High impact information on Cp1


Biological context of Cp1


Associations of Cp1 with chemical compounds

  • One of these systems may be based on the occurrence of phytocystatins, cysteine proteinase inhibitors of plant origin, that probably inhibit insect cysteine proteinases involved in digestive functions [6].
