Identification and partial characterization of two cysteine proteases from castor bean leaves (Ricinus communis L.) activated by wounding and methyl jasmonate stress


Jasmonates are signaling molecules that play key roles in wound response and regulate the biosynthesis of many defensive proteins, including proteases. In this study, we investigate the effects of wounding and methyl jasmonate (MJ) application on the protein expression pattern of Ricinus communis L. leaves and on proteolytic activity.
