Technical Abstract: We examined the gene expression of transgenic tomato plants that over-express the plant defense peroxidase in comparison to the control tomato plants with normal levels of peroxidase. In general, jasmonate-related plant defenses such as putative protease inhibitors were suppressed in peroxidase-related transgenic plants. While some abscisic acid-related genes appear to be stimulated in the transgenic plants. Other subsets of genes will be discussed.
