Acibenzolar-s-methyl-induced resistance to Japanese pear scab is associated with potentiation of multiple defense responses.


ABSTRACT This study reports the mode of action of acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM) against Japanese pear scab, caused by Venturia nashicola. Pretreatment of potted Japanese pear trees with ASM reduced scab symptoms and potentiated several lines of plant defense response. This included transcripts encoding polygalacturonase-inhibiting protein (PGIP) that were… (More)
