Biotechnology, 2007, 6(3), 389-392.


Boerhavia diffusa is a medicinally important plant. Root of Boerhavia diffusa contain basal proteins which show high virus inhibitory activity against plant viruses. Root extract of this plant induce strong systemic resistance in susceptible host plant. In the present study we found that the BD-SRIP induces the resistance against the TMV infection. The explant developed from the media containing the BD-SRIP extract show less degree of susceptibility against the viral infection.
