Potato inhibitor II (Pin-II) proteins are plant serine proteinase inhibitors (PIs) that occur in various plant species. Pin-II PIs are characterized by inhibitory repeat domains (IRDs) which form their functional units and show extensive sequence variation. Various studies have been conducted to gauge the occurrence (spatial and temporal) of Pin-II PIs and their appearance in response to biotic stresses mainly herbivore attack. Many hypotheses have been proposed to justify the mechanism which… CONTINUE READING
