It was shown previously that when peas (Pisum sativum L.) are grown with suboptimal sulfur supply the level of legumin (the more S-rich of the two major seed storage proteins) in the mature seed is selectively reduced (Randall, Thomson, Schroeder, 1979 Aust J Plant Physiol 6: 11-24). This paper reports a study of the cellular mechanisms involved in regulating legumin synthesis under these conditions. Pulse and pulse-chase labeling experiments were carried out with excised, immature cotyledons… CONTINUE READING
