Title: Optimized thionin protects plants against bacterial infections

Abstract

Two small proteins with anti-bacterial activity are generated and called optimized thionin and optimized pro-thionin. Optimized pro-thionin contains a signal sequence for intracellular trafficking of the protein and is cleaved off to yield optimized thionin. Genetically altered plants and their progeny expressing a polynucleotide encoding optimized pro-thionin or optimized thionin resist diseases caused by bacteria.
