Pathogenesis-related gene, JcPR-10a from Jatropha curcas exhibit RNase and antifungal activity.

The pathogenesis-related proteins have a broad spectrum of roles, ranging from seed germination, development to resistance. The PR-10 is a multigene family differing from other PR proteins in being intracellular, small and acidic with similar 3D structures. We have isolated JcPR-10a cDNA with an ORF of 483 bp from J. curcas, an important biofuel crop grown… CONTINUE READING
