In response to the exogenous application of elicitors and attempted invasion by pathogens, plants exhibit a wide range of defense reactions. To understand the defense mechanisms at the level of gene activation and deactivation, differential screenings were performed to isolate cDNA clones which are differentially expressed in pathogen-inoculated resistant(More)
A pathogenesis-related protein induced by infection with Ascochyta rabiei was purified from intercellular washing fluid of chickpea (Cicer arietinum L.) leaves. Amino-terminal sequencing identified the protein, named PR-5a, as a thaumatin-like protein. The isoelectric point was determined with 6.5 and the molecular mass is 16 kDa. Therefore, chickpea PR-5a(More)
