Studies on the mechanism of resistance of tomato varieties to the root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita (Kofoid & White), indicate that proteins containing hydroxyproline are present in the mitochondria of tomato roots and that the hydroxyproline concentration increases in resistant varieties when these are invaded by the nematode. It is suggested that the difference between nematode resistant and susceptible plants is the capability of developing cyanide-insensitive respiration following the nematode attack.
