X-axis represents dpi and Y-axis represents the percentage of seedlings killed. A pot experiment demonstrated that the application of S20 alone could control eggplant bacterial wilt with only 25.3% efficacy, which may be due to S20 cells poor survival in soil . 2004) which also results in the lacZ reporter gene fusion. Lowe-Power TM, Khokhani D, Allen C. How Ralstonia solanacearum exploits and thrives in the flowing plant xylem environment. Briefly, 14–15 days old cotyledon stage eggplant seedlings were gently transferred from the germination tray to 1.5 mL microfuge tubes containing 1.0 mL of sterile distilled water (Fig. Fusarium oxysporum. Perrier A, Barlet X, Peyraud R, Rengel D, Guidot A, Genin S. Comparative transcriptomic studies identify specific expression patterns of virulence factors under the control of the master regulator PhcA in the Ralstonia solanacearum species complex. A soil pH between 5.5 and 7.0, good soil drainage and raised beds help alleviate disease pressure. melongenae. Control of virulence and pathogenicity genes of Ralstonia solanacearum by an elaborate sensory network. 2015;99:1271. 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). Escherichia coli was grown in 2% LB medium (Bertani 1951) at 37 °C. In this work we have demonstrated that the leaf-clip inoculation is a stable and consistent method to study R. solanacearum pathogenicity in the cotyledon stage of eggplant seedlings. Observations were made on each day to score disease in eggplant and tomato seedlings. However, hrpB was found to be non-pathogenic both in eggplant and tomato seedlings. TP and KK are thankful to UGC, GoI for the BSR and the NET-JRF fellowships, respectively. Different colors were used to mark the virulence progression of different strains in tomato and eggplant seedlings. f Transfer of inoculated seedlings into growth chamber (28 °C, 75% RH and 12 h photoperiod) and observation of disease symptoms. Here we report the screening results and horticultural characteristics of selected resistance sources. Correspondence to Eggplant being a different host, as well as from economical viewpoint, understanding eggplant and R. solanacearum interaction is of significant importance. Inoculum of P. putida and E. coli were prepared in a similar way except the growth temperature for E. coli was 37 °C. Symptoms. 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. Both types of transformants were selected on BG agar medium supplemented with gentamycin and spectinomycin. 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. 57, February 2019, pp. In future, the transcriptomics of the hrpG mutant will be of significant interest. This pathogen enters plant roots through wounds and multiplies rapidly FEBS Lett. Forest Pathol. The important virulence regulator, phcA (so far the known largest regulon of R. solanacearum) that controls plethora of pathogenicity functions downstream seems to have distinct roles in tomato and eggplant seedlings. Download preview PDF. It was distinct that eggplant seedlings were killed earlier than the tomato seedlings in the tube inoculated with F1C1 wild type strain. 2016; Lu et al. Figure S5. The authors declare that they have no competing interests. is one of the most important diseases affecting the production of many important crops worldwide. 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. Breeding for bacterial wilt resistance in eggplant (Solanum melongena L.): Progress and prospects 1. 2017;66:835–41. 5). Wilt causing bacteria The following are the reported bacteria that cause wilt in plants (Table 1). 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. In this study, we have analyzed phylotype of bacterial wilt (Ralstonia solanacearum) infection in eggplant plants collected from Bhubaneswar (Orissa) in India. 2005; Valls et al. Planting resistant varieties is the most efficient and simplest method of disease control. Salgon S, Jourda C, Sauvage C, Daunay MC, Reynaud B, Wicker E, et al. Abstract. This research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors. Eggplant seeds of respective varieties (viz. 2017). A consistent 100% death of the inoculated eggplant seedlings was recorded during each infection set-up. Privacy © 2020 Springer Nature Switzerland AG. Figure S1. 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. Shekhawat GS, Singh R, Kishore V. Distribution of bacterial wilt and races and biotypes of the pathogen in India. Causal Agent. If possible, avoid planting crops in land where bacterial wilt has occurred previously. Bacterial wilt is caused by a soil-borne bacterium named Ralstonia solanacearum (formerly known as Pseudomonas solanacearum). Total collapse of the plant usually occurs when temperatures reach 32degC and above. Isolation of Bacillus amyloliquefaciens S20 and its application in control of eggplant bacterial wilt. 2017;8:e00895–17. This is indicative of some host specific responses towards certain pathogenicity functions of R. solanacearum, which are markedly different in tomato and eggplant seedlings. Transcriptome responses to Ralstonia solanacearum infection in the roots of the wild potato Solanum commersonii. It may be possible that prhG homologue contributes differently in the expression of genes in the F1C1 strain even when hrpG is defective. The cotyledon leaves are short lived in seedlings unlike true leaves. Therefore, a stable and consistent pathogenicity assay effective in any particular host is an important requirement for host-pathogen interaction study. Bacterial wilt of tomato/eggplant: Bacterial wilt of tomato/eggplant: The initial symptom is a wilting of the terminal leaves, which after 2 to 3 days becomes permanent when the whole plant wilts due to the active development of the disease. Mol Microbiol. There may be several rea- sons why eggplant has not been used as a model host for this pathogen. 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). 2018). The general observation was that the number of dead seedlings decreased as bacterial titers in the inoculum went below 107 CFU/mL, which might be proportional to the number of bacteria deposited initially at the inoculated site (Additional file 1: Figure S3). Bacterial wilt (BW) caused by Ralstonia solanacearum is a serious disease affecting the production of Solanaceae species, including eggplant (Solanum melongena).However, few resistance genes have been identified in eggplant, and therefore the underlying mechanism of … Among 22 effective antagonistic isolates, 18 were Pseudomonas spp. Under natural conditions, this pathogen infects the host plants through root, colonizes in the xylem vessels and then spreads systemically till causing wilting in its hosts (Genin 2010). Departamento de Biotecnología - Departament de Biotecnologia: Fecha difusión: We anticipate this study would open new windows of investigations towards issues related to host specific pathogenic functions and responses in the immediate future. Seedlings died at 4 dpi were examined by GUS staining. 2). Resistant rootstocks are also available. 2017). The leaf-clip inoculation method described here is easy, simple and consistent. In the case of TRS1018, fluorescence was observed in leaf, stem and root like TRS1016, which indicated that phcA mutant is able to grow and spread better than hrpB mutant in eggplant seedlings. Eggplant is an important vegetable in all over the world. Damping-Off & Root Rot. 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. But, for the eggplant seedlings, the phcA mutant was observed to be only moderately virulence deficient. Both eggplant (marked with red star) and tomato seedlings (marked with red circle) were kept in one microfuge tube and then inoculated with a water b F1C1 wild type c phcA mutant d hrpB mutant and e hrpG mutant. PubMed Central  Theor Appl Genet. Study Design: Multi-stage and Simple Random Sampling Design/Technique were used in the study. BMC Genomics. In total 39 farmers’ fields located in the central and northern Peru between the altitudes 2111 and 3742 m above sea level were sampled. The low virulence of hrpG as well as the moderate virulence phenotype of the phcA mutant in eggplant seedlings was surprising (Fig. 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. Inoculated seedlings were analyzed for disease progression till 10 dpi. Genetic diversity of Indian isolates of Ralstonia solanacearum causing bacterial wilt of eggplant (Solanum melongena). Mol Plant-Microbe Interact. Artal RB, Gopalkrishnan C, Thippeswamy B. Evaluation of eggplant accessions for resistance to bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum (E.F. smith) Yabuuchi et al. The parents and 16 hybrids were evaluated in the field for their fertility and resistance to bacterial wilt using a race 1, biovar 3 strain of R. solanacearum. Bacterial wilt in eggplant is a common disease in tropical and subtropical regions (Shekhawat et al. Though, the pathogen causes the wilt disease in different hosts, its aggressiveness is not identical (Genin 2010; Genin and Denny 2012). This suggested that phcA mutant is virulence deficient compared to wild type (P < 0.001; log-rank test) while hrpB and hrpG mutants are almost non-pathogenic. Abstract : Eggplant is prone to attack by several pests including bacteria, fungi, nematodes and insects. Not affiliated Multihost experimental evolution of the pathogen Ralstonia solanacearum unveils genes involved in adaptation to plants. for suppression of eggplant bacterial wilt pathogen in Andaman Islands: Isolation and characterization K Sakthivel*1, K Manigundan1, RK Gautam1, PK Singh1, S Nakkeeran2 & Sushil K Sharma3 1Division of Field Crop Improvement and Protection, ICAR-Central Island Agricultural Research Institute, Bertani G. Studies on lysogenesis I. the mode of phage liberation by lysogenic Escherichia coli. This article will help. However, significant interactions of cultivar–location highlighted the importance of both site environmental conditions and pathogen population variability for the three species (3,32, 39,50–52,57,74). 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. Virulence of F1C1 and hrpB, hrpG and phcA mutants of F1C1 in eggplant and tomato seedlings. TP performed and designed the experiments, analyzed the data, wrote the manuscript; KK performed the experiments, analyzed the data, wrote the manuscript; RS performed the experiments; PLS wrote the manuscript; NS wrote the manuscript; AB wrote the manuscript; BRJ performed the experiments; SKR designed the experiments, analyzed and interpreted the data and wrote the manuscript. The hrpB mutant was found to be non-pathogenic while hrpG was highly reduced for pathogenicity in both hosts (Fig. A representative picture showing differential pathogenicity of R. solanacearum between eggplant and tomato seedlings by recruiting their seedlings in a single microfuge tube. 2014). Front Plant Sci. Capsicum and Eggplant Newsletter 12:94 – 96, Tsai JW, Hsu ST, Chen LC (1985) Bacteriocin-producing strains of Pseudomonas solanacearum and their effect on development of bacterial wilt of tomato. The peculiar behaviour of phcA mutant in eggplant seedlings is difficult to ascertain at this moment. Boucher CA, Barberis P, Demery DA. HrpB, HrpG and PhcA are well established global transcription regulators of many pathogenicity determinants in R. solanacearum (Genin et al. There may be several reasons why eggplant has not been used as a model host for this pathogen. Bacterial wilt (BW), caused by Ralstonia solanacearum, is a major limiting factor for eggplant (Solarium melongena) production in the tropics and subtropics. J Hortic Sci. Taking reference sequence of GMI1000, primers were designed for partial amplification of hrpG homologue in F1C1 strain. Bacterial wilt caused by Ralstonia solanacearum is one of the major diseases in Solanum species including cultivated Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.). 2018) was observed to be inconsistent and time consuming (Unpublished data). hrpG, hrpB and phcA could be differentiated from each other as well as from the wild type strain in regard to their pathogenicity functions in eggplant seedlings. Schell MA. PubMed Google Scholar. PubMed  Lu H, Lema AS, Planas-Marquès M, Alonso-Díaz A, Valls M, Coll NS.

Cho H, Song ES, Lee YK, Lee S, Lee SW, Jo A, et al. California Privacy Statement, One of the difficulties in studying virulence of this bacterium in different host plants is the development of an easy and stable pathogenicity assay. CAS  This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves. 3). Pepper bacterial wilt is caused by the bacterial pathogen, Ralstonia solanacearum.It is the most destructive disease of many Solanaceous crops such as potatoes, tobacco, pepper, tomatoes and eggplant and is a significant source of crop loss worldwide. However, in the case of the leaf-clip inoculation, the pathogen is directly deposited at the cut end of the leaf and disease symptom appeared in the inoculated leaves soon after pathogenic colonization and growth. 2016;12:e1005686. Fusarium Wilt. In future, in planta gene expression studies in this pathogen with regard to eggplant and tomato seedlings may draw out mechanism of differential virulence of the phcA mutant between the two hosts. 2018). Kumar R, Barman A, Phukan T, Kabyashree K, Singh N, Jha G, et al. To determine the effect of different titers of the pathogen on disease progression, the eggplant seedlings were inoculated with different titers of R. solanacearum F1C1 (~ 109, 107, 105, 104 and 103 CFU/mL). and eggplant (Solanum melongenaL.) Apart from being economical in requiring less labor, time and space, this simple gnotobiotic leaf-clip inoculation method is anticipated to be helpful in further exploring the interaction between R. solanacearum and eggplant seedlings at the cotyledon stage. Springer Nature. Both race 1 and race 3 can cause bacterial wilt of tomato with similar disease symptoms. Trends Microbiol. The picture was taken at 4 dpi. DevKiran, Param Hybrid). We believe that optimization of the root inoculation method will be required in future for efficient pathogenicity study. Bacterial wilt (BW) disease management in eggplant is difficult due to high survival rate of pathogen in soil and chemical application is not eco-friendly. Lebeau A, Gouy M, Daunay MC, Wicker E, Chiroleu F, Prior P, et al. 2016;17:114–21. R. solanacearum is a soil borne bacterium. Pest Manag Hortic Ecosyst. 2018). One of the difficulties in studying virulence of this bacterium in different host plants is the development of an easy and stable pathogenicity assay. To create mCherry marked hrpB and phcA mutant of F1C1, genomic DNA of TRS1012 and TRS1013 was used to naturally transform mCherry-marked F1C1, respectively (TRS1016). Transposon mutagenesis of Pseudomonas solanacearum: isolation of Tn5-induced avirulent mutants. J Indian Potato Assoc. Ozaki K, Watabe H. Bacterial wilt of geranium and portulaca caused by Ralstonia solanacearum in Japan. The occurrence of the bacterial wilt disease is known in tropical and subtropical regions of the world [4]. All chemicals used were bought from Himedia (Mumbai, India). b Germination of the seeds in a wet cotton and tissue paper bed in a growth chamber maintained at 28 °C and 75% relative humidity up to 14–15 days. At the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center (AVRDC), germplasm of cultivated eggplant has been collected worldwide. 2013;126:143–58. We found eggplant seedlings to be more susceptible to R. solanacearum infection in comparison to tomato seedlings in terms of the duration of disease progression, the number of seedlings killed after inoculation with the pathogen as well as the with-host growth rate of the pathogen.

PLoS Pathog. This method of inoculation takes care of the limitations encountered with the inoculation of the soil-grown plants. 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. Soil Requirement. Chloroplast DNA microsatellite analysis revealed that 18 hybrids had the chloroplasts of the eggplant and 12 those of the wild species. We thank Dr. L. Sahoo (IIT Guwahati) for the kind gift of the tobacco plants to test the HR in this study. Bacterial wilt (BW), caused by Ralstonia solanacearum, is a major limiting factor for eggplant ( Solarium melongena) production in the tropics and subtropics. Bacterial wilt is one of the major diseases of tomato and other The Solanaceae family, also known as the "nightshade" family, is a family of flowering plants, many of which are edible, while others are poisonous. Error bars are depicting standard errors. 4). The hrpG mutant used in this study is an insertion mutant of R. solanacearum F1C1 strain while the hrpG mutant studied in Kumar et al. 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.
