A cDNA encoding a cysteine proteinase inhibitor was isolated from a cDNA library prepared from developing seeds of an insect-resistant line of cowpea. The sequence of the encoded protein was homologous with those of other plant cysteine endoproteinase inhibitors, and with Type 2 cystatins from animals. Southern blot analyses indicated that small gene families were present in both resistant and susceptible lines of cowpea, while northern blot analyses showed similar levels of expression. It is… CONTINUE READING
