Specific binding of a hypersensitive lignification elicitor from Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici to the plasma membrane from wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)

We have recently reported the isolation and characterization of a glycoprotein (Mr 67 000) from germ-tube walls of Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici which elicits the cellular hypersensitive lignification response in wheat (G. Kogel et al., 1988, Physiol. Mol. Plant Pathol. 33, 173–185). The present study uses this glycoprotein, referred to as Pgt elicitor… CONTINUE READING
