    Influence of wounding on the expression of the proteinase inhibitor II gene in leaves of transgenic tobacco plants. Tobacco plants (size: 80 cm) were wounded on one leaf by two consecutively. reported to mediate wound-induced proteinase inhibitor II (Pin2) gene expression in tomato and potato plants.

    A transgenic line (called J) containing a single T-DNA insertion was identified by Southern blot analysis. The binding proteins. A plasma membrane protein called phenotype of this line (constitutive accumulation of protein-SBP50 was shown to bind to the N-terminal part of ase inhibitor I, proteinase inhibitor II, and polyphenol oxi-systemin. "Expression of a chimeric proteinase inhibitor II-GUS gene in transgenic Solamim brevidens plants" is prepared to be submitted to the Journal of Plant Physiology, and the third paper, "Induction of cathepsin D inhibitor gene expression in response to methyl jasmonate" is submitted to Physiologia Plantarum.

    Bowman-Birk inhibitor (BBI) genes encode serine protease inhibitors that have repetitive cysteine-rich domains with reactive sites for the trypsin or chymotrypsin family. We have identified seven BBI genes from japonica rice (Oryza sativa subsp. japonica var Teqing). All of the genes identified were found in a single cluster on the southern end of the long arm of rice . Both wounding of the plant as well as signaling molecules result in the formation of jasmonic acid, which then induces the gene expression of proteinase inhibitors. Many other signal cascades as well as the translocation of signal molecules through the phloem and xylem of the plant are also necessary for the production of these inhibitors.

INTRODUCTION. Plant protease inhibitors (PIs) are small proteins, generally present at high concentration in storage tissues (up to 10% of protein content), but also detectable in leaves in response to the attack of insects and pathogenic microorganisms ().PIs’ contribution to plant defense mechanisms relies on inhibition of proteases present in insects’ guts or Cited by: Genes containing the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S promoter fused to open reading frames coding for tomato proteinase inhibitor I, tomato inhibitor II, and potato inhibitor II were expressed in transgenic tobacco plants.

Results. The CPI gene, designated JcCPI, was cloned from ; its sequence shared conserved domains with other plant on a transcription pattern analysis, JcCPI was expressed in all tissues examined, but its expression was highest in the petiole.

Additionally, the expression of JcCPI was induced by salinity stress. A potential role of JcCPI was detected in transgenic E.

In similar experiments with alfalfa plants exposed to methyljasmonate vapor, the. We found that larvae fed on tomato transgenic plants co-expressing both proteinase inhibitors showed a notable reduction in weight.

Moreover, only 56% of these larvae reached the adult stage. The emerged adults showed wings deformities and reduced fertility. In many plants, cysteine proteinases play essential roles in a variety of developmental and physiological processes. In rice (Oryza sativa), REP-1 is a primary cysteine proteinase responsible for the digestion of seed storage proteins to provide nutrients to support the growth of young seedlings.

In the present study, the gene encoding REP-1 was isolated, characterized. Whereas no or little expression of the proteinase inhibitor II gene could be detected in non-wounded leaves, high levels of proteinase inhibitor II mRNA were detected in leaves of several transgenic tobacco plants after mechanical wounding as well as after treatment of detached leaves with oligosaccharides.

The protease inhibitors (PIs) in plants are involved primarily in defense against pathogens and pests and in response to abiotic stresses. However, information about the PI gene families in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), one of the most important model plant for crop species, is limited.

In this study, in silico analysis identified 55 PI genes and their conserved domains. The effect of progressive 5[prime] deletions within a potato proteinase inhibitor II promoter on wound-inducible expression of the chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) gene in leaves of transgenic tobacco plants was analyzed.

After deletion of a region ranging from position to with respect to the transcription start site, promoter activity was markedly reduced but still.
