Reduced symptoms of Verticillium wilt in transgenic tomato expressing a bacterial ACC deaminase.

Abstract

Summary Ethylene evolved during compatible or susceptible disease interactions may hasten and/or worsen disease symptom development; if so, the prevention of disease-response ethylene should reduce disease symptoms. We have examined the effects of reduced ethylene synthesis on Verticillium wilt (causal organism, Verticillium dahliae) of tomato by… (More)
