Transgenic rice expressing a methionine-rich protein

Hagan, Nicholas David


Sulfur amino acid composition is an important determinant of seed protein quality. A chimeric gene encoding Sunflower Seed Albumin (SSA), one of the most sulfur-rich seed storage proteins so far identified, was introduced into rice ( Oryza sativa) in order to modify seed cysteine and methionine content. Analysis of a transgenic line expressing SSA at approximately 7% of total seed protein revealed that the mature grain showed little change in the total sulfur amino acid content compared...[Show more]
