Expression of eight LEA genes enhanced desiccation tolerance in yeast, including two LEA_2 genes encoding atypical, stably folded proteins. The recombinant proteins showed enzyme, but not membrane protection during drying. To screen for possible functions of late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) proteins in cellular stress tolerance, 15 candidate genes from six(More)
Hydrophilins are a group of proteins that are present in all organisms and that have been defined as being highly hydrophilic and rich in glycine. They are assumed to play important roles in cellular dehydration tolerance. There are 12 genes in the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae that encode hydrophilins and most of these genes are stress responsive.(More)
