Expression of genes encoding PR10 class pathogenesis-related proteins is inhibited in yellow lupine root nodules
Abstract Pathogenesis-related proteins of the PR10 class have been found in many plant species, are induced under various stress conditions and act as common allergens. Here we demonstrate theExpand

Immunoprotective properties of transgenic plants expressing E2 glycoprotein from CSFV and cysteine protease from Fasciola hepatica.
Immune responses were elicited in laboratory animals after oral vaccination by transgenic plants (lettuce and alfalfa) expressing the E2 glycoprotein of Classical Swine Fever Virus (CSFV) or cysteineExpand

Bayesian phylogenetic analysis reveals two-domain topology of S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase protein sequences.
S-Adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase (SahH) is involved in the degradation of the compound which inhibits methylation reactions. Using a Bayesian approach and other methods, we reconstructed aExpand

Differential expression and evolutionary analysis of the three ferritin genes in the legume plant Lupinus luteus
We identified three genes coding for ferritins in the legume plant - yellow lupine (LlFer1, LlFer2, LlFer3). Proteins coded by these genes have a typical 'plant' structure, and precursors of theirExpand
