Abstract
Programa Oficial de Doctorado en Biología Celular y Molecular. 5004V01 [Abstract] The biological control agent (BCA) Penicillium rubens (formerly Penicillium oxalicum) strain 212 (PO212) was employed as inducer of resistance in pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) against the vascular pathogen Verticillium dahliae Kleb. PO212 protected pepper plants against V. dahliae. The observed induced resistance in pepper involves cell wall reinforcement with an increase in lignin as well as other defenses as PR proteins. Signaling of the defense response triggered in pepper or tomato by PO212 is mediated by hydrogen peroxide, salicylic acid, ethylene and jasmonic acid. Induced resi...
