A Proteomics Perspective on Biocontrol and Plant Defense Mechanism

  • Gurusamy Chinnasamy


Plants are invaded by a large number of pathogens and they resist pathogen attacks with preformed defenses and by inducing defense responses. Nature is bestowed with many biocontrol agents including plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) and Trichoderma species. PGPR colonise the rhizosphere and regulate plant growth by inducing defense responses in plants via an induced systemic resistance (ISR) and/or a systemic acquired resistance (SAR), increase the availability of nutrients to plants, produce growth hormones, suppress phytopathogens, release volatile compounds, secrete antimicrobial metabolites and decrease phytotoxic microbial communities in the rhizosphere. Trichoderma harzianum controls phytopathogenic fungi by secreting cell wall-degrading enzymes, antibiosis and stimulating plants to produce their own anti-microbial compounds. Though genome sequencing has already been done for some symbiotic and phytopathogenic bacteria, genome sequencing of five PGPR has been only established recently. Agrobacterium radiobacter K84 and four strains of Pseudomonas fluorescens, Pf0-1, Pf-5, Q8r1 and SBW-25, are being sequenced. The utilization of proteomics to explore biocontrol agents and their mechanisms in plant disease management is in the stage of infancy. It has the potential to revolutionize the way research is conducted on the biocontrol agents and plant defense mechanisms. The interaction between a biocontrol agent, a phytopathogen and a plant brings significant changes to the plant proteome and metabolism. Recently, globular and organellar proteomics approaches have been employed to study the changes in plant proteome after treating with biocontrol agent. In addition to biocontrol agents, proteomics studies on plant defense mechanisms against fungal, bacterial and viral pathogens are also discussed.
