Abstract

Hypersensitive resistance to axenically cultured Cronartium ribicola was displayed by subcultured callus of Pinus lambentiana. Cellular resistance to a destructive rust disease can now be studied at the macromolecular level through use of cloned cells of both host and pathogen in a system amenable to emerging recombinant DNA technology.
