Dr. Blanco Labra Alejandro

Laboratory  of Plant's Defense Mechanisms

 

Proteins involved in defense mechanisms, including the quaternary structure of the polyphenol oxidase of grape. Analysis of different enzyme inhibitors, including their isolation, biochemical and molecular characterization and effects on the growth and development of certain insects. Great potential has been found for the significant effects of inhibitors on the growth, development and metastasis of certain types of cancer.
