Pest and disease protection conferred by expression of barley �-hordothionin and Nicotiana alata proteinase inhibitor genes in transgenic tobacco

Charity, Julia; Hughes, Peter; Anderson, Marilyn; Bittisnich, D; Whitecross, Malcolm; Higgins, T J V


Proteinase inhibitors and thionins are among the many proteins thought to have a role in plant defence against pests and pathogens. Complementary DNA clones encoding the precursors of a multi-domain proteinase inhibitor from Nicotiana alata Link et Otto (NA-PI) (Mr approximately 43 000) and a β-hordothionin (β-HTH) (Mr approximately 13 000) from barley, were linked to constitutive promoters and subsequently transferred by Agrobacterium-mediated transformation into tobacco. The NA-PI and β-HTH...[Show more]
