The use of modified viral genes and host defense genes to obtain virus resistant plants

Workshop on engineering plants against pests and pathogens, 1-13 January 1993, Madrid, Spain: 48-49

The use of modified viral genes and host defense genes to obtain virus resistant plants

Current data on the molecular genetics of plant defence mechanisms known as systemic acquired resistance (SAR) and cross-protection and on their application to the development of virus resistant plants are summarized. SAR is the development of broad resistance to a wide variety of pathogens in the pathogen-free parts of a plant reacting hypersensitively to an attack. The hypersensitive response of tobacco Samsun NN to tobacco mosaic tobamovirus (TMV) infection was used as a model system.
