Induction of Plant Genes by Compatible and Incompatible Virus-Plant Interactions
cDNAs were cloned to one host mRNA induced by a compatible virus-plant interaction and several host mRNAs induced by an incompatible virus-plant interaction. Regulatory sequences in two of the corresponding genes were analysed and three of the inducible genes were constitutively expressed in transgenic tobacco to test a putative role of the encoded proteins in defence mechanisms.
