  • Ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs) represent a type of protein that universally inactivates the ribosome thus inhibiting protein biosynthesis. Curcin-L was a type I RIP found in Jatropha curcas L.. Its expression could be activated in leaves by treatments with abscisic acid, salicylic acid, polyethylene glycol, temperature 4, 45°C and ultraviolet light. A 654 bp fragment of a 5′ flanking region preceding the curcin-L gene, designated CP2, was cloned from the J. curcas genome and its… CONTINUE READING
