  • Clubroot is a soil-borne disease of the Brassicaceae caused by Plasmodiophora brassicae Woronin. This disease has become one of the main disease of Brassica rapa and other cruciferous crops worldwide. In China,vegetable crops of Brassica rapa make an important role in cruciferous crops. This review introduces the biological features,life cycles,host symptoms and pathotypes differentiation of this disease. Disease management strategies used in China are also involved,especially strategy based on genetic breeding. The research works and application of resistant genes are highlighted. Furthermore,for sustainable development of resistant Brassica rapa breeding,potential problems of using resistant varieties and some prospects are addressed.

  • In recent years,the impact of noval epidemic diseases(such as Fusarium wilt,black rot,and clubroot)and disastrous weather(e.g. extreme low temperature)on cabbage production has become more and more serious. So it is of great significance for the sustainable development of cabbage industry to cultivate new varieties of resistance to disease and stress. In this paper,the studies on the inheritance and breeding of disease resistance and stress tolerance in cabbage were reviewed from the aspects of identification and selection of disease resistance materials,innovation of germplasm resources,mapping and cloning of resistance genes/QTLs,and breeding of new varieties with high quality and multi-resistance and the main problems existed at present and the prospect of breeding were pointed out.

  • Advances in Research of the SELF-PRUNING Gene Family and Plant Architecture Regulatory Functions in Tomato
  • QI Shiming and LIANG Yan
  • Acta Horticulturae Sinica. 2020, 47(9): 1705-1714. DOI:10.16420/j.issn.0513-353x.2019-0461
  • Abstract ( 66 ) PDF (1492KB) ( 87 )    
  • The SELF-PRUNING(SP)gene belongs to a class of genes that regulate plant growth habits and flowering,it has been found in tomato to regulate the determinate of growth habits. Furthermore,it is homologous to the CENRORADIALIS(CEN)gene in Antirrhinum majus L. and the TERMINAL FLOWER 1(TFL1)gene in Arabidopsis thaliana. At present,eight members of SP gene family(SP,SP9D,SP2I,SP3D,SP5G,SP6A,SIGI,and SPGB)have been reported. The studies have shown that the family genes should directly or indirectly regulate the growth habits and affect the shoot architecture of tomato plants. Therefore,in this paper,the research on the genetic structure features,genetic relationships,expression characteristics,and plant architecture regulation of the SP family in tomato is reviewed,in order to regulate for growth habits of tomato,obtaining compact strains,achieve homogenization and modern mechanized harvesting,and agronomic traits and provide effective technical support.

  • Abstract ( 63 ) PDF (750KB) ( 101 )    
  • Pepper(Capsicum spp.),originating in Central and South America,was introduced into China in the 16th century. Here discussed the spreading path of pepper across the world and provide evidence supporting its spreading route in China. After introduced into China through Zhejiang Province,C. annuum L. was first brought to North China,then to Liaoning and Hunan,and from Hunan rapidly spread to Southwest China,Northwest China and the surrounding regions,forming the spicy area in the upper and middle reaches of Yangtze River,the mild spicy area in North China,Northeast China and Northwest China,and slightly spicy area in the coastal region of East and South China. C. frutescens L. and C. chinense Jacq. was first introduced into China through Taiwan,then from Taiwan to Hainan and Yunnan. The motivation underlying the pepper spread in China was discussed,and its spread and cultivation history in China during the past 400 years was reviewed. Described how pepper has evolved from an ornamental crop,to a condiment crop,and now a major vegetable crop,and discussed the industrial function,value and scale of pepper in China as well as its industry position,advantage and prospect.

  • Acta Horticulturae Sinica. 2020, 47(9): 1741-1751. DOI:10.16420/j.issn.0513-353x.2019-0534
  • Abstract ( 34 ) PDF (775KB) ( 54 )    
  • Chilli veinal mottle virus(ChiVMV)was discovered in 1979 in peninsular Malaysia,and was subsequently found to spread all over the world. In China,the occurrence of ChiVMV was first reported in Shaanxi in 2003. Since then,incidences of ChiVMV have been noted in many other main pepper producing areas,such as Sichuan,Hunan,and Guizhou. ChiVMV has become one of the main viruses seriously jeopardizing pepper production. In this pape,we have emphatically summarized the disease symptoms induced by ChiVMV,viral transmission and strain differentiation,viral genome structure and function,the identification of pepper resistance to ChiVMV,resistance inheritance,and localization of molecular markers associated with resistance,with an attempt to provide theoretical references for further studies on breeding resistant varieties.

In recent years,potato phytoplasma disease has severely influenced potato quality and yield. The transmission characteristics and taxonomic studies of phytoplasma disease were described firstly. And the current status of phytoplasma genome and plasmid research,research progress of secretory proteins,host resistance genes,and pathogenesis mechanisms were summarized. Then several potato phytoplasma diseases were illustrated,the research difficulty and tendency of phytoplasma disease were also discussed. This review can provide reference to phytoplasma disease research,rapid detection in field and epidemic forecasting of phytoplasma disease,dig out phytoplasmas core function genes and potato disease resistance breeding.

In the study of cucurbits crops,in vitro gynogenesis is an effective way to obtain haploid and double haploid. Here we mainly review the research overview and major factors of the in vitro unfertilized ovule and ovary culture in cucurbit crops and summarize the progress in the identification of regenerated plants,haploid doubling,and related application. Besides,the existing problems and further research directions are also analyzed. Finally,the prospects for the development of haploid research in cucurbits crops are briefly prospected. This provides a reference for the following studies on the inducing haploid development of in vitro gynogenesis in cucurbits crops.
