Interaction of insect digestive enzymes with plant protein inhibitors and host-parasite coevolution

Abstract

A complex of new approaches was used to study the insect-plant coevolution by using cereal pest digestive α-amylases and proteinases and their proteinaceous inhibitors in cereals. During evolution, plants can weaken the destructive affects of insect hydrolases at the expense of inhibitors in various ways, including (1) increasing the inhibitor activity and… (More)
