Legumin-like 11S and vicilin-like 7S globulins are the main storage proteins of most angiosperms and gymnosperms. The subunits of the hexameric legumin are synthesized as a precursor comprising a N-terminal acidic α- and a C-terminal basic β-chain. The trimeric vicilin molecule consists of subunits composed of two symmetrical N- and C-terminal structural domains. In a multiple alignment we have compared the N-terminal and C-terminal domains of 11 legumns and seven vicilins of several dicot… CONTINUE READING
