Natural Resistance Mechanisms of Plants to Viruses

Edited by Loebenstein, Gad; Carr, John Peter

Hardcover  532 pp  ISBN 9781402037795      £162.00
This book is a first attempt to link well known plant resistance phenomena with emerging concepts in molecular biology. Resistance phenomena such as the local lesion response, induced resistance, "green islands" and resistance in various crop plants are linked with new information on gene-silencing mechanisms, gene silencing suppressors, movement proteins and plasmodesmatal gating, downstream signalling components, etc.

Written for plant virologists, plant molecular biologists, plant pathologists, plant applied biologists, plant breeders, general virologists
