Frontiers | The cuticle and plant defense to pathogens

Chloroform extracts of wax from wheat leaf surfaces induce appressorium in Puccinia graminis f.sp. tritici (Reisige et al., 2006). Appressorium formation in the rice pathogen M. grisea is induced by leaf wax of rice or other plants or synthetic n-C22 fatty acid, fatty alcohol or alkane (Hegde and Kolattukudy, 1997).

Plants | Free Full-Text | Chemical Composition of

The extracellular surface of plant leaves is covered by a hydrophobic layer known as the cuticle, which is composed primarily of cutin, an insoluble polyester of hydroxyfatty acids, glycerol and complex mixtures of waxes that are deposited within and above the structural cutin matrix [1,2,3].Cuticular waxes vary between plant species and are composed of different organic solvent-soluble lipids

Composite structure of the crystalline epicuticular wax

The highest force was measured on the plant surface lacking wax. On the plant substrates covered with wax, insects generated the lowest force. There was no significant difference in the beetles' performances on waxy plant surfaces either with only one lower wax layer, or with both lower and upper wax

Very-long-chain fatty acids have an essential role in

Studies on Arabidopsis plants expressing reduced levels of KCS, KCR, and ECR have indicated that VLCFA synthesis plays an essential role in organ formation by producing cuticular wax on the plant’s surface (Millar & Kunst 1997; Millar et al. 1999; Todd et al. 1999; Yephrmov et al. 1999; Fiebig et al. 2000; Zheng et al. 2005; Lee et al. 2009
