Increase of chalcone synthase mRNA in pathogen-inoculated soybeans with race-specific resistance is different in leaves and roots.


Soybeans (Glycine max [L.] Merr.) respond to pathogens by producing isoflavonoid-derived phytoalexins. Chalcone synthase (CHS) is the first enzyme of the flavonoid/isoflavonoid biosynthetic pathway. We investigated changes in the steady state levels of CHS mRNA and other specific mRNAs at increasing times after inoculation in two different race-specific… (More)
