13 p, 4.1 MB Relevant elements of a Maize γ-zein domain involved in protein body biogenesis / Llop-Tous, Immaculada (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Madurga, Sergio (Universitat de Barcelona. Departament de Química Física) ; Giralt, Ernest (Institut de Recerca Biomèdica. Parc Científic de Barcelona) ; Marzabal, Pablo (ERA Biotech) ; Torrent, Margarita (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Ludevid, M. Dolors (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica)
The N-terminal proline-rich domain of γ-zein (Zera) plays an important role in protein body (PB) formation not only in the original host (maize seeds) but in a broad spectrum of eukaryotic cells. However, the elements within the Zera sequence that are involved in the biogenesis of PBs have not been clearly identified. [...]

11 p, 1.0 MB The expression of a xylanase targeted to ER-protein bodies provides a simple strategy to produce active insoluble enzyme polymers in tobacco plants / Llop Tous, Immaculada (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Ortiz Alcaide, Miriam (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Torrent, Margarita (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Ludevid, M. Dolors (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica)
Background: Xylanases deserve particular attention due to their potential application in the feed, pulp bleaching and paper industries. We have developed here an efficient system for the production of an active xylanase in tobacco plants fused to a proline-rich domain (Zera) of the maize storage protein γ-zein. [...]

Background: Protein bodies (PBs) are natural endoplasmic reticulum (ER) or vacuole plant-derived organelles that stably accumulate large amounts of storage proteins in seeds. The proline-rich N-terminal domain derived from the maize storage protein γ zein (Zera) is sufficient to induce PBs in non-seed tissues of Arabidopsis and tobacco. [...]
