A mitochondrial late embryogenesis abundant protein stabilizes model membranes in the dry state

Tolleter, Dimitri; Hincha, Dirk K; Macherel, David C


Late embryogenesis abundant (LEA) proteins are a highly diverse group of polypeptides expected to play important roles in desiccation tolerance of plant seeds. They are also found in other plant tissues and in some anhydrobotic invertebrates, fungi, protists and prokaryotes. The LEA protein LEAM accumulates in the matrix space of pea (Pisum sativum) mitochondria during late seed maturation. LEAM is an intrinsically disordered protein folding into amphipathic α-helix upon desiccation. This...[Show more]
