The protein and mRNA levels of late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) genes may be linked to osmotic stresses. Here, we characterized three soybean hydrophilic LEA proteins--GmPM11 (LEA I), GmPM6 (LEA II), and GmPM30 (LEA III)--by circular dichroism and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Structural analysis revealed that the LEA proteins adopted high amounts of disordered conformations in solution and underwent conformational changes with hydrophobicity and desiccation induction… CONTINUE READING
