Genomic cloning of 18 kDa oleosin and detection of triacylglycerols and oleosin isoforms in maturing rice and postgerminative seedlings.


Oleosins are hydrophobic proteins localized abundantly in the oil bodies of plant seeds. Two distinct oleosin isoforms of molecular masses 18 and 16 kDa are present in rice oil bodies. These isoforms were found in similar ratio in rice embryos and aleurone layers. To survey potential DNA sequences involved in the activation of oleosin genes, a genomic clone… (More)
