Plant proteinaceous inhibitors of hydrolases from heterologous systems (fungi, insects, vertebrates, etc.) have been extensively studied. Recent advances in the molecular biology of these inhibitors have greatly increased our knowledge of their structure and in vitro properties, and have allowed previously unsuspected relationships between functionally different proteins to be established. 
Cereal α-amylase/trypsin inhibitors and transgenic insect resistance
TLDR
Preliminary data with other transgenically expressed members of the family confirmed the potential of these inhibitors for increasing insect resistance in genetically modified plants (GMP), and aimed at complementing an integrated pest management system, by amplifying the natural variability outside the species barrier.
Structure, Function and Protein Engineering of Cereal-Type Inhibitors Acting on Amylolytic Enzymes
TLDR
Focus will be on target enzyme specificity, molecular recognition, forces and mechanisms of binding as well as on three-dimensional structures of CM-protein–enzyme complexes, which are predicted across poaceae genomes and many isoforms are identified in seed proteomes.
A Review: Biological and Technological Functions of Barley Seed Pathogenesis- Related Proteins (PRs)
TLDR
The current knowledge on PRs structural and functional properties is summarized in an attempt to illustrate their importance in barley seed innate resistance and a platform to understand PRs technological function in cereal foods and in beverage processing and quality is provided.
Full‐fledged proteomic analysis of bioactive wheat amylase inhibitors by a 3‐D analytical technique: Identification of new heterodimeric aggregation states
TLDR
A proteomic approach for the identification of bioactive α‐AIs from wheat and, in particular, a 3‐D technique that allows to best identify and characterize the dimeric fraction is described.
Structural, Biological, and Evolutionary Relationships of Plant Food Allergens Sensitizing via the Gastrointestinal Tract
TLDR
The properties, structures, and evolutionary relationships of these protein families, the allergens that belong to them, and the role protein structure may play in determining protein allergenicity are described.
Wheat ATIs: Characteristics and Role in Human Disease
TLDR
An integrated account of this range of research on Amylase/trypsin-inhibitors is presented, identifying inconsistencies, and gaps in knowledge and identifying future research needs.
Purification and Functional Characterization of the Chloroform/Methanol-Soluble Protein 3 (CM3) From Triticum aestivum in Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
It is suggested that inhibition of α-glucosidase by CM3 enhances disaccharide load in the distal gastrointestinal tract, thereby promoting intestinal bacteria overgrowth and contributing to the development of gastrointestinal symptoms observed in NCWS patients which are very similar to symptoms of patients with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth.
The spectrum of low molecular weight alpha-amylase/protease inhibitor genes expressed in the US bread wheat cultivar Butte 86
TLDR
Information on the spectrum of alpha-amylase/protease inhibitor genes and proteins expressed in a single wheat cultivar is central to understanding the importance of these proteins in both plant defense mechanisms and human allergies and facilitates both breeding and biotechnology approaches for manipulating the composition ofThese proteins in plants.

A multigene family from cereals which encodes inhibitors of trypsin and heterologous a-amylases
TLDR
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.
Trypsin/α-amylase inhibitors and thionins: possible defence proteins from barley
TLDR
The genomic distribution of protein genes in barley and related species, gene expression and in vitro activities are considered, and some of the evidence of a possible defence role against stored products pests for inhibitors and thionins is briefly discussed.
Plant proteinaceous inhibitors of proteinases and alpha-amylases
TLDR
The present review will emphasize the novel aspects of different ct-amylase inhibitors with different types of proteinase inhibitors, glossing over many important topics that have been adequately covered before.
Divergence in properties of two closely related α‐amylase inhibitors of barley
The only inhibitor of human salivary α-amylase identified so far in Hordeum has been isolated from barley cv. Bomi endosperm. This protein has the same N-terminal sequence (23 residues), molecular
Purification and properties of a trypsin inhibitor from barley.
TLDR
A trypsin inhibitor present in ungerminated barley in relatively high concentration has been obtained in apparently pure form and is totally inactive against chymotrypsin and pepsin, proteolytic enzymes of germinating barley, and a number of microbial proteinases.
Wheat Inhibitors of Heterologous alpha-Amylases : Characterization of Major Components from the Monomeric Class.
TLDR
Four major components of the wheat monomeric alpha-amylase inhibitors (WMAI) from wheat, Triticum aestivum, endosperm have been isolated and characterized and their N-terminal amino acid sequences indicate that they are closely related to each other and to the other members of the family.
