Abstractβ-Conglycinin, a major seed protein in soybean, is composed of α, α′, and β subunits sharing a high homology among them. Despite its many health benefits, β-conglycinin has a lower amino acid score and lower functional gelling properties compared to glycinin, another major soybean seed protein. In addition, the α, α′, and β subunits also contain major allergens. A wild soybean (Glycinesoja Sieb et Zucc.) line, ‘QT2’, lacks all of the β-conglycinin subunits, and the deficiency is… CONTINUE READING
