The plant pathogen Clavibacter michiganensis subsp. michiganensis is a gram-positive bacterium responsible for wilt and canker disease of tomato. Although disease development is well characterized and diagnosed, molecular mechanisms of C. michiganensis subsp. michiganensis virulence are poorly understood. Here, we

In this work, we present a new method for synthesis of silica gel stationary phases based on calix[4]arene derivatives. In order to achieve it, 25,27-dipropoxy-26,28-bis-[3-propyloxydimethylsililoxy]calix[4]arene has been synthesized in six steps and immobilized on silica via chlorotrimethylsilane. Stationary phases were

The plant's innate immune system detects potential biotic threats through recognition of microbe-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs) or danger-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) by pattern recognition receptors (PRR). A central regulator of pattern-triggered immunity (PTI) is the BRI1-associated kinase 1 (BAK1), which
