Effects of Ophiostoma ulmi and Ophiostoma novo-ulmi culture filtrates on elm cultures from genotypes with different susceptibility to Dutch elm
European Journal of Forest Pathology 28 (6), 399-407
Abstract: Cell cultures of callus tissue cultures obtained from four elm genotypes (Ulmus minor; Ulmus minor × Ulmus pumila; [Ulmus carpinifolia × Ulmus glabra] × [Ulmus wallichiana × Ulmus glabra]; and Ulmus pumila), either susceptible or resistant to Dutch elm disease (DED) were exposed to culture filtrates of Ophiostoma ulmi and Ophiostoma novo-ulmi. Elm cells were largely affected by crude culture filtrate incorporated into the media. However, the correlation between `in vivo ' cell resistance and growth in the presence of culture filtrate was poor: the effects of fungal media components were greater than that exerted by fungal exotoxins. Therefore, it is concluded that these `in vitro ' assays cannot be used to evaluate resistance sources to DED in elms, or to assess specific pathogenicity of fungal isolates.
