Abstract: ALTERATIONS IN BIOCHEMICAL COMPONENTS IN MESTA PLANTS:Yellow vein mosaic disease of mesta (kenaf, Hibiscus cannabinus L.; and roselle, H. sabdariffa L.) is a new entrant to the disease scenario and it is associated with a novel monopartite Begomovirus. Changes in different biochemical parameters in diseased mesta plants were observed as compared to healthy ones. Isozyme pattern and assays of different enzymes, namely catalase, acid phosphatase, peroxidase, esterase, polyphenol oxidase and superoxide dismutase,… Show more

“…In previous studies, the value of chlorophyll a in the mistletoe has been shown to be significantly lower than hosts. The invasion of parasite in the mango (host) has also been reported to alter the ratio between chlorophyll a and b, probably affecting the photosynthetic efficiency [9,12,30,31]. In our study, chlorophyll a content of mistletoe was found to be higher than chlorophyll b wihile Oyetunji and Edagbo [18] showed that both host (Citrus, Irvingia) and African mistletoe (Tapinanthus bangwensis) have higher chlorophyll b contents.…”

“…plantarum GR53 treatment attenuated that consequence. Thimmaiah (1999) and Chatterjee and Ghosh (2008) suggested that the inhibition of phenolic compounds synthesis in plants during pathogen infection indicates the susceptibility of plants. The lower level of phenolic content in R. solani-infected Chinese cabbage plants revealed that this cultivar was susceptible to R. solani induced disease.…”

“…These results suggest that the presence of PWV can affect the content of antioxidant molecules in rinds. It is well established that the profile of phenolic compounds can vary in plants infected by fungal pathogens, insects and viruses (Chatterjee & Ghosh, 2008;Lattanzio, Lattanzio, & Cardinal, 2006). PWV currently affects passion fruit plants in Brazil, where it is the most economically important viral disease of this tropical fruit crop.…”
