Abstract

Plant nonspecific lipid-transfer proteins stimulate the transfer of a broad range of lipids between membranes in vitro. In view of their ability to inhibit bacterial and fungal pathogens, their distribution at high concentrations over exposed surfaces and in the vascular system, and the response of Ltp-gene expression to infection with pathogens, they are now thought to be active plant-defense proteins.
