Cell biology of fungal infection of plants

Hardham, Adrienne R


Plants are, in general, resistant to the attempts of potential fungal pathogens to infect them. Those fungi that do succeed in establishing infection and disease, however, cause widespread environmental damage and economic losses. In order to establish infection, fungal pathogens must overcome highly effective, constitutive physical and chemical barriers to pathogen ingress. They must avoid inducing additional host defenses, and they must be able to deploy mechanisms for obtaining from the...[Show more]
