Abstract The refinement to 2· 2 Å resolution of the three-dimensional structure of the seed
storage protein phaseolin from the French bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) via an alternative
crystal form is described. The refined structure reveals details of the molecule hitherto ...

Summary The legume seed reserve protein vicilin has been localized in developing pea
cotyledons by immunogold labelling on sections of glutaraldehyde-osmium-fixed, resin-
embedded tissue. By treating sections with periodate and acid before antibody labelling, a ...

Abstract Amino acid sequence data from vicilin of pea (Pisum sativum L.) were compared
with predicted sequences from complementary DNA species. The sites of potential post-
translational proteolytic cleavage of vicilin precursor polypeptides were located in polar ...

Legumin-like 11S and vicilin-like 7S globulins are the main storage proteins of most
angiosperms and gymnosperms. The subunits of the hexameric legumin are synthesized as
a precursor comprising a N-terminal acidic a-and a C-terminal basic ß-chain. The trimeric ...

Abstract LR White resin combined with post-embedding immunogold labelling was used to
localize the storage protein vicilin within developing pea seed cotyledons by electron
microscopy. Fine structural preservation is comparable to that obtained with Spurr's resin, ...

Vicilin and legumin were extracted from developing seeds at different stages using the
classical method of repeated isoelectric precipitations. The subunits of these two protein
fractions were separated by SDS gel electrophoresis, and it was shown that the sub-unit ...

Seed storage globulins of the 7S and 11S type are synthesized in the seeds of angiosperms
and gymnosperms. We have isolated and characterized a vicilin-like gene expressed in the
cycad Zamia furfuraceae. Sequence comparisons reveal clear similarities to a sucrose- ...

A seed storage protein cDNA was characterized from a library of interior spruce (Picea
glauca/engelmanii complex) cotyledonary stage somatic embryos. The deduced amino acid
sequence predicts a 448 amino acid (50 kDa) polypeptide with 28–38% identity with ...

The expression of Brazil nut storage albumin genes is highly regulated during seed
development. Several sequences in the promoter of one of these genes show homologies
with the target sites of the maize O2 bZIP regulatory protein. We therefore asked whether ...

Vicilin, a 7S globulin of Pisum sativum L. seed, accumulates in protein-storage vacuoles
(protein bodies) of cotyledonary storage-parenchyma cells. The synthesis and proteolytic
processing of various genetically engineered proteins within the leaf and seed of a ...

Abstract In transgenic tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) seed, expression of chimeric [beta]-

is responsive to premature drying and declines upon rehydration (L. Jiang, WL Downing, ...

Variant vicilins (7S storage globulins) of cowpea seeds (Vigna unguiculata) are considered
as the main resistance factor present in some African genotypes against the bruchid
Callosobruchus maculatus. It has been suggested that the toxic properties of vicilins may ...
