Systemic acquired resistance was induced in the second leaves of wheat when the first leaves were infected with incompatible stem rust race or Helminthosporium sativum, or treated by celite or carborundum. Significant changes were found in proteins extracted with acidic buffer from susceptible wheat leaves after infection. Other changes were observed in protein composition of hypersensitively reacting resistant leaves. Only the compatible infection has systemic effect on leaf proteins, indicating that these changes do not play significant role in inducing SAR in wheat against rusts.
