Cleavage of yeast invertase by alpha-chymotrypsin produced a number of small glycopeptides that were highly active as elicitors of ethylene biosynthesis and phenylalanine ammonia-lyase in suspension-cultured tomato cells. Five of these elicitors were purified and their amino acid sequence determined. They all had sequences corresponding to known sequences of yeast invertase, and all contained an asparagine known to carry a N-linked small high mannose glycan. The most active glycopeptide… CONTINUE READING
