In order to clarify further the physiological role of oleosins in seed development, we characterized the oil-body proteins of several oilseeds exhibiting a range of desiccation sensitivities from the recalcitrant (Theobroma cacao L., Quercus rubra L.), intermediate (Coffea arabica L., Azadirachta indica A. Juss.) and orthodox categories (Sterculia setigera Del., Brassica napus L.). The estimated ratio of putative oleosins to lipid in oil bodies of Q. rubra was less than 5% of the equivalent… CONTINUE READING
