Exploration and Swiss field-testing of a viral gene for specific quantitative resistance against smuts and bunts in wheat.

Thomas Schlaich, Bartosz Urbaniak, Marie-Laure Plissonnier, Nicole Malgras, Christof Sautter,

The viral gene for the killer protein 4 (KP4) has been explored for its antifungal effect in genetically modified wheat to defeat specifically the seed-transmitted smut and bunt diseases. In vitro both important seed-transmitted diseases of wheat, loose smut (Ustilago tritici) and stinking smut (Tilletia caries), are susceptible to KP4, ... Read more >>

Increased field resistance to Tilletia caries provided by a specific antifungal virus gene in genetically engineered wheat.

Thomas Schlaich, Bartosz M Urbaniak, Nicole Malgras, Elisabeth Ehler, Christof Birrer, Lukas Meier, Christof Sautter,

The field performance of a viral gene in two Swiss wheat (Triticum aestivum) varieties showed 10% increased fungal resistance against Tilletia caries (stinking smut). To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of improved resistance against any fungus in the field achieved by genetic engineering in wheat. ... Read more >>
