Project: Role of abscisic acid in the interaction of tomato with broad spectrum pathogens and arbuscular mycorrhizae
- project duration
- 01-JAN-03 – 31-DEC-06
- The role of ABA in the interaction between tomato and broadspectrum pathogens such as Botrytis cinerea and Sclerotinia sclerotiorum and mycorrhizae such as Glomus spp. Will be studied by using ABA biosynthesis mutants in tomato and ABA biosynthesis inhibitors. A possible interference of ABA with ethylene and/or jasmonate dependent plant defense will also be studied.
