Effect of Trichoderma viride T1433 on the pectolytic enzyme activity of Rhizopus stolonifer (= R. artocarpi) during the development of soft rot of jackfruit was studied. Activity of different fractions of pectolytic enzymes like PG, PME and PL was investigated during pathogenesis and correspondingly the associated resistance of the host was assayed. It was noticed that the biocontrol agent, Trichoderma significantly interacts with the pectolytic enzyme activity of the pathogen. It caused an appreciable reduction in enzymatic action. The reduction in the activity of polygalacturonase enzyme (PG) was recorded to be the highest among all the fractions of pectolytic enzymes. Such a trend appeared to be more pronounced in 'Kujja' than in 'Ghula' cultivar of jackfruit. The reduction in pectolytic enzyme activity was found to be coupled with a significant increase in the activity of polyphenol oxidase enzyme of the host tissues and a concomitant increase in host phenol content. Such inter-relationship between these two enzyme systems plays a key role to stimulate the defense mechanism of the host plant against infection. Significant increase in total phenol content of the host tissue during Trichoderma plant pathogen interaction that was recorded may correspond with the host defense response.
