Polygalacturonases (PGs) are produced by fungal pathogens during early plant infection and are believed to be important pathogenicity factors. Polygalacturonase-inhibiting proteins (PGIPs) are plant defense proteins which reduce the hydrolytic activity of endoPGs and favor the accumulation of long-chain oligogalacturonides (OGs) which are elicitors of a variety of defense responses. PGIPs belong to the superfamily of leucine reach repeat (LRR) proteins which also include the products of several plant resistance genes. A number of evidence demonstrates that PGIPs efficiently inhibit fungal invasion.

Abstract

Polygalacturonases (PGs) are produced by fungal pathogens during early plant infection and are believed to be important pathogenicity factors. Polygalacturonase-inhibiting proteins (PGIPs) are plant defense proteins which reduce the hydrolytic activity of endoPGs and favor the accumulation of long-chain oligogalacturonides (OGs) which are elicitors of a variety of defense responses. PGIPs belong to the superfamily of leucine reach repeat (LRR) proteins which also include the products of several plant resistance genes. A number of evidence demonstrates that PGIPs efficiently inhibit fungal invasion.
