Phagocytosis in plants

, : Phagocytosis in plants. Rep. 3rd int. Congr. compar. Path, 1: 2, 73-81

Applied to plants, the term phagocytosis is defined by the author as the digestion of microscopic parasites by the cells into which they have penetrated. The process is best known in plants possessing endo-trophic mycorrhiza. When the seeds of Orchidaceae are entered by the symbiotic fungus some of them destroy the mycelium by intra-cellular digestion, thus arresting the invasion; symbiosis then cannot be established, and germination does not occur.

Loss of heterozygosity (LOH) at chromosome arm 16q is frequently observed in human breast cancer, suggesting that one or more target tumor suppressor genes (TSGs) are located there. However, detailed mapping of the smallest region of LOH has not y...
