Abstract:

The major lipid transfer protein has been purified from sunflower seeds and its amino acid sequence determined. An homology model has been built based on the rice LTP, which suggests that the protein can bind palmitic acid. The sequence may therefore correspond to previously characterized proteins with lipid transfer and antifungal activities.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
