Role of O-acetyl-l-serine in the coordinated regulation of the expression of a soybean seed storage-protein gene by sulfur and nitrogen nutrition


The composition of seed storage proteins is regulated by sulfur and nitrogen supplies. Under conditions of a low sulfur-to-nitrogen ratio, accumulation of the β-subunit of β-conglycinin, a sulfur-poor seed storage protein of soybean (Glycine max [L.] Merr.), is elevated, whereas that of glycinin, a sulfur-rich storage protein, is reduced. Using transgenic… (More)
