PLANT RESISTANCE STRATEGIES AGAINST THE VIRAL PATHOGENSSiddharam Math, Hiralal Sonawane Vilas Patil, Sagar Arya and Avinash Ade
Pests and pathogenic interaction might be beneficiary mostly for the pathogen only, in some case there may be a symbiotic association between them. Worldwide there is approximately 70,000 different types of pathogens that are damaging agricultural crops. The plants withstand against the pathogenic attack by expressing many genes and by signaling mechanism. In case of viral pathogens, the proteins like Viral Capsid Protein are majorly responsible for the hypersensitive response. RNA silencing have also been used as a tool for the inhibition of viral gene expression.
