develops spontaneous lesions resembling those produced during a pathogen-induced rapid cell death response (the hypersensitive response, HR); typical HR characteristics occur both within the necrotic tissue and within the healthy part of the plant, including: modification of plant cell walls, resistance to bacterial pathogens and accumulation of defense-related gene transcripts, the signal molecule salicylic acid and an antimicrobial compound.
