Patatins are a group of plant storage glycoproteins that show lipid acyl hydrolase activity (Andrews et al., 1988). The patatin-associated lipolytic activity may be a means of defence against plant parasites (Strickland et al., 1995) and has been shown to function in plant signal transduction (Holk et al., 2002). Hirschberg et al. (2001) found that potato patatin B2 and human cytosolic phospholipase A2 (cPLA2) share conserved domains of protein homology and therefore predicted that patatin B2… CONTINUE READING
