Composition of the fatty acid fraction of zeins with various degrees of purification

Abstract

It has been shown that maize zeins are associated with lipids mainly of saturated nature. The process of quantitative repression of prolamines in maize grain under the action of the mutant gene opaque-2 is accompanied by a change in the associative properties with substances of lipid nature. A covalent nature of the zein polypeptide-lipid (fatty acid) bond… (More)
