A multigene family from cereals which encodes inhibitors of trypsin and heterologous a-amylases
Advances in molecular biology of protein inhibitors from plants have greatly increased knowledge of their structure and "in vitro" properties, and have allowed previously unsuspected relationships between functionally different proteins to be established.
Cloning and nucleotide sequence of a cDNA encoding the precursor of the barley toxin a-hordothionin
The deducedThionin sequence is preceded by a leader sequence of 18 residues and followed by a sequence that corresponds to an acidic protein of 64 amino acids, which supports previous evidence indicating that thionin is synthesized as a much larger precursor, which undergoes two processing steps: the cotranslational cleavage of aleader sequence and the post-translational one of a larger peptide.
A multigene family of trypsin/a-amylase inhibitors from cereals
In wheat and barley, a substantial fraction of the total endosperm protein content is represented by toxins and inhibitors that are active towards heterologous systems, and some of them can be selectively extracted with chloroform/methanol mixtures and have therefore been designated CM-proteins.
The thionins: a protein family that includes purothionins, viscotoxins and crambins
Almost half a century ago, a crystalline protein material was obtained from lipid extracts of wheat endosperm and designated "purothionin" (Trvpwo, wheat); this material was found to have baetericidal and fungicidal properties.
Chromosomal locations of genes that control wheat endosperm proteins
Progress in aneuploid analysis of genes controlling proteins has generally depended on advances in protein fractionation and characterization, but in many cases, these genetic analyses have been done on insufficiently characteri/ed groups of proteins, and this has resulted in some confusion.
Large-scale identification of gibberellin-related transcription factor defines group VII ERFs as functional of DELLA partners
The combination of transactivation assays and chromatin immunoprecipitation indicates that the interaction with GIBBERELLin INSENSITIVE impairs the activity of RELATED to APETALA2.3 on the target promoters, which represents a unique node in the cross regulation between the GA and ethylene signaling pathways controlling differential growth during apical hook development.
Chromosomal control of wheat endosperm proteins. A critical review.
Progress made in the chromosomal location of structural genes for wheat endosperm proteins, and in the study of the regulation and quantitative expression of these genes, by using aneuploids and by
Chromosomal location and expression of genes encoding low molecular weight proteins in wheat and related species
A review of recent work on the chromosomal location and expression of genes encoding moderately abundant, presumably non-storage endosperm proteins from wheat, barley and rye is presented. Related
