Abstract

The amino acid sequence of wheatwin1, a monomeric protein of 125 residues isolated from wheat kernel (variety S. Pastore), is reported. Wheatwin1 is highly homologous (95%) to barwin, a protein from barley seed, which was shown to be related to the C-terminal domain of two proteins encoded by the wound-induced genes win1 and win2 in potato and to a protein encoded by the same domain of the hevein gene (hev1) in rubber tree. Similarly to barwin, wheatwin1 contains six cysteine residuesall linked in disulfide bridges and the N-terminal residue is pyroglutamate. Moreover, structural studies performed on wheatwin1 and win1 protein by predictive methods demonstrated that these proteins and barwin are closely related in the secondary structure also. The high levelof homology found with the product of win1, win2, and hev1 genes strongly suggests that barwin and wheatwin] play a common role in the mechanism of plant defence.
