Biological function
PR proteins are proteins encoded by the host plant which are specifically formed in response to pathogen attacks or comparable stress factors.

Based on their primary amino acid structure, their serological relation and/or their enzymatic or biological activities, PR proteins are classified into 14 groups.

PR proteins do not only accumulate in the leaf inoculated by the pathogen. In connection with what is referred to as systemic acquired resistance (SAR), the formation of PR proteins is also induced systemically.

As a consequence of SAR, the plants are largely or fully protected against later infections with the same or even another pathogen.
