Project description

Analysis of the available sequence data for e.g. cucumber showed that ribosome-inactivating protheins are expressed, especially under stress conditions. this project aims at a detailled stud of these protheins to check whether they really possess ribosome-inactivating activity. in addition, their physiological role will be evaluated.
