Characterization of a Kunitz trypsin inhibitor with a single disulfide bridge from seeds of Inga laurina (SW.) Willd.
TLDR
ILTI was found to be a single polypeptide chain containing 180 amino acids, the sequence of which was clearly homologous to the Kunitz family of serine protease plant protein inhibitors, and it also showed significant similarity to the seed storage proteins, sporamin and miraculin. Expand
A Kunitz-type inhibitor of coleopteran proteases, isolated from Adenanthera pavonina L. seeds and its effect on Callosobruchus maculatus.
TLDR
A trypsin inhibitor (ApTI) isolated from Adenanthera pavonina seeds showed activity against papain and was highly effective against digestive proteinases from C. maculatus, Acanthoscelides obtectus (bean weevil), and Zabrotes subfasciatus (Mexican bean weevil). Expand
Isolation and partial characterization of a novel lectin from Talisia esculenta seeds that interferes with fungal growth
TLDR
A novel plant lectin has been isolated from the seeds of Talisia esculenta and partially characterized and a search of sequence databases showed that the N-terminal sequence had no homology to any known protein. Expand
Purification and characterization of an N-acetylglucosamine-binding lectin from Koelreuteria paniculata seeds and its effect on the larval development of Callosobruchus maculatus (Coleoptera:
TLDR
The transformation of genes coding for this lectin could be useful in the development of insect resistance in important agricultural crops. Expand
A Trypsin Inhibitor from Sapindus saponaria L. Seeds: Purification, Characterization, and Activity Towards Pest Insect Digestive Enzyme
TLDR
SSTI showed significant inhibitory activity against trypsin-like proteases present in the larval midgut on Anagasta kuehniella, Corcyra cephalonica, Diatreae saccharalis and Anticarsia gemmatalis. Expand
Adenanthera pavonina trypsin inhibitor retard growth of Anagasta kuehniella (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae).
TLDR
It is suggested that ApTI have a potential antimetabolic effect when ingested by A. kuehniella, which results in a significant reduction in larval survival and weight. Expand
Purification and characterization of a trypsin inhibitor from Plathymenia foliolosa seeds.
TLDR
PFTI showed significant inhibitory activity against trypsin-like proteases present in the larval midguts on A. kuehniella and D. saccharalis and could suppress the growth of larvae. Expand
Effect of a trypsin inhibitor from Dimorphandra mollis seeds on the development of Callosobruchus maculatus
TLDR
A trypsin inhibitor isolated from Dimorphandra mollis seeds was tested for anti-insect activity against Callosobruchus maculatus larvae and produced 67% mortality to this bruchid when incorporated into an artificial diet at a level of 1%. Expand
Insecticidal and antifungal activity of a protein from Pouteria torta seeds with lectin-like properties.
TLDR
Pouterin inhibited the growth of the fungi Fusarium oxysporum and Colletotrichum musae and of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae and was best inhibited by glycoproteins such as fetuin, asialofetuin, heparin, orosomucoid, and ovoalbumin. Expand
Purification and characterization of a lectin from Annona coriacea seeds.
TLDR
A search sequence database showed that ACLEC had homology with other plant lectins, belonging to leguminous lectin family, and of the sugars tested, Dglucose and D-mannose were the best inhibitors. Expand
