The development of new strategies to enhance resistance of plants to pathogens is instrumental in preventing agricultural losses. Lesion mimic, the spontaneous formation of lesions resembling hypersensitive response lesions in the absence of a pathogen, is a dramatic phenotype occasionally induced upon expression of certain transgenes in plants. These transgenes simulate the presence of a pathogen and, therefore, activate the plant anti-pathogen defense mechanisms and induce a state of systemic… CONTINUE READING
