Group-2 late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) proteins, also known as dehydrins, are claimed to stabilize macromolecules against damage caused by freezing, dehydration, ionic or osmotic stresses. However, their precise function remains unknown. Here, we investigated the effect of wheat dehydrin (DHN-5) protein on the activity and thermostability of two distinct enzymes, beta-glucosidase (bglG) and glucose oxidase/peroxidase (GOD/POD) in vitro. The purified DHN-5 protein had the capacity to preserve… CONTINUE READING
