Transcript of "Plant defense"

  1. 2. Types of Plant Defenses <ul><li>Constitutive </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The defense is always present in the plant </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Inducible </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The defense that are produced when a plant is injured or detects foreign pathogen </li></ul></ul>
  2. 3. Constitutive Defenses <ul><li>Cell walls </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Prevents pathogens from entering the cell </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Waxy epidermal cuticle </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Prevents water loss and micro bacterial from entering epidermal </li></ul></ul>
  3. 4. Constitutive Defenses <ul><li>Bark </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Keeps pathogens and insects from going to the living cells underneath the bark </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Thorns </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reduce feeding by large herbivores by limiting the feeding rate. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 5. Inducible Defenses <ul><li>Toxic chemicals </li></ul><ul><li>Pathogen degrading enzymes </li></ul><ul><li>Deliberate cell suicide </li></ul>
  5. 6. Secondary Compounds <ul><li>Secondary compounds have negative impacts on herbivores and pathogens </li></ul><ul><li>They are toxic to herbivores and microbes </li></ul><ul><li>The production of the compounds is increased when plant is being attacked by a herbivore or a pathogen </li></ul>
  6. 7. Secondary Compounds <ul><li>Examples </li></ul><ul><li>Methol Linalool- used as an anesthetic </li></ul><ul><li>Carotene- used as an antioxidant and for orange coloring </li></ul><ul><li>Altropine-used to treat motion sickness </li></ul><ul><li>Scopolamine- used to treat motion sickness </li></ul><ul><li>Sennoside- used as a laxative </li></ul>
  7. 8. Plants and Herbivores Co-evolution <ul><li>Silica-rich grass </li></ul><ul><li>Toxic Chemicals </li></ul><ul><li>Different tooth structures and special enzymes to digest the plants </li></ul><ul><li>Let fungi and bacteria weaken the plant defenses </li></ul><ul><li>Enzymes to reduce toxins, eat clay and other minerals to reduce poison </li></ul>
