  In incompatible pathogenesis (hypersensitive pathogenesis) there are
  direct defence enzymes - hydrolases such as chitinases and glucanases.
  Then there are enzymes which catalyse the production of various 
  metabolites participating in resistance (phytoalexins, ethylene, etc.).
  All these enzymes are induced by the pathogen itself.
