Identification and Use of cDNAS of Phenylalanine Ammonia-Lyase and 4-Coumarate:CoA LIGASE mRNAS in Studies of the Induction of Phytoalexin Biosynthetic Enzymes in Cultured Parsley Cells
In the present study, parsley suspension culture cells are treated with a cell wall preparation of Phytophthora megasperma var. glycinia and this interaction is considered as a model system for plant-fungal pathogen interactions with respect to phytoalexin biosynthesis. The relevance of this system for these studies can best be understood by a general discussion of phytoalexins and their biosynthesis in more intensively researched plant families, such as the Leguminosae.
