Title: Barley family five pathogenesis-related proteins / by Ronald Ian William Osmond.
Author: Osmond, Ronald Ian William
Issue Date: 2000
School/Discipline: Dept. of Plant Science
Abstract: The work described in this thesis was designed to investigate one component of the plant's defence against pathogen attack, namely the production of PR-5 proteins... Several roles have been proposed for PR-5 proteins including adaption of plant cells to osmotic stress, antifreeze activity, polysaccharide hydrolase activity, fungal plasma membrane pore forming activity, and a-amylase/trypsin inhibition. The experiments that are described in the thesis were aimed at defining the function of barley PR-5 proteins.(abstract)
