Structure of a liganded type 2 non-specific lipid-transfer protein from wheat and the molecular basis of lipid binding.

Abstract

In plants, a family of ubiquitous proteins named non-specific lipid-transfer proteins (ns-LTPs) facilitates the transfer of fatty acids, phospholipids and steroids between membranes. Recent data suggest that these secreted proteins play a key role in the formation of cuticular wax layers and in defence mechanisms against pathogens. In this study, X-ray… (More)
