Abstract
We aim to understand their physiological role of barley CysProt and their inhibitors, the cystatins, on the mobilization of storage proteins in the barley grain during germination. Up to now, we have molecularly characterised at least one member of each of the 8 main groups in which the 32 barley CysProt have been clustered. In addition, we have also characterised the whole cystatin gene family encoding cystatins from barley. Currently we are analyzing the protease-cystatin relationships upon seed germination: spatial and temporal expression patterns, protein locations, protein-protein interactions, identification of reserve proteins in the seed as putative targets, proteolytic activity germination process and finally their implication in the mobilization of reserves.
