Silicon enhances photochemical efficiency and adjusts mineral nutrient absorption in Magnaporthe oryzae infected rice plants

Abstract

Silicon (Si) has been verified to play an important role in enhancing plant resistance against pathogens, but the exact mechanisms remain unclear. Two near-isogenic lines of rice (Oryza sativa L.), CO39 (blast susceptible), and C101LAC (Pi-1) (blast resistant), were hydroponically grown to study the effects of exogenous silicon application on the changes of… (More)
