Cultured cells of white pine show genetic resistance to axenic blister rust hyphae
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.
