Cystatins and their putative targets, the families of cysteine proteinases C1A and C13 play key roles in plants. Comparative genomic analyses are powerful tools to obtain valuable insights into the conservation and evolution of the proteinases and their proteinaceous inhibitors, and could aid to elucidate issues concerning the function of these proteins. We have performed an evolutionary comparative analysis of cysteine proteinases C1A and C13 and their putative inhibitors in representative… CONTINUE READING
