The level of proteolytic activity in tissues of oat seedlings was characterized under acidic conditions, and the number and content of the main components in low-molecular-mass fractions of the extract were determined. The structures of the majority of predominant peptide components isolated from the extract were studied. The use of a database of protein structures helped suggest possible structures of protein precursors of the peptides isolated. Detailed information on a plant peptidome was obtained for the first time.
