Helminthosporium victoriae toxin, which affects only hosts of the toxin-producing fungus, causes loss of electrolytes from roots, leaves, and coleoptiles of treated plants. Root hair cells lost the ability to plasmolyze after 20 minutes exposure to toxin in solution; comparable resistant cells retained plasmolytic ability during 3 hours exposure. Toxin… CONTINUE READING
