Nucleotide sequence of a cDNA encoding a major rice glutelin


Glutelin and prolamin are major storage proteins of rice endosperm. Glutelin is synthesized by endoplasmic reticulum-bound polysomes, and then transported and deposited into the vacuoles via Golgi apparatus [5]. It has been shown that preproglutelin (59 kDa) is processed to proglutelin (57 kDa) co-translationally, and proglutelin cleaves to form acidic… (More)
