Protein involved in hypersensitive response, a complex and early defense response that causes necrosis and cell death to restrict the growth of a pathogen. Local and systemic biochemical changes include generation of active oxygen species (oxidative burst), cell death, overproduction of lignin-related materials, and the induction of certain proteins such as pathogen related (PR) proteins.
