The localization of cysteine proteinase PLCP-2 was investigated in potato plants (Solanum tuberosum L.) cultivar Désirée by electron microscopy. Healthy and PVYNTN infected potato plants were grown in vitro on media with or without a supplement of jasmonic acid. We had already shown that PLCP-2 is present in leaves, stems, tips of shoots and tips of roots of healthy and PVYNTN infected plants. It was detected in various cell types in protein bodies in vacuoles, in cytoplasm and in cell walls. There were significantly larger amounts of PLCP-2 in plants grown on medium with a supplement of jasmonic acid in both healthy and virus infected plants. More protein bodies in vacuoles were found in plants grown on medium with addition of jasmonic acid.
