Phytoalexins are antimicrobial substances produced by plants in response to infection by the pathogen or elicitation by abiotic agents. Since isolation of the pterocarpan pisatins (), 91 chemically diverse compounds have been isolated from the plant families Leguminosae, Gramineae, Rosaceae, Cruciferae, Compositae, and so on, structures of these phytoalexins are summarized in the earlier.

The diversity, complexity, and toxicity of phytoalexins may provide clues about their function. The diversity of phytoalexins may reflect a plant survival strategy. That is, if a plant produces different phytoalexins from its neighbors, it is less likely to be successfully Phytoalexins book by pathogens adapted to its neighbor's phytoalexins.

Thus, phytoalexin accumulation is just one part of an integrated series of plant responses leading from early detection to eventual neutralization of a potentially lethal invading microorganism.

Phytoalexins 1. Phytoalexins Presented By Jadhav Murlidhar S Ph.D Biotechnology [email protected] 2. • Phytoalexins are defined as "low molecular weight, anti- microbial compounds that are both synthesized and accumulated in plants after exposure to microorganisms or abiotic agents“• The term phytoalexin is derived from Greek.

The term is also used to describe toxic chemicals produced by plants themselves, which function as defensive agents against their predators. Most examples pertaining to this definition of phytotoxin are members of various classes of secondary metabolites, including alkaloids, terpenes, and especially phenolics, though not all such compounds are.

Phytoalexins are low molecular weight antimicrobial compounds that are produced by plants asa response to biotic and abiotic stresses. As such they take part in an intricate defense system whichenables plants to control invading microorganisms.

Description Phytoalexins FB2

As previously mentioned, the. phytoalexin An antimicrobial substance that is produced by a plant in response to infection by fungi or bacteria and helps to defend the plant by inhibiting the growth of invading microbes. Phytoalexins vary in their chemical nature; for example, in legumes they are mainly isoflavonoids, whereas in the potato family (Solanaceae) they are predominantly terpenes.

Glyceollins, a group of novel phytoalexins isolated from activated soy, have recently been demonstrated to be novel antiestrogens that bind to the estrogen receptor (ER) and inhibit estrogen-induced tumor progression. Our previous publications have focused specifically on inhibition of tumor formation and growth by the glyceollin mixture, which Cited by: Book: Phytoalexins.

However, the specific role of phytoalexins in disease resistance is not clear for the majority of host‐parasite systems. Much of the research on phytoalexins has relied on the identification of induced antifungal compounds and correlating their presence with resistance.

This book /5(6). Phytoalexins accumulated in selected woody plants in response to microbial attack or stress are reviewed and listed with respect to their chemical structure and probable biogenetic origin.

The host-pathogen systems from which they have been isolated are described. The review also considers the antimicrobial activity of the phytoalexins to the causal pathogens and other by:.
