Seed Proteins

This volume is the most comprehensive and detailed account of seed proteins so far published and the first dedicated volume for a number of years. It covers the major storage protein groups (prolamins, 2S albumins, 7Sglobulins, and 11S globulins), focusing on those present in crops. It also covers o...

Summary:This volume is the most comprehensive and detailed account of seed proteins so far published and the first dedicated volume for a number of years. It covers the major storage protein groups (prolamins, 2S albumins, 7Sglobulins, and 11S globulins), focusing on those present in crops. It also covers other widely distributed groups of proteins including lectins, inhibitors, antifungal proteins, thionins and oil body protein (oleosins).The breadth of coverage of the proteins is wide, including their structures and properties, evolutionary relationships, classical and molecular genetics and mechanisms of synthesis, trafficking and deposition within thecells. It should therefore become a standard source book for active research scientists as well as for higher level teaching
