The antioxidant systems vis-à-vis reactive oxygen species during plant – pathogen interaction

  title={The antioxidant systems vis-{\`a}-vis reactive oxygen species during plant – pathogen interaction},
  author={Laura De Gara and Maria Concetta de Pinto and Franca Tommasi},
Plant resistance to pathogens requires the activation of complex metabolic pathways in the infected cells, aimed at recognizing pathogen presence and hindering its propagation within plant tissues. In spite of this both compatible and incompatible responses induce alterations in plant metabolism, only in the latter the plant is able to efficiently block pathogen penetration without suffering excessive damage. One of the most studied incompatible responses is based on the hypersensitive response… CONTINUE READING
