Two Theobroma cacao genotypes with contrasting pathogen tolerance show aberrant transcriptional and ROS responses after salicylic acid treatment.

Fister AS, O'Neil ST, Shi Z, Zhang Y, Tyler BM, Guiltinan MJ, Maximova SN - J. Exp. Bot. (2015)

Bottom Line: Varietal differences in defence responses provide insights into the mechanisms of resistance and are a key resource for plant breeders.Transient overexpression of TcNPR1, a major transcriptional regulator of the SA-dependent plant immune system, also increased pathogen tolerance in cacao leaves.These experiments revealed critical insights regarding the molecular differences between cacao varieties, which will allow a better understanding of defence mechanisms to help guide breeding programmes.

GO enrichment by parametric analysis of gene set enrichment (PAGE). Z scores of select GO terms calculated using PAGE on statistically significantly differentially regulated genes in (A) Sca6, (B) ICS1, and (C) averaging both genotypes across all stages. (D) Z scores of select GO terms with statistically significant enrichment in both genotypes. Detailed data are provided in Supplementary Tables 5−9.
