A species-specific recognition system directs haustorium development in the parasitic plant Triphysaria (Scrophulariaceae)

Abstract

Parasitic plants use host molecules to trigger developmental programs essential for parasitism. One such program governs the initiation, development, and function of haustoria, parasite-specific organs responsible for attachment and invasion of host tissues. Haustoria development can be initiated by several different molecules produced by appropriate host… (More)
