Hairy roots of Tagetes patula were treated with fungal extracts from 3 different fungi. Treated roots were found to accumulate thiophenes at a higher level than untreated control cultures. The kinetics of thiophene formation varied with the fungus from which the elicitor was prepared, elicitor concentration and duration of exposure.
