  1. 1. Barberry plays an important role in natural infection of stripe rust on wheat in China Zhensheng Kang State Key Laboratory of Crop Stress Biology for Arid Areas, Northwest A & F University, Yangling, Shaanxi, China
  2. 2.  Diseased area: between 3-6 million ha.  Yield losses: 10-50%. Years Losses (million tonnes) 1950 6.0 1964 3.2 1990 2.6 2002 1.4 Wheat stripe rust is a destructive disease throughout all winter wheat regions and is considered the most important disease of wheat in China.
  3. 3. Virulence variation for rusts maybe due to  sexual hybridization  mutations  somatic hybridization However, the mechanism of sexual hybridization for Pst has been neglected since the sexual stage was presumed to be absent. Resistant wheat cultivars Rust virulence variation Huge yield losses
  4. 4. In 2010, some Berberis spp. were shown to serve as alternate hosts for the wheat stripe rust pathogen.  B. chinensis,  B. holstii,  B. koreana  B. vulgaris. Jin et al. Phytopathology, 2010
  5. 5. Question: Does the sexual stage of wheat stripe rust occur under natural conditions, particularly in China?  Field Surveys for Berberis spp.  Susceptible test of Berberis to stripe rust  Isolation of stripe rust from nature-infected Berberis  Virulence test for recovered isolates  Mock-inoculation on Berberis in fields
  6. 6. Surveys for Berberis spp.in China  215 of the ~500 described Berberis spp. in the world are endemic to China;  Many of China's Berberis spp. distribute in the western over-summering areas (hot-spot). Western China: Sichuan : 81; Chongqin : 30; Yunnan : 78; Tibet: 55; Guansu : 26; Shaanxi: 20; Guizhou : 19; Qinghai : 13; Xinjiang : 5; Ningxia : 3; Central China: Hubei : 24; Henan : 7; Shanxi : 10; Hunan : 9; Anhui : 2; Eastern China: Distribution of Berberis species in different regions of China
  7. 7. Surveys for Berberis spp.in China
  8. 8. No barberry plant Barberry plants distributedBarberry plants with rusts 35 barberry species were surveyed and identified. Over-summering area
  9. 9. Are these Berberis spp. susceptible to wheat stripe rust ?
  10. 10. Identification of Berberis spp. as alternate hosts of wheat stripe rust in green house Dew chamber We collected seeds and seedlings of Berberis spp. from the fields and inoculated using telia of Pst in the greenhouse.
  11. 11. Normally, we see pycnia on the leaves of susceptible Berberis spp. 10-13 days after inoculation. Infection of basidiospore and development of pycnia Pycnia on Berberis Identification of Berberis spp. as alternate hosts of wheat stripe rust in green house
  12. 12. About 20 days after inoculation, we see aecia develop on the leaves. Aeciospores can infect wheat through the stoma and produce typical rust symptoms (uredinia). Identification of Berberis spp. as alternate hosts of wheat stripe rust in green house
  13. 13. 23 Berberis species: alternate host for Pst Successful production of pycnia, and aecia on upper and back sides of barberry leaf after inoculation Zhao, J., et al. Phytopathology, 2013, 103(9):927-934

Single Aecia from barberry Recovered isolate from single aecium Single uredium (Su) isolates Virulence test on NILs Does the sexual reproduction under natural conditions contribute to virulence variation for Pst? • The single-uredium isolates originally from aecia on naturally infected barberry plants consisted of diverse of virulence patterns, which should be due to sexual reproduction on the barberry plants.
  27. 27. Does infection of stripe rust on Barberry cause the disease in adjacent wheat?
  28. 28. Does infection of stripe rust on Barberry cause the disease in adjacent wheat?  Mock infection were performed in Gansu, China, by putting wheat tissues bearing telia on the top of barberry plants in Middle of April, 2013.  The inoculated barberry plants showed symptom in early May, 2013, and 70 Pst isolates were obtained from mock-inoculated barberry.
  29. 29.  Stripe rust appeared on wheat adjacent to the mock-inoculated barberry plants before the end of May, 2013.  No stripe rust on wheat in the same field far off mock- inoculated barberry plants, and in other fields at this time.  70 Pst isolates were obtained from nearby wheat. Does infection of stripe rust on Barberry cause the disease in adjacent wheat?
  30. 30. Comparison of pathotypes on Chinese differential hosts for Pst isolates from mock-inoculated barberry and from nearby wheat Origin Number of race Race type CYR32 CYR31 Guinong 22 Hy46-7 Other racesa Mock-inoculated barberry 70 11 1 20 1 37 Nearby wheat 70 8 0 19 8 35 a Infection type of other races were not matched with those of known Pst races. The results showed that the races derived from mock-inoculated barberry matched with those isolated from nearby wheat.
  31. 31.  23 of the 30 tested barberry species show susceptibility to Pst, indicating that there is a great diversity of potential alternate hosts for Pst in China.  20 Pst isolates obtained from different barberry species in the fields indicated that the sexual stage of Pst occurs under natural conditions.  Virulence tests for single-uredium isolates recovered from a single aecium demonstrate that the sexual reproduction contributes to virulence variation for Pst. Summary
  32. 32. Pst must now be considered a macrocyclic fungal pathogen.
