The biology of plants transformed with chimeric class I chitinase and beta -1,3-glucanase genes



The biology of plants transformed with chimeric class I chitinase and beta -1,3-glucanase genes



Workshop on engineering plants against pests and pathogens,11-13 January 1993 Madrid, Spain: 27



Combinations of class I beta -1,3-glucanase and chitinase, which are induced in plants infected with microbial pathogens, are potent fungicides in vitro. This finding suggests that these enzymes may be important in the defence against fungal infection.
