Oligogalacturonides Induce Proteinase Inhibitor Synthesis Via the Octadecanoid Pathway
Proteinase inhibitor proteins are synthesized in leaves of several plant genera in response to localized and systemic signals that are released from sites of insect and pathogen attacks. Several chemical signals have been identified including oligouronides (14), chitosan fragments (15), an 18 amino acid polypeptide, called systemin (13), linolenic acid (4), and its derivative, jasmonic acid (3).
