  • Patent number: 10231450
    Abstract: Agents and natural and synthetic formulations and extracts are useful in control of pathogen infection and infestation in humans, animals and plants, as well as pathogen contamination in environmental locales. A method inhibits growth or infection or infestation of a pathogen, including contacting the pathogen with an effective amount of a combination of a plant defensin or a functional natural or synthetic derivative or variant thereof and a non-defensin peptide, such as a cathelicidin peptide, a hairpin peptide, a hairpin peptide from which disulfide bridges have been removed, indolicidin, synthetic peptide CP-29, or a peptide derived from a cystatin. The combination of the defensin and peptide are synergistic compared to the use of each alone at the same individual dose as used in the combination.

  • Patent number: 10155958
    Abstract: A method for improving plant insect resistance includes providing target genes derived from insects. Constructs based on the nucleotide sequences of these target genes are designed to form interfering molecules. After being eating by insects, the plant can significantly inhibit expression of corresponding genes in insects. This inhibition is not affected by barrier of the insect digestive systems. The method can improve the insect resistance of plants, reduce pesticide applications, lower the costs of agricultural production, and protect the environment.

  • Patent number: 9526240
    Abstract: A sprayable liquid biodegradable formulation comprising biocontrol microorganisms imbedded in a dispersed starch-based bioplastic is effective for delivering biocontrol microorganisms and bioactive compounds to soil, crops and seeds and facilitating positioning of biocontrol agents in close proximity to target pests. After application with conventional spray equipment, water evaporates rapidly and the dispersed bioplastic formula remains, serving as a prolonged growth substrate for the biocontrol microorganisms. Application of the bioplastic dispersion formulation comprising Beauveria bassiana significantly reduced damages caused by the European Corn Borer in corn and the Tarnished Plant Bug in cotton. Applying a formulation of spores of a non-aflatoxigenic A. flavus isolate resulted in a 97% reduction of aflatoxin contamination of corn. The bioplastic dispersion formulation is effective in delivering crystal Bacillus thuringiens endotoxins to European Corn Borer larvae, causing 72% mortality.

  • Patent number: 9346856
    Abstract: The present disclosure embraces nucleic acid molecules found in the genome of the Citrus Leprosis Virus (CiLV), which is associated to Citrus Leprosis (CiL) disease. The cloned CiLV nucleic acid molecules can be used as probes or can be used to design oligonucleotide primers for detecting CiLV in biological samples, particularly leaves, roots and other tissues or organs of plants, such as plants from the genera Citrus and Poncirus. The cloned CiLV nucleic acid molecules are expressed in cells to provide immunogenic proteins for raising antibodies against CiLV, which can then be used to detect CiLV in biological samples. It also comprises the nucleic acid molecules represented in SEQ ID Nos. 5 and 8, in whole or part, as well as transgenic plants, such as monocots and dicots, containing the CiLV nucleic acid molecules, in any kind of combination, so that expression increases resistance to CiL disease.

The present invention relates to achieving a plant protective effect through the identification of target coding sequences and the use of recombinant DNA technologies for post-transcriptionally repressing or inhibiting expression of the target coding sequences in the cells of plant-parasitic nematodes. The disclosed gene targets are conserved and expected to be essential and sensitive to RNAi perturbation in different Pratylenchus species, facilitating genus-wide targeting by RNA interference.

  • Publication number: 20150135360
    Abstract: Transcription factor polynucleotides and polypeptides incorporated into nucleic acid constructs, including expression vectors, have been introduced into plants and were ectopically expressed. Transgenic plants transformed with many of these constructs have been shown to be more resistant to disease (in some cases, to more than one pathogen), or more tolerant to an abiotic stress (in some cases, to more than one abiotic stress). The abiotic stress may include, for example, salt, hyperosmotic stress, water deficit, heat, cold, drought, or low nutrient conditions.
