Effects of Feeding Spodoptera littoralis on Lima Bean Leaves . III . Membrane Depolarization and Involvement of Hydrogen Peroxide 1


In response to herbivore (Spodoptera littoralis) attack, lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus) leaves produced hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in concentrations that were higher when compared to mechanically damaged (MD) leaves. Cellular and subcellular localization analyses revealed that H2O2 was mainly localized in MD and herbivore-wounded (HW) zones and spread… (More)
