Indirect evidence suggests that vascular coatings formed by plants in response to stress consist of suberin-like substances containing lipid and phenolic compounds. To provide more direct chemical evidence that coatings are suberin, we used a natural pathogen, Verticillium albo-atrum, or a stress-responsive hormone, abscisic acid, to induce coating in two isolines of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum L. cultivar Craigella) that are resistant or susceptible to the pathogen. Using treated petioles… CONTINUE READING
