Proteome analysis of blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei inoculated barley

Özgazi, Neşe
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 replicates of three time points together with the mock inoculated plant proteins were separated on 2D-PAGE using IPG strips of 4-7 pH values as three technical replicates, resulting 108 gels. The gels were analyzed using PdQuest (Bio Rad) in order to assess up- or down-regulated protein spots by comparing against controls and the samples having resistance or susceptible responses with each other. According to the analysis, 36 proteins were found to be differentiated and among them 18 proteins were found up-regulated and 8 proteins were found down-regulated. The spots were manually v excised and subjected to the nano-LC-ESI-MS/MS analysis (Proteome Factory, Germany). The MASCOT algorithm was used for identification of the possible proteins. The experimental pI and MW values were used for selecting the differentiated proteins from the mass results. The relative abundance of each of the 38 identified polypeptides was calculated in terms of spot intensity. The majority of the most abundant proteins were found to be carbohydrate metabolism related. The relative distribution of the proteins into four main functional categories was taken into consideration. Statistical tests (Students‟ T-test) were carried among the identified proteins in order to reveal statistically significant proteins throughout the study. By making a WoLF PSORT search, subcellular localization of the proteins was predicted. Accordingly, most of the proteins were found to be located in cytoplasm or chloroplast.


Molecular characterization of blumeria graminis f. sp. hordei using aflp markers
Çallak Kirişözü, Asude; Akkaya, Mahinur S.; Department of Biotechnology (2009)
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 r...
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...
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...
Rediscovery of Scorzonera amasiana Hausskn. and Bornm. - A threatened endemic species in turkey
Karaer, Fergan; Celep, Ferhat (2007-12-01)
Scorzonera amasiana Hausskn. and Bornm. was described from type specimens collected by J.F.N. Bornmueller in 1889 but it was not collected again until 1993, when it was found near Amasya, Turkey. Populations of S. amasiana were quite small at that limited locations and were vulnerable to human impacts. Therefore, suitable conservation strategies should be developed immediately in order to protect the species from probable extinction. Here, an additional three small populations are reported. Brief history, m...

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...
