Elicitor from Erysiphe pisi was incorporated into gel beads. Individual beads were placed on single cells from barley coleoptiles. The elicitor induced unusual cytoplasmic responses and temporary resistance to infection in coleoptile cells. The technique is applicable to assessment of elicitor activity at the single-cell level.
