The family of zein proteins in maize consists of several prototypes whose amino sequence is characterized by a repetitive block structure. We have now isolated and characterized a new series of zein cDNA clones from a cDNA library made from protein-body polysomal mRNA. The nucleotide sequences and the hybrid-selected translation results indicate that anomalous zein genes with termination codons within the coding region are transcribed, translated and possibly accumulated into zein protein… CONTINUE READING
