Response model of T. cacao genotypes during M. perniciosa infection through proteomic approaches. The response of the susceptible (Catongo) and resistant (TSH1188) genotypes to M. perniciosa infection vary mainly due the differential protein expression observed by 2D-PAGE-LC/MSMS approach applied in this study. Proteins expression patterns reflect biological functions such as metabolism and energy, oxidative stress, photosynthesis and stress and defense. In general, resistance genotype is mainly related to the early and intense activation of defense pathways/signaling. Nevertheless, the susceptible genotype not only present latter and less intense activation of the mentioned biological functions, but they may be carried out by different proteins from the same biological functions compared to resistant genotype, which can be strongly related to the differential response observed between the evaluated genotypes
