Two elicitors, termed herein as the botrycin and the cinerein, have been isolated from the crude mycelial cell wall and from culture filtrate preparations, respectively, of a fungal necrotrophic pathogen Botrytis cinerea (Pers. et Fries). In grapevine (Vitis vinifera L. cv. Limberger) both elicitors caused the formation of necrotic lesions that mimic a typical hypersensitive response and apoptosis-related events including protoplast condensation and DNA laddering. Infiltration of minute amounts… CONTINUE READING
