Plants generate reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the apoplast in response to pathogen attack, especially following resistance (R) gene-mediated pathogen recognition; however, the mechanisms activating ROS generation remain unknown. Here, we demonstrate that RKN (Meloidogyne incognita) infection rapidly induces ROS accumulation in the roots of tomato… CONTINUE READING
