Analysis of defensin peptide coding sequence isolated from Egyptian maize (Zea mays L.). The isolated sequence consisted of a single open reading frame (ORF) of 108 bp encoding for predicted signal peptide of 34 amino acids long (a). The tertiary structure of its deduced amino acids generated by SWISS-Model homology analysis showed a common defensin tertiary structure of two α-helix and three antiparallel β-sheets, arranged as αβαββ and stabilized by the intermolecular disulfide bonds between cysteine residues (b)
