isolated from the roots of native plants of the Algerian Sahara. Morphological and chemical studies showed that twenty-nine isolates belonged to the Streptomyces genus and five were non-Streptomyces. All isolates were screened for their in vitro antifungal activity against Rhizoctonia solani. The six that had the greatest pathogen inhibitory capacities were subsequently tested for their in vivo biocontrol potential on R. solani damping-off in sterilized and non-sterilized soils, and for their plant-growth promoting activities on tomato seedlings. In both soils, coating tomato seeds with antagonistic isolates significantly reduced (P<0.05) the severity of damping-off of tomato seedlings. Among the isolates tested, the strains CA-2 and AA-2 exhibited the same disease incidence reduction as thioperoxydicarbonic diamide, tetramethylthiram (TMTD) and no significant differences (P<0.05) were observed. Furthermore, they resulted in a significant increase in the seedling fresh weight, the seedling length and the root length of the seed-treated seedlings compared to the control. The taxonomic position based on 16S rDNA sequence analysis and phylogenetic studies indicated that the strains CA-2 and AA-2 were related to Streptomyces mutabilis NBRC 12800(T) (100% of similarity) and Streptomyces cyaneofuscatus JCM 4364(T) (100% of similarity), respectively.

Impact of Gamma Irradiation Stresses II. Control of Sugarbeet Pathogens Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn and Sclerotium rolfsii Sacc.  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available To control the fungal pathogens attacked sugarbeet plant, we subjected R. solani and S. rolfsii to different gamma irradiation doses (0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 and 7.0 kGy for R. solani and 0.0, 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 kGy for S. rolfsii. The growth activities of R. solani were completely inhibited at dose 7.0 kGy, while S. rolfsii at 4.0 kGy. The infection percentage was inhibited with gamma irradiation doses increased for both R. solani and S. rolfsii. This was confirmed by the SDS-PAGE for cellular proteins of both R. solani and S. rolfsii, which showed a great variation in protein bands for the same fungus at different gamma irradiation doses. Finally, we can conclude that the gamma irradiation dose to control pathogenic fungi varies with different pathogenic fungi to control the pathogenicity of R. solani, we irradiate it at 7.0 kGy dose while at 4.0 kGy for S. rolfsii.

Hyphae-colonizing Burkholderia sp.--a new source of biological control agents against sheath blight disease (Rhizoctonia solani AG1-IA) in rice.  

Science.gov (United States)

Sheath blight infection of rice by Rhizoctonia solani Kühn AG1-IA often results in serious yield losses in intensive rice cultivation. Biological control agents (BCAs) have previously been isolated but poor efficiency is often observed when applied under field conditions. This study compares a traditional dual-culture plate assay and a new water-surface microcosm assay for isolation of antagonistic soil bacteria. In the water-surface microcosm assay, floating pathogen mycelium is used as a source for isolation of hyphae-colonizing soil bacteria (HCSB), which are subsequently screened for antagonism. Ten antagonistic soil bacteria (ASB) isolated from a variety of Vietnamese rice soils using dual-culture plates were found to be affiliated with Bacillus based on 16S rRNA gene sequencing. However, all the ASB isolates grew poorly and showed no antagonism in the water-surface microcosm assay. In contrast, 11 (out of 13) HCSB isolates affiliated with Burkholderia sp. all grew well by colonizing the hyphae in the microcosms. Two of the Burkholderia sp. isolates, assigned to B. vietnamiensis based on recA gene sequencing, strongly inhibited fungal growth in both the dual-culture and water-surface microcosm assays; HCSB isolates affiliated to other species or species groups showed limited or no inhibition of R. solani in the microcosms. Our results suggest that HCSB obtained from floating pathogen hyphae can be a new source for isolation of efficient BCAs against R. solani, as the isolation assay mimics the natural habitat for fungal-bacterial interaction in the fields.

Establishment and interpretation of the genome sequence of the phytopathogenic fungus Rhizoctonia solani AG1-IB isolate 7/3/14.  

Science.gov (United States)

Anastomosis group AG1-IB isolates of the anamorphic basidiomycetous fungus Rhizoctonia solani Kühn affect various agricultural and horticultural important crops including bean, rice, soybean, figs, hortensia, cabbage and lettuce. To gain insights into the genome structure and content, the first draft genome sequence of R. solani AG1-IB isolate 7/3/14 was established. Four complete runs on the Genome Sequencer (GS) FLX platform (Roche Applied Science) yielding approx. a 25-fold coverage of the R. solani genome were accomplished. Assembly of the sequence reads by means of the gsAssembler software version 2.6 applying the heterozygotic mode resulted in numerous contigs and scaffolds and a predicted size of 87.1 Mb for the diploid status of the genome. 'Contig-length vs. read-count' analysis revealed that the assembled contigs can be classified into five different groups. Detailed BLAST-analysis revealed that most contigs of group II feature high-scoring matches to other contigs of the same group suggesting that distinguishable allelic variants exist for many genes. Due to the supposed diploid and heterokaryotic nature of R. solani AG1-IB 7/3/14, this result has been anticipated. However, the heterokaryotic character of the isolate is not really supported by sequencing data obtained for the isolate R. solani AG1-IB 7/3/14. Coverage of group III contigs is twice as high as for group II contigs which can also be explained by the diploid status of the genome and indistinguishable alleles on homologous chromosomes. Assembly of sequence data led to the identification of the rRNA unit (group V contigs) and the mitochondrial (mt) genome (group IV contigs) which is a circular molecule of 162,751 bp in size featuring a GC-content of 36.4%. The R. solani 7/3/14 mt-genome is one of the largest fungal mitochondrial genomes known to date. Its large size essentially is due to the presence of numerous non-conserved hypothetical ORFs and introns. Gene prediction for the R. solani AG1-IB 7/3/14 genome was conducted by the Augustus Gene Prediction Software for Eukaryotes (version 2.6.) applying the parameter set for the fungus Coprinopsis cinerea okayama 7#130. Gene prediction and annotation provided first insights into the R. solani AG1-IB 7/3/14 gene structure and content. In total, 12,422 genes were predicted. The average number of exons per gene is five. Exons have a mean length of 214 bp, whereas introns on average are 66 bp in length. Annotation of the genome revealed that 4169 of 12,422 genes could be assigned to KOG functional categories. PMID:23280342

El propósito del presente trabajo fue el de establecer el posible papel de las quitinasas en un modelo de control, utilizando pregerminación controlada de semillas en presencia de Trichoderma koningii. Este método mostró ser eficiente para el control de Rhizoctonia solani y de Fusarium oxysporum en tomate. Al analizar los extractos y exudados de semillas y los extractos de suelo sembrado con semillas pregerminadas en presencia de T. koningii, se encontró que éstos presentaron niveles significativamente mayores de actividad endoquitinasa que los provenientes de semillas pregerminadas en ausencia del antagonista y que los provenientes de semillas no pregerminadas. Al evaluar in-vitro la actividad hidrolítica de dichos extractos y exudados, utilizando paredes celulares de R. solani y de Fusarium oxysporum, los provenientes de semillas pregerminadas en presencia de T. koningii también mostraron significativamente mayor actividad endoquitinasa que la presentada en los otros tratamientos. Se pudo concluir que la pregerminación controlada de semillas en presencia de T. koningii estimula la actividad endoquitinolítica de las semillas y que esta actividad quitinasa estuvo relacionada con la protección previamente obtenida. 

The present work intended to establish in a control model, the possible role of chitinases by using seed priming in the presence of Trichoderma koningii. This method showed to be efficient to control Rhizoctonia solani and Fusarium oxysporum in tomato. The analysis of seed extracts and exudates, and soil extracts from soil seeded with seeds primed in the presence of T. koningii showed high endochitinase activity in the samples. This activity was higher than that exhibited by samples from primed seeds without antagonist and unprimed seeds.   In vitro evaluation of the hydrolytic activity of the extracts and exudates were performed using F. oxysporum and R. solani cell walls. The results also showed that the samples from seeds primed in the presence of T. koningii exhibited higher endochitinase activity than the others. These data allowed us to conclude that seed priming in the presence of T. koningii promotes endochinolytic activity in seeds. It was also concluded that this chitinase activity is related with the protection previously observed.

Polymorphism of genes coding for nuclear 18S rRNA indicates genetic distinctiveness of anastomosis group 10 from other groups in the Rhizoctonia solani species complex.  

Science.gov (United States)

DNA polymorphism in the 18S nuclear rRNA gene region was investigated by using 11 restriction endonucleases for 161 isolates of 25 intraspecific groups (ISGs) representing 11 reported anastomosis groups (AGs) of Rhizoctonia solani. A PCR-based restriction mapping method in which enzymatically amplified DNA fragments and subfragments were digested with one or two restriction enzymes was employed. Four types of DNA restriction maps of this region were constructed for these 25 ISGs. Map type I of the 18S rDNA region was represented by isolates of a majority of R. solani ISGs. Map types II and III, represented by ISG 2E and 9 isolates and 5C isolates, respectively, differed from map I by the absence of one (map type II) or two (map type III) restriction sites. Map type IV, represented by ISG 10A and B (or AG 10) isolates, showed significant restriction site variations, with five enzymes in this region compared with those of the remaining ISGs or AGs. Ten of the 25 restriction sites in the 18S rRNA gene region were informative and selected for analysis. Previously reported restriction maps of the 5.8S rRNA gene region, including the internal transcribed spacers, were aligned with each other, and 12 informative restriction sites were identified. These data were used alone and in combination to evaluate group relationships. Analyses derived from these data sets by maximum parsimony and likelihood methods showed that AG 10 isolates were distinct and distantly related to the majority isolates of the other AGs of this species complex.

High-resolution mapping of Rsn1, a locus controlling sensitivity of rice to a necrosis-inducing phytotoxin from Rhizoctonia solani AG1-IA.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani is a necrotrophic fungal pathogen that causes disease on many crop-plant species. Anastomosis group 1-IA is the causal agent of sheath blight of rice (Oryza sativa L.), one of the most important rice diseases worldwide. R. solani AG1-IA produces a necrosis-inducing phytotoxin and rice cultivar's sensitivity to the toxin correlates with disease susceptibility. Unlike genetic analyses of sheath blight resistance where resistance loci have been reported as quantitative trait loci, phytotoxin sensitivity is inherited as a Mendelian trait that permits high-resolution mapping of the sensitivity genes. An F(2) mapping population derived from parent cultivars 'Cypress' (toxin sensitive) and 'Jasmine 85' (toxin insensitive) was used to map Rsn1, the necrosis-inducing locus. Initial mapping based on 176 F(2) progeny and 69 simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers located Rsn1 on the long arm of chromosome 7, with tight linkage to SSR marker RM418. A high-resolution genetic map of the region was subsequently developed using a total of 1,043 F(2) progeny, and Rsn1 was mapped to a 0.7 cM interval flanked by markers NM590 and RM418. Analysis of the corresponding 29 Kb genomic sequences from reference cultivars 'Nipponbare' and '93-11' revealed the presence of four putative genes within the interval. Two are expressed cytokinin-O-glucosyltransferases, which fit an apoptotic pathway model of toxin activity, and are individually being investigated further as potential candidates for Rsn1.

Selección de aislamientos de Trichoderma spp. con potencial biocontrolador de Rhizoctonia solani Kühn en papa bajo condiciones de casa de malla  

Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

Full Text Available El hongo fitopatógeno Rhizoctonia solani afecta raíces, tallos y tubérculos de papa, logrando reducir los rendimientos del cultivo hasta en un 50%. Con el propósito de ofrecer una alternativa biológica para el manejo de este problema, se evaluaron diez cepas nativas del hongo biocontrolador
Trichoderma spp. Inicialmente se evaluó la actividad patogénica de dos aislamientos de R. solani (Rh005 y Rh006 inoculando suelo en proporciones del 2,5 y 10% peso a peso (p/p donde posteriormente fueron transplantadas plántulas de papa producidas in vitro, encontrando con ambos aislamientos 100% de incidencia de la enfermedad. Sin embargo, fue seleccionado el aislamiento Rh005 ya que presentó mayor porcentaje de daño expresado como volcamiento de las plantas. Como prueba preliminar de antagonismo, en recipientes con suelo se enterraron bolsas de muselina que contenían esclerocios de este último aislamiento y se trataron
individualmente con suspensiones de los diferentes  aislamientos de Trichoderma spp.ajustadas a una concentración de 107conidios.ml-1, estableciéndose que los aislamientos de Trichoderma Th002, Th003, Th007, Th034 y Th181 parasitaron y degradaron más del 50% de los esclerocios. En el ensayo de protección al evaluar estos últimos aislamientos en casa de malla en donde se inoculó suelo con Rh005 (2% p/p se seleccionaron los aislamientos Th003 y Th034 por presentar diferencias con respecto a mayores pesos de biomasa fresca y seca en comparación con los restantes biocontroladores y los tratamientos químico, patógeno y testigo. Aunque no se logró disminuir la incidencia de la enfermedad, los aislamientos de Trichoderma seleccionados permitieron reducir el daño en las plantas observando mayor vigor, tallos normales con abundante follaje y mejor crecimiento radical.

Changes in the contents of metabolites and enzyme activities in rice plants responding to Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn infection: activation of glycolysis and connection to phenylpropanoid pathway.  

Science.gov (United States)

Rhizoctonia solani Kuhn causes sheath blight disease in rice, and genetic resistance against it is the most desirable characteristic. Current improvement efforts are based on analysis of polygenic quantitative trait loci (QTLs), but interpretation is limited by the lack of information on the changes in metabolic pathways. Our previous studies linked activation of the glycolytic pathway to enhanced generation of lignin in the phenylpropanoid pathway. The current studies investigated the regulation of glycolysis by examining the time course of changes in enzymatic activities and metabolite contents. The results showed that the activities of all glycolytic enzymes as well as fructose-6-phosphate (F-6-P), fructose-1,6-bisphosphate (F-1,6-P(2)), dihydroxyacetone phosphate (DHAP), glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate (GAP), 3-phosphoglycerate (3-PG), phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) and pyruvate contents increased. These results combined with our previous findings that the expression of phosphoglucomutase (PGM), triosephosphate isomerase (TPI), glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), enolase and pyruvate kinase (PK) increased after infection suggested that the additional establishment of glycolysis in the cytosol compartment occurred after infection. Further evidence for this was our recent findings that the increase in expression of the 6-phosphofructokinase (PFK) plastid isozyme Os06g05860 was accompanied by an increase in expression of three cytosolic PFK isozymes, i.e. Os01g09570, Os01g53680 and Os04g39420, as well as pyrophosphate-dependent phosphofrucokinase (PFP) isozymes Os08g25720 (?-subunit) and Os06g13810 (?-subunit) in infected rice plants of the resistant line. The results also showed that the reactions catalysed by PFK/PFP, aldolase, GAPDH + phosphoglycerate kinase (PGK) and PK in leaf sheaths of R. solani-infected rice plants were non-equilibrium reactions in vivo. This study showed that PGM, phosphoglucose isomerase (PGI), TPI and phosphoglycerate mutase (PGmu) + enolase could be regulated through coarse control whereas, PFK/PFP, aldolase, GAPDH + PGK and PK could be regulated through coarse and fine controls simultaneously.
