Malaysian Journal of Microbiology , 2006,
Abstract: The fungus Verticillium psalliotae Treschow is known to grow on the rust sori masses of Hemileia vastatrix in coffee plantings in Malaysia. However, published reports on this parasite or other biocontrol organisms present naturally in the coffee ecosystems in Malaysia are lacking. In vitro and in vivo studies were conducted to elucidate evidence of parasitism of V. psalliotae on H. vastatrix. The host-mycoparasite interaction conducted in vitro resulted a significant reduction in germination of Hemileia uredespores and an increase in germination of Verticillium conidia. A significant reduction in leaf rust severity by the presence of V. psalliotae, particularly when V. psalliotae was applied 24 hours before the inoculation of H. vastatrix, demonstrated an evidence parasitism in vivo. The evidences were supported by SEM observation of penetration and damage to Hemileia uredospores by hyphae of V. psalliotae.

Abstract: the present work evaluated 36 arabic coffee (coffea arabica l.) f3 progenies, originated from crosses among cultivars catuaí vermelho iac 46 and catuaí vermelho iac 81 and access iac 1110 (ba-10). this last cultivar came from india and exhibits sh2 and sh3 rust resistance genes. the experiment was installed in 1988 at the experimental center of the agronomic institute (iac/apta), in campinas, using random blocks design with six repetitions and two plants per plot. field evaluations included yield (average of seven annual harvests), vegetative vigor, resistance to leaf rust, plant size, color of young leaves and complete fruit maturation period. based on these evaluations, plants exhibiting high yield, good vegetative vigor, low height, and resistance to the leaf rust agent hemileia vastatrix were selected. fruit yield of selected plants was calculated and seeds were characterized according to type (flat, peaberry and elephant), outturn and grain size. a total of 11 optimal f3 progenies were identified as rust resistant. by further classifications, 39 plants out from these progenies were selected, along with 15 plants from other 25 evaluated progenies. laboratory analyses lead to a final selection of 18 coffee trees, all exhibiting leaf rust resistance, high yield and low height. also, f4 progenies of selected plants had been evaluated regarding height and leaf rust resistance, at seedling stage, in greenhouse conditions. eighteen plants were selected for further analysis and move forward from f3 to f4 generation in the coffee breeding program developed by iac.

Abstract: Background Despite the fact that coffee rust was first investigated scientifically more than a century ago, and that the disease is one of the major constraints to coffee production - constantly changing the socio-economic and historical landscape of the crop - critical aspects of the life cycle of the pathogen, Hemileia vastatrix, remain unclear. The asexual urediniospores are regarded as the only functional propagule: theoretically, making H. vastatrix a clonal species. However, the well-documented emergence of new rust pathotypes and the breakdown in genetic resistance of coffee cultivars, present a paradox. Methods and Results Here, using computer-assisted DNA image cytometry, following a modified nuclear stoichiometric staining technique with Feulgen, we show that meiosis occurs within the urediniospores. Stages of spore development were categorised based on morphology, from the spore-mother cell through to the germinating spore, and the relative nuclear DNA content was quantified statistically at each stage. Conclusions Hidden sexual reproduction disguised within the asexual spore (cryptosexuality) could explain why new physiological races have arisen so often and so quickly in Hemileia vastatrix. This could have considerable implications for coffee breeding strategies and may be a common event in rust fungi, especially in related genera occupying the same basal phylogenetic lineages.

Abstract: the occurrence of teliospores of hemileia vastatrix in brazilis confirmed for the first time and clearly documented under light microscopy and sem. additionally, voucher specimens of leaves containing sori with germinated and non-germinated teliospores were deposited in a local herbarium (herbário vic). the previous publication claiming to provide an account of the occurrence of teliospores of h. vastatrix in brazil did not include appropriate images or an indication of voucher specimens. observations during 2006, at a site in the zona da mata coffee-growing region of minas gerais, brazil, revealed the presence of teliospores during the winter months (july-september), probably triggered by the fall in temperature and decreasing rainfall immediately prior to and during this period. a significant proportion of these teliospores exhibited abnormal germination: the number of promycelial cells varying from three to seven, with or without the production of sterigmata. basidiospores were variable in size and shape, possibly indicating genetic instability, and this is discussed in relation to the life-cycle of coffee leaf rust.

Abstract: Coffee leaf rust (CLR), caused by the fungus Hemileia vastatrix, is among the most important diseases affecting coffee all over the world. In Kenya, it is currently the second most important disease, and breeding coffee to obtain new resistant cultivars has been a priority. Over time, new rust pathogenic races able to infect hitherto resistant coffee genotypes have been registered. To date, 49 races of the pathogen have been characterized all over the world. The most recent races to be characterized are able to infect derivatives of Timor Hybrid (HDT), which is a major source of resistance in breeding programs. This work aimed to identify new races of the pathogen in Kenya, emphasizing infected leaves sampled from CLR resistant varieties and breeding lines collected from two sites (Ruiru and Koru). Twenty-four samples were characterized, out of which 22 samples corresponded to new races of the pathogen. A total of six new races (III, XVII, XXIII, XXXVI, XLI and XLII) were characterized, revealing three new virulence genes (v1, v7, v8) and possibly a fourth virulence gene, the v9. This finding represents a serious threat to coffee production and also a challenge to coffee breeding programs that are in progress in Kenya.

Abstract: the present research, considered exploratory by the author, was dons in order to study leaf invertases of two coffee varieties, geisha (sh1sh5) and kent sh2sh5) inoculated with races iii (v1v5) and xxiv (v2v4) of hemileia vastatrix. the geisha coffee is susceptible to race iii and resistant to race xxiv, while kent coffee has opposite reactions. in each pair of leaves, one was inoculated and the other was kept as control. determinations of the invertases were made at 6 and 16 days after inoculation. the preliminary results showed that in the susceptible combinations there was no changes in the invertases, that were the same as in the healthy plants, with the maximum of activity at ph 4.5. in the resistant combinations, however, it was found an "acid invertase ph 4.0" on the 6th day after inoculations. this invertase was absent in both healthy and infected plants of the same varieties. the occurrence on the "acid invertase ph 4.0" is related to the decrease in the sucrose content of the leaves. the author suggest three hipothesis that could explain a relation of this "acid invertase ph 4.0" with the coffee rust pathogenesis. these hipothesis, which could occur alone or simultaneously are: 1) the sucrose would be deviated to the formation of defense substances, such as phenols, phytoalexins and others. 2) the sucrose would be deviated to others parts of the plant, in 2l physiological process similar to that of the leaves in senescence. 3) there would be an increase in the respiration and metabolism of the infected tissues, with the implicit consumption of the stored energy.

Abstract: the development of rust epidemics in tropical conditions of brazil has been different than previously expected. despite of high humidity the development is reduced to a minimum during the summer. high temperature was assumed to have a detrimental effect on the rust development. this paper reports the results of a study concerning the effect of high temperature on hemileia vastatrix development. temperature treatment of inoculated young plants at 400c for 4 hours in 4 consecutive days was sufficient to prevent rust development. the curative effect was permanent indicating that the fungus was destroyed inside the plant tissue. practical implications of such results are considered.

Abstract: rust, caused by hemileia vastatrix, is the main disease that decreases coffee production in brazil. new and enhanced methods to reduce rust intensity that can be integrated with modern genetic and chemical approaches need to be investigated. considering that many plant species supplied with silicon (si) show increased resistance to several pathogens, this study examined the possible effect of this element in increasing chlorogenic acid (ca) concentrations in coffee leaves and, consequently, increasing the level of resistance to rust. plants (cv. "catuaí vermelho iac 44") were inoculated with h. vastatrix after growing for 35 days in a hydroponic culture amended with 0 (-si) or 2 (+si) mm si. concentration of si in leaf tissues was of 0.36 and 0.42 dag/kg for -si and +si treatments, respectively, but without a statistically significant difference. the area under rust progress curve was 154.5 and 119.4 for -si and +si treatments, respectively, but without significant statistical difference. for non-inoculated plants, the concentrations of total ca and caffeoyl-quinic acid (cqa)compounds (dicqa) were similar between -si and +si treatments. even though there was an increase of 236.4 and 257.1%, respectively, for total ca and dicqa for +si when compared to -si treatment at 30 days after inoculation with h. vastatrix, reduction on rust severity was not obtained once the fungus had already colonized the leaf tissues. therefore, regardless of the increase in the concentrations of chlorogenic acid on leaves, coffee resistance to h. vastatrix infection was not potentialized by si.
