bacterial wilt of eggplant

Posted on

The lower stems of affected plants develop dark, vascular browning that often extends into the cortical and pith tissues. This study revealed non-pathogenic behavior of the hrpB mutant both in eggplant and tomato seedlings. The bacterium affects more than 30 plant species, the most susceptible crops being potato, tomato, eggplant, pepper, banana and groundnut. It grows well from 28 C to 32 C strictly in CAS  Bacterial wilt (BW), caused by Ralstonia solanacearum, is a major limiting factor for eggplant ( Solarium melongena) production in the tropics and subtropics. Forty eight endophytic bacteria and 101 rhizobacteria were screened for their antibacterial activity against Ralstonia solanacearum, causal agents of eggplant wilt. Part of Springer Nature. Colonization of F1C1 in the inoculated eggplant seedlings was demonstrated by the GUS staining of the infected seedlings as performed previously in tomato seedlings (Kumar et al. Fusarium Wilt. Bacterial wilt is caused by a soil-borne bacterium named Ralstonia solanacearum (formerly known as Pseudomonas solanacearum). In R. solanacearum GMI1000, hrpG positively regulates the expression of hrpB, as well as several other important virulence functions (Valls et al. Article  We further studied differential colonization of mCherry tagged hrpB and phcA mutants of R. solanacearum F1C1 strains in eggplant seedlings (Fig. Theor Appl Genet. Bul Minamikyushu Univ. Genetics of bacterial wilt was studied in four F 2 population which were chosen by 20 F 1 hybrids derived from line x tester crosses of five female x four male parents. Forest Pathol.

Inventory and functional analysis of the large Hrp regulon in Ralstonia solanacearum: identification of novel effector proteins translocated to plant host cells through the type III secretion system. This research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors. It enters a plant through natural openings and wounds in the roots and grow up into the stem, where it blocks the supply of nutrients and water to the leaves. Five accessions of eggplant and 12 wild accessions showed high and stable resistance to different bacterial wilt strains. In this study we referred to the germinated seedlings with only cotyledon leaves (without true leaves) as cotyledon stage seedlings. The low virulence of hrpG as well as the moderate virulence phenotype of the phcA mutant in eggplant seedlings was surprising (Fig. Figure S8. Mole BM, Baltrus DA, Dangl JL, Grant SR. An innovative root inoculation method to study Ralstonia solanacearum pathogenicity in tomato seedlings. Ralstonia solanacearum virulence in eggplant seedlings by the leaf-clip inoculation. 4) because hrpG mutant was non-pathogenic and phcA mutant showed highly reduced virulence on the tomato seedlings by the same leaf inoculation procedure (Kumar et al. Planting resistant varieties is the most efficient and simplest method of disease control. 2015;105:1529–44. The picture was taken at 4 dpi. 2016;17:114–21. The seedlings were then inoculated with F1C1 and the mutants including hrpB, hrpG and phcA, respectively at concentrations ~ 109 CFU/mL by the leaf-clip method. There may be several reasons why eggplant has not been used as a model host for this pathogen. Eggplant infected with southern bacterial wilt. Bacterial wilts of tomato, pepper, eggplant, and Irish potato caused by R. solanacearum were among the first diseases that Erwin Frink Smith proved to be caused by a bacterial pathogen. Bacterial wilt (BW), caused by Ralstonia solanacearum,is one of the most economically important soil-borne diseases of tomato (Solanum lycopersicumL.) Plant Prot Bull (Taiwan) 27:267 – 278, Wang JF, Hanson PM, Barnes JA (1996) Preliminary results of worldwide evaluation of international set of resistance sources to bacterial wilt in tomatoes. Similarly, for phcA mutant inoculation, disease aggressiveness was more in eggplant after 6 dpi than in tomato seedlings (P < 0.001; log-rank test).

BACTERIAL WILT OF POTATO Authors: S. Priou, P. Aley, E. Chujoy, B. Lemaga and E. R. French Ralstonia solanacearum is the causal agent of the disease known as potato brown rot or bacterial wilt (BW). Bacterial wilt (BW) caused by Ralstonia solanacearum is a serious disease affecting the production of Solanaceae species, including eggplant (Solanum melongena). Bacterial strains used in this study are listed in Table 1. Kumar R. Studying virulence functions of Ralstonia solanacearum, the causal agent of bacterial wilt in plants. Further, difference between eggplant and tomato seedlings with regard to R. solanacearum infection was prominent in the case of phcA mutant. It is pertinent to note that R. solanacearum pathogenicity in host plants is not so simple. Eggplant seedlings were inoculated by the F1C1 wild type, hrpB, hrpG or phcA mutants with saturated concentrations (109 CFU/mL). However, few resistance genes have been identified in eggplant, and therefore the underlying mechanism of BW resistance remains unclear. Ralstonia solanacearum causes a lethal bacterial wilt disease in 200 plant species of 53 botanical families including agronomically important crop plants such as tomato, potato, eggplant, olive, banana, peanut, ginger, etc. 5 and Fig. 2004) which also results in the lacZ reporter gene fusion. The virulence of R. solanacearum in eggplant seedlings was studied upon inoculating the seedlings with different titers of the pathogen (109 to 103 CFU/mL). Inoculated seedlings along with control were transferred to a growth chamber (Orbitek, Scigenics, India) maintained at 28 °C, 75% RH under 12 h photoperiod and observed for disease progression next day onwards till 10 dpi.

Because of its devastating lethality, R. solanacearum is now one of the more intensively studied phytopathogenic bacteria, and bacterial wilt of tomato is a model system for investigating mechanisms of … 1985;131:2449–57. Plant Pathol J. As root inoculation is a natural mode of infection, therefore inoculation by this mode might necessitate a greater physiological tuning between the host and the pathogen for infection to occur (Singh et al. Isolation of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens S20 and its application in control of eggplant bacterial wilt. It need mention that GMI1000 possesses a homologue of hrpG, known as prhG which regulates the expression of hrpB under special circumstances as well as in the absence of hrpG (Plener et al. Then a pair of sterile scissors were dipped in the bacterial suspension (~ 109 CFU/mL or other concentrations required) and ~one-third of both the cotyledon leaves from the tips were clipped off in each eggplant seedling, and 6-7 days old tomato seedlings at cotyledon stage were recruited for inoculation in the same way. mBio. Phytopathology 42:628 – 634, https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-662-03592-4_41. One of the successful transformants TRS1027 was recruited in the further experiments and was deficient in eliciting hypersensitive response (Additional file 1: Figure S8). Then the whole plants wilt and die suddenly. In this study, bacterial wilt‐resistant and wilt‐susceptible eggplants were inoculated with Ralstonia solanacearum and the ROS content was analysed. Therefore perplexing virulence phenotype of hrpG mutant may be attributed to different aspects such as the strain background, inoculation mode, and type of mutation or any other unknown factors. 2014;9:202–5. Google Scholar. TRS1016 (F1C1 wild type tagged with mCherry), TRS1017 and TRS1018 inoculated eggplant seedlings were observed under the fluorescence microscope at 4 dpi. Figure S5. Scroll for More. This is an easy and stable method of inoculation in which the juvenile seedlings are maintained in 1.5 or 2.0 mL microfuge tubes. This was indeed found to be true in a recent study that described differential impact of hrpB and hrpG mutants on root growth of Arabidopsis thaliana (Lu et al. We are grateful to Drs. 2017). The peculiar behaviour of phcA mutant in eggplant seedlings is difficult to ascertain at this moment. We anticipate this study would open new windows of investigations towards issues related to host specific pathogenic functions and responses in the immediate future. Its host range is expanding further with recent findings (Coutinho et al. Not affiliated 2000;38:263–92. In this study we have demonstrated that R. solanacearum is more aggressive in eggplant seedlings than in tomato seedlings by the leaf-clip inoculation. This suggested that the leaf-clip inoculation method in eggplant seedlings was able to demonstrate marked variation among the three virulence deficient mutants. 1). Figure S9.

Salgon S, Jourda C, Sauvage C, Daunay MC, Reynaud B, Wicker E, et al. The current bacterial wilt infestation level in the potato fields in the Peruvian Andes was investigated by collecting stem samples from wilted plants and detecting Ralstonia solanacearum. Phytopathology. This is indicative of some host specific responses towards certain pathogenicity functions of R. solanacearum, which are markedly different in tomato and eggplant seedlings. No disease symptoms till 10 dpi could be observed when the eggplant seedlings were inoculated with non-pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli and P. putida (Additional file 1: Figure S1). In future, it may allow a large scale screening of eggplant specific virulence deficient mutants of R. solanacearum. 2017;8:e00895–17. Hypersensitive response (HR) assay of wild type F1C1, hrpB and hrpG mutants of F1C1. Experimental evolution of a plant pathogen into a legume symbiont. PubMed  To further ascertain that the eggplant seedlings were more susceptible than tomato seedlings to R. solanacearum infection, we inoculated the seedlings with lower concentrations of the pathogen (104 and 105 CFU/mL), respectively. 1978;5:155–65. One of the difficulties in R. solanacearum pathogenicity test is to make close comparison between infected susceptible host plants. The leaf-clip inoculation method used to study R. solanacearum pathogenicity in tomato seedlings in our earlier work and here in the eggplant seedlings, was inspired from the work of Kauffman et al. A close comparison of R. solanacearum F1C1 pathogenicity between eggplant and tomato seedlings was made by keeping the two seedlings in a single microfuge tube. This service is more advanced with JavaScript available, Bacterial Wilt Disease An efficient inoculation method to screen tomato, brinjal and chilli entries for bacterial wilt resistance. The phcA mutant was found to be only moderately virulence deficient in eggplant seedlings but was significantly reduced in virulence in tomato. Similar pathogenicity magnitudes and disease progressions were observed for 109 and 107 CFU/mL. Differential expression of R. solanacearum virulence functions in laboratory and in plant environments is already known (Jacobs et al. Pathogenicity study with different concentrations of wild type F1C1. PubMed Google Scholar. f Transfer of inoculated seedlings into growth chamber (28 °C, 75% RH and 12 h photoperiod) and observation of disease symptoms. New Phytol. Whereas ~ 15% eggplant seedlings, and ~ 10% tomato seedlings were found dead due to hrpG inoculation. RS/BRJ and NS are thankful to the DBT, GoI for the MSc fellowship and BET-JRF/SRF fellowships, respectively. It may be possible that prhG homologue contributes differently in the expression of genes in the F1C1 strain even when hrpG is defective. For inoculation with phcA mutant, eggplant seedlings developed disease while tomato seedlings were healthy in the same tube. Annu Rev Phytopathol. Recent studies of experimental evolution in this bacterium have given crucial insight into the role of transcription regulators in its host adaptation and colonization (Marchetti et al. 2018;116:273–8. 1991;29:65–87. Introduction. Phytopathology. 2013; Cho et al. Front Plant Sci. Escherichia coli was grown in 2% LB medium (Bertani 1951) at 37 °C. 1998;88:330–4. Symptoms first appear as a slight yellowing of foliage and wilting of upper leaves. TP and KK are thankful to UGC, GoI for the BSR and the NET-JRF fellowships, respectively. Bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacerum is one of the most economically and destructive eggplant diseases in many tropical and subtropical areas of the world. Bacterial wilt caused by plant pathogenic Ralstonia spp. Use bacterial wilt-resistant eggplant as rootstocks for wilt-susceptible tomatoes. The hrpG mutant was observed to cause disease in a few seedlings of tomato as well as in eggplant. Wilt severity and bacterial invasiveness at collar and midstem were compared in the field under cooler (March to May, 20–28°C) and warmer months (June to August, 23–29°C), which were unfavourable and favourable to wilt symptom expression, respectively. 2017). Bacterial Wilt/Southern Wilt (Ralstonia solanacearum) Plants affected by this bacteria disease are in … All data generated or analyzed during this study are included in this published article and its supplementary information files. 2018). Interestingly, we found more disease aggressiveness in tomato seedlings than in eggplant upon inoculation with hrpG mutant. Observations were made on each day to score disease in eggplant and tomato seedlings. It may also be helpful for researchers interested in screening large number of disease resistant eggplant cultivars. 2016;100:732–8. 1978; Ramesh 2006; Antony et al.

How Ralstonia solanacearum exploits and thrives in the flowing plant xylem environment. and eggplant (Solanum melongenaL.) Bacterial wilt of brinjal caused by Ralstonia solanacearum is responsible for severe yield losses (10-90%) in farmer’s field. 2016; Singh et al. (2017) was a GMI1000 derived deletion mutant. We believe that the efficacy of the R. solanacearum leaf-clip inoculation mode in tomato and eggplant seedlings is expected to provide fertile ground for its potential utility in the pathogenicity tests of other hosts in near future. One of the difficulties in studying virulence of this bacterium in different host plants is the development of an easy and stable pathogenicity assay. Similar magnitude of F1C1 pathogenicity (Additional file 1: Figure S2) could also be observed in seedlings of the other two eggplant cultivars (viz.

Pensec F, Lebeau A, Daunay MC, Chiroleu F, Guidot A, Wicker E. Towards the identification of type III effectors associated with Ralstonia solanacearum virulence on tomato and eggplant. On 6 dpi, 100% of seedlings were killed upon inoculation with F1C1 wild type, in the case of the phcA, till 4 dpi, almost all the seedlings were healthy, but by 9 dpi, more than 80% seedlings were killed. resistance for creating bacterial wilt resistant cultivars of tomato, eggplant, and pepper (TEP) (2,3,14,27,31,45,50,51,62,67, 69,74,75). PhcA is a known global transcription regulator in R. solanacearum and has been described as the largest regulon of the pathogen, which is involved in the regulation of unusually a large number of genes (~ 30% genes in the genome) including important pathogenicity determinants such as exopolysaccharides, extracellular enzymes, motility and type III secretion system (Perrier et al. CAS  2009;39:67–71. Bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum is one of the major diseases in Solanum species including cultivated Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.). Unable to display preview. A field experiment was conducted for the evaluation of different bio-agents, chemicals and plant extracts against bacterial wilt of brinjal at botany … After 4 dpi, the infected seedlings were surface sterilized as described previously (Kumar et al. Mol Plant-Microbe Interact. The best bet is to ensure good drainage. Figure S1. Place and Duration of Study: Department of Agricultural Extension, University of Nigeria, Nsukka Enugu State, Nigeria. Pathogenicity of F1C1 and non-pathogenic bacteria in eggplant seedlings by the leaf-clip inoculation. Pathogenicity assay in eggplant seedlings was done by the leaf-clip method as described previously for tomato seedlings (Kumar et al. Mol Plant Pathol. Ralstonia solanacearum virulence in tomato seedlings inoculated by leaf clipping. At a bacterial concentration of 105 CFU/mL, number of seedlings died on 8 dpi was close to the number of seedlings died on 5 dpi for 107 CFU/mL. But in those seedlings the leaf-clip inoculation method was efficient to study R. solanacearum pathogenicity (Unpublished data). Resistance sources to bacterial wilt in eggplant have been identified and resistant breeding lines in eggplant have been developed, mainly in India (Goth et al. Pest Manag Hortic Ecosyst. 2018). 2017). At a titer of 104 CFU/mL, number of seedlings died was significantly lesser (~ 32%) and for 103 CFU/mL only a few seedlings were dead (< 10%). Trends Microbiol. Bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacerum is one of the most important eggplant diseases in tropical and subtropical regions in the world. As eggplant is closely related to tomato, it might have been thought that the pathogen behavior towards eggplant will be similar to that of tomato. (Hayward 1991). Suvendra K. Ray. Study Design: Multi-stage and Simple Random Sampling Design/Technique were used in the study. Bertani G. Studies on lysogenesis I. the mode of phage liberation by lysogenic Escherichia coli. In both the concentrations, F1C1 caused higher death in eggplant seedlings than that of tomato seedlings. In the case of tomato, it took only 1 week (6–7 days) (Durga; Ruby variety) to reach two leaves cotyledon stage (Kumar et al. g Infected seedlings after 10 dpi. In total 39 farmers’ fields located in the central and northern Peru between the altitudes 2111 and 3742 m above sea level were sampled.

Resistance and susceptibility of Arabidopsis thaliana to bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum. 2012;50:67–89. Bacterial wilt of tomato/eggplant The initial symptom is a wilting of the terminal leaves, which after 2 - 3 days becomes permanent when the whole plant wilts due to the active development of the disease. There are plants, referred to as distant hosts, where R. solanacearum colonizes but fails to cause any disease symptom (Guidot et al. Forward primer oFhrpG (5′-GCCAAGCTTGCGTACCGAGGCATTCAGTC-3′) incorporated with HindIII restriction site and reverse primer oRhrpG (5′-GCCTCTAGATCTTGCGCAGCTTGTAGATGT-3′) incorporated with XbaI restriction site at their 5′ ends, respectively were used to amplify approximately 500 bp amplicon of hrpG homologue in F1C1. GUS staining was observed along the shoot region of the seedlings suggesting that growth and migration of the bacteria occurred towards the root region from the inoculated site in the cotyledon leaves along with the shoot (Fig. 2004;53:115–28.
