Family

Prosystemin/Systemin (IPR009966)

Short name: Prosystemin/Systemin

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of several plant specific Systemin and Prosystemin proteins. Systemin is processed from a larger prohormone protein, called prosystemin, by proteolytic cleavages [PMID: 10708853]. Systemin activates a lipid-based signal transduction pathway in which linolenic acid is converted to jasmonic acid, a potent activator of defense gene transcription, including proteinase inhibitor [PMID: 10708853].
