Title:
IN VITRO GRAFTING AS A TOOL FOR INVESTIGATING THE HYPERSENSITIVITY OF EUROPEAN PLUM (PRUNUS DOMESTICA L.) TO THE PLUM POX VIRUS 
Abstract:
The hypersensitive response of Prunus domestica to the Plum pox virus (PPV) was investigated in a model system by in vitro grafting of virus free and virus infected plums with hypersensitive genotypes to confirm the results obtained ex vitro. Shoot-tips were grafted onto rootstocks with a V-cut at the scion. Successful graft union formation ranged from 80 to 90{%}. The defense mechanism was observed by macroscopic observations. Furthermore, the intergrowth of root and scion was microscopically o...    »
