The wheat leaf apoplast contains a protein that inhibits trypsin and belongs to the family of germin-like proteins called germin-like protease inhibitor (GLPI). Since it was first described in our laboratory, the objective of this study was to find out if GLPI is a new germin-like protein and to identify the molecular site responsible for its inhibitory action. Amino acid sequence fragments of GLPI have been determined using mass spectrometry and used to synthesize complementary DNA by reverse… CONTINUE READING
