Molecular characterization of blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei using aflp markers

Çallak Kirişözü, Asude
Blumeria graiminis f. sp. hordei (powdery mildew) is an obligate biotroph infecting hordeum vulgare (barley). It is one of the most devastating pathogens of barley, decreasing barley yield in great extent. In order to decrease barley loss, numerous studies are being conducted for overcoming the disease from the sides of both pathogen and host. However the pathogen is evolving very rapidly preventing the effective use of pesticides such as fungisides or development of resistant barley varieties by crossing race-specific resistance varieties, varieties having R genes, with susceptible but high yield producing varieties. In order to understand the mechanism of pathogen-host interactions, and producing enduring solutions for the problem of yield loss in barley molecular tools need to be used. In this thesis study, Amplified Fragment Length Polymorphism (AFLP) molecular marker method is used in order to reveal the molecular characterization of Turkish Blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei varieties collected from Çukurova region in Turkey. Thirty-nine samples were analyzed with eigth universal races, of which virulence genes are studied. AFLP studies were conducted on LI-COR 4300 DNA Analyzer system. Bioinformatics analysis was performed with NTSYS program. By the help of this Numerical Taxonomic System, similarity, dissimilarity, clustering, dendograms, two-dimensional scatter plots, and three-dimensional perspective plots were obtained. By the light of these analyses Turkish Blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei varieties together with universal races are grouped into three clusteres. In conclusion, studying Turkish Blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei isolates and comparing them with universal races is a unique study in terms of characterizing the Turkish Bgh isolates for the first time, and can be used as a frontier study for studying Resistance genes, by reverse genetic tools.


Proteome analysis of blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei inoculated barley
Özgazi, Neşe; Akkaya, Mahinur S.; Department of Biotechnology (2009)
Blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei is a biotroph pathogen that causes powdery mildew disease in barley. In this study, Pallas01 and Pallas03 barley lines having Mla1, Ml (Al2) and Mla6, Mla14 R-genes were inoculated with Bgh103(64/01) race of the Blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei having avirulence and virulence to Pallas01 and Pallas03, respectively. The proteins were isolated from the three biological replicates of 12, 24, and 48 hpi samples following the method in Rampitsch et al., 2006. These there biological...
Investigation of subcellular localization of a yellow rust pathogen effector candidate
Andaç, Ayşe; Akkaya, Mahinur S.; Department of Biotechnology (2013)
Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici is one of the fungal pathogens, which causes one of the most disruptive diseases of wheat called, stripe rust, in many parts of the world. Because of their highly destructive character, Puccinia species including yellow rust are responsible for considerable yield losses in worldwide wheat production. Despite its economic importance, the genomics of the pathogens and the plant-pathogen interactions have not been identified yet. For sustainable control of this plant disease...
Synthesis of new ferrocenyl substituted quinoxaline derivative monomers, their polymerization and electrochemical behaviors
Özdemir, Şerife; Doğan, Özdemir; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2010)
5,8-Bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-2-(naphthalen-2-yl)-3-ferrocenyl-4a,8a-dihydroquinoxaline (DEFNQ), 5,8-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-2-(phenyl)-3 ferrocenylquinoxaline (DEFPQ) and 5,8-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-2,3-di(naphthalen-2-yl)quinoxaline (DEDNQ) were synthesized, electrochemically polymerized and electrochromic properties of resultant polymers were investigated. For the characterization of the monomers Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (1H-NMR, 13C-NMR) w...
Leaf anatomy of Agropyron Gaertn. (Gramineae) in Turkey
Mavi, D. Ozlem; Doğan, Musa; Cabi, Evren (2011-01-01)
Agropyron cristatum (L.) Gaertn. is represented by 2 subspecies in Turkey, namely subsp. incanum (Nabelek) Melderis and subsp. pectinatum (M.Bieb.) Tzvelev. This study examines the taxonomic significance of the leaf properties of the taxa of Agropyron Gaertn., comprising diagnostic anatomical features obtained from leaf transverse sections as well as leaf surface micromorphology. Results of the study show that most of the characters, such as the shape of the leaf blades; the size and number of stomata; the ...
Bio-functional analysis of RAD23 gene using virus induced gene silencing method in response to powdery mildew attack in Barley
Aksoy, Yağmur; Akkaya, Mahinur S.; Ersoy, Figen; Department of Biotechnology (2012)
Blumeria graminis f.sp. hordei is an obligate biotrophic parasite causing powdery mildew disease in several cereals, including barley. Virus induced gene silencing (VIGS) is a widely used powerful tool in plant functional-genomic studies to determine the functions of genes in disease resistance. In this thesis study, the function of RAD23 gene in barley in plant resistance was investigated. The RAD23 is a ubiquitin (Ub) binding protein involved in programmed protein degradation by transferring of ubiquityla...
