Helminthosporium leaf blight is a general term for several diseases caused by several fungi formerly known as Helminthosporium spp. These diseases include Southern corn leaf blight caused by Cochliobolus heterostrophus , Northern corn leaf blight caused by Setosphaeria turcica , and Northern corn leaf spot caused by Cochliobolus carbonum. Helminthosporium leaf blight pathogens survive between corn crops as spores conidia and mycelium in and on crop debris, but can also be transported long distances on wind currents. Disease symptoms of Helminthosporium leaf blights can vary among inbreds and hybrids. Southern corn leaf blight symptoms include tan, elongated lesions between veins with light brown to brown borders.

Bipolaris turcica Pass. Shoemaker, Drechslera turcica Pass. Jain, Exserohilum turcicum Pass. Arx, Gen. Setosphaeria turcica anamorph Exserohilum turcicum ; formerly known as Helminthosporium turcicum is the causal agent of northern corn leaf blight in maize. It is a serious fungal disease prevalent in cooler climates and tropical highlands wherever corn is grown.

It is characterized by large cigar shaped necrotic lesions that develop on the leaves due to the polyketide metabolite monocerin. Races of S. Isolates which do not overcome any known R gene are termed Race 0. Race 1, which overcomes the Ht1 resistance gene, was originally discovered in Hawaii in Instead, two isolates with complementary mating type genes are required for sexual reproduction. The "perfect stage" sexual stage or teleomorph was first described in The mating type locus of S.

Genotyping of S. Genotyping of isolates of S. In temperate populations, in contrast, there was low genetic diversity, high amounts of linkage disequilibrium, and a single dominant mating type, which suggests infrequent sexual mating.

Exserohilum turcicum sexual stage Setosphaeria turcica is the hemibiotrophic causal agent of northern leaf blight of maize and sorghum. This study aimed to identify the genes involved in host colonization during the biotrophic and necrotrophic phases of infection. It also aimed to identify race-specific differences in gene expression. Biological replicates were pooled per time point for each race and sequenced. A bioinformatics pipeline was used to identify candidate effectors, and expression was validated for selected candidates. Fungal biomass was positively correlated with the percentages of E. AVRHt1 is the putative E.

One reason for this development is the focus on maize as the most productive crop for biomass to produce bioenergy on the basis of biogas. This fact leads to several upcoming phytopathological problems in maize. The disadvantage of monogenic inherited resistance genes is the evolution of virulent races that may overcome the used resistance genes due to coevolutionary processes in the pathogen population. This illustrates the importance of the knowledge about the race structure in the pathogen population for targeted use of race specific resistance genes in breeding and for regional efficacy of race specific resistance genes that are already used in commercial cultivars. After inoculation of this differential set with single spore isolates and scoring the different reactions occurring on the different lines the isolate can be assigned to a specific race of the pathogen. The main objectives of this project are: Development of a fast race screening method for Exserohilum turicum Race monitoring of the Exserohilum turcicum population in central Europe Investigation of the pathogenesis in the pathosystem Zea mays and E.
