Panax pseudo-ginseng var. notoginseng is a traditional Chinese medicinal herb cultivated on a large scale in Yunnan and Guangxi Provinces, China. Pseudo-ginseng is often attacked by Fusarium solani, causing pseudo-ginseng root rot disease. In order to facilitate the development of root rot disease resistant cultivars, the protein profiles of healthy roots and infected roots were generated and compared. Silver stained SDS-PAGE gels and Coomassie brilliant blue stained gels were analyzed. The results indicated that the infected pseudo-ginseng tissue samples had different protein profiles and less number of protein bands than that of the healthy tissues. The healthy hairy side roots had less protein bands than the mature tap root tissues.
