The activity and location of cathepsin D inhibitor in seeds of common vetch (Vicia sativa L.)

W Roszkowska-Jakimiec, J Leśniewska
The activity of cathepsin D inhibitor is markedly higher in common vetch seed coat than in embryo cotyledons. The occurrence of considerable amounts of the inhibitor in the seed coat of vetch was confirmed by the fluorescent microscopic technique, with the use of fluorescein-marked cathepsin D.
