 Title    An Improved Procedure for the Quantitative Estimation of the Rust Fungus in Infected Plant Tissue  
 Abstract    A quantitative estimation of the rust fungus in infected wheat leaves was possible following enzymatic hydrolysis of the chitin and colorimetric determination of the N-acetyl-glucosamine released. The apparently complex cell wall structure of the fungal structures made it necessary, how­ ever, to use an enzyme mixture of chitinase and cellulase in order to make accessible the chitin of the cell wall for diges­ tion by chitinase. In applying this method the measurement is not appreciably influenced by already formed uredio-spores as would otherwise be the case were the chitin to be determined on the basis of glucosamine after chemical hydrolysis.

 Title    Sclerotization of Insect Cuticle in a Cell-Free System  
 Abstract    Incubation o f deproteinized larval cuticle (chitin flakes) with purified arylphorin (calli-phorin) or larval haemolymph o f Calliphora vicina resulted in the formation o f a chitin-protein complex. Enzymatic oxidation o f N-ß-alanyldopam ine (N D A B) in the presence o f chitin flakes or the chitin-protein com plex, resulted in various degrees o f cross-linking o f N B A D -quinone formed with chitin. This study confirms the involvement o f arylphorin in the process o f quinone tanning o f insect cuticle.

 Title    Partially N-Deacetylated Chitin Oligomers (Pentamer to Heptamer) are Potential Elicitors for (+)-Pisatin Induction in Pea Epicotyls  
 Abstract    Oligomers (dimer to heptamer) of chitosan and their partially/completely N-acetylated derivatives were examined for (+)-pisatin-inducing activities in pea epicotyl elicitor assay at concentrations ranging from 6.25 to 100 j.ig/ml. The structures of the oligomers were analyzed by 'H NM R and M A L D I TOF MS spectrometers. The chitosan oligomers from dimer to tetramer were inactive, while the pentamer exhibited a moderate activity at 100 |ig/ml. The hexamer showed a pronounced activity at 100 |ag/ml, whereas the oligomer had no activity at the higher concentrations. Although the chitosan heptamer induced a moderate amount of (+)-pisatin (ca. 60 j.ig/g fr. wt.) at 50 (.ig/ml, the oligomer did not elicit pisatin formation at 100 |ig/ml. The dimer to tetramer of both partially N-deacetylated chitin (DAC) and chitin were totally inactive. The DAC pentamers (d.a. 31%, 52%), DAC hexamers (d.a. 26%, 41%), and DAC heptamers (d.a. 26%, 36%) exhibited significant elicitor activities at lower concen­ trations (6.25-25 [.ig/ml) than the native chitosan oligomers. The chitin pentamer to heptamer had weak or no activity. Both glucosamine and N-acetylglucosamine were inactive in the assay. These facts suggest that the DAC pentamer to heptamer may act as elicitors for pisatin induction in pea-fungus interactions.
