In the present work, we describe the cDNA cloning, expression in Pichia pastoris, purification, and characterization of the recombinant Pisum sativum defensin 1 (rPsd1), a novel Cys-rich protein(More)
Pisum sativum defensin 1 (Psd1) is a 46 amino acid residue plant defensin isolated from seeds of pea. The three-dimensional structure in solution of Psd1 was determined by two-dimensional NMR data(More)
Plant defensins are small cysteine-rich proteins that present high activity against fungi and bacteria and inhibition of insect proteases and alpha-amylases. Here, we present the expression in Pichia(More)
The methylotrophic yeast Pichia pastoris was used to produce the recombinant Pisum sativum defensin (rPsd1), a small peptide from pea seeds that has a high level of antifungal activity. The plasmid(More)
