Plant non-specific lipid transfer proteins (ns-LTPs) comprise two families, LTP1s and LTP2s, all structurally stabilized by four native disulfide bonds. Solution and crystal structures of both LTP1s and LTP2s from various plants have been determined. Despite the similarities of their biological function and backbone folds, the biophysical properties of LTP1s and LTP2s differ significantly. In this report, the mechanisms of unfolding and refolding of rice LTP1 and LTP2 have been investigated… CONTINUE READING
