Pea aphid fed on a high-saponin line of alfalfa showed reduction of reproduction and survival, and disturbance in development of its population. This line negatively influenced aphid probing behaviour, particularly prolonging the non-probing period and probing of the peripheral tissues (epidermis and mesophyll) and shortening the period of phloem sap ingestion. The high-saponin line of alfalfa differed from the low-saponin one by the presence of zanhic acid tridesmoside and a higher level of 3-GlcA,28-AraRhaXyl medicagenic acid glycoside. The saponins incorporated into sucrose-agarose gels significantly reduced number of the aphid probes into the gels and extended their duration in comparison to the control gels (without tested compounds). Role of zanhic acid tridesmoside and 3-GlcA,28-AraRhaXyl medicagenic acid glycoside as potential factors for partial resistance of alfalfa towards the pea aphid is discussed.
