Chitosan primes plant defence mechanisms against Botrytis cinerea including Avr9/Cf-9 rapidly-elicited genes

ABSTRACT: Current protection strategies against the fungal pathogen Botrytis cinerea rely on a combination of conventional fungicides and host genetic resistance. Defence elicitors can stimulate plant defence mechanisms through a phenomenon known as priming. Priming results on a faster and/or stronger expression of resistance upon pathogen attack. This work aims to study priming of a commercial formulation of the elicitor Chitosan. Treatments with Chitosan result in induced resistance in solanaceous and brassicaceous plants. Large-scale transcriptomic analysis in this study revealed that Chitosan primes gene expression at early time-points after infection. Four conditions were analysed using microarrays: (i) water-treated and non-infected plants (Water + Mock); (ii) Chitosan-treated and non-infected plants (Chitosan + Mock); (iii) water-treated and B. cinerea-infected plants (Water + B. cinerea); (iv) Chitosan-treated and B. cinerea-infected plants (Chitosan + B. cinerea). Inoculations were performed four days after treatment with Chitosan, and leaf discs from four independent plants (biological replicates) per treatment were sampled at 6 h, 9 h and 12 h post-inoculation (hpi) with water mock or B. cinerea spores.
