Plant Cell. 1992;4:1333-44 pubmed publisher..The results are discussed in relation to the hypothesis that there are discrete organizational channels for sterol and sesquiterpene biosynthesis in potato and other Solanaceous species...

Genome. 2004;47:475-92 pubmed..infestans resistance QTLs detected in tomato coincided with chromosomal locations of previously mapped R genes and QTLs for resistance to P. infestans in potato, suggesting functional conservation of resistance within the Solanaceae. ..
- DiLeo M, Bostock R, Rizzo D. Phytophthora ramorum does not cause physiologically significant systemic injury to California bay laurel, its primary reservoir host. Phytopathology. 2009;99:1307-11 pubmed publisher..Consequently, it is highly likely that bay laurel will continue to be widely available as a host for P. ramorum in California forests, which has long-term implications for the composition of these forests...
