In plants, the hypersensitive response (HR) is defined as a rapid cell death occurring in response to pathogen attack, and is closely related to active resistance. Initiation of the HR process begins with the recognition of the pathogen by the plant, which is mediated mainly by the pathogen avirulence genes and the plant resistance genes. Then, complex signal transduction pathways intervene, involving changes in protein phosphorylation, production of reactive oxygen species and modification of… CONTINUE READING
