Ribosome-inactivating proteins (RIPs) have long been known to have antiviral properties, since the first characterized type 1 RIP, Pokeweed antiviral protein, was found. Since then, antifungal activity has also been reported. This chapter will discuss the models and data that support each activity and the possible methods of use of these important areas of plant pathogen protection.
