About this book

From the molecular basis of host defense mechanisms and molecular events leading to the suppression of defense mechanisms by fungal pathogens to fungal infection processes, this work covers various aspects of molecular plant pathology. It includes initial contact, penetration and subsequent evasion of post-penetration defense mechanisms. It documents and illustrates up-to-date experimental results and hypotheses.


Contents

Molecular events during early recognition process - pathogen recognizes Host; Host recognizes pathogen; molecular events during fungal evasion of Host's defense mechanisms - cell wall; molecular events during fungal evasion of Host's defencemechanisms - lipid breakdown products and active oxygen species; molecular events during fungal evasion of Host's defense mechanisms - pathogenesis; molecular events during fungal evasion of Host's defense mechanisms - phytoalexins; molecular eventsduring fungal evasion of Host's defense mechanisms - phytocanticipins; molecular events during disease symptom development - role of toxins in cell membrane dysfunction and cell death.
