The effect of protein supplied in the growth medium on plant pathogen resistance

Lonhienne, Thierry G. A. and Trusov, Yuri and Young, Anthony and Schmidt, Susanne and Paungfoo-Lonhienne, Chanyarat (2014) The effect of protein supplied in the growth medium on plant pathogen resistance. Plant Signaling and Behavior, 9 (10). ISSN 1559-2316


Externally supplied protein (bovine serum albumin, BSA) affects root development of Arabidopsis, increasing root biomass, root hair length, and root thickness. While these changes in root morphology may enhance access to soil microenvironments rich in organic matter, we show here that the presence of protein in the growth medium increases the plant’s resilience to the root pathogen Cylindrocladium sp.
