  • Feeding on poplar leaves by caterpillars potentiates foliar peroxidase action in their guts and increases plant resistance. Barbehenn, Raymond; Dukatz, Chris; Holt, Chris; Reese, Austin; Martiskainen, Olli; Salminen, Juha-Pekka; Yip, Lynn; Tran, Lan; Constabel, C. // Oecologia;Dec2010, Vol. 164 Issue 4, p993 

    Peroxidases (PODs) are believed to act as induced and constitutive defenses in plants against leaf-feeding insects. However, little work has examined the mode of action of PODs against insects. Putative mechanisms include the production of potentially antinutritive and/or toxic semiquinone free...
