Hydrogen sulfide causes excision of a genomic island in Pseudomonas syringae pv. phaseolicola

Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is known to be an important signalling molecule in both animals and plants, despite its toxic nature. In plants it has been seen to control stomatal apertures, so altering the ability of bacteria to invade plant tissues. Bacteria are known to generate H2S as well as being exposed to plant-generated H2S. During their interaction with plants pathogenic bacteria ...

Detection and characterization of Tomato spotted wilt virus infecting field and greenhouse-grown crops in Zimbabwe

Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV), the type species of the genus Tospovirus in the family Bunyaviridae, is one of the most economically important emerging plant viruses worldwide. It causes over US$1 billion losses annually in open field and greenhouse-grown crops. A study was carried out to determine the geographical distribution, host range and phylogeny of TSWV in Zimbabwe. ...
