2. Detoxification or metabolism. Metabolism within
the fungal cell is one mechanism a disease pathogen
uses to detoxify a foreign compound such as a
fungicide. A fungus with the ability to quickly
degrade a fungicide can potentially inactivate it
before it can reach its site of action.
3. Removal. A fungal cell may
rapidly export the fungicide
before it can reach the target
site of action.
