Quantification of Ethylene Production in Tomato Leaves Infected by Xanthomonas euvesicatoria
Authors:  Jung-Gun Kim, William Stork and Mary Beth Mudgett, date: 02/05/2016, view: 9979, Q&A: 0
Ethylene is a gaseous plant hormone controlling fruit ripening, flower opening, leaf senescence as well as abscission, and disease symptom development. Ethylene plays a critical role in the bacterial pathogen Xanthomonas euvesicatoria (X. ...
