Abstract

The effect of the tetrapeptide des-arg -enterostatin (Val-Pro-Asp-Pro) on the growth of muang bean, Vigna rodiate, was studied. At a concentration of 0.2mM in the nutrient solution the peptide reduced the growth significantly. Possible mechanisms underlying the growth inhibition are discussed.
