Protein kinase CK2 modulates developmental functions of the abscisic acid responsive protein Rab17 from maize.
The maize abscisic acid responsive protein Rab17 is a highly phosphorylated late embryogenesis abundant protein involved in plant responses to stress. In this study, we provide evidence of theExpand

The maize abscisic acid-responsive protein Rab17 is located in the nucleus and interacts with nuclear localization signals.
The maize abscisic acid (ABA)-responsive rab17 mRNA and Rab17 protein distribution in maize embryo tissues was investigated by in situ hybridization and immunocytochemistry. rab17 mRNA and Rab17Expand

Gene sequence, developmental expression, and protein phosphorylation of RAB-17 in maize
The ABA-induced MA12 cDNA from maize, which encodes a set of highly phosphorylated embryo proteins, was used to isolate the corresponding genomic clone. This gene, called RAB-17 (responsive to ABA),Expand

Phosphorylation mediates the nuclear targeting of the maize Rab17 protein.
The maize abscisic acid-responsive Rab17 protein localizes to the nucleus and cytoplasm in maize cells. In-frame fusion of Rab17 to the reporter protein beta-glucuronidase (GUS) directed GUS to theExpand

Towards the identification of late-embryogenic-abundant phosphoproteome in Arabidopsis by 2-DE and MS.
Late-embryogenesis-abundant (LEA) proteins accumulate as plant seeds desiccate and also in vegetative organs during periods of stress. They are predicted to play a role in plant stress tolerance. InExpand

Insights into Maize LEA proteins: from proteomics to functional approaches.
LEA (late embryogenesis abundant) proteins participate in plant stress tolerance responses, but the mechanisms by which protection occurs are not fully understood. In the present work the unfoldedExpand

Plant responses to drought, from ABA signal transduction events to the action of the induced proteins
The plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) is necessary for the regulation of several aspects during seed development and for the response to environmental stresses such as desiccation, salt and cold. AnExpand

Phosphorylation of maize RAB-17 protein by casein kinase 2.
The maize gene RAB-17, which is responsive to abscisic acid, encodes a basic glycine-rich protein containing, in the middle part of its sequence, a cluster of 8 serine residues followed by a putativeExpand

LC-MSMS identification of Arabidopsis thaliana heat-stable seed proteins: enriching for LEA-type proteins by acid treatment.
Protein identification in systems containing very highly abundant proteins is not always efficient and usually requires previous enrichment or fractionation steps in order to uncover minor proteins.Expand

Insights into Late Embryogenesis Abundant (LEA) Proteins in Plants: From Structure to the Functions
Late Embryogenesis Abundant (LEA) proteins, a group of hydrophilic proteins, have been linked to survival in plants and animals in periods of stress, putatively through safeguarding enzymaticExpand
