  • Key message
    • The data obtained in this research indicate that OsRIP1 can play a role in plant defense against herbivorous insects
    • OsRIP1 inactivated insect ribosomes in vitro, suggesting that its toxicity relates to the enzymatic activity of OsRIP1
    • Furthermore, recombinant OsRIP1 was toxic for brown planthoppers when administered through liquid artificial diet
    • Over-expression of OsRIP1 in transgenic rice plants did not affect the performance of insects reared on these plants, most likely due to insufficient concentrations of OsRIP1 in the phloem
