Chemical 'vaccine' helps plants repel pathogens
Chemical ’vaccine’ helps plants repel pathogens
Scientists knew that plants wage chemical war against bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Now they've learned how to "vaccinate" tomato plants with a natural chemical to boost their defenses against a pest that makes leaves shrivel up and die. When plants come under attack from invading bacteria, viruses or fungi, they mount a two-pronged response, producing both offensive chemicals to kill invaders and defensive chemicals to prevent infestations from spreading.
