Engineered oryzacystatin-I expressed in transgenic hairy roots confers resistance to Globodera pallida.

The cysteine proteinase inhibitor, oryzacystatin-I (Oc-I), and several engineered Oc-I variants have been tested for efficacy in inhibiting growth and development of both the free-living nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans, and the plant parasitic nematode Globodera pallida. To assist in the design of protein engineering experiments to improve the efficacy of… CONTINUE READING
