Plant proteinases and inhibitors: an overview of biological function and pharmacological activity.

Abstract

Proteinases play a fundamental metabolic role during the life cycle in the plant kingdom. By interacting with endogenous or exogenous inhibitors, the proteolytic activity is modulated to meet metabolic requirements. By probing proteolytic enzymes with their inhibitors, it is possible to identify novel functions unrelated to their proteolytic activity. A… (More)
