Two types of vacuolar sorting signals (VSSs), an asparagine-proline-isoleucine-arginine-leucine (NPIRL)-related VSS in the N-terminal propeptides (NTPPs) and a C-terminal VSS in the C-terminal propeptides (CTPPs), function differently in plant cells. A precursor to a 20-kDa protein of potato tuber (PT20) contains two NPIRL-related sequences, NPINL in a short NTPP and NPLDV close to the C terminus of the precursor. We made mutant forms of sweet potato sporamin (SPO), nPT20-SPO, in which the N… CONTINUE READING
