Abstract

Abstract Polyphenol oxidase and peroxidase activities were detected in foliar glandular trichomes of the wild, insect-resistant potato species, Solanum berthaultii. These enzyme activities may provide the basis for conversion of clear, viscous trichome exudate into a hard, brown substance which is formed rapidly after insect attack.
