About this book

This monograph is written by the world's leading experts in the field of PR-proteins and fills a void in the literature of plant improvement. Pathogenesis-Related Proteins in Plants is the first comprehensive book on plant pathogenesis-related proteins. It summarizes the results from efforts to obtain transgenic plants expressing these transgenes on disease resistance. Sample chapters include plant chitinases, expression and function of PR-Proteins in transgenic rice, and the role of thionins in the resistance of plants.


Occurrence and Properties of Plant Pathogenesis Related Proteins * PR-1, a Group of Plant Proteins Induced upon Pathogen Infection * Functions and Regulation of Plant b-1, 3-glucanases (PR-2) * Plant Chitinases (PR-3, PR-4, PR-8, PR-11) * The PR-5 Family * Thaumatin-Like Proteins The PR-6 Family * Proteinase Inhibitors in Plant-Microbe Interactions * The Response of Plant Cell Wall Hydroxyproline-Rich Glycoproteins to Microbial Pathogens and their Elicitors * Induction of Peroxidase During Defense Against Pathogens * Expression and Function of PR-Proteins in Transgenic Rice * The Role of Thionins in the Resistance of Plants * Ribosome Inactivating Proteins: Structure, Function, and Engineering * Plant Defensins.
