Nonhost disease resistance is the most common form of disease resistance exhibited by all plants and to date this phenomenon is not yet completely understood. Understanding the mechanisms behind nonhost resistance may facilitate engineering crop plants with durable resistance. Our previous studies identified putative roles for three genes flavonol-3-O-glucosyl transferase (F3OGT), an alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and trans caffeoyl coA-3-O methyl transferase (CcoAOMT) in water deficit stress… CONTINUE READING
