Plant lipid transfer proteins (LTPs) are soluble proteins which are characterized by their in vitro ability to transfer phospholipids between two membranes. We have compared the functional properties of two LTPs purified from maize and wheat seeds knowing that, despite a high degree of sequence identity, the two proteins exhibit structural differences. It was found that wheat LTP had a lower transfer activity than the maize LTP, consistent with a lower kinetics of fatty acid binding. The lower… CONTINUE READING
