Irreversible enzyme inhibitors in plants

Post by MrsSpoonbill » Mon Sep 28, 2009 5:17 pm

Does anyone know of an example of an irreversible enzyme inhibitor produced by a plant (for example, as a defence compound)? My extensive searches have failed to find one, but I'm sure there must be at least one out there. Note: I am interested in irreversible inhibitors which are synthesised by the plants themselves, not those produced by pests, pathogens or chemists. Thanks for any help you can give.

If you have access to journal articles via a database that would be a good resource.
