Noel T. Keen, Shigeyuki Mayama
280 pages, 39 black and white illus ISBN 0890542597
Summarizing the 8th Japan-U.S. seminar on plant-pathogen interactions this book presents
cutting-edge research on plant-microbe interactions.
Delivery and Perception of Pathogen Signals in Plants features several papers containing original, significant research on the mechanisms of plant-pathogen interactions and a historical overview of the field of plant-microbe interactions.
Plant pathologists, microbiologists, agronomists and plant biologists interested in current information on plant-pathogen interactions.
The research presented in this book utilizes plants ranging from Arabidopsis to soybean
and includes information on:
Table of Contents
emerging research dealing with how fungal pathogens compromise host plants
- mechanisms involving bacterial effector gene products that confer virulence or avirulence
functions in plants
- active plant defense signaling pathways occurring in response to recognition of pathogen elicitors
